Now Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Gerald Lebovits has ruled in Lutz's favor, declaring Madonna waited too long to try and reclaim the pieces of memorabilia.
The American rapper and actor wrote a handwritten letter from prison, which explained that he broke up with Madonna because she was white.
Madonna had just three years under NY state law to recover a trove of "highly personal items" that went missing after she moved out of her Miami home around 2004.
"For you to be seen with a Black man wouldn't in any way jeopardize your career". "But for me at least in my previous perception I felt due to my "image" I would be letting down half of the people who made me what I thought I was".
Madonna had no idea that Lutz had letters ownership, which Tupac wrote a year before his death in 1995. she heard about the online auction last year.
Madonna previously insisted her love letter shouldn't be sold because it was "intensely personal". I never gave this letter away.
The letter, which can be read in part here, contained musings from the late rap legend about the circumstances of the once power couple's breakup. "Yet before this auction began, the plaintiff did not make any demand to return her possessions".
"The fact that I have attained celebrity 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", Madonna said in court papers. Lutz's lawyer, Judd Grossman, called the decision "a total win", saying: "Ms Lutz is now free to do with her property as she pleases without any continued interference by Madonna". She recalled the pair becoming friendly in the downtown Manhattan art scene of the early 1980s, and said that she realized early on "that everything that came into contact with Madonna could be important".
If you've still got your cash saved up from the last time the letter was briefly up for sale, you'll have another chance to put down a bid when the letter goes back up for sale in July.
