One of the most anticipated movies of all times, All Eyes On Me, is in theaters today. The Tupac biopic details his personal and public life as a rapper. One of his close friends, Jada Pinkett, was portrayed in the film, as they had been friends since their ‘School Of The Arts’ days. However, Jada isn’t too happy about how their relationship was portrayed in the film.
Jada Pinkett-Smith logged onto Twitter and Facebook to sound off on her protrayal in the film. She writes, “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.”
Now that Jada has spoken out about the film, would this stop you from seeing it?
