She tried to use the “Bitch I’m Madonna” argument. But the court was having none of it.

A Manhattan judge on Thursday chucked Madonna’s lawsuit against the board of her Upper West Side co-op, finding the singer waited too long to file the complaint.

Madonna sued the board at Harperley Hall at 1 West 64th Street, after it tried to enforce a rule that her four children (the oldest of whom is 21 years old) couldn’t live in her apartment unless she was physically present. However, according to the New York Post, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Gerald Lebovits found that Madonna should’ve filed the lawsuit sooner — rather than two years after the co-op board changed her original proprietary lease to reflect the rule.

Madonna had argued that she has places to be.

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

Madonna purchased the duplex apartment in 2008 for $7.3 million. [NYP] — Kathryn Brenzel
