Madonna has successfully stopped the sale of a breakup letter that Tupac Shakur sent her from prison.
Page Six reports the pop star placed an emergency order demanding the handwritten letter and other personal items be pulled from a scheduled auction, and a judge agreed.
The note and worn underwear were among 22 items that will no longer be sold in the Gotta Have It! Collectibles auction set for July 19th.
Madonna said in court documents, “I understand that my DNA could be extracted form a piece of my hair. It is outrageous and grossly offensive that my DNA could be auctioned for sale to the general public.”
“I was shocked to learn of the planned auctioning of the Shakur letter, as I had no idea that the Shakur letter was no longer in my possession.”
TMZ published the letter – which had a starting bid of $100,000 – earlier this month. It revealed that Tupac ended their romance because of race.
Madonna added: “The fact that I have attained celebrity status as a result of success in my career does not obviate my right to maintain my privacy, including with regard to highly personal items.”
The superstar singer claims “a former friend” was selling the items.
