Pop star Madonna is suing her longtime art consultant Darlene Lutz, claiming she is owed $265,000 for a painting that the adviser sold.

The summons filed in Manhattan Supreme Court and made public Friday says Lutz owes Madonna the money based on a settlement agreement made between the two women in May 2004.

“The lawsuit is based on a breach of contract agreement,” said Liz Rosenberg, spokeswoman for Madonna.

Rosenberg had no details on the name of the painting or the artist.

Lutz did not return calls to her office for comment.
