| Madonna begged Tupac Shakur to have a child |
Madonna begged Tupac Shakur to have a child with her, it has been claimed.
The 'Hung Up' singer is said to have briefly dated the rapper a year before his death in 1996, and was desperate to start a family with him.
Lucy O'Brien claims in her new book 'Madonna: Like an Icon': "In her mid-30s Madonna desperately wanted children and had various relationships with unlikely men, in the hope she would conceive."
But Madonna, now 49, was allegedly dumped by Tupac for not fitting in with his bad boy rapper image.
The 'Music' singer's friend Alison Clarkson claimed: "She was going out with him but homegirls were saying to him, 'I can't believe you're going out with a white girl,' so she got dumped!"
