Hear her side
Tupac is a messy figure to wrap your head around. As much as the genre has deified him after his death, he had serious flaws in his life. He was sent to prison for sexual assault and maintained his innocence until the day he died, but it’s something that fans of the rapper need to reckon with.
With that in mind, it’s worth listening to this interview with Ayanna Jackson, the woman who accused Tupac of forcing himself on her years ago.
Jackson said that she met Tupac at a nightclub called Nell’s when she was 18. She said that Tupac approached her from behind in the club and placed his hands into her back pockets. She went along with the move and went out to the dance floor with Tupac in tow to dance.
She says that they were dancing and kissing at the club. So, Vlad pushed her to explain how the night progressed in more detail.
“As we were dancing and kissing…he lowered my head,” she said. “I did not give fellatio that night on the dance floor.” She said that she picked her head back up and considered the move to be “all in good fun.”
She said that they went back to his hotel and got intimate. She called him the morning after and told Tupac that she had a great time. That’s not at issue here. The problem emerged when Ayanna went back to hanging out with Pac.
She said that she hung out “two or three times before the actual incident.”
“We would have dinner,” she said. “I would come there into the city and we would just hang out and have a good time.”
She said that they weren’t sexually involved in their later meetings and then gets to the night in question.
The Night Of
“I received a call from Charles Fuller,” she said. “He’s like ‘Pac wants to see you.’”
She said that she arrived to a crowd of Tupac and his associates. Eventually, Tupac and Ayanna end up on the bed with her giving the rapper a massage.
“He grabs the back of my head. He pulls me down and we start kissing,” she said. “The door opens. There’s light there’s noise coming from the living room, pouring into where we are.“
She said that she tried to turn toward the noise and Tupac stopped her from turning her head.
“He grabs the back of my head and he wraps my braids around his hand,” she said. “I’m hearing these people come in the room. And he’s like ‘Relax, baby.’”
Hear Her Story
She said that she was trying to figure out what was going on while the rapper kept telling her to relax.
“These are my boys,” she claims he told her. “I like you so much I decided to share you with them.”
She said that she attempted to get away and repeatedly told him that that was not what she wanted.
“I came here for you,” she said. “This is not what I want.”
She said that her dress and pantyhose were ripped off of her by the men. She said thatTupac forced himself upon her at that point and the men in the room did the same after Tupac left. The whole story is harrowing and worth a watch. Check out the interview up top.
