Cher - Cher Unaware Of Auction Selling Off Key To City Of Adelaide

Pop superstar Cher is vowing to "get to the bottom" of an online auction offering up her key to the city of Adelaide, Australia honour after coming under fire from local officials opposed to the sale.
The Believe hitmaker was handed the freedom of Adelaide in 1990 after performing at the city's Formula One Grand Prix, but the award and its memorial plaque has since found its way on to eBay.com - prompting the mayor who presented the accolade to Cher to take aim at her.
Steve Condous said, "I think that's pretty poor. I'm disappointed. I would have thought that getting the key to a city like Adelaide would have had some value to her, but obviously it doesn't because she wouldn't have got rid of it (sic)... If she didn't want to keep it she should have returned it back to the city."
But Cher insists she had no idea about the sale and she suspects a member of her team put the item up for auction without her permission.
After being quizzed about the auction by a fan on Twitter.com, she replies, "Im upset 2 & trying 2get2 bottom (sic)! I Think my office fkd (f**ked) up?"
The key, which is being sold by a California-based user named authentic_cher, had attracted 149 bids and had reached $95,700 (£59,813) as WENN went to press.
