Last year Madonna obtained a temporary injunction to block the sale of her one-time possessions - which also included an old hairbrush complete with hair and a pair of the star's trousers - which had been put up for sale by her former friend Darlene Lutz.
In the emotional break-up letter dated January 15, 1995, Tupac said that dating a black man could only help her career, while being with a white woman could harm his. In a recent interview, Madonna revealed about her relationship with Tupac in public.
The singer and Ms Lutz had already settled down a legal dispute over artwork auction back in 2003 and she had signed a release from "any and all" future claims against Tupac. "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 claims she didn't know the items were not in her possession until she saw the auction news.
The auction contains a second letter, sent from Madonna to "J", in which she describes Whitney Houston and Sharon Stone as "horribly mediocre". "Yet before this action began, the plaintiff did not make any demand to return her possessions", reports the NY Daily News. I never gave this letter away.More news: Russia: UN permit holding up chemical weapons probe in Syria
She also said: "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".
Whilst Gotta Have It! online auction house co-owner Ed Kosinski added: "It's a clear-cut victory for us".
Madonna is yet to comment on the ruling.
Last year, Tupac's breakup letter went up for auction and Madge tried to block the sale with a lawsuit.
Legal reps for Lutz argued that their client was well within her rights to sell the items.
