"He could put on any outfit and look swag as you-know-what. He wears my clothes and looks better in them," she told Jimmy Fallon, adding that David looks great in a dress.

David went viral on May 28, when he rocked a red Adidas x Gucci dress to the WBA World Lightweight Championship. His mother wore a similar Laura Whitcomb-designed dress to the 1993 premiere of "Sleepless In Seattle."

In 2006 she founded a charity non-profit organization called Raising Malawi. While there she adopted David in October of that year.

Madonna told Oprah Winfrey the baby had been suffering from pneumonia after surviving malaria and tuberculosis in Malawi. She took him to the US and nursed him back to health.

In May 2009 Madonna adopted daughter Chifundo "Mercy" James from Malawi. The 63-year-old pop icon returned to Malawi in February 2017 and adopted four-year-old twin sisters named Estere and Stella.

She also shares biological son Rocco Ritchie, 22, with ex-husband Guy Ritchie, and daughter Lourdes Leon, 25, with fitness trainer Carlos Leon.

Madonna and rapper Tory Lanez sparked dating rumors after they were spotted attending a boxing match together in Brooklyn, NY on Saturday.

In one photo, Madonna and Tory hid behind a church fan at the WBA World Lightweight Championship title match between Gervonta Davis and Rolando Romero at the Barclays Center.

Madonna, 63, and Tory, 29, predicted Davis would win the fight.

Davis knocked out Romero in the sixth round of a match that boxing analysts say Davis was behind on every card.

Madonna also attended the fight with her adopted son David Banda. The teenager wore a red Adidas dress over a pair of shorts.

The Madonna-Tory dating rumors seem odd considering that Tory still owes Madonna royalties for a song he sampled without permission.

The Toronto native sampled Madonna's "Into the Groove" on the track "Pluto's Last Comet." Madonna slid into the comments of one of Tory Lanez's Instagram posts and accused him of using the sample without permission.

"Read your messages [for] illegal usage of my song get into the groove!" she wrote.

According to Spotify, Tory Lanez credited himself as the only songwriter on "Pluto's Last Comet."

"Into the Groove" was written by Madonna and Stephen Bray, and appeared on the soundtrack of her 1985 film Desperately Seeking Susan. The single also appeared on the reissue of her 1984 album Like a Virgin.

Madonna nearly broke the Internet when she shared an Instagram video of her son David Banda wearing a dress around their sprawling mansion on Sunday.

Madonna, 62, captioned the video, "Confidence is everything."

The 15-year-old modeled the ankle-length white designer dress, which featured black hand-painted letters by @mae_couture, as he sashayed from room-to-room.

The teenager said, "I low-key like wearing... like, it's so freeing, you know what I mean?"

Madonna's celebrity friends praised David enthusiastically in the comments section.

"Omg I Love him. Look out @naomi," wrote Debi Mazur, comparing the teen to the middle-aged supermodel.

Madonna is also mom to daughter Lourdes Leon, 24, son Rocco Ritchie, 20, daughter Mercy James, 15, and 8-year-old twins Stella and Estere whom she adopted from Malawi. Madonna adopted David from Malawi in 2006.

In a previous interview, Madonna named David as her favorite child. She seemed to suggest that David loved playing in her closet and trying on his mom's feminine things.

"What he has more than anything is focus and determination," she told British Vogue in 2019.

"I'm pretty sure he got it from me. He's the one I have the most in common with. I feel like he gets me; he has more of my DNA than any of my children so far. Let's see what happens – it's still early days for everyone."

Rumor has it that David's brother, Rocco, moved to London to live with his father to get away from his mother's influence.

When Rocco (pictured left) was 16, he took to Instagram to say that he is "so glad" he doesn't live with his mother anymore.

He made the comment after Madonna posted a video of herself, David, then-11, and Mercy, then-10, participating in a viral mannequin challenge.

"So glad I don't live there anymore," Rocco wrote.

Pop Icon Madonna is on the hot seat for dropping the dreaded N-word on a social media image of her pugilist son, Rocco Ritchie. Madonna, 55, referred to her 13-year-old white son as a "nigga" on Instagram.com. Madonna's followers immediately slammed her for using a word that is considered derisive to black people.

Superstar Madonna was spotted out & about over the weekend with her newly adopted daughter Mercy and her adopted son David Banda. The trio were on their way to services at a Kabbalah center in London.

Isn't Mercy adorable? It's great that Madonna understands the importance of David having a sibling he can identify with.

Man, that Kabbalah Center must be some cool place for kids. I've never seen children so happy to be attending a meeting at a radical religious organization. When I was a kid my mom took my brothers and I to a church ran by the Salvation Army in the Bronx, NY.

Talk about oppression.

The rigid nuns who ran the church considered logical reasoning and free thinking to be tools of the devil. Within no time I was booted out of Sunday school and asked never to return. My mom eventually found a new church home for us where questions were encouraged in Sunday school.

Maybe Kabbalah is the same way. They're doing something right in there 'cause Madonna's kids look downright giddy - like they're going to Disney World. I wonder how much of Madonna's finances is tied up in the Kabbalah. Can anyone just walk in off the street and attend whether they have money or not?
