Tupac’s Handwritten Prison Letter Discovered, Reveals He Broke Up With Madonna Because She’s White
Back in the 90s, Tupac Shakur took the music industry by storm. Fans were completely captivated by his distinct level of intelligence, his rough and rugged persona and compelling lyrics that brought life to the untold stories about life in the hood. But, apparently, fans weren’t the only people impressed with the “California Love” rapper; lots of women were too.
In fact, many fans probably had no clue there was a time when Tupac was seeing Madonna. However, their sexual relationship was short-lived because Tupac came to a serious conclusion about their involvement. So, while in prison, he reportedly wrote a letter to the singer breaking things off. Now, the handwritten letter is going viral because of Pac’s reason for ending the relationship.
The Prison Letter:
According to TMZ, Tupac ended the relationship with Madonna because she was white. An image of the letter is now circulating online and anyone who reads it will probably see that Tupac’s stance was clear. As a black man, he wasn’t willing to jeopardize his career for the sake of a sexual relationship. Although being with a black man would not have had much of an impact on her career, he felt it could have negatively affected his.
“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 added, “But for me at least in my previous perception I felt due to my ‘image’ I would be letting down half of the people who made me what I thought I was.” Since Tupac also knew how Madonna would react to the letter, he concluded by telling her, “I never meant to hurt you.”
Praised By Fans:
With the release of the letter, Tupac has actually gained more respect from fans. Many have taken to social media with their opinions of the letter and believe it proves Tupac was as real as they come. The letter is just another reminder of how greatness can’t be replaced. However, there are “others” who argue Tupac’s decision to end the relationship was an act of racism. But despite the criticism, there’s more praise than hate.
Worth A Pretty Penny:
In addition to being praised by fans, everyone will probably have the opportunity to see what the letter is really worth when it goes up for auction over the next few weeks. It has been reported that the letter will be auctioned the week of July 19-28 at Gotta Have Rock and Roll. The bidding will start at $100,000. Since Tupac’s last letter was auctioned for a staggering $170,000 the letter to Madonna is predicted to sell for much more.
Also, Tupac’s biopic All Eyez On Me is currently in theaters everywhere.
