On Juny 19, 1994, Tupac first met Keisha Morris (Tupac Shakur’s ex-wife) at the old Chippendale’s club, now called the “Capitolin New York, N.Y.
Keisha Morris: ”I first met him in June of 1994. We were both at a club (the old Chippendale’s club, now called the “Capitolin New York.”) It was a Father’s Day dance. A lot of people were there. I saw Wesley Snipes, Pac–it was a really nice vibe. I saw Tupac and when I saw him I was with my girlfriend, Jamie, and I told her, “Hold my bag. I’m going to dance with Tupac. We were dancing off Wu-Tang’s song, “C.R.E.A.M.” See full story.
Keisha Morris: ”He gave me his home number and his pager number and he said, “I’m gonna stay a day later. I’m supposed to fly back to Atlanta tomorrow, but I’m going to stay a day later just to take you out.” And I was like, “Yeah right. You know, okay whatever.” See full story.
The next day – July 6, 1994, Tupac called her (Keisha Morris) exactly at 6 and said, “Okay, I’m ready to take you out. Where do you want to go?” She said it didn’t matter and he said, “I’m not coming to Harlem.” She said she wouldn’t go to his hotel so she didn’t know what they were going to do. They debated about it for an hour, then she finally said she’d meet him in the lobby. They went to dinner at a little Italian restaurant. See full story.
July 7, 1994, Friday, she (Keisha Morris) woke up early, left him a note, and kissed him (Tupac) on the cheek. He flew back to Atlanta and left eight messages on her answering machine. She went on a camping trip to Pennsylvania for a week so she couldn’t call him. She tried to find a phone to see if there was any message from him. When she came home she found his message.

On February 07, 1995, Tupac was sentenced to one-and-a-half to four-and-a-half years in prison for sexually abusing a fan. Tupac was found guilty of groping in his room at the Parker Meridien Hotel on November 18, 1993, when she (Ayanna Jackson) was 19. Tupac together with several of his friends came in and, led by Tupac, forced her to perform oral sex on them. Tupac and his road manager, Charles Fuller, were taken into custody and charged with three counts of first-degree sexual abuse, sodomy, and illegal possession of a firearm after police found two guns in the hotel room.
Keisha began to visit him in the prison, as said: “(For him) it was more like,” I want people to take you seriously and let them know you’re my wife. His thing was he wanted a visit every day, so he could get out that cell.”
On April 29, 1995, Tupac married girlfriend Keisha Morris at Clinton Correctional Facility. The civil ceremony was witnessed by her mother and Tupac’s cousin. The marriage is later anulled.
Keisha Morris: ”Once Tupac was placed in the Clinton Correctional Facility Tupac asked me to handle all of his business with his lawyers managers and record company because he wanted me to represent him, he felt it would be better and easier if I were married to him. I was kinda hesitant but I agreed. So we decided to wed four months later in a quick ceremony in the prison.”
”We never had sex when he was in jail. He did not feel like that was a place to be intimate or exposed like that.”, says Keisha Morris – Shakur.
Their marriage continues from April 29, 1995 to July 23, 1995, when Tupac and Keisha divorced in jail (unofficially). At that time, Tupac began an emotional connection with unknown to public woman named Desiree Smith aka Dez. This photo was sent to a British fan who began corresponding with Tupac in August of 1995.
On October 19, 1995, seven days after Tupac was released from prison, he divorces (officially) Keisha Morris.
Keisha Morris: ”I had to separate from Tupac after he got released from jail because, though he loved me we knew he couldn’’t be married. My love was sincere from my heart, but at times I did not feel the same from him. I never asked for anything materialistic, because that’s not why I wanted to be with him. When you are out for things that don’’t belong to you it will come back to harm you later. Now, I look back at our relationship and realize it was not a bad thing. We were still friends until the day he passed on. We still saw each other occasionally and spoke all the time. Yes it still hurts sometimes when I can’’t call Tupac and joke around with him. But our relationship has made me the full-rounded woman that I am today. Tupac will always be in my heart and a part of my life.”
