Material girl sued over not working with punctual world

We are living in a punctual world, and she is not a punctual girl.

And that’s why Madonna is facing a lawsuit over her notorious knack for being late to her concerts, CNN reported Monday.

Miami resident Nate Hollander filed his lawsuit on Monday in Miami-Dade County Court against both concert organizer Live Nation and Madonna alleging that the change in start times for her Madame X Tour is a “breach of contract” between the singer and the ticket holder, according to the news network.

Mr. Hollander purchased four tickets for $1,024.95 for the Dec. 17 show in Miami that was slated to start at 8:30 p.m.. When Live Nation and Madonna changed the time to 10:30 p.m. last month, Mr. Hollander decided that was too late for a concert and he no longer wanted to go. Meanwhile, a refund had not been offered.

Mr. Hollander now claims in his suit that attempts to resell won't make up for the money lost, as tickets have now “suffered an extreme loss of value” because of the time change, he alleges. That makes reselling “impossible,” he told reporters, claiming that he and other ticket holders “suffered actual and consequential damages including, but not limited to, loss of consideration paid and the devaluation of the ticket.” 

Madonna, who acknowledges that she is frequently late, has not publicly commented. But she did tell concertgoers in Las Vegas recently: “There's something that you all need to understand. ... And that is, that a queen is never late.”
