Tupac Shakur letter reveals why he broke up with Madonna | abc7.com – “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. “I never meant to hurt you.”
Parts of the letter have been blurred out.
“An interview where you said ‘I’m off to rehabilitate all the rappers & basketball players’ or something to that effect … cut me deep,” he added. “I had never known you to be with any rapper besides myself,” the letter read.
It ends with, “I don’t know how you feel about visiting me, but if you could find it in your heart I would love to speak face to face with you.”
Shakur died in 1996.
