Madonna(not pictured) and her children leave the Kabbalah Center on November 2, 2013. Two of the singer’s children, Mercy and David, share their swagger with photographers who readily snap pictures of the youngsters. Mercy smiles wide as David gives an expression that says, “I’m cool” to paparazzi.


Madonna recently told Harper’s Bazaar all about her struggles when adopting Mercy and David. “I was accused of kidnapping, child trafficking, using my celebrity muscle to jump ahead in the line, bribing government officials, witchcraft, you name it,” said the singer of the process of adopting David. “When I adopted Mercy James, I put my armor on. I tried to be more prepared. I braced myself. This time I was accused by a female Malawian judge that because I was divorced, I was an unfit mother. I fought the supreme court and I won. It took almost another year and many lawyers. I still got the shit kicked out of me, but it didn’t hurt as much. And looking back, I do not regret one moment of the fight.”

Madonna has four kids in all.
