Madonna loses auction battle over Tupac's break-up letter

A letter between Tupac and Madonna can be sold at auction a Manhattan Supreme Court Judge ruled Monday

"Yet before this auction began, the plaintiff did not make any demand to return her possessions".

The singer had said she did not realize the items were no longer in her possession until she saw press coverage of the auction.

However, Ms. Lutz added, "She didn't take the route that Beyoncé did" - a reference to the pop star's exhaustive personal archiving system.

Madonna had no idea that Lutz had letters ownership, which Tupac wrote a year before his death in 1995. she heard about the online auction last year. I never gave this letter away.

A letter from Tupac to Madonna, along with several other of the Material Girl's personal items, can be sold at auction.

You might recall how back in July of a year ago, it was announced that a letter written by Tupac Shakur to Madonna was set to head for auction, with bidding starting at $100,000.




Gotta Have It! co-owner Ed Kosinski celebrated the decision. While there's little to no evidence of their love affair, there is a break-up letter that Tupac wrote to Madge that's about to hit the auction block despite efforts from Madonna to keep that from happening.

The famed jailhouse letter that 2Pac wrote to Madonna giving a post-mortem of their breakup had previously been put up for auction back in July of past year.

The auction house has now won the legal battle, and the auction will go ahead in July.

While Madonna says that some of the items are "highly confidential and embarrassing", you'd have to wonder who in their right mind would hand over such things to anyone in the first place.

The singer and Ms Lutz had already settled down a legal dispute over artwork auction back in 2003 and she had signed a release from "any and all" future claims against Tupac. Now, a judge has ruled that it will remain available for purchase, despite Madonna's objections. 2Pac explained that he felt pressure from his fans to support the image of himself he had created, and that, coupled with his hurt from certain comments Madonna had made, contributed to their split.
