Madonna neighbour sues over noise

A woman who lives in an apartment above Madonna in Manhattan has complained to the New York State Supreme Court about the pop star rehearsing to loud music.

BBC reports:
Karen George said in papers that the star and "her invited guests repeatedly dance and / or train" to "unreasonable high decibel amplified music". She is suing the management company of the Manhattan building, saying it has failed to act on her complaints. Spokeswomen for the management company and Madonna have declined to comment. In the papers, Ms George said she had been forced to leave the building during the sessions - which caused "noise and vibration to pour through the walls" - because she found them "unbearable". She said nothing had been done since she first complained in 2008. Madonna moved into the seventh-floor apartment in the building, which overlooks Central Park, following her divorce from film director Guy Ritchie.
