Madonna Halts 'Grossly Offensive' Auction of Her Panties & Tupac Letter

The pop icon filed for emergency judicial action to take her personal items off the auction stand.

Madonna sought an emergency court order after learning her used panties and a letter from her former boyfriend, Tupac, were up for auction via Gotta Have It! Collectibles.

A New York state Supreme Court judge acquiesced, halting the impending auction of the goods, which Madonna was "shocked to learn" were being sold, according to Billboard. She added that the sale is "outrageous and grossly offensive," and that she hadn't even known the items were no longer in her possession. The pieces were apparently brought to auction by a "former friend," again according to Billboard.

The letter in question is one that recently surfaced, and something Tupac wrote to Madonna in prison, where he explained that his reason for breaking up with her was because she was white.

"For you to be seen with a black man wouldn't in any way jeopardize your career," he wrote. "If anything it would make you seem that much more open and exciting. But for me at least in my previous perception I felt due to my 'image' I would be letting down half of the people who made me what I thought I was. I never meant to hurt you."

The auction house is expected to take action to try and continue with sale of the goods, according to the New York Post.
