In the preview clip of her emotional interview with TODAY, Madonna recounts the horror from the devastating Christmas Day fire — “I was yelling ‘Where are my babies?’”
Madonna, who has battled depression and attempted suicide, sobbed as she recalled running for her children, nine-year-old Lily and seven-year-old twins Sarah and Grace, and her parents 71-year-old Lomer Johnson and 69-year-old Pauline Johnson.
“[Firefighters] said I had to go right away and I begged them and begged them,” she told the TODAY show. “I’m yelling at them, “Where are my kids? Where are my babies?’”
Madonna went on: ‘Then somebody said, “Turn off the radios! Turn off the radios!” and then I knew that they must have – I don’t know what happened. Something really bad.’
Only she and her boyfriend, Michael Borcina, escaped the fire that ravaged her Stamford, Connecticut home.
Madonna is currently intending to sue the City of Stamford, claiming that they had demolished the home the day after the fire without her permission and destroying crucial evidence.
This is the first time the former Calvin Klein art director has spoken out since the tragedy. Her full interview with the Today show will air on the morning of June 21.
