Not many people were aware that Madonna and Tupac were a couple. However, the late rapper broke off their romance in a prison letter.

Madonna and Tupac’s relationship

Back in the 90s, Madonna dated the late rapper, Tupac Shakur. Their relationship started off with Tupac passing a note to Madonna. The pair were involved three years before he was killed.

The singer in an interview revealed they met for the first time at the Soul Train Music Awards in Los Angeles in March 1993. The former couple was introduced to each other by actress Rosie Perez. Tupac’s brother also confirmed that they both had respect for each other.

Break up letter

Sadly, things didn’t work out for the celebrity couple. The famous rapper in a letter he wrote from prison revealed why he broke off his relationship with Madonna. Tupac confessed that he left the singer because she was white.

The breakup letter was written a year before his untimely death while he was in prison back in 1995. 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.

The late rapper aware of Madonna’s devastation by the rejection also apologized in the letter saying: "I never meant to hurt you."

The letter went up for auction at Gotta Have Rock and Roll. It seems like no one has bought it yet. However, the bid for it started at $100,000 and it's reportedly expected to fetch a lot more. Tupac’s last letter was sold for more than $170,000.

Looks like their relationship wasn't meant to be. Just imagine what Madonna and Tupac's life could have been if they were together till he passed.
