Madge: Get your fin­gers out of my panties!

Sunday Sport - - NEWS - By BRAD CHAD­WICK news@ sun­daysport. co. uk

QUEEN of Pop Madonna has blocked the “creepy” sale of her highly- per­sonal items – in­clud­ing a hair­brush con­tain­ing strands of hair and her USED PANTIES!

The singer, 59, is su­ing an auc­tion house in or­der to stop the sale of pre­vi­ous pos­ses­sions – which also in­clude a love let­ter to for­mer boyfriend, the late rap­per Tu­pac Shakur.

In court pa­pers, the Ma­te­rial Girl star said: “My DNA could be ex­tracted from a piece of my hair. It’s out­ra­geous and grossly of­fen­sive that my DNA could be auc­tioned for sale to the public.”

She said Gotta Have It! Collectibles in New York should not be al­lowed to sell off the 22 items at a rock themed auc­tion later this month.

Naked

The sale in­cludes a pair of panties she gave to ex Peter Shue in the 1990s.

She said: “It never oc­cured to me he would auc­tion them off.”

Other items on the auc­tion block in­clude per­sonal pho­to­graphs, un­re­leased record­ings and un­sent, “in­ti­mate love let­ters” in­volv­ing other past boyfriends.

“The fact that I have at­tained celeb sta­tus as a re­sult of suc­cess in my ca­reer does not ob­vi­ate my right to main­tain my pri­vacy, in­clud­ing with re­gard to highly per­sonal items,” she says in the suit.

Madonna con­cedes in the de­po­si­tion that she got naked for her Sex book – but the panties and hair­brush are “too in­ti­mate and per­sonal” to be sold.

“Well, it is my hair,” she tells Lutz’s lawyer, Judd Gross­man.

“It’s creepy,” she said, ac­cord­ing to a tran­script of the de­po­si­tion, done last month.

“If I pub­lish a book, that is my of­fer­ing to the world, I ac­knowl­edge that,” she says.

“I’m giv­ing that piece of art to the world.

“There’s a dif­fer­ence between that, what I of­fer to the world as an artist, and what peo­ple write to me per­son­ally and pri­vately as a hu­man be­ing.

“There’s noth­ing in Sex that had any­thing to do with my pri­vate life.”
