Upon losing a bid to stop the auction of Tupac’s breakup letter to Madonna back in 1995, the letter has been made public.
Madonna had tried to stop her former friend, Darlene Lutz from selling her personal items in an auction, but had failed. See details.
In the handwritten letter dated 15 January, 1995 the rapper says his image would suffer by dating a white woman.
“Can u understand that?” he wrote. “For you to be seen with a black man wouldn’t in any way jeopardise your career. If anything it would make you seem that much more open & 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.”
Tupac, one of the best selling music artists of all time, also expressed his discomfort with an interview in which Madonna said: “I’m off to rehabilitate all the rappers and basketball players.”
