Madonna fails to report for jury duty

Madonna has failed to report for jury duty in Manhattan, New York, despite showing up for her previous duty in Beverly Hills six years ago.

The 55-year-old star had been summoned to the Manhattan Supreme Court at 111 Centre Street near City Hall in New York to perform her civic duty along with a jury of her peers but failed to attend, according to the New York Post newspaper.

The 'Hung Up' singer allegedly did not inform the court she would not be attending, despite New York jurors being granted one automatic postponement upon application, and therefore at 9am court security were expecting her to arrive.

Madonna - who reportedly earns $1 million for each of her stage appearances and whose real name is Madonna Louise Ciccone - last participated in jury service in 2008 at a court in Beverly Hills, California, but the case was dismissed just fours later.

The 'Like A Virgin' hitmaker - who previously admitted she was sexually assaulted and paid for her rent by posing nude for art classes when she first moved to New York - lives in a gated mansion worth $32 million on the prestigious Lexington Avenue.
