"All Eyez On Me" Exceeds Expectations With Projected $31M Opening Weekend

Earlier on Friday, Jada Pinkett Smith - a close friend of Shakur's before his murder - bashed the film for wrongly portraying her relationship with the legendary rapper.

"Forgive me... my relationship to Pac is too precious to me for the scenes in All Eyez On Me to stand as truth", she tweeted. Benny Boom eventually signed on in November of 2015 to see the film through to its completion in April 2016.

"I'm kind of disappointed and just hurt by the accusations that it wasn't depicted or I can't remember the exact words she said", Hutton said. He had to leave abruptly and it wasn't to pursue his career.

However, the movie's producer L.T. Hutton told TMZ.com that he had never meant to precisely recreate Pinkett Smith and Tupac's relationship, but wanted to depict it in the way he thought the rapper would have wanted. I've never been to any of Pac's shows by his request.

"The reimagining of my relationship to Pac has been deeply hurtful", Smith wrote on Twitter Friday afternoon (June 16). The pair met as teens when the rapper lived in Pinkett Smith's hometown of Baltimore.

However, she made it clear that she had no issues with the actors of the film as it was "no fault of yours".

"Happy birthday Pac, you are cradled in my heart for eternity", she tweeted.

All Eyez on Me has also been hit with numerous negative reviews, the picture being called "uniformly uninspired" and "a muddled vision of Tupac".

Tupac was 25-years-old when he was gunned down in a drive-by shooting in 1996.
