Pop queen Madonna looked woozy after a night out with her filmmaker husband Guy Ritchie at Claridge's restaurant in London recently.
The 48-year-old singer was so unsteady that she required Ritchie's support to get to their vehicle. Her eyes appeared bleary as she sat in the passenger's seat before being driven away.
"She didn't seem totally with it. I don't know if she'd been drinking or if she was just tired, but she wasn't all there," British newspaper Daily Mail quoted an onlooker as saying.
It is believed that Madonna's unusual appearance may either be the result of her rigorous fitness programme, which includes pilates, yoga and up to 400 sit-ups a day, or of her own strategy to get respite from the fear of a possible visit from African welfare inspectors next month who have will take the final call whether the singer can formally adopt 22-month-old child, David Banda.
In October last year, Madonna was granted an interim adoption order on David, whom she handpicked from an orphanage and flew to England, where the child joined her husband Ritchie, their son Rocco and her daughter Lourdes by her former personal trainer.
The newspaper's report also mentions speculations that Madonna is to collaborate with pop star Justin Timberlake on her new album.
