X Factor judge says African adoption is like getting a Louis Vuitton handbag

Sharon Osbourne has slammed Madonna’s adoption of baby David Banda from Malawi.

The 53-year-old X Factor judge says: ‘It’s no better than getting a Louis Vuitton handbag.

‘It’s a crock of s***. If she wants to help the kid she should have got the father a little trade going. A fruit stand or something.’

In a candid interview with US DJ Howard Stern, Sharon adds: ‘She bought a baby for God’s sake.’

Meanwhile, 13-month-old David’s father has told Malawian TV that he gave his blessing to the adoption, despite reports that he misunderstood what the agreement meant.

He said: ‘I’d like to tell Madonna not to worry about what people are saying. I wish her all the best raising my son.’
