Tupac admitted that he ended his secret relationship with Madonna because of their different cultures in a revealing letter going up for auction.
The rapper, who dated Madonna for three years before he died in 1996, opened up to the singer in a personal letter written from jail.
"For you to be seen with a black man wouldn't in any way jeopardize your career,” he confessed.
“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."
Tupac later tells Madonna “I never meant to hurt you,” before further explaining his actions.
“As you can see I have grown both spiritually and mentally. It no longer matters how I’m perceived.
“Please understand my previous position as that of a young man with limited experience with a extremely famous sex symbol.”
“I offer my friendship once again time this time much stronger and focused. If you are still interested I would like to further discuss this with you but some it couldn’t wait.
“I felt compelled to tell you… just in case anything happened to 2 me.”
