Despite recent reports that Madonna‘s charity, Raising Malawi, is under investigation by the authorities, her rep. state exclusively that this isn’t the case.
While sources have reported that construction on a school being built by the organization has been halted while Raising Malawi is being investigated for mismanagement of funds, nothing could be further from the truth.
“In recent days a number of wild and totally false rumors about Madonna’s philanthropy — spread by bloggers and tabloids — have begun appearing on the Internet. As we have said previously, Raising Malawi is currently undergoing a series of positive changes in an effort to serve more children,” Madonna’s rep. said.
“Neither Madonna nor Raising Malawi is being investigated by the FBI or the IRS. It is unfortunate that people have chosen to say things about Raising Malawi and Madonna that are not true. Madonna remains committed and focused on what matters: helping the children of Malawi.”
