Jada Pinkett Smith has called out the people behind the Tupac Shakur biopic for not being truthful about their portrayal of her relationship with the late hip-hop mogul.
Jada took to Twitter on Friday – June 16- which would have been Tupac’s 46th birthday to address her problem with some of the events that were shown in the film and called it ‘deeply hurtful.’
Speaking about the film directed by Benny Boom, she wrote: ‘Forgive me… my relationship to Pac is too precious to me for the scenes in All Eyez On Me to stand as truth.’

If you haven’t watched the film then you probably want to get yourself ready for some spoilers as she explained: ‘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.’
Understanding that the actors that played her and the rapper (Kat Graham and Demetrius Shipp Jr) were not to blame for the misrepresentation of the events that really took place, she commended them for bringing: ‘so much heart and spirit to your roles’ and ‘doing a good job with what you were given.’
The 45-year-old then went on to wish Tupac a happy birthday in a heartfelt message that said: ‘Happy birthday Pac, you are cradled in my heart for eternity. I love you.’
Jada is not the only one that thinks the film was a flop, as 50 Cent also wasn’t impressed and aired his frustrations online.
Taking to Instagram he wrote: ‘Man I watched the 2 PAC film, that was some bullshit. Catch that shit on a fire stick trust me. LOL SMH TRASH.
In another post, he added: ‘I’m a big 2 PAC fan, I just don’t think his story was done well he deserved better.
