Jolie-pitt Baby's Birth Mother Denies Wanting Child Back

The birth mother of ANGELINA JOLIE's adopted Ethiopian daughter has dismissed reports she wants her child back, insisting she is happy for the Hollywood actress and her boyfriend BRAD PITT to raise her baby. Little Zahara Jolie-Pitt was adopted by the couple in 2005, but reports surfaced last week (ends16Nov07) alleging the paperwork accompanying the adoption was wrong in stating the girl was an orphan - because her mother, Mentewab Dawit Lebiso, is still alive. Lebiso is alleged to have told U.S. magazine In Touch, "I want my daughter to come home to see where she is from. "Her grandmother and I both tried very hard to raise her, and I want her to come home to regain her identity." But Lebiso has denied making such comments, and says her words were misinterpreted by "so-called journalists" who claimed to be working for Jolie. She added, "I have never disputed the adoption. It was something I never said. "I have no ill feelings towards her (Jolie). "I think my daughter is a very fortunate human being to be adopted by a world-famous lady. I wish them all the success they both deserve." The adoption of two-year-old Zahara was ruled legal on Friday (16Nov07) by the agency that first approved it in 2005. Dr Tsegaye Berthe, head of the Wide Horizons for Children Agency slammed the rumours Lebiso wanted the girl back as "media hype by unethical journalists".
