Here’s something all moms with school-age kids can relate to. Who knew we had something in common with Madonna?
Madonna recently confessed that her kids have been battling one itchy situation — head lice! The singer admitted on The Ellen DeGeneres Show recently that “there’s some head lice going around in my house” and that “it’s a reoccuring occurance.” Now, the Material Mom can’t stop thinking about the tiny bugs invading her $40 million home and her children’s heads! “One of her kids picked up the head lice at school, and Madonna’s been totally panicked ever since,” a friend told the National Enquirer. “Madonna’s turned completely paranoid.”
The mother of Lourdes, 14, Rocco, 10, David, 5, and Mercy, 4, is so freaked out that she’s afraid to lay down in her kids’ beds and put her head on their pillows! Apparently one of her younger children began “scratching their scalps like crazy” and then “she checked their heads and discovered nits,” said the friend. “Madonna just couldn’t believe it.” She tried to follow friends’ advice of using mayonnaise or vinegar to get rid of the bugs, but “her kids balked at the idea, saying they didn’t want to smell like a sandwich!”
Madonna, 52, now has the lice issue under control and has followed her doctor’s order to comb out all the nits and use a special shampoo for 7 to 9 days. She has thoroughly cleaned all of her childrens’ bedding and clothing and has had her maids scrub her entire NYC apartment, not once, not twice, but three times! “She just can’t let go of the idea that the bugs are still on her kids and have spread through her home,” the source adds. We sure hope Madonna gets rid of this buggy problem! It makes us itchy just thinking about it!
