Madonna and the co-op board of her Upper West Side building are back in court. This time the co-op board is suing the pop star in an attempt to force her to honor a rule requiring her to be present when members of her family and staff are living in the unit.

In April, Madonna sued the board of the Harperley Hall co-op at West 64th Street and Central Park West where she owns a $7.3 million apartment for trying to enforce a rule require her to be “in residence” when other guests are living in the apartment, according to the New York Post.

“Plaintiff is a world-renowned recording artist, performer and singer who is constantly on world tours,” Madonna argued in in court papers. “As such, plaintiff owns many residences around the world and travels extensively worldwide.”

For Madonna the rules would be that her kids could not stay in their home when she is travelling.

But the co-op fired back. Madonna cannot “credibly claim she was treated any differently from every other shareholder,” the building’s lawyer, Patrick Sweeney, says in new court papers asking a judge to toss the suit.

Her primary Manhattan residence is a $32.5 Million Townhouse On East 81st Street. She purchased the Harperley Hall in 2008 after marrying Sean Penn. [NYP]Christopher Cameron
