Keisha Morris is an American educator and actress, who caught the public’s attention when she started dating and later married the late legendary rapper and actor, Tupac Shakur.

Age, Early Life, and Education Background

Keisha Morris was born in The Bronx, New York City, under the Cancer zodiac sign on 10 July 1974, which makes her 49 years old as of 2023. She hasn’t revealed the names of her parents and siblings and has kept her childhood details under wraps.

Morris attended high school in New York City and matriculated to John Jay College, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice, and thereafter pursued a master’s degree in Education at the same college.


Keisha has a single film credit to her name. She portrayed Lisa’s friend in the 2005 Insane Mike Saunders-directed movie “The Bag Man,” sharing the screen with Jeff Alexander, Chris Alexander, and Melissa Alexander in the film, which was a commercial failure and received mixed reviews.

After she was completed a master’s degree, Keisha began working as an educator. She’s taught the youth about social injustices, and is a vocal campaigner and activist against racism and gender inequalities. In 1994, Tupac’s ex-wife began earning a living as a camp counselor.

Keisha has co-written several books including “When My Cousins Came to Town” and “For Beautiful Black Boys Who Believe in a Better World.”

Personal Life

Keisha first met Tupac at Capitoline New York nightclub in 1994, when she was a college student; at that time, Tupac was facing sexual assault charges. They spoke briefly and met again about four weeks later at another club named the Tunnel. Tupac offered to take her out and they began dating shortly afterward. However, their affair was interrupted when Tupac was sentenced after the hearing of his sexual assault charges was concluded. Despite the setback, Tupack proposed to her and they eventually exchanged vows on 29 April 1995, at the New York-based Clinton Correctional Facility. Morris often visited Tupac in jail to keep him company.

Morris was a supportive partner who helped her husband sign with Death Row Records, but their marriage began crumbling shortly after Tupac was released from jail in October 1995. It’s reported that Tupac often lashed out his frustration at Keisha, who had sacrificed a lot, including her education and job to be with him when he was facing a lawsuit. Feeling unwanted and overwhelmed, Keisha divorced Tupac in March 1996 – she previously revealed, ‘Things were getting very different once he got bail, and I felt like I wasn’t needed anymore … It wasn’t a good feeling. I just felt like, wow, okay, it was over. Like, Okay, I don’t need you anymore. I’m getting out.’ Despite their divorce, the two remained good friends and even made public appearances together, including attending an MTV awards ceremony together. The former couple didn’t welcome any children together.

Keisha has two children. She lives a private life and has not revealed her children’s names or that of their biological father. She currently lives in New York City.

Height, Weight, and Physical Appearance

Keisha is of Afro-American ethnicity and has a set of dark brown eyes, and black hair. She stands 5ft 1in (1.55m) tall – her weight and vital statistics remain unknown.

Net Worth

In addition to her single film credit, Tupac’s wife has worked as an educator. She is allegedly worth around $6 million as of 2023, but hasn’t disclosed the source of her wealth. On the other hand, Tupac had a net worth of approximately $40 million at the time of his death.

Who Keisha Morris’ Ex-Husband, Tupac Shakur Was

Early Life

Tupac Amaru Shakur – aka Makaveli/2Pac – was born Lesane Parish Crooks under the Gemini zodiac sign on 16 June 1971, in Upper Manhattan, New York City. He was the son of William ‘Billy’ Garland and Afeni Shakur Davis, who were political activists and members of the Black Panther Party. Tupac had an older half-brother named Mopreme ‘Komani’ Shakur and a stepsister named Sekyiwa Shakur. In the ‘80s, Tupac’s mom struggled with drug addiction and had a hard time finding work, which saw her relocate to Baltimore, Maryland, with her children. The late rapper attended various schools in there including Paul Laurence Dunbar High School and Baltimore School for the Arts, where he studied jazz, poetry, acting and ballet, and while there, was good friends with the actress Jada Pinkett, who is the wife of the Academy Award-winning actor and rapper, Will Smith.


In 1989, Tupac began recording under the name MC New York, but debuted under the name 2Pac with the record label Interscope Records in January 1991. In November 1991, he released his debut album “2Pacalypse Now,” which has been cited by many prominent rappers including Eminem. Subsequently, in February 1993, he released the album “Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z…”, and before the year ended, he co-founded the hip-hop group Thug Life. Tupac became friends with the late rapper, the Notorious B.I.G. (born Christopher George Latore) while he was visiting Los Angeles in 1993. He released a few other albums including “Me Against the World” (1995) and “All Eyez on Me” in 1996. Some of 2Pac’s posthumous albums include “Greatest Hits” (1998), “Better Dayz” (2002), and “Pac’s Life” (2006).

He appeared in several films, including the 1992 crime thriller “Juice,” the 1993 romantic drama “Poetic Justice,” and the 1994 sports drama “Above the Rim.”

Tupac is considered one of the most successful and influential rappers of all time – he sold over 75 million albums at the peak of his career. Most of his music addresses contemporary social issues plaguing inner cities, and he is widely considered a symbol of activism. He was inducted into the Hip Hop Hall of Fame and Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 2002 and 2017 respectively, and was recently awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2023.


In 1994 Tupac was ambushed and shot several times in a robbery incident that happened in a New York recording studio – he escaped with five gunshot wounds. On 7 September 1996, Tupac was shot four times in the chest in a Las Vegas drive-in, died of gunshot wounds six days later, and was cremated a day after his death. Tupac’s friend-turned-enemy, the Notorious B.I.G., was listed as one of the prime suspects in his killing due to their public feud. However, he was also shot dead in Los Angeles, six months after 2Pac’s death.
