But life is not as pretty as it looks like as there is a tale to the twist!
A fateful night changed everything in September 1996. Kidada and Tupac were in Las Vegas. When Kidada was in the hotel suite, she received a phone call from police to inform that Tupac had been shot.
When she reached the hospital, she found out that Tupac had no blood pressure when he arrived. She could not believe what had just happened and walked around the parking lot for nine hours, continuously saying that he could not die.
“I knew we should’ve never gone to Vegas that night. I had a horrible feeling about it. I’ve gone over it in my mind a million times. It wasn’t supposed to happen,”
“We weren’t supposed to be there. It was the worst possible thing that could’ve happened — I still to this day don’t know who shot him. I wasn’t able to say goodbye. It’s not something that should happen to anyone.”
According to the reports on Vanity in March 1997, Kidada’s final words to her late fiancé were,
“Do you know I love you?”
“Do you know we all love you?”
Tupac’s nodded distinctively before slipping into a coma to never wake up again. The doctors suggested letting him go, and everyone lost him on September 16, 1996.
Kidada wrote first person account in her father Quincy Jones' autobiography about the love of her life Tupac. Moreover, she revealed that they lived together for four months before his death.
“Tupac was the love of my life. 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.”
But who killed Tupac remained a mystery, while there remain a plenty of suspects with motive to kill him.
Moreover, in an interview on September 2012, Kidada’s father Quincy Jones poured out his thoughts on his daughter, Kidada’s relationship with Tupac where he said,
I wasn’t happy at first. He’d attacked me for having all these white wives. And my daughter Rashida, who was at Harvard, wrote a letter to The Source taking him apart. I remember one night I was dropping Rashida at Jerry’s delicatessen, and Tupac was talking to Kidada because he was falling in love with her then. Like an idiot, I went over to him, put two arms on his shoulders and said, “Pac, we gotta sit down and talk, man.” If he had had a gun, I would’ve been done. But we talked. He apologized. We became very close after that. Once, I was having a date at the Hotel Bel-Air, and he came by and told the waiter that he would be back, he was going home to put on a tie.
According to reports, on August 2008, she was briefly married to her husband Jeffery Nash, but the dates of the wedding and split have not been disclosed yet.
Afer Jeffery, Kidada has not been in any relationships, but we hope she finds the love she deserves in the near future!
