Tupac's break-up letter to Madonna being auctioned

Tupac Shakur's infamous jailhouse break-up letter to Madonna is going to be auctioned, despite the singer's objections. 
 
Gotta Have Rock and Roll obtained the letter from the singer's former art consultant, Darlene Lutz, and plans to auction it off to the highest bidder on July 17.
 
The pop star claimed ownership of the three-page letter but she legally transferred it to Lutz about 15 years ago.
 
Shakur hand-wrote the three-page letter from prison in 1995 when he was 24; Madonna was 37 at the time. 
 
In it, the rap icon explains why the two of them are no longer a good look and apologised for the breakup saying: "The effects of racism make it difficult for a young black man to properly show affection for an older white woman."
 
The memorabilia company estimates the letter will sell for up to $300,000. 
 
The minimum bid is $100,000.
 
Partial proceeds from the sale will go to BreastCancer.org.
