Do you remember the letter Tupac wrote in prison, highlighting that he had broken up with Madonna because she was white and bad for his image? Well, it appears it won’t be going up for auction after all. A judge has blocked the sale of 22 items that Madonna has deemed as “extremely private and personally sensitive.” Of those items are previously worn satin underwear and the letter Tupac Shakur wrote to her from jail.
Photos, a checkbook, a hairbrush, unreleased recordings and other items were also placed up for auction. They are listed as having been put on sale by Darlene Lutz, Madonna’s “art consultant” and “a longtime personal friend of Madonna’s from her innermost circle, knowing her for over 20 years,” according to the description she provided.
Madonna says that Lutz had regular access to her home at one point. She says that Lutz helped her move, but she never gifted or sold any of her belongings to her. In her court filing, Madonna says she is “suffering irreparable harm” due to the “unauthorized display, disclosure and dissemination of highly personal information, including her, her friend’s and former boyfriends’ confidential mental thoughts and impressions.”
56 of the 128 items from Madonna’s personal collection still remain up for auction.
