Britney Spears is NOT considering adopting a daughter from the African country, Malawi, despite a bogus report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this story. We’re told it’s “not true.”

According to Yahoo!, Spears wants to follow in the footsteps of her idol Madonna, who adopted two children from Malawi, by also taking in a child from the impoverished African nation. The outlet quotes a source telling the repeatedly discredited National Enquirer, “She’s considering adopting a little girl from Malawi,” adding that Spears and Madonna have supposedly “discussed the process on several occasions, and she’s always wanted a daughter.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Spears, who assures us the rumor is “not true.” The floundering web giant simply regurgitated a completely false tabloid story without bothering to do any fact checking of its own. In fact, just last week Gossip Cop debunked an equally bogus claim by Life & Style that alleged Spears wanted to adopt a baby girl from China.

Despite what the tabloids would have you believe, Spears isn’t shopping around different countries searching for a daughter. The singer is focused on her music career, as well as raising her two boys, Sean, 10, and Jayden, 9, and has no plans to adopt a new child.
