In a handwritten letter the rapper wrote during his final prison bid in 1995, Shakur explained why he was forced to end his blossoming relationship with Madonna.
The letter, which is slated to go on auction with a starting bid of 0,000 on July 19, was revealed publically for the first time by TMZ. In the heartfelt letter, dated January 15, 1995, at a.m., Shakur blamed their racial differences for their breakup.“For you to be seen with a black man wouldn’t in any way jeopardize your career—if anything it would make you seem that much more open and exciting,” he wrote.
However, new insight on at least one of his romantic flings has surfaced after an auction house recently received the rapper’s handwritten letter to Madonna.
It was in the early ’90s when Shakur broke off his brief romance with the singer.
However, the marriage was annulled shortly after he was released from jail.
