— Days after it was revealed that a 13-year-old had danced nude at the establishment, the city of Miami Beach closed Club Madonna for six months.

The Miami Beach strip club where police say a 13-year-old had danced nude for money has had its license pulled by the city.

City Manager Jimmy Morales pulled Club Madonna's license for six months while police investigate the case.

“Based on the gravity of recent allegations, the evidence collected and the owner’s admitted failure to have the required knowledge of what illegal activity occurs at Club Madonna, I have determined that this activity presents an actual threat to the public health, welfare and safety of the public,” said Miami Beach City Manager Jimmy L. Morales. Three people were arrested Monday, charged with forcing a runaway teen to prostitute herself and later to dance at the fully nude club on Washington Avenue.
