It’s been 20 years since Tupac’s tragic death. When you think of Tupac, you may think of him as a legendary rapper, actor, poet, and voice for the young, black community. But one title you probably never associated with his name is husband. Yes, Tupac was once married to a woman named Keisha Morris.
It wasn’t a highly publicized marriage, but their union was very much legit. There have been many rumors, myths, and fallacies of what was going on in Tupac’s life while he was alive. Though she’s been out of the spotlight for years and years, Keisha is here to tell her side of the story.
When They Met
Keisha met Tupac in 1994, when she was 20 years old. At that time, Tupac was on the cusp of his success. He had already released 2Pacalypse Now and Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z., and starred in movies Juice and Poetic Justice. He was in the midst of recording Me Against the World and also in the middle of a huge legal situation.
In an interview with XXL, she recalled the actual night:
“We met when I was 20, at the Capitol [nightclub]… We were dancing, and we spoke briefly. He was going through something legally at the time, and I told him to just be careful of the people he’s around and that I hope everything works out… I saw him a month later at the Tunnel [another nightclub], and…he remembered the whole conversation… He told me he had been looking for me for a month—going to every club. He tried to invite me back to his hotel room. I was like, ‘No, that’s not happening.'”
A Persistent Pac
Keisha’s declining to go back to Pac’s room didn’t stop him from trying to pursue her. In the interview, she continued:
“He gave me his number, and I gave him my house number. It was too expensive to have a cell phone back then, so he gave me his SkyPager. 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.”
