LONDON, Aug. 3 (UPI) -- British lawyers for Madonna are fighting to stop letters and sexy photos from being sold as the singer is trying to make her latest adoption permanent.
The 17 notes and seven Polaroids she sent in the early 1990s to then-boyfriend James Albright were sold to a company specializing in Madonna memorabilia. The company now is shopping the collection and hopes to make more than $200,000, the Daily Mail reported Friday.
The head of Malawi's child welfare service is about to spend a week with Madonna, husband Guy Ritchie and their family in London to determine whether they are fit to adopt baby David Banda permanently.
While she posed nude for her controversial coffee-table book, "Sex," the pop diva is said to be crushed about the collection's arrival on the market, the British newspaper said.
Some of the pictures, which the singer took of herself, show her in explicit poses. The collection also includes items such as underwear Madonna apparently sent to Albright during their relationship.
James Albright was Madonna's bodyguard from for seven months in 1992, after which they became romantically involved until 1994.
