Today (June 16th), not only marks the worldwide theatrical release of the highly-anticipated biopic, All Eyez On Me, but is also what would have been Tupac‘s 46th birthday. There’s been a lot of mixed feelings about the Benny Boom-directed film and Pac’s longtime friend, Jada Pinkett Smith wasn’t a fan of how her relationship with Pac was portrayed.
Forgive me… my relationship to Pac is too precious to me for the scenes in All Eyez On Me to stand as truth.
Pac never read me that poem. I didn’t know that poem existed until it was printed in his book.
Pac never said goodbye to me before leaving for LA. He had to leave abruptly and it wasn’t to pursue his career.
I’ve never been to any of Pac’s shows by his request. We never had an argument backstage.
The reimagining of my relationship to Pac has been deeply hurtful.
To @KatGraham and @Dshippjr this is no fault of yours. Thank you for bringing so much heart and spirit to your roles.
@KatGraham @Dshippjr You both did a beautiful job with what you were given. Thank you both.
Happy birthday Pac, you are cradled in my heart for eternity. I love you.
