Madge questions Kabbalah

Madonna has had a barny with the leaders of the faith she follows over her financial donations.

According to The Sun, the Queen Of Pop has demanded to know what the millions she has given are being spent on by the chiefs of the Jewish religion Kabbalah.

A source told the paper: “Madonna wants to know what projects her money is going to and why certain projects are chosen ahead of others.

“She wasn’t entirely satisfied it was going towards the projects she thought deserved the most financial support.

“Now she has asked for a clear, detailed report on where the money is being spent before it gets the go-ahead.

“She’s as keen as ever to help but is treating it like a business plan – just like she does everything else.”

Mother-of-two Maddy is such an avid follower of the faith she likes to be known by her Kabbalah name of Esther. Even her husband, Lock Stock director Guy Richie has joined the mysterious religion.

However it is rumoured he had a fall-out with his wife’s rabbi advisor for interfering too much – grabbing him by the scruff of the neck and threatening to “break his face”.

How very spiritual…
