Any bids for — a shot of Tu­pac’s pe­nis?

The Jakarta Post - - HEADLINES -

NEW YORK: Look­ing for a spe­cial hol­i­day gift for a fan of rap le­gend Tu­pac Shakur? Now avail­able to the high­est bid­der — a pic­ture of his pe­nis.

In one of the more bizarre items in a rash of Tu­pac mem­o­ra­bilia to go on sale in re­cent years, an auc­tion house is sell­ing a close-up of his mem­ber snapped in 1990. An un­named fe­male com­pan­ion of Tu­pac, who would be shot dead six years later, said the then up-and-com­ing rap­per was fond of drop­ping his trousers at par­ties.

“On this par­tic­u­lar night, when a friend was about to take [a] group shot, he did it again! She told him that she was go­ing to zoom in if he didn’t pull his pants up fast, but he just smiled at her and didn’t budge,” said the post­ing on auc­tion site Gotta Have Rock and Roll.

She asked for US$7,500 for the pic­ture but did not re­ceive that much in an ini­tial round of bid­ding. The sale comes as the same auc­tion house is em­broiled in a le­gal fight over its sale of in­ti­mate items from Madonna, in­clud­ing her un­der­wear and a breakup let­ter from Tu­pac, who dated the pop su­per­star late in his life. A judge halted the auc­tion af­ter Madonna charged that it in­vaded her pri­vacy. Most of the items came from an art dealer who helped her pack a house and later fell out with the singer. — AFP
