A sextape involving the late Tupac Shakur was sold to a private collector, according to TMZ, although for how much exactly it was sold for is unknown. The tape dated back to 1991, and the background music alone, which was an unreleased, original Tupac song, had reached a bidding price of $1,000,000.
However, a rep for Tupac's estate says that if the sextape ever surfaces they will not hesitate to sue, so the chances of it getting out are slim. Supposedly any party who would make the clip public was excluded from the sale.
Tupac's former manager, Leila Steinberg spoke on the recent selling of the tape, saying, “he taped a lot. He taped intimate moments that maybe were for himself that he never thought would be public.” The tape sold shows Tupac receiving oral sex from a female and an appearance from Digital Underground's Money B.
Steinberg also said, “I’m sure that he documented and recorded way more than anyone will ever know.,” she said, “So that’s why we’ll continue to see things that pop up.”
“I don’t know which tape this is, and who’s consenting, but I think that anyone that’s portrayed should get something from it and should be consenting,” she continued. “I don’t think that ‘Pac taped and didn’t have an understanding that anything you tape can one day become public. I’m sure that there would not be anything exploited that wasn’t agreed upon by the estate. They’re pretty powerful and in control of what gets released and approved, so I would think that they were involved.”
“His number one priority over sex tapes, over personal gratification, more than anything else, was to bring light and attention to really transitioning the state of economics in this country,” she said. “And that he’d be a vessel and a vehicle to change things and to see balance on the planet.”
