The letter is usually part of a block of personal items via Madonna being auctioned by Gotta Have Rock as well as Roll. The company obtained the items via Darlene Lutz, a former friend as well as consultant to the singer.
In 2017, bidding on the letter had reached $100,000, yet Madonna had filed an emergency court order over the auction as well as won a temporary block on the sale. She told a brand-new York City court her stardom “does not obviate my right to maintain my privacy, including with regard to highly personal items.”
The Manhattan Supreme Court later ruled the items were today property of the auction company, which opened the path for their sale.
The auction will open on July 17.
