Madonna revealed she secretly dated Tupac before his passing and now more details are emerging about their relationship.
In a letter Tupac penned while at Clinton Correctional Facility, where he was serving time on sexual assault charges, he apologized for Madonna for the demise of their relationship.
According to TMZ, Tupac wrote that race and other’s people opinions of himself were a big factor in 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. 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,” he wrote.
Tupac also apologized many times within the letter, saying her “never meant to hurt” Madonna and wanted to tell her “in case anything happened” to him.
He added that it no longer mattered how he was perceived and asked for her friendship.
The full letter will be auctioned by Gotta Have Rock and Roll later this month and is expected to sell for over $100,000.
