Unlike many of today’s black celebrities who would happily date & marry a white woman over a woman from their own race, more so a white pop star, late rapper Tupac Shakur dumped Madonna because she is white!

3 years before he died in 1996, rapper Tupac was low key involved with Madonna. However in a letter dated January 15, 1995 he explained breaking up with her because of the colour of her skin and the backlash dating her would have caused him.

In the letter obtained by TMZ and written when he was in jail, Tupac said to Madonna,

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 also apologized for breaking her heart writing,

I never meant to hurt you.

The letter will go up for auction between July 19 & 28 at Gotta Have Rock and Roll with a starting bid is $100k. The last letter written by Tupac sold for more than $170k.
