Most people are aware that Jada Pinkett-Smith and Tupac shared a special relationship. Over the years, Jada has shared aspects of that relationship with the public from time to time, but the actress says the way she and Pac were portrayed in All Eyez on Me does not do either of them any justice.
As you know, All Eyez on Me hit theaters worldwide today on the birthday of the late rapper. And upon seeing the film, Jada had some harsh truths to expose about the biopic which she shared on Facebook and Twitter.
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 Kat and Demetrius this is no fault of yours. Thank for bringing so much heart and spirit to your roles. 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.
While neither Kat Graham, who plays Jada in the movie, and Demetrius Shipp Jr., who took on the role of the Pac have yet to address the tweets, fans responses to Jada’s message were mixed, with many questioning why the movie was made without her input and others declaring they still plan to see the film.
Jada is alive and thriving yet no one consulted her about the #AllEyezOnMe movie? And they got the story wrong? pic.twitter.com/BblFAnFaNH
