Madonna loses lawsuit to halt auction of personal memorabiliaMadonna has lost her bid to stop the auction of her old personal belongings, including a love letter she received from rapper Tupac Shakur whilst he was in jail.
Madonna has lost a legal battle to stop the auction of a series of personal items including a break-up letter from the late rapper Tupac Shakur.
The singer filed an emergency court order in July 2017 to stop the auction of 22 items which came from the collection of her her former personal assistant Darlene Lutz. At the time, bidding on the letter from Tupac had reached 100 000 dollars.
On Monday, April 23, the New York judge presiding over the case ruled in favour of the auctioneers, saying the statute of limitations to recover her items had passed.
The auction, which also includes other intimate items including a hairbrush with strands of Madonna's hair, will now go ahead in July.
