Madonna is back on her feet after taking a spill on Saturday
Madonna was out and about enjoying a sunny Sunday in the Hamptons yesterday, just 1 day after falling from a horse on Saturday at photographer Steven Klein’s estate. The Material Girl spent the remainder of the weekend resting at pal Gwyneth Paltrow’s Amagansett home. Madonna’s reps have blamed lurking paparazzi for the accident, saying the photographers spooked the horse causing it to throw the pop star. Madonna’s spokeswoman, Liz Rosenberg, claimed her client was thrown from the horse when a photographer jumped out the bushes and startled the horse. The photographer being blamed for the accident denies Madonna’s claim that he played a role in Madge’s fall from horse in Hamptons, a claim being supported by the Southampton Police Department. Thomas Hinton, the photographer who took photos of the accident, said he was on a public road and the only photographer near the Material Girl. Hinton said he shot photos of Madonna riding her horse at 3:50 p.m. on Saturday, but left soon after because he didn’t have a good vantage point. “I arrived more than 10 minutes after she fell, and I was shooting from the street,” Hinton said. “I don’t know what [Rosenberg] is talking about.”
In other Madonna news, her appeal of a Malawian court ruling which denied her request to adopt Chifundo “Mercy” James, 3, from Malawi will be heard next month. The Material Mom is not required to be present for the appeal and the case will be presented to 3 judges from the Supreme Court.
