Kabbalah Centre And Two Of Madonna's Affiliated Charities Issued With Subpoenas

Uh-oh. Shiz is getting real.

A federal grand jury in New York has issued subpoenas for The Kabbalah Centre and two of Madonna's affiliated charities, Spirituality for Kids and Raising Malawi.

The organizations are currently under a government investigation for "tax-related issues." The investigation will look into several court actions involving The Centre's investors.

The Centre says they will cooperate and work closely with the IRS to resolve the matter. Trevor Neilson of Global Philanthropy Group says:

"We have tried to provide as much information as we can as quickly as possible to the people who are investigating and are very actively cooperating in every way we can."

Meanwhile, Madonna has been distancing herself from the Centre, which is a SMART move. Seems there's a lot of dramz going on, which takes the focus off of helping people.

Madge is a smart cookie! She knows when it's time to get out!

    Time to get out, sure, and flee from justice.

    NY is also LOOKING INTO HER CHARITIES TOO MARIO!! I used to do administration work for a not for profit YEARS ago in NYC and the laws are STRICT in NY State for 'charities' or not for profits. THAT is why they are probably being investigated. There is a strict guideline for the amount of money that shoud be used for administration costs, THE REST SHOULD BE GOING TO WHO/WHAT THE CHARITY IS FOR. (PROGRAM) I forgot the %, but, I know it was under 20%. Also, if you, meaning the charity, are not filling out the paperwork for the state right, OR NOT FILLING IT OUT! You will be investigated. The Charity I worked for, it took such a long time with the paperwork, such detail, most fraudulent charities, or ones that spend too much on their Heads, will just go to another state that does not have such strict laws. And I bet it will happen here too-NYC-There are how many other states just MILES FROM MANHATTEN? (3, and if you are will to drive or fly an hour -DOUBLE AND TRIPLE THAT!

    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.

    Keep praising your Satanic bitch.

    she looks stunning

    Re: curiousred – Honey, you are a little confused.

    Madonna donated 17 million dollars of her own money to the Kabbalah Center. She co-founded a few of their charity work but was not behind the tables, working as an accountant. The Bergs were. The Bergs in charge of the logistics and administrative issues of the K-Center and all its businesses.

    That's why the Bergs' personal accounts and businesses (including the ones Madonna was involved as co-founder or money source) are being investigated, not Madonna.

    Re: TORTEZ – I hope you are not Christian… Christianity and every Christian-based religion on Earth are the ones who have stolen more money than any other. Take a look at the Catholic Church for instance. All the money they keep in the Vatican… that money didn't come from priests working hard and getting their paychecks at the end of the month, hon.



  8. 8

    OK, who DIDN'T see this coming?



  9. 9

    seems like she fixed those veiny disgusting arms. good for her



  10. 10

    Luciferian bitch. And Mario, what IF it is SHE who is evading taxes? Ohh god we couldn't have THAT now could we? Maybe hide her in Pakistan?

    Re: Chloe Canacalon – The Vatican is much OLDER than Christ or the Catholics. The Vatican was once a war machine for Rome, but more than anything it was and still is a BANK.



  12. 12

    Flawless.



  13. 13

    Whatevs Madonna still looks hot!



  14. 14

    They will give her an AFI award to make all of this go away.

    BREAKING NEWS: Lady Gaga is now insisting that her charities also be investigated, but that she is distancing herself form them.

    She mentioned that at a press conference, featuring golden flowing locks, red lipstick, a sliver blue dress with silver star designs and an elaborate diamond neckless.

    A Mr. Perez Hilton insisted that any similarities with the Madonna case were purely coincidental.

    Re: caravaggio the terrible – "more than anything it [the vatican] was and still is a BANK." LOL - I don't know what you've been drinking, but THAT's exactly what I was saying hon.

