Scratch that: Outlets including the BBC and the AP reported that Madonna had applied to adopt two children in Malawi, but the Material Girl has since refuted those reports. "I am in Malawi to check on the children's hospital in Blantyre and my other work with Raising Malawi, and then heading home," she tells Us. "The rumors of an adoption process are untrue." Madonna, 58, flew into Malawi on Tuesday and a government spokesperson had confirmed to the aforementioned news outlets that she appeared in High Court in the country's capital on Wednesday.

Citing local reports, the Telegraph said she was seen carrying one child after the hearing, while another person from her group carried a second child. A court spokesperson had also said that the singer, who has already adopted two children from Malawi, would need to wait a week before learning the court's decision. (The Secret Service is rumored to be investigating Madonna.)
