Madonna files emergency court order to block auction of Tupac breakup letter

Madonna is fighting back!

The pop singer won an emergency court order on Tuesday (July 18, 2017) in New York City to block an auction house from putting out 20 items of personal memorabilia. It included “personally worn panties”, an old checkbook, a hairbrush, personal photos and a handwritten letter from former boyfriend Tupac Shakur when he was in prison.

After the “Rebel Heart” singer filed a restraining order request in New York Supreme Court, Judge Gerald Leibovitz issued a temporary restraining order against Gotta Have Rock and Roll. It halted, for now, its rock-and-roll-themed auction which was scheduled to begin on Wednesday morning, July 19.

“I have never sold, gifted, transferred or otherwise disposed of the Shakur letter,” the singer claimed in the restraining order request. In the court documents, Madonna blamed Darlene Lutz, a former friend, and art consultant, saying that she had “betrayed” her trust “in an outrageous effort to obtain” her possessions, unbeknownst to her.

Madonna said it’s “outrageous and grossly offensive” her DNA could be auctioned.

An auction house spokesman tells the New York Post the allegations will be “challenged and refuted” in court.
