In a series of tweets, Smith called the All Eyez on Me, starring newcomer Demetrius Shipp Jr., “deeply hurtful.”
“Forgive me … my relationship to Pac is too precious to me for the scenes in All Eyez On Me to stand as truth,” Smith began. “Pac never read me that poem. I didn’t know that poem existed until it was printed in his book.”
Smith is played by Kat Graham in Benny Boom’s biopic.
“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.”
Smith concluded with, “The reimagining of my relationship to Pac has been deeply hurtful.”
