Gotta Have Rock and Roll wins battle over Madonna's Tupac breakup letter

"(Madonna) knew that throughout her relationship with Lutz, Lutz was in possession of various pieces of (Madonna's) personal property" the judge wrote in his decision, obtained by the New York Daily News. The items were up for sale by auction house, Gotta Have Rock and Roll but it was taken down after Madonna sought for an injunction on sale in July.

The singer, 59, obtained an injunction to halt the sale previous year after warning that strands left on the hairbrush could be used to extract her DNA. "I never meant to hurt you".

The 1995 letter, which was written by Tupac while in prison, was sent to Madonna in order to inform her that their relationship was ending because Tupac was anxious that dating a white woman could damage his reputation. At the time, bidding on the letter from Tupac had reached $100,000.

In the letter, the 24-year-old rapper wrote to Madonna, then 37, that a continued interracial relationship would negatively impact his image. "We were confident that Madonna had no claim whatsoever, and the judge clearly agreed with us", said auction house co-owners Ed Kosinski & Pete Siegel.

The letter, which can be read in part here, contained musings from the late rap legend about the circumstances of the once power couple's breakup.

Her used brush and satin panties were among the items that she temporarily prevented from going up for bid through the lawsuit.

Marc Marquez wins in Texas for sixth year in a row
The recovery puts Marquez in prime position to win his 6th consecutive race at the Circuit of the Americas in Texas. The demotion did little to hinder Marquez as he and Iannone got off to good starts with the latter in the lead.

The judge also noted that Madonna lost her claim over the items in her employment termination agreement between herself and Darlene Lutz.

On Monday (April 23), the NY judge presiding over the case ruled in favour of the auctioneers, saying the statute of limitations to recover her items had passed.

The items - including the letter - will go back up for sale in July.

Legal reps for Lutz argued that their client was well within her rights to sell the items.

Lawyers for Madonna did not return calls for comment.
