Madonna Faces Lawsuit for ‘Subjecting’ Fans to ‘Pornography’

Pop star Madonna is facing yet another lawsuit for featuring pornography in the set of her recent “Celebration” tour.

The pop icon was accused of subjecting fans to “pornography without warning” at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles on March 7, according to a complaint obtained by Entertainment Weekly.

Yahoo reports: Justen Lipeles, who filed the suit in Los Angeles County Superior Court, is reportedly accusing both Madonna and her concert organizers of false advertising and intentional infliction of emotional distress, among other charges.

Lipeles claims he was unaware there would be “topless women on stage simulating sex acts” at the concert, and alleged Madonna had the air conditioning turned off throughout the venue, creating temperatures that made him physically ill.

“Forcing consumers to wait hours in hot, uncomfortable arenas and subjecting them to pornography without warning is demonstrative of Madonna’s flippant disrespect for her fans,” argued the suit, which was first reported by entertainment site The Blast.

HuffPost has reached out to Madonna’s representatives for comment.

The singer had was sued in December for “unconscionable, unfair, and/or deceptive trade practices” by two fans who attended her December concert in New York, who claimed the show kicked off two hours behind schedule.

Madonna’s team reportedly blamed technical issues for that delay, but Lipeles accused her of the same tardiness in Wednesday’s complaint.

Her legal team tried to dismiss the January case and said they’d “vigorously” defend her.

In their motion to dismiss, obtained by EW, the pop star’s lawyers wrote that “no reasonable concertgoer — and certainly no Madonna fan — would expect the headline act at a major arena concert to take the stage at the ticketed event time.”

Fans have complained of the singer’s lateness before. Madonna was reportedly also sued as early as 2019 by an attendee of her “Madame X” tour concert in Florida, who accused her of postponing the show by two hours.
