Share on Facebook Keisha Morris has some reservations. While preparing for a XXL photo shoot at a New York City studio on a rainy June evening, the pint-sized, caramel-complected year-old sits on a folding chair, straight-faced and uneasy.
The two met in N. He was recording Me Against the World and also in the middle of major legal drama, as he was facing charges of sexual abuse and unlawful possession of a firearm. He was later found guilty of just sexual abuse and sentenced to four and a half years in prison, of which he did 10 months. How did you meet Tupac?
We met when I was 20, at the Capitol [nightclub]… We were dancing, and we spoke briefly. He tried to invite me back to his hotel room. 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. Did you meet him before or after his sexual-abuse incident occurred? I know he was going through depositions.
He had a hotel, but he stayed with me. I was nowhere around. That kind of thing is tough on everybody. I was 20 years old. That taught me lessons. Would I do it again now? What made you stay? Because I got to know him. Do you walk away? Before Tupac went to jail, he proposed to you, and then you two got married four months after he went in. We got married April 29, His thing was he wanted a visit every day, so he could get outta that cell.
It was such a dramatic process, like, Oh, my God. I dreaded to do it. But, you know, I did it. Your marriage was annulled 10 months later—not long after he got out of jail. I thought that things were changing, that he changed. But I just felt like, Wow, okay, it was over. You know, looking back now, there was no conjugal visits or things like that.