    Re: Chloe Canacalon – OK, right but why drag christians into it? They can't stop the Vatican or get rid of it. The JESUIT ORDER is the entity within the Vatican backed by the Templars, Knights of Malta, Masons, Rosecrucians, Black Pope, White Pope, Black Nobility especially. What they did is try and steal Christianity and make it their own as to define it and use it as their weapon. You should at LEAST acknowledge THAT and not offend those who are innocent? Wanna talk about the Jews next? (The Rothschilds do the banking for the Vatican if you didn't know)

    Re: Chloe Canacalon – This is not to attack you, you are right but you don't have all of it correct. The Vatican is really ruled by the Papal Nobility (live in the middle east) and the Black Nobility (13 ruling Roman bloodline families heir to the Ptlomeic Dynasty of Egypt). Catholicism is a 'cover' for what these people are actually into. Its all bullshit. The Vatican is a 'bank' first and foremost. It is a global info system network, and has great knowledge in ancient text that the world has never seen, which all mostly predates Christ. Look up the 'First Council of Nicaea', that should give a better understanding of what we are dealing with. All of these religions, have their aspects of corruption, but what is important to note is that the regular citizen, or people outside of the tiny establishment that rules all, have no idea what is really going on. There is an 'order' in the religious structure and this 'order' predates even Rome! Food for thought, and I impress upon you to do your own research. There is more Akenaton and King Solomon attributed to the Vatican than Jesus Christ and you can quote me on that.



  19. 19

    ALL RELIGIONS ARE SCAMS!



  20. 20

    No matter how much money Madonna donates…SHE AIN'T GETTING INTO HEAVEN!



  21. 21

    The Bergs DO NOT live in mansions. They live in nice homes near the Centre on Robertson in LA, any one familiar with the area knows there are no mansions in the area. And Madonna is not distancing herself from the Centre.

    Re: Chloe Canacalon – I am SOOOO sick of people putting down the catholic religion!!! As if it is the most evil one in this world… ALL religions have flaws and personally I think they have done a lot of harm in this world… just open the news channel. Plus Madonna is just a lost cause … how can you promise a school for girls to a poor African country and than just abandon the project ?

    So over MADONNA

  24. 24

    Maybe Madonna will become Catholic again…Gaga can baptize her!

    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.



  26. 26

    She was dancing with wolves and just thought they were sheep?

    Re: Chloe Canacalon
    i think your racist and have to deal with your own issues about why you're so horrid.



  28. 28

    That's what happens when you join one of those trendy flavor-of-the-month pseudo-religions in Hollywood. (I'm not saying Kabbalah isn't a real and valid religious study, I'm saying the bullshit version they have in Hollywood with all their starlets running around with red string bracelets and "Kabbalah Water" isn't. It's an insult to the real study of Kabbalah.)

    They need to go after those responsible for the crash of Oct. 2008 before making a big deal out of these penny ante cases. Go after it all.

    Madonna is distancing herself? Wonder why she's still attending connections and classes then? She is there I can assure you! Also her decision to abandon the 'one elite girls' school project' is based on a realisation that there was a better way to reach more children and improve the education of 1000's rather than 500. That's sensible rather than sinister. Believe me Madonna will deliver. As fir the 'Gagalover Madonnahaters' on here…… as Madonna sang 'You only see what your
    eyes want to see' . I for one am perplexed at why Gaga always has to promote
    herself by talking about her charity work. Millions (true approximation) of
    celebrities do Charity work but do not go singing from the roof-tops about it. In tge early years Madonna was one such celeb. When she first set up Raising
    Malawi and SFK they were very much within the knowledge of those who study
    Kabbalah. They became more public kniwledge because of Madonna's decision to
    adopt a child from that country.

    Re: Gaganheim Artists – That would be more of a "cultural baptism" would it not?



  32. 32

    I hope ManDonald does not flee the country for England and take up hiding in Guy Ritchie's basement…

    I kind of wish she would distance herself from that stuff,Kabbalah is seriously creepy.I don't think she plans to,tho.And although I'm a fan,I don't think she's that smart,she wouldn't get involved with Kabbalah in the first place if she was smart.She was just desperate for "spiritual enlightenment" I guess,how Hollywood of her…You don't need to convert to another religion,just try to be a better person.THAT'S enlightenment.
