Friends of Madonna’s former nanny Angela Jacobsen are speaking out to News of the World about the unbearable experience she had working for the 50-year-old. “She was sick of traipsing around the world looking after other people’s children,” the pal told the British tabloid. “Her plan was to be home and be settled by the time she was 30.”
But another pal says Jacobsen “was incredibly upset and very surprised because she had been told about the second adoption and thought she was badly needed for a few more months.”
Meanwhile, a Facebook page purported to be Angela’s said the decision by Madonna to terminate her “was sudden and unexpected.”
