Tupac To Madonna: Being with a white woman may jeopardize my career.
A personal letter penned by the late Tupac, to Madonna has been released. For years, it has been rumored that the pair had some type of relationship. And this letter, which goes on auction this month, may confirm this. Written while he was in prison, Tupac appears to end their romantic relationship because of her race. He writes,
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. 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. I never meant to hurt you.
He also hints that some type of disagreement happened between the two, over something that Madonna said about rappers and basketball players in an interview.
An interview where you said, ‘I’m off to rehabilitate all the rappers and basketball players’ or something to that affect those words cut deep seeing how I had never known you to be with any other rappers besides myself. It was at this moment out of hurt and natural instinct to strike back and defend my heart and ego that I said a lot of things.
‘Pac says that he still wants to be friends,
I offer my friendship once again this time much stronger and focused. If you are still interested I would like to further discuss this with you but some of it couldn’t wait. I felt compelled to tell you … just in case anything happened.
He also warns,
Please be careful Madonna. Everyone is not as honorable as they seem. There are those whose hearts bleed with envy and evil. They would not hesitate to do you harm! Let my 5 bullets be proof of that!
Reportedly, the starting bid for the letter begins at $100k, with the auction taking place July 19-28.
