"The reimagining of my relationship to Pac has been deeply hurtful."
Jada Pinkett Smith, a close friend of late rapper Tupac Shakur, has taken to Twitter to share her thoughts on the recent biopic about the late rapper, All Eyez on Me, and she’s not too happy about the film’s depiction of her relationship with Tupac.
On Friday, Smith shared a series of tweets, telling fans, “Forgive me… my relationship to Pac is too precious to me for the scenes in All Eyez On Me to stand as truth.”
She went to give praise to actors Demetrius Shipp Jr. and Kat Graham, who play Shakur and Pinkett Smith in the biopic, writing, “To @KatGraham and @Dshippjr this is no fault of yours. Thank you for bringing so much heart and spirit to your roles.”
All Eyez On Me dropped June 16, Shakur’s birthday. The rapper would have been 46.
Pinkett remembered her friend, tweeting, “Happy birthday Pac, you are cradled in my heart for eternity. I love you.”
All Eyez on Me was written by Jeremy Haft, Eddie Gonzalez and Steven Bagatourian and directed by Benny Boom after Antoine Fuqua and John Singleton left the project, the later citing major creative differences as his reason for departing the film.
Still, the film opened with $3.1 million and is expected to make $17-22 million over the weekend.
