Tupac marries girlfriend whilst serving time behind bars
23 years ago, on 29th April 1995, Tupac Shakur married his girlfriend Keisha Morris at Clinton Correctional Facility. Keisha, who is from the Bronx, was studying Criminal Justice at college when she met the legendary rapper.
Tupac first met Keisha, who at the time was 20, in the summer of 1994 whilst dancing in a New York nightclub. They spoke very briefly with Keisha offering support to Tupac, wishing him well with the legal issues he was going through.
They bumped into each other again a month later at another nightclub, he remembered Keisha and was looking for her in every club since first meeting a month prior. After the second time they had seen one another, they exchanged numbers and the very next day Tupac called and they kept in touch..
Before Tupac was sentenced in February 1995, he proposed to Keisha and the civil ceremony was witnessed by Keisha’s mother and Tupac’s cousin. A source close to both Tupac and Keisha said that the pair believe in each other and believe they will have a bright future together. Once married Tupac liked Keisha visiting him in prison, asking her to come everyday. She did so and if she could not make it for a visit she would send someone else so that Tupac had a visitor. Ten months later the marriage was annulled. Keisha felt that when Tupac got out of prison on bail that she wasn’t needed. The pair kept in contact after the marriage was over.
