Madonna’s Love Letters to be Auctioned - Starting Bid $3,000
The Rock and Roll Pop Auction is putting some of Madonna’s private possessions up for bid. Some of the items are meant to provide the intimate details of the icon`s long-ago relationship with ex-boyfriend James Albright. On the market are two microcassette tapes of messages that the singer left in Albright`s answering machine, and 21 love letters that she sent him via fax from various hotels around the world, according to the New York Post. The seller of these items remains unknown.
Among the very personal artifacts up for grabs are love letters Madge had written to ex-boyfriend James Albright, whom she dated in the '80s, and a never-before-seen video tape of an extended scene from her flick Dangerous Game. The 15 minute long scene is a scene where "Madonna appears to snort cocaine, inhale nitrous oxide and expose her breasts while allowing Russo to snort cocaine off her body."
The letters include nicknames she had for herself, which included ‘Lil Booty’ and ‘Lol Montez’, and those she used for Albright, like ‘Booty’, ‘Caesar’ and ‘Sambo’.
Bidding on the microcassettes starts at $25,000. The letters can be had for $3,000 while the VHS tape starts at $10,000. Neither the audiotapes nor the video come with copyright, meaning a new owner won't be able to resell the tapes.
