Guy Ritchie's country house was broken into Monday morning and his household staff foiled a potential raid, PEOPLE has confirmed.

Father of Madonna Orphan Surfaces, Wants to Support Child

Madonna has now left Malawi but the controversy she stirred up there with her ongoing attempt to adopt a child hasn't simmered down.

First, the long-missing father of 3-year-old Mercy James, the child Madonna would like to make her own, has surfaced – and he claims he wants to be a part of his daughter's life.

The young man, James Kambewa, tells PEOPLE he didn't even know his daughter was alive until her name surfaced in the Madonna adoption case. Now a security guard, Kambewa says he learned the girl's mother, 15-year-old Mwandida Maunde, had died – and assumed their child was dead too.

Guy Ritchie Offers Support After Madonna's Failed Adoption Bid

Originally posted 04/04/2009 10:00AM

British director Guy Richie called his ex-wife Madonna “a great mum” following news that the singer's bid to adopt a second child from Malawi was rejected Friday.

Richie, 40, father to the couple's son Rocco, 3, and David Banda, 3 – the Malawian boy he and Madonna officially adopted in 2008 – issued a statement through his rep saying: “I fully supported Madonna in her decision to apply for this adoption, and I am saddened that her application has been rejected. She is motivated only by being a caring parent who seeks to share some of the advantages and opportunities that her life has given her.”

A judge in Malawi blocked Madonna’s attempt to adopt Mercy James, 3, citing a residency rule for prospective parents that requires they spend from 18 to 24 months in the country (that requirement was waived for Madonna’s first adoption).

Madonna, 50, has filed an appeal to the ruling.

Madonna is doing her best to get through her split from husband Guy Ritchie – with a little help from ex-husband Sean Penn, according to a source close to the singer.

"It's a sad situation, but she's not heartbroken," says the source, who saw the 50-year-old icon hours before a London court granted the couple a preliminary "quickie divorce" on Friday. "She's handling it well."

Madonna, who rocked Philadelphia as part of her Sticky and Sweet tour on Thursday, is focusing on her work and her children to keep her mind off the end of her nearly eight-year marriage to Ritchie, says the source. "She's got a very busy life."
