Madonna begs for cash for cake

LONDON, England (Reuters) -- Multi-millionaire pop singer Madonna had to borrow money in a London restaurant after finding herself short of cash to buy a slice of cake for her son, a British newspaper reported on Thursday.

The Sun said Madonna told two sisters, Mimi and Titi Negussie, that she had forgotten her purse when she went into the restaurant with film director husband Guy Ritchie, their son Rocco and her daughter Lourdes.

"A woman came up and said, 'Excuse me, but you look like really nice people. Can I borrow some money? We forgot our wallets'," Mimi Negussie told the Sun.

Titi, who did not recognise the singer, gave the Material Girl a 2 coin to help her cover a 1.25 ($2) shortfall in her 5.25 bill.

A spokesman for Madonna told the Sun the sisters would be sent CDs and a cheque to cover the loan.

Michigan-born Madonna, now a UK resident, was the highest earning musician in Britain in this year's Sunday Times Pay List, with estimated annual earnings of 36 million.

It's nice to see that I'm not the only absent minded mother on earth..

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy.
