The Like a Prayer hitmaker was reportedly banned from a New York theatre after she was caught texting throughout a performance of hip-hop musical Hamilton in April (15).

Madonna's publicist Liz Rosenberg blasted the reports at the time, stating, "It's not true", but Groff, who stars in the show, has now spoken out to insist the singer was using her cell phone during the show.

When asked by if he was upset the singer could not come and see him perform again, he said, "No. Because that b**ch was on her phone. You couldn't miss it from the stage. It was a black void of the audience in front of us and her face there perfectly lit by the light of her iPhone through three-quarters of the show."
