The 'Material Girl' hitmaker sued officials at the Harperley Hall co-operative building in Manhattan back in 2016 objecting to a 2014 change in leasing rules. The new conditions of her lease prohibited her children and domestic employees from living in the luxury $7.3 million (£5.7 million) unit unless she was 'in residence'.
Madonna's suit was originally dismissed last year (17), as she had filed it too late after the rule change. She continued her legal fight by requesting documents detailing how her lease was changed.
Judge Gerald Lebovits denied her requests and in November he formally tossed her lawsuit. However, according to the New York Post the 60-year-old musician filed a notice of appeal with the Manhattan Supreme Court on Wednesday, December 26, asking for the decision to be reversed.
Madonna, who has six children, claimed the home was her primary residence and that her status as an international popstar made it impossible for her to stick to the new conditions.
'Such a requirement is ridiculous and impossible for almost any family to comply with, and certainly not someone with plaintiff's itinerant schedule,' legal documents filed as part of her original case state.
She stated that the Harperley Hall co-op knew of her superstar status before leasing her the apartment, and so had no right to change the conditions of her lease in a way that clashed with the demands of her profession.
Last August, Madonna moved to a palatial mansion Lisbon, Portugal, to allow David to join the youth academy at top European soccer team S.L. Benfica.
