Madonna has defended Tom Cruise‘s Scientology beliefs.She says she can empathise with the 45-year-old actor as she is a devout follower of the Kabbalah faith.
‘I don’t care if people worship turtles or frogs – if they’re good people, that’s all I care about, and Tom is a good person,’ she says.
‘I think he gets a raw deal, just as I think the orphans in Malawi get a raw deal, just as I think a lot of marginalised people get a raw deal.
‘People are just strangely suspicious of people who want to do something good. Yes, there are children that need to be adopted in the US and in the UK, but no one’s going to die in an orphanage in America,’ she tells the Daily Express.
Meanwhile, Madonna, 49, has requested that her adoption hearing in Malawi for David Banda be postponed – despite having tried to formalise it for over a year.
Madge had been expected at a Malawian court later this month. But now the country’s High Court has accepted her appeal to put the hearing back so that she can travel to the US to promote her new album Hard Candy.
The court date will take place on 15 May.
She has had custody of David, 2, for 18 months.
