EntertainmentMadonna's Tupac jailhouse break-up letter will be sold
Madonna's ticket sales for upcoming tour are reportedly lagging
Madonna hasn't been selling out intimate arenas like her team thought.
Tupac Shakur's infamous break-up letter to Madonna is going to be auctioned off, the New York Supreme Court ruled, stating the letter now belongs to the auction company Gotta Have Rock and Roll and not the pop icon despite her protestations.
The company obtained the letter from Madonna's former art consultant Darlene Lutz andto the highest bidder on July 17.
Although Madonna argued the letter belonged to her, she legally transferred it to Lutz before 2004, according tolast month that was made available online Wednesday. As a result of the transfer, Lutz owns the letter and can sell it.
Madonna’s Promoter Combats NY Post’s ‘Absolute Lies’ About ‘Sluggish’ Ticket Sales
Have Madonna’s fortunes fallen so far that she’s “struggling” to fill small halls in the biggest cities in the world now? Yes, if you believe the New York Post. Naturally, her promoter begs to differ, and is differing loudly in an interview he did with Pollstar to combat the newspaper’s piece on allegedly weak ticket sales. “Madonna’s upcoming tour tarnished by sluggish ticket sales,” read the headline on the story that appeared in the Post’s Page Six section Tuesday. “Four years ago, Madonna was selling out shows at Madison Square Garden.
Shakur hand-wrote the three-page letter from prison in 1995 when he was 24. In it, he ends his relationship with Madonna, who was 37 at the time. He died the next year.
“I must apologize to you," he wrote. "Because like you said I haven’t been the kind of friend I know I am capable of being. Not because I am evil or because you weren’t worthy but at the risk of sounding over dramatic, the effects of racism make it difficult for a young black man to properly show affection for an older white woman.”
The memorabilia company estimates the letter will sell for up to $300,000. The minimum bid is $100,000.
