A letter written by Tupac Shakur for Madonna could soon be up for grabs if you have thousands of dollars to spend.
The love letter, showcasing an apologetic side of the late rapper, was written by Tupac in 1995 while he was serving a prison sentence. It will go up for auction later this month.
Madonna and Tupac dated for a short time prior to his death in 1996.
“I must apologize to you,” the famed rapper wrote to the ‘Queen of Pop.’
“Because like you said I haven’t been the kind of friend I know I am capable of being. Not because I am evil or because you weren’t worthy but at the risk of sounding overdramatic, the effects of racism make it difficult for a young black man to properly show affection for an older white woman.”The “California Love” rapper went on to ominously discuss fears about his own death and warned the pop star to be safe.
“Please be careful Madonna. Everyone is not as honorable as they seem,” he wrote. “There are those whose hearts bleed with envy & evil. They would not hesitate to do you harm! Let my 5 bullets be proof of that!”
Originally, the letter was put up for auction back in 2017 by the online bidding site Gotta Have It! Collectibles, along with several of Madonna’s personal items, including underwear she’s worn and a hairbrush containing her hair, all of which allegedly went missing during her move from Miami in 2004. The letter from Tupac is just one of many other letters involving Madonna that have been auctioned off in the past.
In 2017, Madonna filed a court order to temporarily stop the sale. A New York judge dismissed the case last year by citing the statute of limitations on the items had passed. The ‘Queen of Pop’ later appealed the case, but unfortunately, it was also shot down.
The auction will begin on July 17, with a starting bid at $100,000. Madonna’s latest album, “Madame X,” was released last month.
