The real father of Madonna's adopted son David feels bitterly disappointed that she is getting a divorce - and yesterday he declared: 'I am still a poor farmer with nothing to offer, but maybe he would be better off back with us.'
Yohane Banda has remarried and now has a happy new family living in his thatched hut in Malawi.
His new wife Flora, her daughter Tiyamike, three, and their seven-month-old baby son Dingiswayo - David's half-brother - live a simple life but it is filled with love.
Yet Yohane was filled with regret and sadness as he looked at a photograph of David.
The little boy was walking the streets of Athens, one of his hands held by Madonna, the other by Guy Oseary who jointly manages the singer and basketball player Alex Rodriguez - the man to whom she has been romantically linked.
Guy Ritchie, David's adoptive father, was nowhere in sight.
Yohane, 34, said: 'He doesn't look happy in this picture. He looks bewildered. If there is no love in the family, is there any love for him?
'This is a new and terrible thing to happen to him. I am too upset to think clearly. He is only three years old and he has been through so much.
'I have the joy of a new family and I even have a new son. But now when I think of David in danger of living outside a family life I find it unbearable, I find it hard to believe God intended this.
