Madonna's panties pulled from auction
A pair of panties worn by Madonna have been withdrawn from sale on internet auction site eBay. The black girdle-style underpants, which the pop queen sported during a raunchy sex scene in 80s movie Body of Evidence, were pulled from the sale because the website doesn't allow used underwear to be sold.
Vendor Tony Cochrane said: "After five days, we had an offer of £1 000 (about R12 000) from a buyer in the US.
"But I don't even think we can wash them and put them on sale now."
Nightclub owner Tony kept the underwear on display in his Scottish
lap-dancing club after shelling out more than £800 for the silky smalls and an autographed picture of the infamous scene they star in.
But he decided to put the lace-trimmed knickers up for sale when his Aberdeen nightspot, Private Eyes, was closed for redecoration.
He was quoted in Scotland's Daily Record newspaper as saying: "We bought the pants in 1998.
"We thought they would be good for the club, as we had a picture of Madonna wearing them.
"They fitted in with the theme of the club and our customers were thrilled to see them alongside undergarments from Striptease, Showgirls, True Lies and Baywatch."
Owner Tony has now been forced to call time on the auction and sell the underwear to a secret buyer. He added: "We have received a private offer to buy them."
