What Happened To Tupac’s Wife After His Death?

Have you seen the Tupac movie All Eyez On Me yet?

There has been much controversy surrounding certain details of the film. One thing omitted from the movie is the hip hop legend’s personal life.

If you didn’t know already Pac was married. The union ended in annulment, but his bride maintains the rapper shaped her into the woman she is today.

Keisha Morris was only 20 years old when she met Tupac Shakur in 1994. She revealed to XXL magazine that they met at a club called Capitol in New York.

Nothing happened at their initial meeting with the pair speaking about Pac’s various legal woes.

But Tupac was very taken by her.

According to Morris after they parted, Tupac told her he spent the next month going to different clubs hoping to bump in to her.

After they saw each other again, Tupac invited her to his hotel room. But Keisha flatly turned him down.

But the rapper was persistent.

He gave Keisha his number and as she didn’t have a mobile she gave him her house number.

“The next day, I had to go work…and he called me when I got home. I was in shock! We started talking from that day on,” Morris said.

While the two were dating, Morris worked as a camp counselor. She also attended John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York.

But their blossoming romance stalled in 1993, when Tupac was convicted of first-degree sexual assault. He was sentenced to 1.5 to 4.5 years in prison.

He claimed his innocence all along.

Tupac began his prison sentence on February 14, 1995, Valentine’s Day. Before he started his sentence, he asked Morris for her hand in marriage.

Keisha says Tupac told her, “I don’t want you saying you’re my girlfriend. I want people to take you seriously and let them know that you’re my wife.”

The two tied the knot on April 29, 1995 while Tupac was incarcerated in the Clinton Correctional Facility in upstate New York.

But the youngster faced criticizm for dating Tupac after he was essentially convicted of rape.

“I don’t know (what happened). I wasn’t in the room,” Morris said about Pac’s sexual assault case.

“I was nowhere around. I know he stated that he didn’t have anything to do with it,” she revealed. “I didn’t wanna see him go to jail for something he said he didn’t do.”

But she also admits being so young influenced her decisions at the time.

“That kind of thing is tough on everybody. I didn’t know what to believe. I was 20 years old,” Morris said.

“I didn’t know what was going on. You know, of course my parents didn’t want me to be involved with anything like that. Being a good girl, you don’t know. It’s excitement. That taught me lessons. Would I do it again now? Absolutely not. But at the time, you’re young, you don’t know.”

While in prison, Tupac wanted to have daily visits from his wife.

“His thing was he wanted a visit every day, so he could get outta that cell,” she recalled. “It was hard. It was such a dramatic process, like, Oh, my God. I dreaded to do it. But, you know, I did it. If I wasn’t able to be there, I would make sure that someone else was there.”

Tupac would only end up serving ten months in jail. He was released on October 12, 1995.

For Morris, she thought they were going to start a new life together.

“I thought that things were changing, that he changed,” she admitted to the magazine.

“Things were getting very different once he got bail, and I felt like I wasn’t needed anymore. It wasn’t a good feeling,” she recalled.

“Like, okay, of course you don’t know from being so young. But I just felt like, Wow, okay, it was over. Like, Okay, I don’t need you anymore. I’m getting out. That’s it.”

After soon after Tupac was released from prison, he had the marriage annulled.

But he still kept in charge with his former wife.

“He would still call me and leave messages and say, ‘Listen to this song,’ or ‘How are you? It’s Tupac,'” Morris remembered.

“So he always kept me, like, ‘It’s gonna be all right.’ I remember him specifically saying, ‘You don’t understand now, but you’ll understand later,’ because he always had this notion that we were gonna get back together,” Morris added.

“I remember him telling me he didn’t want to damage me,” she said of her conversations with the famous rapper.

“He didn’t want me to get hurt in any of whatever was going on with him, so he’d rather leave me alone. Was I hurt? Absolutely. Did I feel like I was used? Absolutely,” Morris acknowledged.

Morris also fiercely denies using Tupac for fame. She says she moved close to the prison Tupac was held in.

She admitted she “basically stopped my life when he was in jail.”

She sent him almost ‘daily packages’, revolving her life around him and what his needs were.”

When Tupac was released from prison, Morris was on vacation in California.

She flew back right away but to her surprise “a member of his family came and said, ‘We’ll take his stuff.

“You had your 15 minutes of fame. Now we’ll take over from here.’ I couldn’t even express to you the pain.”

Then on September 7, 1996, Tupac attended the Bruce Seldon vs. Mike Tyson fight with Suge Knight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

There was a brawl between Tupac’s group and Crips alleged gang members that night. By 11:15 p.m.

Tupac and Knight were stopped at a red light when a car pulled beside them and shot the rapper four times.

He died on September 13, 1996, from internal bleeding.

