The celebrity gossip photographer who claims he was the only member of the paparazzi around when Madonna took a spill Saturday says he isn't to blame - and he claims her camp's story about what went down is ... well, horse $h!t.

The lensman told TMZ that he shot Madonna before and after she fell - but was not there for the actual fall. He says he took pics of her riding and left.

Unfortunately, no photos of her riding Jesus Luz have yet surfaced.

A half hour after he departed the scene, the photographer says he got a tip about an ambulance being sent out for a 50-year-old woman - so he put two and two together and went back to snap some pictures of her being tended to.

He says all photos were taken from a public road and the only other photographer anywhere nearby was Stephen Klein - whose house Madonna was at.

As he put it, "If I had startled the horse, I would have gotten pictures!"

The star's longtime spokesperson, Liz Rosenberg, made the contrary assertion after the fall that "The accident occurred when the horse Madonna was riding was startled by paparazzi who jumped out of the bushes to photograph the singer."

Madonna was treated and released with minor injuries.

Horsing around with young model Jesus Luz is one thing.

Falling off a horse because celebrity gossip photographers won't leave you alone? That's another thing.

Her Madgesty

Madonna spent time in a Long Island hospital this weekend following a fall off a horse that her publicist blames on reporters.

"The accident occurred when the horse Madonna was riding was startled by paparazzi who jumped out of the bushes to photograph the singer," spokeswoman Liz Rosenberg said.

The 50-year-old pop singer, who is still hoping to adopt a girl from Malawi, was released after being treated for "minor injuries and bruises" at a Southampton hospital, said Rosenberg.

In a new interview, Madonna makes a plea to to adopt three-year-old Mercy James from Malawi.

"I want to provide Mercy with a home, a loving family environment and the best education and healthcare possible," the singer e-mailed the country's Nation newspaper in response to its questions. "And it's my hope that she, like David, will one day return to Malawi and help the people of their country."

Madonna Enjoys Local Fare

Do you think Madonna ought to be allowed to adopt again?

She added:

"Though I have been advised that I cannot publicly discuss the pending appeal regarding my desire to adopt Mercy, I do want to say how much I appreciate the level of support that I have received from the people of Malawi and my friends around the world."

A judge turned down the Madonna's adoption application because she didn't meet the country's requirement that a prospective parent resides in Malawi for at least 18 months.

Madonna's application to adopt Chifundo "Mercy" James, 3, was turned down by a Malawi judge Friday morning in court. The judge cited requirements that adoptive parents reside in the African country for 18 to 24 months.

"I must have to decline to grant the application to Madonna," judge Esmie Chondo, who was widely expected to sign off on the adoption, said in a closed-door ruling.

The icon arrived in Malawi last week to visit her orphanage, see Mercy, and take David to see his biological father to keep him in touch with his Malawi roots.

The star's 2006 adoption of Banda was granted despite her not meeting the residency requirements, which caused outrage among some non-governmental groups that believes she was using her celebrity status to bend the law.

In his ruling, the judge expressed concern that by allowing Madonna or others to bypass their requirements, the courts could actually facilitate the trafficking of children by some unscrupulous individuals instead of safeguarding them.

Chombo also argued that Madonna's good works with Malawi's orphanages - she is now supporting more than 25,000 orphans in the country - will still benefit Mercy since she currently resides in a facility sponsored by the singer.

Madonna will be allowed to file an appeal against the order. Fortunately, she still has one adopted child in David Banda, and another in Jesus Luz.

Alex Rodriguez is rolling in his grave.

Okay, so the Yankees slugger isn't dead. But he might wish he were after seeing these photos of his one-time girlfriend parading Jesus Luz all over New York.

Considering he basically divorced Cynthia Rodriguez to be with Madonna, this slap in the face has to hurt as bad as the leaked results of his steroids test.

But back to Madonna.

She and Jesus Luz, the 22-year-old model from Brazil that she met on the set of the racy W photo shoot and allegedly began banging shortly thereafter, went out for a romantic meal on a snowy Sunday night in New York City...

Madonna got out of her car first then waited for Jesus Luz to get out, and they then walked into the restaurant together, in full view of the paparazzi.

While Alex Rodriguez bashes meaningless Spring Training homers, Jesus Luz continues to circle the bases with the lovely object of both their affections.

Worse yet for A-Rod, Luz is making an impression with her kids.

While the nurturing of their romance through Kabbalah (and a steamy W mag photo shoot) is generating plenty of celeb gossip heat, there may be another dynamic worth noticing in the affair of hot Brazilian model Jesus Luz and Madonna.

