But let the record show: A newly revealed letter from the rapper to the pop icon sheds new light on the reality (and depth of feeling) of their romance.Dated January 15, 1995, at a.m., the letter, published in part by TMZ, was written during Tupac’s stint in prison at the Clinton Correctional Facility.He was regarded as a rap icon and sex symbol during his short 25 years of life, but many of the relationships Shakur allegedly participated in have mostly been shrouded in rumors.However, new insight on at least one of his romantic flings has surfaced after an auction house recently received the rapper’s handwritten letter to Madonna.“I was dating Tupac Shakur at the time, and the thing is he got me all riled up on life in general,” she said.“So, when I went on the show, I was feeling very gangsta.”Despite the big reveal, many remained skeptical whether or not her relationship with Shakur was more than just a fling.According to published reports, Kidada Jones was one of the last people to have spoken to Tupac. After asking him those questions, Kidada stated that he nodded, “Yes”.
Kidada had only been dating Tupac for four months when he was suddenly taken away from her forever, left wondering what would have become of their love had things been different.Penned in an autobiography of her father Quincy Jones, Kidada stated: Kidada, who was with Tupac in Las Vegas on that fateful September night when he was gunned down, was staying in their hotel suite when she received the life-changing news. Jones and Tupac’s relationship didn’t spark the “good vibe” with everyone, Jones’s father, Quincy Jones, was outraged when he found out that the two were a couple.After rushing to the hospital, Kidada stated that she was handed Tupac’s bloody clothes and was told that Shakur had no blood pressure when he arrived. Before the hook-up, Tupac had made some harsh remarks about Quincy Jones only dating white women in which resulted in messed-up kids.It was in the early ’90s when Shakur broke off his brief romance with the singer.The musicians were seldom seen together, and it wasn’t until a 2015 interview with Howard Stern when Madonna first mentioned actually dating the rapper.
