Madonna‘s representative has denied reports that the pop diva was texting during a performance of Hamilton at New York City’s Public Theater.

“It’s not true. She was invited backstage four different times. She texted post show when they were doing their fundraising pitch. Madonna had already made a generous donation,” her rep Liz Rosenberg addressed the incident in a statement.

Tony winner Lin-Manuel Miranda, the star, author and composer for the show, had made a pointed reference to an unnamed celebrity audience member, who practised poor theatre-going etiquette.

“Tonight was the first time I asked stage management NOT to allow a celebrity (who was texting all through Act 2) backstage #noselfieforyou,” Miranda had tweeted.

The tweet was later deleted but according to sources it was Madonna who was texting throughout the night. The “Rebel Heart” hitmaker had received flak from film critic Charles Taylor for reportedly texting during a screening of “12 Years a Slave” at the New York Film Festival.
