Madonna has reportedly avoided jury duty in New York City.

The pop superstar, who has lived in the Big Apple since the early 1980s, had been expected to perform her civic duty at Manhattan Supreme Court but failed to show up.

The 55-year-old singer presented a letter from a medical professional which ruled her out of the session, according to New York Daily News.

A source told the publication the note insisted Madonna would be willing to serve on a jury over the coming days.

New York County Clerk Norman Goodman has confirmed the letter is real and that the star will likely serve at the court at some point in the near future.

Madonna previously attended jury duty in Beverly Hills, California in 2008, but was dismissed after four hours.

The star is thought to have spent the Memorial Day weekend with her family and marked the occasion with a picture of some peonies on her Instagram account earlier today.
