Tupac Shakur's dating history: The rapper's affairs, girlfriends, and marriages!
Deemed one of the most influential rappers of all time, Tupac Shakur's untimely death over two decades left a void in the music world that is still felt today. Now and then, Shakur's legacy as an iconic rapper and an influential actor is recalled. Aside from his music, many fans wonder whether the rapper was married and his many love interests.
Born Lesane Parish Crooks on June 16, 1971, in New York City, he was renamed Tupac Amaru Shakur. Born to political activist parents, both Black Panther Party members, Shakur had a disruptive childhood. His mother was incarcerated for plotting to bomb locations around NY City, although she was later acquitted of all 150 charges. Tupac deemed his mother as the inspiration behind his music.
Who was Tupac Shakur's girlfriend? Is He Was Married?
Before Tupac Shakur passed away on September 13, 1996, at the hands of an unknown gunman, the rapper was reportedly dating actress Kidada Jones. Likewise, Kidada is the daughter of producer Quincy Jones and actress Peggy Lipton.
Kidada and Shakur were reportedly engaged. She was waiting for Tupac in their LA hotel room moments before the rapper was killed. The assailant shot the hip-hop legend four times.
Tupac, 25, at the time, was shot in the hand, pelvis, and chest, which sent him into a coma. As per Vanity Fair's account of Shakur's final moment, Kidada and his mother last spoke with the rapper before he bid his final goodbye.
"Do you know I love you?" Jones said to Shakur. "Do you know we all love you?" she said.

Shakur's relationship with Kidada Jones was largely overlooked; instead, the rapper's trivial flings have remained the focused aspect of his life.
"Tupac was the love of my life," Kidada had said in her father's published autobiography; her first-person account further stated, "He and I lived together for four months, and then he was murdered in Las Vegas in 1996. It was the most horrible thing that ever happened to me."

Jones was married to Jeffrey Nash from 2003 until 2006. The actress remained single and child-free after her marriage ended in the mid-2000s.
Kidada began her career as a celebrity stylist and gained recognition when she styled Michael Jackson for the cover of Vibe. Jones later worked as a close associate of Tommy Hilfiger and soon expanded her repertoire to include acting and modeling.
