Criminal Overtones in Madonna Stage Deaths

7/18/2009 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

French cops are treating the two deaths associated with Madonna's stage collapse as homicide -- this according to the British Press Association.



Assistant prosecutor Marc Simamonti said the prosecutor's office opened an investigation for manslaughter and involuntary injuries in a work-related accident, and that initial hearings will be held on Sunday or Monday.

While the cause of the collapse is still unknown, a faulty power winch may have been at fault.

According to her website, Madonna is "devastated" by news of the two deaths.

E S Group are the one who were in charge with building the stage, so they are the ones who are responsible for this tragic accident. Not Madonna period. And cancel the tour? Should an airliner cut all his flights after one of it's plane crashes? Should the trains stop riding when somebody killed himself by jumping infront of it? Bot times the awnser is, no. Madonna can't just go and cancel the tour. Just like the Rolling Stones contunued their tour when two people died building their stage about 2 year ago. Funny how that didn't get any attention at all.

OH please, she doesnt care, she should pay for the loss and damages some one should. Those families lost their loved ones, pay something you baby stealer Madonna. I used to love Madonna but now shes just a monster baby stealer. taking kids from african countires when those KIDS have families...there are kids who are actual orphans without, grandmas or grandfathers or fathers or mothers...take from there dont use ur legal team to suppress poor families.

I bet the majority of people who say she should give money are American. The country were you can sue a man for looking at you the wrong way. Typical that the fist thing you guys talk about is suing and money. It must be an American thing. And you guys call her a money grabbing cow...Pot calling the kettle.

That aging slut is money hungry but how many MILLIONS does she need??? If she had kept her 50 yr old ass at home where she has 2 of her own kids, and 2 kids she bought and paid for, those 2 workers would still be alive and with their kids. She is so hungry for the limelight even tho' it shows up her wrinkles and haggy face, that she keeps going. Why doesnt she just give it up? At age 50, with 4 kids, her boy toys and her $100,000.000.00 cant she find something else to do but open her legs and point her crotch at the world??? Two men died for this old slut!!! And soon she will be putting on her cone bra and her high cut with little crotch material panties and strut her 50 yr old butt! Give it up your old hag!

Woo Hoo!!!!    

She probably had it all setup herself to get some publicity since nobody's paying attention to her anymore. Nobody cared about her recent adoption, nobody cares about her dating a 22 year old, and she was out of ideas so she had to resort to this.
