Madonna has received an official warning from London council officers after staff at her home in Marylebone upset neighbours by staging a noisy party.
The singer, who has been issued with a noise abatement order, was out the country when the incident took place on the afternoon of June 27.
Westminster City Council said the case is unlikely to go to court, but warned that any further offences could see Madonna summoned to appear before magistrates and face a £5,000 fine.
Councillor Ed Argar, cabinet member for city management, said: ”We take the issue of noise pollution very seriously and treat every case alike and fairly, regardless of who owns the property concerned.
”If people want to hold a party, regardless of the time of day or night, they need to show some common courtesy to their neighbours, who should not have to pay the price for others’ selfish behaviour.”
A notice was pushed through her letterbox on the day and a further notice addressed to the owner was handed to staff in person the following day (June 28), reports the Daily Telegraph.
