Britney Spears' jewel-encrusted bra has been removed for a second time from Internet auction site eBay -- this time by the pop singer herself
Those who are hoping to take Britney Spears' jewel-encrusted bra home will be sorely disappointed. The pop superstar has removed the bra, one of dozens of personal items she put up for bid on eBay to raise money for victims of Hurricane Katrina, from the site after it previously had been pulled by an eBay staffer for it was considered to violate the Web site's policy of not selling used underwear. However, the decision was reversed because the bra fit under the category of memorabilia.
About the second removal, Spears posted a message on her Web site on Saturday saying "Concerned that some of you might be confusing this bra with something that it's not." The singer claimed to have worn the bra during a promotion for an HBO concert special, but "it is not the one I wore onstage during the 'Baby One More Time' performance. I feel the correct thing to do is remove this item from the auction because I don't want any of you to feel misled," she said.
Apart, the auction concluded with a "I Have the Golden Ticket" tank top going for $1,200, her ottoman selling for $510, her Chanel high heels for $770, her two-piece sectional sofa for $3,050 and her red-tab jeans for $4,001.
