Tupac’s Eggplant Photo Goes Up For Sale At Auction & Faith Evans Isn’t Here For It
For years, prized possessions of celebrities have sold for thousands of dollars at auctions. From signature clothing like Michael Jackson’s glitter grove to Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling’s chair which sold for a whopping $394,000, there have been some amazing items sold and a few weird ones. But the latest weird auction item has caught the attention of rap fans everywhere. Apparently, a never-before-seen nude photo of Tupac Shakur has surfaced and it’s being sold at the Gotta Have Rock and Roll auction house. The starting bid for the auction item is $15,000. So far, no one has bid on the item and there may be a reason for that. Most Tupac fans are wondering if the photo is really authentic.
Real Or Nah?:
Since Tupac died more than 20 years ago, many fans are wondering why it took so long for the photo to surface. This raises questions about whether or not the photo is real. However, according to TMZ, one of Tupac’s ex-girlfriends – who has opted to remain anonymous, claims the photo is authentic. In fact, she’s even shared details about the house party that led to the photo.
“This nude photograph of Tupac was taken in 1990 at a house party in Marin County. Always the showman (and jokester!) Tupac would, on occasion, drop his pants when least expected and catch his friends by surprise,” she said. “On this particular night, when my camera was about to go off taking a group shot, he did it again! I told him I was going to zoom in if he didn’t move fast and yank his pants up, but he just grinned at me and didn’t budge. Flash! These singular photos capture the playful, spontaneous and uninhibited side of Tupac.”
Here’s the photo in question:
Not Here For It:
Following reports about the photo auction, TMZ reporters ran into Faith Evans at LAX on Wednesday, Nov. 22. When asked about the Tupac photo being auctioned, Faith Evans had no reservations about sharing her opinion. She made her disapproval very clear.