Keisha only saw the rapper a couple of days before he was murdered.

Keisha says she tried to keep her distance from the Pac after the annulment. But he always called her when he was in New York, telling her, “You will always be Mrs. Shakur.”

‘Mrs. Shakur’ is now a mother of two who went on to earn her master’s degree.

  1. No-one cares about you Keisha. Stop trynna come up off tupac name. If he really wanted to be with you he would of stood married to you. You was just a booty call during his incarceration. Goodbye, Felicia. And keep tupac out your mouth

  2. Tupac loved her with all his heart when it came to family and very close friends then he would do anything to protect them, i met him at one of his last concerts all i could say is that he loved his fans just like he loved his family and friends
    r.i.p 🙁

  3. I believed Tupac loved Keisha. Tupac loved deeply (from all I’ve read and heard). And, because of people like Tazzy (above), Keisha would have been in danger all the time. With all the groupies who wanted to get next to Tupac, and all the certifiably crazy women/stalkers, Keisha would have been in constant, certain danger. I believe it would have been different if Keisha had been a high school sweetheart or someone who dated Tupac before he became famous, she would have been more accepted as his wife. It might have been more like the relationships of Ice Cube and Snoop and their wives. I think their wives are more accepted by their fans because they’ve been always there. Now that’s not to say that there aren’t jealous women and groupies that still want to hook up and try to break up their marriages. ‘Mr. I Get Around’ seemed to always make it clear, thru his music, that anyone fine enough had an opportunity to spend some time with him. Add that with the fact that he was internationally famous and had a cult following, any woman who was new on the scene, would likely have had a huge target on her back… Add to this all the jealous guys/rappers, and serious thug criminals, she might have been with him when someone wanted to take a shot at him. Tupac knew that. Tupac knew that all the ones who wanted to harm him financially, likely would have harmed her also. I believe that is why he called their marriage off. He may have genuinely wanted to remarry her after he settled things with Death Row & Suge, and cooled his ‘white hot’ persona. There’s nothing wrong with Keisha telling her story and expressing her feelings regarding their relationship. It doesn’t have to be that she is trying to exploit his fame for a ‘come up’…

  4. I didn’t intend to make such a long post above. But, I almost forgot to say: Tupac was/is an American Icon. With that said, publications and people want to know what Tupac was like from the women who he chose to spend his time with. Those women he was close to. When I heard he was married even I looked her up. So, I hope people/fans will not think ill of her for being in magazines or other publications and telling her story…

  5. I have always admired Tupac. I have all his CD’S. I love his music and his outlook on life. As far as Keisha is concerned, I have no right to judge. Tupac’s spirit will always be with us. He is the grandfather of rap. I will always cherish his music. Tupac lives on forever. He is with us in spirit.

    • She is drop dead gorgeous and TOO good for him. Guilty as son I think. He used that poor girl. Why because, he is rich n handsome, n manipulative n horny. What else. He is TUPAC n his family SPOILT him.

  7. Kiesha you is a strong woman!! From what went on then you were young ,God Bless You and may 2Pac rest in peace

  8. Tupac didn’t deserve her. Keisha was a great woman to and for him. She had enough sense to leave and not get caught up in his bullshit. Many rappers don’t know how to treat REAL women especially, Black woman. I don’t care if he wrote Keep Ya Head Up and Dear Mama for black women. It don’t mean much when you don’t practice what you preach. I don’t care for phonies, hypocrites or contradictors.

    He was a FOOL chasing materialistic things, beefing to $ell records, money, cars, hoes etc. It didn’t reflect his political background and message. All of those things are meaningless and will never give you true happiness. He did not die honorably. He died for NOTHING over a dumb medallion mixed up in gang politics. Upcoming rappers should take a page from his life and heed the warning.

    • I totally understand, but show some respect for tupac, he was in gangs and stuff, that’s just who he was, but he had no chance to fix his past and he isn’t even alivw to defend himself

  9. I am confused! In 1995 he was dating kidada jones and they were engaged when he got murdered, but this says he was with keisha??

    • Pac got wit Quincy’s daughter couple months after prison. I don’t believe they were EVER engaged. I am almost 40 and have never seen her with a ring. We’ve all seen Keisha’s so where’s her ring at? If you ask me I believe the “engagement” was her way of trying to usurp a position in his life other than being just a girlfriend. Quincy didn’t want his daughter out here looking like a harlot. She was a major rap groupie back in the day. The truth is she was just another notch on his belt and having her as arm candy would have surely benefited his career transition to business and movies a la Mr. Todd Smith. Pac never said anything about her and he did NOT conduct himself as a man about to get married. Listen to the interviews he gave it’s very telling. Most didn’t know he was dating her until after his death. They try to make her out to be SO BIG in his life because she is the offspring of celebrity parents. Pfft.
