Madonna Distances Herself From Kabbalah Centre

| Filed under: MadonnaLegal Matters

Madonna Turns Back On Kabbalah Centre

Which is a good idea, we feel.

It looks like the Kabbalah Centre itself is being targeted for criminal prosecution.

All of this is coming after the issues Madonna has had with her Raising Malawi charity scrapped plans to build a school for girls. There have been all kinds of IRS probes and issues surrounding the board members and misuse of funds. Poor Madge can't catch a break!

Now, the religious center she so loved is getting lots of heat:

The Internal Revenue Service is probing the four-decades-old spiritual center for allegedly using nonprofit funds to enrich its founders, the Berg family, close associates of Madonna.

In subpoenas reviewed by the newspaper that were recently issued as part of a grand jury probe of the Bergs and their organization, the government lists a number of for-profit business run by the family that are being investigated, but makes no mention of Madonna.

Her charities are nonetheless caught up in the probe due to the fact that the singer's Raising Malawi grew out of her association with Spirituality for Kids, an educational nonprofit Madonna championed and founded by Karen Berg, the Kabbalah Centre's head honcho.

Not good! We're sorry all this is happening, Madonna! All you wanted to do was help people!

Distancing yourself is a good plan. We're sure that once everything is said and done, that you'll be clear and able to start up the kind of work you wanna do again, and whoever receives the charity will be incredibly grateful!

Good luck, we'll be following this closely!

    Why doesn't she just bill King Solomon? She could channel one of the 72 demons and be done with it! Now….where is my mystical red string…..

    Kabbalah and Scientology = Satanism.

    Re: TORTEZ – Kabbalah is not satanism, it's just some sort of jewish mystical religion, and scientology, well it's just sci.fi stories

    Re: Electro_storm – Kaballah has aspects that delve into demon and angel spirits under King Solomon. The book is called 'The Goetia', which most jews who are into Kaballah refuse to accept as being even real. It surfaced in the 17th century, I believe in France. The Knights Templars who left France by orders of the King and journeyed to Jerusalem, set up their ’roundtable' in 'King Solomon's Temple'. What they did NOT tell you is that they were not looking for 'the cup of christ', but rather 'King Solomon's secrets' which would have been in ancient text format. The demon spirits have a hierarchical order and at the top is 'Lucifer', which predates Christ or reference to God and Satan. The highest demon in the order of 72 is named 'Jahbulon', and this is the Luciferian secret that the highest order of Freemasonry (in Europe) is involved in becoming enlightened with. The 'Luciferian Light'. 'Enlightment'. 'Illumination'. 'Illuminati'. Get it?

    Leave it to the Bergs and Madoffs and other money hungry jews to steal from people.
    Madonna donated $17 million of her own money, at what point did she realize it was all a scheme????? Dumb bitch.

    'All you wanted to do is help people!' Maybe. She's been pretty good at helping herself for decades. Let the investigators do their work.

    Re: caravaggio the terrible – Certain 'religious' groups can end up being profit motivated when the layers are peeled back, and it's easy to misuse a person's honorable thirst for greater spirituality and connection to relieve people from their cash. Most times these people are victims, and I hope she's not found to be connected in any way for those reasons. Tax free status can also be very tempting to some of these groups.

    You can NEVER trust a jew with money.

    Re: @v@ – Yeah, it can happen anywhere. that's why Karl Malden says, "American Express card: Don't Leave Home Without it". Then he get a punch in the nose that already too large for his face!

    nothing like fueling the flames of antisemitism…

    the jew's just never learn do they?

    Madonna donated A LOT of money from her own pocket - not to mention other smaller celebrities and regular people, all kabbalah followers who have given a little of their hard-earned money to the K-Center.
    It's a shame when it happens. Humans are corrupt. I understand that if one's work is to care for people and take care of business who help people (like the Bergs), you need to get paid for that job. The problem is when those people, dealing with a hell-lot-of money decide they can take parts of it too.
    The Bergs drive nice cars and live in mansions… There's definitely something wrong with that picture. Hopefully, with these investigations, Madonna and other people who donated their money will be able to focus on doing good, with more reliable people around.

    Are you kidding me? Celebs need to be accountable for endorsing this clearly shady kind of group. People like her are what enables cults to recruit. She is in fact responsible for lending credibility to 'Kabbalah' which has always sought power and property at the expense of members' minds and lives. Just wanted to help people? Vomit on self, repeat.

    Re: kittendom – I concur.

    Very Garbo-esque. She looks wonderful for 52; she obviously puts the effort in to take care of herself. Lovely color dress on her, and I like the stars and the extra length along with its drape. Every high status male on earth should be chasing this one around, imo.

    Re: @v@ – High profile lawyers, district attorneys, high-up mucky-mucks from the IRS, and dare I say defrauded contributors are all pursuing her vigorously.

    Re: Phibes – Lol. She'll find a new husband and catch one of them!

    I think it's important here to realize an investigation does not mean the allegations are true. Innocent until proven guilty u know. A great many things have been said against the Kabbalah Centre and Madonna for that matter that haven't had a grain of truth. And Madonna has not "distanced" herself from Kabbalah. What has happened is that there has been a reorganization in the organizational structure for her charity, Raising Malawi.
