Pop star Madonna is reportedly close to dumping Kabbalah, a mystical form of Judaism that she has rather publicly embraced recently.
Friends say the singer has talked of loosening her red Kabbalah wristband as she wearies of the religion, the Independent reported Sunday.
She also is tired of the financial burdens associated with being a devotee and mindful, too, of the stress her interest in the Kabbalah has put on her marriage to Guy Ritchie.
"The singer's links to the version of Kabbalah that she follows are so intimate now personally and financially that withdrawal would be difficult, complicated and initially kept very private," the newspaper stated. "The departure of Esther, the adopted Hebrew name by which she is known to fellow believers, would almost certainly provoke lengthy and expensive legal wrangling."
Madonna's kind of a Kabbalah is a new presentation of the tradition overseen by Rabbi Philip Berg, who founded the first branch of the Kabbalah Centre in Jerusalem in 1969. His group now has nearly 60 facilities around the world, which offer ways devotees ways to become rich, find true love and cure illnesses.
madonna goes thru fads like bill clinton goes thru girlfriends..NEXT!!!!!!!!!!!
Must be a newer, cooler, Religion-of-the-week has caught her attention.
It ould be fitting if the moderators refused to allow additional posts on this topic.!
Material Girl should just go ahead and do what she really wants, found her own religion with herself as Goddess.
Perhaps Kabballah left her after her on stage "crucifixion".
She needs to leave this cult to gain back her eternal friend Brittney Spears no doubt.
Brit left a couple of weeks ago telling the press that her child is now her religion.
And Madonna looks to be following her.
She must certainly have something new to crow about. Stay tuned.
She does have a bad new video for drug users on video music channels.
It's in all psychedelic with trails of light.
Must be in sync with the VH1 "Drug Years" series. And the new film that will bio Timothy Leary. Believe DiCaprio will play Leary. Are we re-entering the LSD years?
"Wait just a damn minute! Why wasn't I told about this"
I hear Scientology has a better dental plan. ;o)
When did Hollywood leave those years?
Wow. She looks better at 47 than Britney ever has.
Huzzah! She'll stop butchering this aspect of Judaism and move on to misunderstand some other religion.
Madonna religious = oxymoron.
Has she tried Buddhism or Hinduism yet? I think Islam is beyond the pale for Madonna (except for Sufism, maybe). I'm sure she doesn't want to invite any close encounters of the Wahabi kind.
Maybe Madonna will finally come home.
