Celebrity News: Tupac Shakur, an American rapper who was murdered in 1996, put an end to his discreet romance with Madonna because he feared that a relationship with pop superstar would hurt his image, reveals one of his letters that have just come to light.
In this letter, dated January 1995 and to be put up for sale at the end of July by an American auction house, Tupac tells the singer: ” I never meant to hurt you.”
“For you to be seen with a black man wouldn’t in any way jeopardise your career, if anything it would make you seem more open and exciting”. Wrote Tupac Shakur carefully on a scratched paper.
“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”
In her letter she confided to Madonna, who did not reveal this relationship until 2015, she had read an interview in which she stated: “I am in favor of reinserting society to all rappers and basketball players, or anything in that sense”.
“Those words actually hurt me,” he confided.
The letter, whose existence was revealed by the US site dedicated to the celebrities TMZ, is part of the articles proposed at an auction of the Gotta Have Rock and Roll House that will take place from July 19.
Shortly after his breakup with Madonna, Tupac Shakur was jailed for sexual assault allegations he denied.
He left prison with an even more affirmed image of the king of the rap gangsta and the following year was assassinated of a shot, to the 25 years, in circumstances that remain in the mystery today.
For two decades there was no mention of the relationship between Madonna, 58, and Tupac Shakur, but in 2015 the singer spoke openly about the subject to justify an appearance in 1994 on a famous American television program by David Letterman.
At the time of his death, Tupac Shakur was engaged to the American designer Kidada Jones.
