Madonna va encore adopter au Malawi?
Madonna's African orphan number three?
By Clemmie Moodie's 3am with Sarah Tetteh
C'mon, Madge, it's been over a year and there hasn't even been a hint of you adopting again.
But fear not, I'm told the 51-year-old Material Gran Girl is packing her bags in readiness for her regular visit to catch-up with her African buddies...
And maybe, just maybe, find herself a new little bubba to coo over too? Adopted tot No2 cutie Mercy Grace has apparently been pleading with her superstar mum for another brother or sister.
And now Madge has confirmed with Malawian officials a pre-Christmas trip to the country, where she adopted Mercy, five, and David Banda, eight.
A source tells me: "Madonna likes nothing more than rolling up her sleeves and shoving her paws down a blocked well. She likes to do her bit.
"When she adopted David she promised his dad she'd stay in touch and visit often. While Mercy Grace is pleading for another little brother or sister, Madge is not sure she's quite ready but she's kept the door open and been in touch with the orphanage.
"She has big plans to raise money, including a possible charity concert next year."
Her African adventure is one of the reasons she split with Jesus Luz, 24.
The Brazilian child model was unwilling, apparently, to inspect a raft of wells/farms/ children with her. And Madge's new young lover, French dancer Brahim Zaibat, also 24, is unlikely to be holding her hand mid-inspection.
My source reveals: "Madonna and Brahim is not serious - they are having a no-strings fling. He certainly won't be making the trip."
