Peter Baneti was upset with court ruling
Madonna has received a boost in her bid to adopt Mercy James from Malawi her family have pledged their support.
The singer was denied custody of the four-year-old at a hearing on Friday because she is not a resident of the African country.
Now Mercys uncle Peter Baneti, 41, says hell back Madonna, 50, in her appeal against the ruling.
We don’t understand the judge’s reasoning, he tells The Sunday Telegraph.
We as a family discussed this and agreed that it is in the best interests of Mercy to have her adopted, so why should the judge stop this if the family is okay with it?
We are very disappointed. We hope that the Supreme Court will overturn her ruling.
Madonna has now returned to London, so her sons Rocco, 8, and David Banda, 3, can see their dad Guy Ritchie, 40.
Meanwhile, a man has come forward claiming he is Mercys dad – James Kambewa says he thought she died at birth.
