NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Lady Gaga has purchased a number of unrecorded songs from her former manager, ahead of a planned celebrity memorabilia auction.
The singer's former manager Bob Leone had been auctioning the items, on six CDs and a DVD, some of which were autographed and contained previously unreleased songs from before the singer's Lady Gaga days were being listed at a minimum bid of $1,000 each. According to Reuters, there had been some bidding interest in the music, and the amount that Lady G paid to re-acquire the demos was no disclosed.
"She wanted to purchase them. We sent her an offer on behalf of Bob Leone. She countered and we made a deal," Peter Siegel, co-founder of GOTTA HAVE IT! Collectibles, Inc., which is running the auction told Reuters.
Lady G's media weren't' the only items to be pulled ahead of the auction, which includes about 860 pieces of celebrity-related memorabilia. Reuters reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) seized a set of John Lennon's fingerprints. The prints were on a permanent residency application card, which appears to be a document missing from official government files. The card had been offered for auction by an unnamed promoter with a 1$00,000 minimum bid. – Ian Courtney
