Kat Graham Says Jada Pinkett-Smith Was Contacted Prior to The Release of 'All Eyez On Me'

The All Eyez On Me biopic received quite the amount of criticism since its debut on what would’ve been Pac’s 46th birthday (June 16).

A multitude of the critics were people who weren’t close to the rapper at the time of his life or too young to be able to have followed the publicized details of his career. However Jada Pinkett-Smith’s critique of the Benny Boom-directed film stood out due to her intimate relationship with Pac, in addition to her inclusion in the film.

Despite her recent tangent on Twitter which discredited the details of her “precious” relationship with the East Harlem native, the actress who portrayed Pinkett-Smith, Kat Graham, expressed her confusion towards the NAACP award-winning actress’s statements to E-Online Monday (June 19).

Pac never read me that poem. I didn’t know that poem existed until it was printed in his book.

I’ve never been to any of Pac’s shows by his request. We never had an argument backstage.

To @KatGraham and @Dshippjr this is no fault of yours. Thank you for bringing so much heart and spirit to your roles.

You both did a beautiful job with what you were given. Thank you both.

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

I love you.- Jada Pinkett Smith (@jadapsmith) June 16, 2017

The Vampire Diaries actress began, “When I first got the role, I reached out to [her] a year and a half ago. The point of reaching out to her, as well as the other producers on the film, was to ensure the integrity of the story and the character. I even spoke to her last week and she had nothing but support.”

A large part of everyone’s argument in relation to the Girls Trip thespian, is why exactly such a harshly-criticized movie would attempt to portray a person who is alive and well without consulting them? 

Despite the fact checking that the Set It Off actress lobbied to the $27 million debuting movie, Kat Graham expressed her adoration for Jada Pinkett-Smith, “I have a lot of love for her. I hope people just see the movie and make the choice for themselves.”

Hello everyone, I hate to have to do this but he’s left me no choice. This is Nathanael Huley, or that’s what his name was on Facebook. He has been catfishing people with my pictures and old personal material for over a year now. I had figured out who he was the beginning of this year and politely asked him to stop, and he said he would. It seems he has lied, and I’m tired of him not only slandering my image, but playing with other people’s emotions as well for the sake of receiving sexual material from his victims. Enough is enough. His Instagram/snapchat is Nate.xo, his tumblr is imthrowingmydildosatyou.tumblr.com (classy I know) and his number is (909)-827-8995. He is from Eastvalle, CA and attended Eleanor Roosevelt High School. I do not expose him out of hate, I expose him in hopes he sees that karma is indeed a powerful thing and that he gets his act together. And Nate, I know you’re reading this because you have used my selfies as Grindr profile pictures. Fool me once shame on me. Fool me twice shame on you. Identity theft is not a joke, and I hope you learn from this. Stop playing with my image and with others emotions. Thank you.

8995) It all started out when I heard on tv how girls were obsessing over thigh gaps. So I put my feet together and saw that my thighs touched but I was okay with that. But then I noticed when my thighs rubbed together and how annoying it was when they stuck to each other. I started wishing for a thigh gap cause I sure knew I could t give up food! Then I got sick of wishing and that's pretty much when my disordered eating habits happened. I remember every last detail of what people say about my weight.
