Madonna has instituted legal proceedings against the owners of her Upper West Side apartment building for trying to enforce a new regulation that prevented her children and staff from living in the $7.3 million place while she is not around.
According to Page Six, the “Like A Prayer” hitmaker, who has been busy with her Rebel Heart tour, is now suing Harperley Hall because it “illegally changed her original proprietary lease in April 2014 to say that her children and domestic help cannot live in the unit unless she herself is ‘in residence’ at the time.”
The apartment building’s new rule also imposed to put a stop to anyone under the age of 16 from living in the pad, unless with an adult over the age of 21 is in the particular place.
Madonna’s legal action stated that it’s an impossible situation for her, as the singer pointed out that her line of work requires her to travel extensively.
Madonna’s court papers asserted, “Plaintiff is a world-renowned recording artist, performer and singer who is constantly on world tours.” The American singer, songwriter and actress’ Manhattan civil suits says, “As such, plaintiff owns many residences around the world and travels extensively worldwide.”
Mirror UK reported that Madonna wanted the apartment building to stop its latest rule so her children and personnel can stay in the place when she’s away. However, no words were received from the apartment building’s representative.
The highest-grossing solo-touring artist of all time has four children. Rocco and Lourdes are now teenagers. David Banda is 10 and Mercy James is 9. Madonna was recently embroiled in a custody battle over Rocco with his father, English filmmaker Guy Ritchie.
