Jada and Tupac met as students in the 1980s and quickly became extremely close friends, although their relationship never turned romantic.

Days after Jada Pinkett Smith expressed her discontent with the new Tupac biopic All Eyez On Me, one of the film's producers is speaking out against her.

Pinkett Smith then went on to tweet some of the things she believes the film got wrong about her relationship with Shakur.

Although Jada slammed the movie, the veteran actress praised Demetrius Shipp Jr., who played 2Pac, and Kat Graham who portrayed Jada.

Markelle Fultz works out for the 76ers as trade talks heat up
While he claims he plans on having the most impact he can wherever he ends up, Fultz really wants to be the No. 1 overall pick. After working out for the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday, guard Markelle Fultz said he wanted to get some cheesesteaks.

"The only way I can put it just the higher power just did not want that because I feel as though if Pac and I had any kind of sexual chemistry, we might have killed each other because we were both so passionate and we love deeply", she said. "They told me that they explained to her and everything was great". I didn't know that poem existed until it was printed in his book... She calls the re-imagining of their relationship in the movie "deeply hurtful".

Jada ended her social media rant by wishing her late friend a happy birthday, adding, "you are cradled in my heart for eternity".

Musical biopics, if you'll excuse the pun, often get a bad rap by their very nature of having to condense the entire life and career of a musician into a few hours of screen time in a way that's somehow satisfying to both fans and general audiences, while also carrying a narrative arc worthy of any cinematic tale, real or otherwise.

Tupac was shot in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada back in 1996.
