Madonna’s fan accuses her of exposing concertgoers to ‘pornography without warning’ at shows in lawsuit

Madonna is facing a lawsuit from a fan who feels “deceived” by her Celebration World Tour.

The fan, Justen Lipeles, filed a class action suit in California alleging that Madonna and her promoter Live Nation misled concertgoers into purchasing expensive tickets for shows in February and March.

The lawsuit claims that crucial information was withheld in the marketing of the tour, including the late start times of the concerts, uncomfortable temperatures at the venues, and allegations of lip-syncing during performances.

The court documents also include accusations that Madonna’s shows featured topless women simulating sexual acts on stage, without warning the audience. The lawsuit names several California venues, along with Madonna and Live Nation, as defendants.

This is not the first time Madonna has faced legal trouble related to her Celebration Tour. In January, two fans sued her for starting a concert late at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, citing false advertising.

Madonna’s legal team filed a motion to dismiss the claims, arguing that the concert start time was not explicitly advertised and that delays are common at major arena events.

Despite the legal challenges, Madonna’s Celebration Tour received positive reviews in Europe and North America. Live Nation defended the tour, citing technical issues and delays during soundcheck as the cause of the late start times. The company intends to vigorously defend against the lawsuits.

As of now, Madonna has not commented on the recent lawsuit filed by Justen Lipeles. The legal battle is ongoing, and it remains to be seen how it will impact the future of Madonna’s music career.
