Madonna's love letter from Tupac is set to go under the hammer next week - and is expected to fetch up to £239k ($300k).

The love letter, which was written by Tupac during his 1995 prison sentence, will go up for auction later this month, and showcases an apologetic side of the late rapper.

With a minimum starting bid of $100,000, reps for the Gotta Have It! estimate the letter will sell for as much as $300,000 when it's auctioned online next week. Madonna had been attempting to dam the deal, however an public sale needed to promote it. Tupac wrote the letter whereas he was in jail and it additionally incorporates his signature. Lutz, a breast cancer survivor, will donate a portion of the proceeds breastcancer.org. The couple dated briefly prior to his death in 1996.

It looks like the letter was a form of closure for both stars as he wrote: "I've waited a long time to finally write this". First and foremost, I must apologize to you because like you said I haven't been the kind of friend I know I am capable of being.

"It no longer matters how I'm perceived. Please understand my previous position as that of a young man with limited experience with an extremely famous sex symbol".

"I offer my friendship once again, this time much stronger and focused". I felt compelled to tell you.just in case anything happened 2 me.

Shakur died the following year.

Madonna claimed Lutz had, "betrayed my trust in an outrageous effort to obtain my possessions without my knowledge or consent". Lutz had previously tried to sell the items, but the singer took her to court, insisting her celebrity stature "does not obviate my right to maintain my privacy, including with regard to highly personal items".

However, because she signed a release way back in 2004, Madonna reportedly couldn't sue over the letter's sale.
