In the Summer of 1994, Tupac Shakur met and fell in love with Keisha Morris at the Capitol nightclub in NYC. The two dated for a few months before getting married on April 29, 1995, while Shakur was in jail for a previous sexual abuse incident. Unfortunately, their marriage was short-lived, as it was annulled in March 1996, just five months after Shakur’s release from prison.
Morris revealed in a 2011 interview with XXL Mag that things changed after Shakur got bail, and she felt like she wasn’t needed anymore. “It wasn’t a good feeling. OK, of course you don’t know from being so young. But I just felt like, ‘Wow, OK, it was over.’ Like, ‘OK, I don’t need you anymore. I’m getting out.’ That’s it.” Despite their split, Shakur and Morris remained friends up until the rapper’s death on Sept. 13, 1996.
Shakur’s relationship with Morris was just one of many tumultuous romances he had throughout his life. Despite the ups and downs of his love life, it’s clear that Shakur had a profound impact on those he cared about, as his friends and fans continue to celebrate his legacy to this day.
