Today in but-why: Madonna documentary to feature private love letters without her permission

News Agencies | Updated on: 16 August 2016, 11:32 IST

An 'intimate' upcoming documentary about Madonna's romance with a New York musician before the Material Girl was a megastar will include personal letters and recordings made by the singer 'in bed'. Albeit, without her consent.

The film, which follows Madonna's relationship with fellow singer Dan Gilroy, will include private tapes of 'bedroom talk' that she made while in the bed with Dan, reports pagesix.com.

Dan, who dated Madonna for around 18 months beginning in 1979, has given over hours of video and stacks of letters and photographs to director Guy Guido for the project.

The documentary Emmy and the Breakfast Club -- which includes 're-enactments' as well as interviews -- focuses on the period from 1979 to 1982, immediately before Madonna became famous, while she was living in an abandoned synagogue in Corona, Queens, with Dan and his brother, Ed Gilroy.

"The in-the-works film is set to reveal everything from 'sweet little love notes that she would leave for Dan' to 'very poetic love letters expressing her feelings for him and the struggles of their relationship'," Guido said.

A 20-minute recording the couple made in bed captures the pair "having fun with each other and bedroom talk, and also getting into a little philosophical life discussion".

The decision to release such personal material without Madonna's consent wasn't taken lightly.

"There are some intimate things, but at this point they're ready to share. Especially Dan, he's been holding this in a very long time," Guido said.

Guido hopes to finish working on the film by January 2017, and that a major distributor will release it.
