The Madonna Nanny Diaries

A woman claiming to be a former nanny for Madonna is currently shopping a tell-all memoir detailing the inner workings of the Madonna-Guy Ritchie household. has seen the 80-page proposal, which is being circulated among major publishing houses. The document proposes a book that will reveal intimate information gleaned from Melissa Dumas' service as Madonna's nanny. Sample chapters and chapter summaries provide a laundry list of alleged details pertaining to Madonna's marriage to Ritchie, their children's behavior, the family's participation in Kabbalah, and the motivation behind Madonna's decision to adopt a boy from Malawi. The pitch also contains personal photos of Madonna's family, as well as photos of the alleged nanny playing with Madonna's kids.

The proposal includes a copy of an unsigned nondisclosure agreement that the author claims Madonna issued to her only after she had already resigned as her nanny.

Sharlene Martin, the literary agent listed in the proposal, would not confirm nor deny an affiliation with the proposal or the listed author. She also would not confirm or deny that the proposal has been bought by a publisher. Neither Dumas nor a representative for Madonna responded immediately to efforts to contact them for comment.
