While outwardly Madonna seems to be coping with the apparent failure of her bid to adopt three-year-old Malawi orphan Mercy James, pals of the singer say she is so upset she's finding it hard to eat and keep up her exercise regime.
"She has abandoned her strict macrobiotic diet and is eating virtually nothing," a friend of the Material Girl tells the Daily Express. "Since her adoption was rejected she has dropped five pounds."
The same pal reports that 50-year-old Madonna burst into tears at a Passover dinner held by fellow Kabbalah devotees, and told diners "she felt too low to train".
