A breakup is never an easy thing, and it gets even harder when it's done on paper for the whole world to see.
Just ask Madonna, who filed an emergency court order to have West Coast icon Tupac's breakup letter to her returned to her possession for a simple enough (*side eye*) reason: it was allegedly stolen.
TMZ reports that on Tuesday (July 18), the Material Girl filed the order to block the letter from going up for auction on the Gotta Have Rock and Roll website. Apparently, she never knew anything about the items being taken from her, let alone an auction being underway, TMZ added from legal documents. Madonna alleges a former associate of hers, Darlene Lutz, swiped the letter from her home. Whomever it was that got grabby with Madonna’s personal items must have had a field day in her home, too, as she reportedly claims other letters from her family and close friends like comedian actress Rosie O’ Donnell were stolen and even a pair of her underwear.
TMZ added that a New York City judge recently ordered the removal of Pac’s letter from the auction site and also included Gotta Have Rock and Roll’s response to her legal moves.
"Madonna and her legal army have taken what we believe to be a completely baseless and meritless action to temporarily halt the sale of Ms. Lutz’s legal property,” the statement reportedly reads. “We believe that her intent is nothing more than to besmirch the good reputations of the auction house and Ms. Lutz. Madonna's allegations will be vigorously challenged and refuted in a court of law in due course."
We guess it’s only right that she hold on to it since it was her breakup letter…technically.
