Earlier this month, a letter from the late Tupac Shakur was found ending his fling with pop artist, Madonna. The letter was supposed to go to auction starting yesterday; but, per Madonna’s emergency court order, a judge has blocked it from being put online. The starting bid for the letter? $100k.

Representatives from Gotta Have Rock and Roll have stated, “Madonna and her legal army have taken what we believe to be a completely baseless and meritless action to temporarily halt the sale of Ms. Lutz’s legal property. We believe that her intent is nothing more than to besmirch the good reputations of the auction house and Ms. Lutz. Madonna’s allegations will be vigorously challenged and refuted in a court of law in due course.”

The letter confirms the two artists had a relationship but the rapper breaks-up with the popstar while in prison because of her race. Tupac writes, “I felt due to my ‘image’ I would be letting down half of the people who made me what I thought I was. I never meant to hurt you.”

In his letter, he also discusses a disagreement the two had because of something she said during an interview about rappers and basketball players. His letter states, “You said, ‘I’m off to rehabilitate all the rappers and basketball players or something to that effect those words cut deep seeing how I had never known you to be with any other rappers besides myself. It was at this moment out of hurt and natural instinct to strike back and defend my heart and ego that I said a lot of things.” Madonna still has not spoken publicly about the letter but she’s definitely keeping this little piece of him close to her heart and off the black market.
