Written in Janauary 1995, when the rapper was in jail, according to TMZ the love letter said:

"For you to be seen with a black man wouldn't in any way jeopardise your career, if anything it would make you seem 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 rapper later added one of his less original lines: "I never meant to hurt you."

At the time Madonna was still one of the biggest pop stars in the world. They were together between 1993 and 1995 after they were introduced at a press conference for Above the Rim.

Tupac's letter, which also explained how he felt 'cut deep' by Madonna's public suggestion she'd 'been with other rappers', is being auctioned for the hefty starting price of $100,000 (£77,363).
