New York - The Material Girl was forced to cancel her trip to the UK this weekend via the private airport at RAF Northolt as the temperature rose in her ongoing feud with Marine Le Pen.
A tip-off informed her that the French Far Right politician's attorneys were at the exclusive West London hub waiting to serve defamation papers on the singer following controversy at her Israel concerts.
Apparently a video film was shown as a stage backdrop featuring the fascist Frenchwoman's face suddenly sprouting a swastika on her forehead and Adolf Hitler's eyes.
The Tel Aviv crowds cheered as the neo-Nazi image was replaced by Madonna's own face - morphing into various Global Piss Process luminaries such as Chinese leader Hu Jinatao, Republican ex-Presidential wannabe Sarah Palin and Pope Benedict XVI.
That same video is due to be shown again when Madonna plays a Bastille Day concert in Paris on July 14th this year - something that has enraged Le Pen whose own back yard will host the gig.
Madonna, whose own attorneys are based in London, was forced to fly bucket-shop to the infinitely less discrete but far safer option of City Airport in East London where celeb lawyer Minty Delabooboo met her armed with a pile of counter-writs citing the 5th Amendment and other free speech/fair comment legal papers.
On Monday the boot was on the other foot as Marine Le Pen was forced to detour via Palermo Airport on her fact-finding tour of EU states.
Madonna's lawyers' Italian associate orifice was ready and waiting to serve harassment counter-charges against the Frenchwoman - who ended up flying cargo to Addis Ababa along with a consignment of Alsatian dogs bound for the country's Police department.
Meanwhile 18% of the French population voted for the neo-Nazi leader who is a running for seat in parliamentary elections on June 10 and 17.
