    Reuters reports that Madonna's spokeswoman said that neither the singer nor a charity she backs in Malawi is being investigated by the FBI.

    Some recent media reports have suggested that an international education charity the singer backs, Success for Kids, is being investigated by FBI agents in Los Angeles for alleged irregularities and suspicious activity. Madge has been in the news a bit regarding her interests in and support of the country, as last month, another charity backed by Madonna, named Raising Malawi, had scrapped a plan to build a school for impoverished girls in Malawi due to mismanagement.

    "In recent days a number of wild and totally false rumors about Madonna's philanthropy -- spread by bloggers and tabloids -- have begun appearing on the Internet," Madonna's spokeswoman Liz Rosenberg said in a statement. "Neither Madonna nor Raising Malawi is being investigated by the FBI or the IRS (U.S. tax authorities). It is unfortunate that people have chosen to say things about Raising Malawi and Madonna that are not true."

    Rosenberg, who has been working with Madonna since she rocked the rubber bracelets, said Madge remains committed to helping Malawi's children.
