New York, Aug 14 : Madonna's representative has dismissed reports that she is 'on the very cusp' of adopting a second child from Malawi.
A British newspaper reported that the singer is renewing her bid to adopt three-year-old girl Mercy James from Malawi.
According to the newspaper, Malawian adoption minister Penstone Kilembe said: "Madonna's representatives have been visiting the girl. The adoption is now advanced. Then Mercy will be able to leave the country for a new life."
But now Madonna's rep Liz Rosenberg has shot down the reports, insisting that the pop star has made no such attempt.
"I don't know how official the Malawian offical can be because there are no plans for Madonna to adopt another child from Malawi," the New York Daily News quoted Rosenberg, as saying.
"She is getting ready to start her tour in l0 days," Rosenberg added.
Madonna is kicking off a world tour the following week.
