MOSCOW: Several Russian activists have filed a 10-million-dollar lawsuit against Madonna, claiming they were offended by the pop diva's support of homosexuals during her recent show, their lawyer said Monday.

"On Friday, a 333-million-ruble lawsuit was filed against Madame Louise Veronica Ciccone who calls herself Madonna," Alexander Pochuyev, a lawyer representing the activists told AFP.

He also said the suit targeted the organisers of Madonna's show in Saint Petersburg this month as well as the concert hall.
