Madonna has revealed that she was fined one million dollars by the Russian Government, eight years ago.

She was fined for ‘supporting the Gay community’.

“I made this speech at a concert in St. Petersburg 8 years ago. I was fined 1 million dollars by The government for supporting the Gay community,” she tweeted.

“I never paid……”

Russia is infamous for its conservative views on homosexuality, even to this day, they even have a federal law banning support of ‘ non-traditional’ relationships.
