Madonna to Meredith Vieria: I Tried to Pay Baby's Daddy

by at . Comments

Madonna is opening up about the problems she had in her recent adoption case.

She talked on the Today show with Meredith Vieria this morning about initially trying to give her recently -adopted baby's father money, so he could raise the boy himself. But when he turned her down. Madge said she took as a sign that she should adopt him herself.

The Material Girl told the host she "couldn't really understand" Yohane Banda's decision not to take her money, especially because he had "moved to another village and was kind of getting on with his life."

When he declined the money, Madonna said she regarded it as "my sign that ... it was my responsibility to look after [David Bana]."

Madonna also defended her decision to introduce David to Kabbalah nice and early.

"I believe in Jesus and I study kabbalah," she said. "So, I don't see why he can't, too."

A fair point. And it could be worse. The kid could look just like Bjork.

My husband and I are not planning on getting a divorce. I know Alex Rodriguez through Guy Oseary, who manages both of us. I brought my kids to a Yankee game. I am not romantically involved in any way with Alex Rodriguez. I have nothing to do with the state of his marriage or what spiritual path he may choose to study.
