Les représentants de Madonna font retirer les journaux des enchères.
Journals reportedly written by Madonna have been taken down from an online auction - after the singer's representatives contacted eBay.com asking for bosses to ban the sale.
An unknown man placed 12 personal tomes allegedly written by the Material Girl between 1988 and 1992 on the website, and was hoping to garner millions of pounds for the possessions.
The eBay user alleges he bought the journals in a blind auction from a storage facility in Chatsworth, California, along with personal items including photos of the superstar, for just £100.
But the periodicals have now been taken down from eBay after Madonna's representatives convinced executives "they" were the rightful owners, reports TMZ.com.
A spokesperson for the auction website has confirmed they did cancel the listing after the singer's reps contacted them to make a claim.
But the unnamed seller is still reportedly insisting the items belong to him.
Madonna Journals -- Yanked from Online Auction

A multi-million dollar online auction for a lot of Madonna's old private journals came to a grinding halt Monday -- thanks to a last minute intervention from Madge's reps.
The mystery man behind the auction -- who claims he obtained the 12 journals and other Madge memorabilia in a blind auction -- tells TMZ, eBay removed his listing around 10AM Monday morning ... because a rep for the singer was able to convince eBay that "they" were the rightful owners.
A rep from eBay confirmed they did receive a claim from Madonna's camp and have since pulled the auction from their site.
As for the seller, he's still adamant that the stuff belongs to him. He's also pissed because he's expecting to rake in at least $2.5 million from the sale.
So far, no comment from Madonna's camp.
