The Internal Revenue Service has canceled a planned auction of rap singer Young Buck’s valuables after his attorney filed suit to stop the sale of the property seized from his client’s home during a raid last August.

The auction had been scheduled for Thursday after an open house on Wednesday (see IRS to Auction off Rapper Young Buck’s Valuables). Among the items up for bid were a poster from the Al Pacino movie “Scarface,” a diamond wristwatch, Royal Copenhagen bear figurines, a gold necklace and medallion, a snakeskin purse, faux fur coats, and LCD and plasma TVs.

The IRS claimed the rapper, whose real name is David Darnell Brown, owed over $300,000 in delinquent taxes from 2006-2008, and that he failed to make payments after he was notified three times about the tax debts.

Brown’s attorney said in a court filing that the IRS raid had caused stress with Brown’s family and children, and hindered his ability to pay his tax debts, according to The Tennessean. The property also needed to be returned to the rapper for his “peace of mind to maintain calmness in order to stimulate the creative juices.”

Brown announced the change in plans on Twitter: “Sorry PEOPLE. There will be no AUCTION of my STUFF tomorrow. Lol!! TRY AGAIN, HUH???”
