Madonna’s lawsuit against co-op board tossed

It’s time for Madonna’s lawsuit against a Central Park West co-op board to take a bow.

A judge ruled Thursday that Madge waited too long to sue the board of Harperley Hall for changing the building’s rules to bar her children from using the opulent $7.3 million pad when she is not home.

'Because (Madonna) commenced this action more than four months after she became aware of being aggrieved by it, her first and second causes of action are time-barred,' Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Gerald Lebovits wrote.

Madonna bought the home at 1 W. 64th St. in 2008. The co-op board changed the terms of the lease in April 2, 2014 - but Madonna didn’t sue until April 1, 2016, Lebovits noted.

The statute of limitations on Madonna’s claims against the board is four months.

Madonna had argued that her duties as the Queen of Pop made it impossible for her to comply with the board’s rules.

'Plaintiff is a world renowned recording artist, performer and singer who is constantly on world tours. As such, Plaintiff owns many residences around the world and travels extensively worldwide,' Madonna wrote in her lawsuit.

Madonna had asked the court to declare the new rules didn’t apply to her and that her four children, other family members or 'certain others' could use the unit when she was out of town.

Though the ruling guts Madonna’s legal effort, the judge did allow her to continue seeking documents on the board’s decision-making, as well as legal fees.

When in New York, the 'Express Yourself' singer’s primary residence is thought to be a townhouse on E. 81st St.

In a wide-ranging interview, the singer talked about her charity, Raising Malawi; her life with her six children, including four adoptees from Malawi; and how motherhood has been a healing experience for her.

Madonna has given an exclusive interview to People magazine and features on the cover in the September 18 issue which will hit US newsstands on Friday.

'Madonna may be the highest-selling female artist of all time, but at home she’s just Mom - or 'Mambo,' as the four youngest of her six kids call her.

For this week’s issue, the pop icon, 59, offered a rare glimpse inside her private world, inviting PEOPLE to join her in Malawi on July 11, when she opened the Mercy James Centre for Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care, the nation’s first children’s hospital. A month later, at her home in London, she opened up about her emotional adoption journey, why she’s dedicated to helping the children of Malawi - and her busy, rewarding life as mom to Lourdes, 20, Rocco, 17, David, 11, Mercy, 11, and 5-year-old twins Estere and Stella.'
