Madonna’s infamous love letter from Tupac Shakur has been in limbo for years — an auction wants to sell it and she wants to block it — but it’s finally hitting the block, and all the conflict and legal threats that made headlines have inflated the value, because it’s expected to fetch a fortune.
Tupac penned the breakup letter when he was in prison, and the handwritten and signed note is going up for auction through the memorabilia company, Gotta Have Rock & Roll … and the opening bid is $100,000 … and when the gavel drops the expectation is someone’s gonna snag the letter for around $300k!!!
In his three-page breakup note, Pac confesses he broke off his sexual relationship with Madonna because she’s white.
As we’ve reported … Madonna previously filed a lawsuit against Darlene Lutz, her old pal and art consultant, to stop the sale … but a judge tossed out her suit out said a release she signed back in 2004 meant she couldn’t sue. Darlene consigned the letter to the online auction house.
The legal battle didn’t end there, because Madonna filed an appeal … but just last month she whiffed on her chance to slam the brakes on the sale of the letter.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to breastcancer.org. Darlene is a breast cancer survivor.
Bidding starts online July 17.
