Malawi’s High Court agreed to delay an adoption hearing after Madonna asked for a postponement. The pop star asked the hearing to finalize the adoption be delayed because she would be in the US promoting her latest album, Hard Candy.

The hearing has been moved to May 15 from its original date of April 22. Earlier this month the Malawi government recommended that the court approve the adoption of the two-year-old boy, David Banda.

Madonna, along with her husband filmmaker Guy Ritchie, met David Banda in 2006 at a Malawi orphanage and quickly began proceedings to adopt him. He’s been living with the couple, as well as their two children Lola and Rocco, in London.
