Madonna SUED After Malawi School Plans Fall Apart!

Oh no! This is a terrible development in an already unfortunate situation!

Madonna is currently being slapped with an unfair dismissal lawsuit from former employees of her Raising Malawi charity, now that plans for a new girls school in the country fell apart!

As we reported, the singer was hoping to build a $15 million development near the capital of Lilongwe, but was abandoned once reports surfaced that suggested that there was some financial mismanagement. Executive Director of Raising Malawi, Philippe van den Bossche, quit back in October, and now, the board of directors has been completely dismissed.

Now, however, eight pissed off employees have pressed charges, according to their lawyer, Mzondi Chirambo, who explains:

“Their employment was terminated by the trustees of Raising Malawi Academy for Girls ostensibly following the change of plan not to build the school as planned. My clients are also being forced to sign a discriminatory termination agreement before they are paid their benefits.”

Yuck! What a mess!

In return, Madonna has 14 days to respond to the allegations, but has also reportedly looked into filing a suit against those who caused the plans to collapse.

Such a shame that so much ill-will has come from something that was supposed to better so many young people's lives.

Here's hoping that they don't lose sight of that, and can reach some sort of amicable agreement.

    Stupid old dried up kunt should have payed her employees. What a fucking fraud. Ugly bitch.

    If she was really interested in all these, she would have fixed it long ago when the problem started.

    Payed? Paid dumb ass. And what are you doing for humanity?

    Typical… she milks the publicity for this school for all it's worth…then when it's time to actually build the damn thing something 'comes up' and the project quietly dies. I'll bet 20 bucks on the table that she was never actually planning on building it in the first place.

    No good deed goes unpunished. It's the price of doing business, only it's supposed to be charity, but things unfold the same way. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. Those sincere about charity forge through it so those in need can benefit. Madonna is a forger, I'll bet.

    Very dark brand.

    Re: BAEEAB – I'm doing about as much as she is. Your the fucking idiot for buying all this bullshit. Hey, but at least your a proper speller, that is one grand accomplishment. IDIOT!

    Re: BAEEAB – The point is, quit having so many fucking kids and you won't be so poor. Very simple folks.

    Re: @v@ – It would appear that the employess are worried that Mad Donna will pay them with forged cheques.

    Wow you have to be one of the most (if not the) most ignorant person I've ever come across. Good luck with having your head stuck in that tight assh!le

    Re: @v@ – I think Manly Donna is more of a forager than a forger. She visits Malawi and forages for small children.

    Half assed, shitty reporting. Perez posted half the strory to make Madonna look bad. Read the NY times piece published early last week.

    Madonna didnt "fire" anyone. These so called employees MIS-MANAGED MILLIONS OF DOLLARS THAT ARE UNACCOUNTED FOR. Of course they were removed, as they should have been!! They bankrupted the foundation and there is NO money left!! They are frauds and are now trying to sue for unfair dismissal. Someone should have been paying attention to how this was being managed, but that doesnt make her a dried up kunt who does things for publicity. I didnt even read such nasty comments about Enron or Madoff, for god sakes!!

    She bought her little niglets with the promise of it so do you think she cares now?



  15. 15

    Love hurts…the children are so loved that they must be abandoned.



  16. 16

    When is her next visit to Malawi? She promised to bring the child back so he could keep in touch with his roots. Bit more difficult now, I suspect.

    This so called story is nothing but a half-truth. There is a new board of directors taking over this project and it is still providing meals, clean water, & medical needs to the children in Malawi. These types of things happen ALL the time with charity programs. Instead of focusing on the dark, negative things we should focus on the positive which is that these children are STILL receiving the care they deserve & need.

    Hey, this is what she gets for trying to act like Brangelina. You let celebrities adopt children like puppies and when they see the strings that go along with it, they lose interest. I hope others learn from this. Seeking attention thru adoption and charity isn't a game.

    What's really sad is the amount of legal fees that will be spent on this matter. All that money could go to the Malawi girls. I'm sure it will get worked out though. Hopefully quickly.
