Madonna may face a fine of $10.5 million for her brave decision to defy a ban and encourage LGBT equality during her recent St. Petersburg concert, according to Rolling Stone.

While performing her MDNA show August 9, Madonna followed through on her promise to speak out against a gag law banning pro-LGBT speech in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Rolling Stone reports RIA Novosti, a Russian news agency, saying a group of activists has announced they will file a $10.5 million lawsuit for "moral damage" against the entertainer.

"We demand that she pay for moral damage suffered by St. Petersburg residents as a result of her actions during the show on August 9th," a spokeswoman for the Union of Russian Citizens says. "We must defend our right to normal cultural life without propaganda of values and views that contradict the Russian culture."
