Madonna hides face behind a scarf in NYC as she's seen for first time since ex Dennis Rodman's claims she offered him $20MILLION to get her pregnant
She was the focus of bombshell claims on Thursday, when her ex Dennis Rodman alleged in an interview that she'd offered him $20million to get her pregnant.
And Madonna, 61, emerged in New York City just hours later, when she stepped out for her Madame X Tour concert at Brooklyn's Howard Gilman Opera House.
The mother-of-six appeared keen to keep a low profile, hiding her face behind a patterned scarf, while she covered up in an equally colourful kaftan dress.

The Justify My Love singer took her efforts further, donning a pair of white-rimmed sunglasses and covering her blonde locks with a black wide-rimmed hat.
Rounding out her ensemble with black opaque tights and a pair of black leather booties, the pop icon raced past fans camped outside the venue ahead of her show.
Michigan native Madonna's outing came hours after Dennis Rodman claimed she offered him $20 million if he could get her pregnant when they dated in the 1990s.

In an interview on The Breakfast Club, the 58-year-old former basketball player spoke candidly about his romance with the singer, which lasted just two months.
Talking to hosts Charlamagne tha God, DJ Envy and Angela Yee, the sportsman was asked: 'They say you broke up with Madonna because you didn't want to get her pregnant? She wanted to get pregnant. Why do you want to get Madonna pregnant?'
Dennis, who has spoken candidly about their relationship in the past, responded: 'Oh I tried. I tried over here by Central Park. She had that big three-storey place over there. I was rolling the dice in Vegas. This a good story. What a good story.
'I was rolling the dice in Vegas and she's in New York and she calls and the next thing I know is [someone shouts], "Hey Dennis you got a call from Madonna."
Low-key: The mother-of-six appeared keen to keep a low profile, hiding her face behind a patterned scarf, while she covered up in an equally colourful kaftan dress
'So I say hold the dice and get the call. She said, "Dennis I'm ovulating." I said, "What? You ovulating? What is that?" I was trying to f**k with her, right?'
Quoting Madonna's response, he said: '"You know, ovulating?" I said, "Oh, OK great. So I'll be there in five hours." So I put the dice down and I said, "Hold the table."
Dennis continued with the story: 'She sent a plane to me, a G5. I went to the airport. Came here, flew here, went and did my thing at her house. Did my thing, went back on the plane. They held the table. I was playing dice game.'
One host enquired, 'So you just went there, had sex and got on the plane and went back?', prompting Dennis to reply: 'That's a true story.'

Radio personality Charlamagne asked: 'Was there at least some foreplay?' to which he answered 'No, no, no, no, no. I was trying to get back to my table.'
When asked why he didn't stay or cuddle, he said: 'Do people cuddle these days?'
They asked him if he got lucky on the table that night and he said: 'No, I got lucky with Lamar Hunt's daughter.'
Charlamagne asked if he gives credit to Madonna for making him a star, to which the former Laker asserted: 'No, its the other way around.'
Shocker: The star's ex Dennis Rodman claimed the star offered him $20 million if he could get her pregnant when they dated in the 1990s, according to his interview on The Breakfast Club
Dennis explained: 'In 1993, her career was declining. And she said that the reason why she dated me was because I was a bad boy, that's why she dated me. I was going up. She was pretty much levelling off.'
Asked if he was disappointed he didn't get her pregnant, he said: 'No. Well, she asked me that... if I got her pregnant she'd pay me $20 million. That's if the baby was born.'
Angela said 'That's some expensive sperm' before Charlamagne wondered if she made anyone else that offer.
'Well she did right?' Dennis said. 'Who she dated a dancer?,' referring to former personal trainer and actor - and the father of Madonna's first child Lourdes Leon, now 22.

Dennis has previously claimed Madonna wanted to conceive with him, writing in his 2005 autobiography, I Should Be Dead By Now, that she 'wanted to have my babies'.
He wrote: 'Here's how it went. One time I was in Las Vegas at the craps table doing my thing when I got this frantic call. It was like the "somebody died call" from New York.'
He continued: 'I picked up the phone and Madonna was like, "I'm ovulating, I'm ovulating. Get your a** up here."
'So I left my chips on the table, flew five hours to New York and did my thing.

'We got done and she was standing there on her head in an attempt to promote conception - just like any girl trying to get pregnant. I flew back to Las Vegas and picked up my game where I left off.'
Madonna had her first child, Lourdes, with dancer Carlos Leon, whom she dated from 1995 until 1997.
She is also mother to Rocco, 19, whom she shares with ex-husband Guy Ritchie. The star later adopted David, 13, Mercy, 13, and seven-year-old twins Estere and Stelle.
Dennis has three children: Alexis, 31, with ex wife Annie Bakes; Dennis Junior, 19, and Trinity, 18, with ex wife Michelle Moyer.
