Madonna And BF Split…Over Religion

Filed under: MadonnaLove LineSad Sad

madonna splits from bf

Such a shame!

Last we heard from Madonna's BF Brahim Zaibat, the two were hitting up the clubs together in London, and we were happy to see things going so well between them.

Unfortunately, the honeymoon period ended, and shiz got TOO real between these two when the subject of religion came up.

Here's what a source close to Zaibat had to say about the split:

"Who’s Madonna? Brahim has been home and he’s a single guy."

"He’s no longer an item with Madonna. He’s very happy. There’s nothing more to say."

"Brahim’s family had told him they did not want him going to Kabbalah meetings and wanted him to stick to his Muslim beliefs, which caused some rows. Things started to turn sour and they were hardly seeing each other."

Obvi we don't know all the details, but that would be such a shame if religion is the main reason that these two aren't together anymore.

Tough times for Madonna and Kabbalah these days…

Why do U think Madonna and her BF broke up? Was Kabbalah a major influence, or was there a lot more to it than that?

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

Filed under: MadonnaLegal Matters

kabbalah-centre-gets-subpoenas.jpg

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!

More Madonna Kabbalah Drama

Filed under: Icky Icky PooMadonnaSad Sad

more madonna kabbalah drama

Last week, we were sad to report that Madonna had been slapped with an unfair dismissal lawsuit from former employees of her Raising Malawi charity, due to the fact that plans for her new girls school in the country fell apart.

Then, we heard that Kabbalah leaders were blaming former disgruntled members for Madonna's current troubles.

Now, one year after Madonna's former personal manager Caresse Henry committed suicide, new questions are being raised by Henry's sister Yvette Dobbie, who believes that Madonna and her connection to Kabbalah played a part in her sister's suicide.

Here's what Dobbie had to say about it:

“Madonna and Kabbalah have blood on their hands. They killed my sister as surely as if they would have pulled the trigger themselves. They don’t want to hear this, but I don’t care — I’m not in the entertainment business and I’m not intimidated by Madonna.”

“The cult aspect, the all-encompassing intrusion into her life, how you think, what you eat, how you meditate … that really didn’t sit well with my sister. She was Catholic and didn’t think this was a good thing.”

“Madonna was done with her, it was over, and it would be handled by lawyers. When Madonna is done with you, she’s done.”

More from Dobbie:

“She was just crestfallen, devastated, heartbroken and felt very betrayed. She couldn’t believe that Madonna let the Kabbalah people have such a heavy hand in it through all of these years that she was loyal to her. Everyone was telling my sister, ‘It was Kabbalah. [Madonna] is doing what she has to do.’”

“When she started out working with Madonna, Caresse was this vivacious, happy girl, and the longer she was with Madonna, her life changed dramatically. Being with Madonna was very toxic to her.”

Such a sad, complicated, tragic situation.

What do U think about Dobbie's comments?

Madonna Kabbalah Drama!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooMadonnaLegal Matters

madonna kabbalah drama

Earlier this week, we were sad to report that Madonna is currently being slapped with an unfair dismissal lawsuit from former employees of her Raising Malawi charity, now that plans for her new girls school in the country fell apart.

Now, Kabbalah leaders are claiming that former disgruntled members "have now turned against us," and they believe these people are involved in Madonna's current troubles.

Here's what Karen Berg, wife of Kabbalah center founder Philip Berg, wrote about it in an email to members:

"It is especially painful and disappointing that there appears to be a small group of individuals who are trying to discredit The Kabbalah Centre. We consider all our students to be part of our family — including those who have now turned against us.

"In sharing Kabbalah with the world for the last 40 years, we learned the many ways chaos and darkness can manifest themselves…we understand that the darkest part of the night is just before the dawn."

More from Karen Berg on Madonna's Raising Malawi charity, which Madge formed with Berg's son Michael:

"An Internet blogger, who regularly trafficks in rumors about the entertainment industry, has written that there is a federal inquiry underway . . . We have received no formal or official notification from the government . . . but we fully intend to work cooperatively to support an examination of our activities."

Dark stuff! We just hope everything gets worked out for Madonna, whether or not former Kabbalah followers have in fact contributed to her current woes.

Do U think disgruntled former Kabbalah members have it out for Madonna?

Gwyneth Discovers Her Ancestor Was A "Master Of Kabbalah!"

gwyneth-paltrow-grandfather-was-a-master-of-kabbalah

Holy shiz! This is pretty crazy!

On the series, Who Do You Think You Are?, celebrities have the opportunity to look into their family's history and learn about their previously unknown ancestors, which is exactly what Gwyneth Paltrow was doing when she uncovered that her great-great-great-grandfather was a "master of Kabbalah!"

During the program, which airs April 1st, the actress, who already studies the ancient Jewish mysticism, learned from documents that the man was "a miracle worker" who apparently saved his community from being destroyed by a fire!

And, as to be expected, Gwyneth reponded to the revelation by claiming:

"This is all kinda blowing my mind."

We don't blame her! To grow up and not only discover a faith, but then practice it - only to uncover that an old relative of yours was a master of it?

Insane! Make you kind of wonder if there's a reason things happen, you know?

PS - We bet her ex bestie Madonna will be VERY innerested to learn about this!

Is LiLo Dabbling In Kabbalah?

Filed under: Lindsay LohanLegal Matters

lindsay-lohan-interested-in-kabbalah

A little late to board this wagon, don't you think?

Now that Lindsay Lohan is attempting to reform her former hard-pAArtying behavior, she's reportedly trading in her cocaine and sticky fingers for a red string bracelet and the mystical Jewish discipline Kabbalah!

A source close to the actress reveals:"

"She's been reciting an ancient Kabbalah saying - 'Na Nach Nachma Nachman Meuman' - and spreading the message to friends."

We're actually pleased to see that she's exploring herself and her spirituality!

She may have a lot of time soon to reflect upon her life, and a sense of faith may be very helpful to her right now!

New Hidden Messages Found In Da Vinci's Mona Lisa!

Filed under: Media MinuteNicolas Cage

symbols found in mona lisas eyes

Last month, we reported that Nicolas Cage Members of Italy's National Committee for Cultural Heritage had found letters and numbers in the Mona Lisa's eyes, which could only be seen by magnifying high resolution images of the painting.

Now, Italian researcher Silvan Vinceti says he's found a letter "S" in Mona Lisa's left eye, and an "L" in her right eye. He also says he's found a number "72" under the "arched bridge in the backdrop" of the painting.

According to Vinceti, the symbols he found are "very small, painted with a tiny brush and subjected to the wear and tear of time."

So what do these symbols mean?

Vinceti believes the "S" could refer to the woman who ruled Milan during the Sforza dynasty, where Leonardo da Vinci spent time between 1482-1499 and 1506-1507.

As far as the "L" is concerned, Vinceti says it stands for "Leonardo."

With regards to "72," Vinceti claims it's a pertinent symbol from Kabbalah and Christianity. He says the "7" has lots of symbolic associations such as creation of the world, and he says the "2" could refer to the duality of male and female.

Are U aware of this, Dan Brown? You've totally got the beginnings of another Da Vinci Code book here, bb!

What do U think these symbols mean?
