Madonna wants judge to keep personal information, wholesale halloween costumes 'embarrassing photographs' secret.Madonna's got a secret — and she wants to keep it that way.

The Material Girl's attorneys sought swimwear manufacturer China Tuesday to keep under wraps an array of "embarrassing photographs" and other personal information that have emerged since she filed suit against an online auction house.

Madonna sued Gotta Have It! in July and won a temporary wholesale swimwear order barring the auction house from putting her most private items up for bid, including worn underwear, a note from Tupac Shakur while he was in prison and love letters.

Madonna was deposed last week — and on Tuesday her attorneys asked a judge to keep secret information that emerged during the under-oath inquiry.

"This is about ... protecting only limited information and documents that are truly confidential and don't have anything to do with this case," Madonna attorney Sandra Crawshaw-Sparks said in Manhattan Supreme Court.

She added that "embarrassing photographs that are not at issue in this case" came up during the deposition and should not be made public.

Other private information included Madonna's email address, questions about former boyfriends not relevant to the case and the addresses of storage facilities where she keeps belongings, Crawshaw-Sparks said.

Madonna has blamed a former friend and art consultant, Darlene Lutz, for swiping many of the items that were to go up for bid.

Lutz's attorney, Judd Grossman, countered that Madonna was seeking to suppress information that was not favorable to her case.

"Certain information came out — not irrelevant information — information that certain statements were made in her affidavit that were not true," Grossman said.

When Madonna sued she included a sworn affidavit declaring she hadn't even realized many of the items up for auction were not in her possession — until they appeared on the Gotta Have It! website.

Judge Gerald Lebovits said he would rule on the request for secrecy in the next two days.

In July, a convicted drug dealer exclusively told the Daily News that Madonna had given him her panties in 1994 when they were dating and that they were rightfully his to sell.
