Justice Gerald Lebovits set a full hearing for 6 September, banning auction house Gotta Have Rock and Roll from holding a sale in the meantime.

American Pop star and acclaimed Guinness world record holder, Madonna, has ordered that court stops the auction of properties belonging to her, including a letter written to her by her late lover,  Tupac wrote to her while he was in prison.

Madonna said she got to know about the auction through a media source and then filed a suit with a New York court a day before auction house Gotta Have Rock and Roll was set to start taking bids for over 100 items and including the breakup letter her late lover wrote her.

According to reports gathered from BBC, it was said that the deal will cost a total of $400,000.

Madonna had said the property meant to be auctioned was in possession of former friend Darlene Lutz who also is an art dealer.

There was also a reaction from the auction house. They said Madonna’s attempt to halt the process of sales of the house and other items in it is baseless. The auction house also said; “her intent is nothing more than to besmirch the good reputations of the auction house and Ms Lutz”.

The breakup letter written (from late Tupac to Madonna) might have triggered Madonna’s fury to wanting to halt the auction process so as to maintain her privacy.

The breakup letter reads in part.

“For you to be seen with a black man wouldn’t in any way jeopardize your career – 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.”

In a court document released, Madonna had alleged that Ms Lutz “betrayed my trust in an outrageous effort to obtain my possessions without my knowledge or consent.”
