Madonna misses jury duty due to sickness, then enjoys beach holiday
The singer provides a doctor’s note to excuse herself from jury duty, before sharing pictures of her family on a weekend away
Madonna was excused from jury duty this week, the same time as she shared a series of pictures of her family on a beach holiday.
She was due to appear for the Manhattan jury pool on Tuesday 27 May, but sent a doctor’s note to exempt herself dated Monday 26 May.
“A legitimate doctor’s note was received saying she is unable to attend,” a source told The New York Post.
Madonna's spokesperson, Liz Rosenberg, said that her jury service “is being rescheduled”.
Despite her ill-health, the musician and dancer posted a series of pictures on her Instagram page documenting a sunny-looking weekend away, including a shot of her dog on the beach, her son surfing and another of herself riding a horse last weekend. Madonna riding a horse on holiday
