Lourdes Leon Ciccone, the 15-year-old daughter of Madonna, was caught smoking a cigarette over the weekend, despite she is not the legal age to be smoking in a series of incriminating photos on the Internet.

Lourdes was caught in New York on March 23 lighting up a smoke with her friends nonchalantly while photographers snapped away as a male friend lit the cig for her. Unfazed, Lourdes continued to puff away and even held the cigarette upside down at one point to conceal it.

Madonna, 53, is currently under fire for setting a bad example for her daughter, as she is seen in her new music video for the song Girl Gone Wild puffing away. The video was even banned and set on YouTube with privacy control, not viewable to those under the age of 18.

While we don't comment on individual videos, we review all videos flagged by our users against our community guidelines. In some cases we restrict flagged material that, while not in violation of those guidelines, contains images that may be unsuitable for younger users, a representative at YouTube said in a recent statement.

Meanwhile, while Lourdes was smoking the cigarette, the Material Girl was performing during a show at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami's Bayfront Park on Saturday night.

Madonna denied claims recently that she began smoking again after photos of the singer surfaced while filming her movie W.E. in 2010 holding what appeared to be a cigarette.

Lourdes will also follow in her mother's footsteps in May when she joins Madge for a 50 country world tour as a backup dancer.

It is the first time Lourdes will have appeared on stage with her mum, a source told The Daily Mail. There are risque dancers and some blatantly sexual dance routines- but Madonna is really excited about Lourdes making an appearance.
