Singer Madonna has settled a dispute with her neighbour, who took legal action against the star over the noise she made in her New York apartment. In 2009 Karen George filed legal papers complaining that Madonna was repeatedly using the flat as a rehearsal space. Ms George said she was driven from her apartment at times by the unbearable noise and vibrations. Madonnas lawyers said the matter had been resolved, but no further detail has been released. In 2009 Ms George said dance routines subjected her to blaring music, stomping and shaking walls for up to three hours a day. She also launched legal action against the management company of the Manhattan building, saying it had failed to act on her complaints. BBC
