Madonna's Kabbalah haircut dogma

People News/January 3, 2007

Madonna will not get her adopted Malawian son a haircut until he is three, because of her Kabbalah faith.

The 'Hung Up' singer is determined that her new son, 16-month-old David Banda, is brought up in accordance with the teachings of the mystical offshoot of Judaism, and, as a result, his hair will remain untouched until a special ceremony on his third birthday.

A source close to the 48-year-old singer told Britain's Daily Express newspaper: "Madonna has made it clear that David's hair is not to be touched at all, even if it grows into an Afro hairstyle.

"When the time comes it will be a big ceremony and lots of men in the Kabbalah community will gather round and each of them will cut a bit off. According to the Kabbalah, young boys can start wearing skull caps after their first haircut."

Madonna's five-year-old biological son Rocco, from her marriage to British film director Guy Ritchie, also followed the same ritual at the insistence of his mother and has been excitedly talking to his new brother about the eventual ceremony.

The source added: "The two boys have formed a real bond and Rocco is always adjusting David's red Kabbalah wristband and telling him all about its rituals and beliefs."
