Apparently, Tupac’s Relationship With Madonna Started With The Passing Of A Note...

According to Tupac's brother, this is how his relationship with Madonna started...

When Madonna revealed earlier this year that she dated Tupac, a few eyebrows were raised. During an interview with Howard Stern, the mega pop star recalled her courtship with the late great rapper as one that made her feel “gangster.” Now, ‘Pac’s brother, Mopreme Shakur, is vouching for the 56-year-old singer.

“One time I was mad at [Letterman] when I said the f-word a lot, but the rest of the time was good,” Madonna told Stern in March. “I was in a weird mood that day. I was dating Tupac Shakur at the time, and he had got me all riled up about life in general. So when I went on the show I was feeling very gangster.”

In a recent interview with Vlad TV, Shakur recalled the day ‘Pac and Madonna hit things off. Detailing a New York press day for the film Above The Rim, the rapper’s brother recalls the singer handing off a note. Apparently, the rest was history.

“She gave me a note to give to him,” he said. “[I didn't read it,] I was just happy she was giving him a note. Everybody was there, I went over and gave it to him. He was about the business and then they linked up. I would take him to her house and s**t when we got back to L.A. Yeah. They were a thing for a minute.”

At the height of their popularity, Shakur aptly describing the pair as “off the chain,” noting the combination as “too much.” While he did not reveal whether the relationship was strictly physical, ‘Pac’s brother did confirm that the two shared a mutual respect and that things ended between Madonna and Tupac on a positive note.

”They were kicking it,” he said. “I don’t think it was super serious, gonna get married or some s**t. You know how those entertainment relationships go,” he said. “But they both respected each other, so it ended cool. He never talked s**t about her, not to me. And she never talked s**t about him.”

Amber Guyger Takes Step To Appeal Murder Conviction: Report

Amber Guyger is taking preliminary steps to appeal her conviction in the murder of Botham Jean.

An attorney for the former Dallas police officer filed an intent to appeal her first-degree murder conviction and 10-year prison sentence, nearly two weeks after the verdict was handed down. Though the filing was publicized on Tuesday (Oct. 22), Guyger’s lawyer, Michael Mowla, reportedly filed on Oct. 16.

It’s unclear what Guyger will use as grounds for a potential appeal.

Earlier in the month, a Texas jury convicted Guyger of first-degree murder and sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Guyger shot and killed Jean, her 26-year-old neighbor, in his home last year. Guyger maintained that she walked into Jean’s apartment thinking it was her unit, and subsequently killed the unarmed accountant out of fear that he was an introducer.

Her reported notice of appeal comes amid legal strife involving Dallas County District Attorney John Creuzot, and trial Judge Tammy Kemp. Creuzot, who is facing contempt charges for doing an interview that aired the night before Guyger's trial began, requested that Kemp be removed from  his case. Meanwhile, Kemp has come under fire after she hugged Guyger in court, and handed her a Bible. Kemp defended her actions, noting that Guyger asked for a hug after the sentencing phase was over. Kemp wasn’t alone in embracing Guyger, Jean’s brother hugged her as well.

A hearing in the contempt case is scheduled for Oct. 31.