E! Online reports that the pop queen took her 22-year-old paramour to Los Angeles' Kabbalah Center on trendy Robertson Boulevard last Saturday.

While the former Mrs. Ritchie may be making an impression on Jesus Luz, it was Luz taking the time to get to know Madonna's eight-year-old son, Rocco.

"He was playing with Rocco than paying attention to Madonna," a source says, noting that Luz was also seen with Madonna and adopted David Banda.

Daughter Lourdes would be the last in the trifecta of children to impress as he strives to win family favor. Still, her PR peeps deny any romance with Jesus Luz.

"Clichéd as it sounds, they're really just friends," Madge's rep Liz Rosenberg said.

Of course, Rosenberg also vehemently denied Madonna and Guy Ritchie's marriage was in trouble until they divorced. Madonna and A-Rod were allegedly just pals too, until they were clearly getting it on. So basically she's full of it.

Is Madge just using Jesus Luz to make Alex Rodriguez jealous - after he ran home to ex-wife Cynthia Rodriguez in the wake of his positive steroid test - or did A-Rod blow his shot? Did he snooze and Luz out to a younger, hotter boy toy?

Forget diamonds, dresses, handbags and other celebrity fashion staples.

Madonna will have a different kind of accessory on her person for this year's Academy Awards, according to reports - 22-year old boyfriend Jesus Luz!

“Madonna and Jesus have spent all week planning their outfits for Oscar night,” a pal tells OK! “Madonna is planning on using the Vanity Fair party to introduce him to the world as her new boyfriend, and wants everything to be perfect!"

So why all the fuss if Jesus Luz is just a fling?

It seems as if Madonna - who divorced Guy Ritchie last year amid rumors of an affair with Alex Rodriguez - is getting pretty serious about her latest conquest.

"She’ll put to rest any rumor that Jesus was ‘just a model’ she met during that racy W photo shoot," the source adds. "Madonna and Jesus’ romance is real.”

Your move, Alex Rodriguez.

Reports say Madonna's rumored paramour Jesus Luz has reportedly converted to Kabbalah, the mystical Jewish offshoot embraced by her Madgesty.

The Brazilian model - who is said to be a strict Catholic - joined an online community for Kabbalah believers, and has updated his website, informing "friends" about his switch to the faith, of which the Material Girl is a devout follower.

"Jesus' family are very traditional and quite religious so this news is sure to come as something of a shock," a source tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper.

Hey, 'Sus

"But Jesus is totally taken with Madonna and is slightly in awe of her. Quite simply he can't get enough, and finds her utterly compelling and bewitching."

"The two of them have spent a lot of time together in recent weeks and Madonna's chatted quite freely about her beliefs – especially Kabbalah."

According to the N.Y. Daily News, Alex Rodriguez has slithered back to ex-wife Cynthia Rodriguez in the wake of his steroid scandal - and Madonna is not happy.

"Madge is pissed!" reveals an insider, after A-Rod fled to Coral Gables, Fla., to be with C-Rod. "Alex ran right home to Cynthia. To Madonna, it's the ultimate dis."

According to sources, the Queen of Pop - who has been spotted with model Jesus Luz of late - is livid because A-Rod didn't come to her for solace.

The reason? "Alex's handlers want to make sure he's as far from Madonna as possible," says the insider. "He has enough negative publicity as it is."

Even after their messy divorce scandal last year, Alex Rodriguez is said to be finding comfort in the arms of ex-wife Cynthia amid the fallout from his positive steroid test.

No stranger to the spotlight, the Material Girl has gotten her fair share of attention lately by squiring Jesus Luz, a 22-year-old Brazilian, around New York.

But her camp insists that her dalliances with Luz - who's featured wet and making out with Madonna in W magazine's March issue - are just for publicity.

Sweet Jesus. Especially on the heels of his past positive steroid test results getting leaked to the public, Alex Rodriguez is not going to be happy about this.

Madonna appears in a no-holds-barred W spread in the magazine’s March issue, romping in a hotel with a shirtless Jesus Luz - now her rumored boy toy.

It's not hard to see why Madonna would be tempted to submit to Jesus Luz - and we're not talking about the hot tattoo of his own name on his back ...

Madonna, 50, and Jesus Luz, 22, reportedly met during this steamy magazine shoot (with a Rio theme), as photographed by the legendary Steven Klein.

Earlier this month, the pair was spotted having dinner in NYC. They are said to be dating, but reports vary. Either way, they're spending time together.

A-Rod is said to be extremely jealous of Jesus Luz for moving in on his girl. Just hope he doesn't fly into a fit of steroid-induced rage. Sorry, we had to.
