Madonna’s current tour has received quite a lot of (negative) media attention. Between her constant flashing of nipples and butt cheeks, the Material Girl now has a lawsuit on her hands after a concert in Paris on Saturday.

After receiving previous threats from France’s far-right National Front, Madonna chose not to alter any of the images used on stage during her tour. On Saturday in Paris, French party leader, Marine Le Pen’s, face was covered by an image of a Nazi swastika during a photomontage that also included Madonna with a Hitler mustache.

Alain Vizier, a spokesperson for the National Front, has informed the Associated Press that the party intends to file an official complaint in the French Court for these “insults”.

Madonna used the same imagery at a show in Tel Aviv in early June. Le Pen threatened to take action if the singer chose to use the montage at her scheduled Paris show.

"We understand how old singers who need to get people talking about them go to such extremes," Le Pen told the Daily Mail after the Tel Aviv show.

"If she does that in France, we will be waiting."

Well, it seems that Le Pen plans to follow through with her threats.

"We are not a Nazi party, and object to being depicted as such," a National Front source told The Daily Mail.

"If you accuse the National Front of being anti-Semitic and racist then you accuse a fifth of the French people of being anti-Semitic and racist."

The National Front and Le Pen were previously associated with anti-Semitism and racism due to rhetoric of the party’s previous lead, Jean-Marie Le Pen, Marine’s father.
