Earlier this year, Madonna confirmed she once dated rap icon Tupac Shakur, after over a decade of speculation. Now Pac's brother Mopreme Shakur is backing up the singer's claims in a new interview where he details some of the two music legends' encounters. Speaking with DJ Vlad, Shakur recalled an encounter he had with the pop maven back in the mid '90s when she came to see the rapper on the set of Above The Rim, and said the two entertainers' relationship kicked off from there.

"[Madonna] 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 and gave it to him. He was about the business and then they linked up and I would take him to her house and shit when we got back to L.A. Yeah. They were a thing for a minute."

According to 'Preme, they were an item, but things never got too serious between the Pac and the Queen of Pop."They were kicking it," he said. "I don't think it was super serious, gonna get married or some shit. You know how those entertainment relationships go. They both respected each other, so it ended cool."

He also confirmed that Janet Jackson asked Tupac to take an AIDS test before a kissing scene in Poetic Justice, which was another story that has been running around Hollywood for years. Tupac's answer to the request was hilarious.
