Is the FBI investigating singer [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Madonna[/lastfm]?
Earlier this week the The Daily reported that the FBI is “scrutinizing” one of Madonna’s nonprofit groups, Success for Kids, for “several irregularities and suspicious activity.”
The news came shortly after allegations that Raising Malawi, another one of Madonna’s charities, had poor accounting practices and misplaced or misused millions of dollars of funds and donations.
In response to the statement that the FBI is watching Madonna, Liz Rosenberg, Madonna’s Press Agent, made the following statement:
“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. 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.”
