Tupac's Mother, Activist, Afeni Shakur -- Dead at 69


Tupac’s mother, Afeni Shakur, died late Monday night. It’s believed she suffered from a heart attack.

via TMZ:

The Marin County Sheriff’s Department says it responded to Afeni’s Sausalito, CA home Monday around 9:43 PM for a report of a cardiac arrest. She was transported to a hospital … where she was pronounced dead at 10:28 PM.

Afeni was a philanthropist, founding and running the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation after her son’s death. She was also a Black Panther … and defended herself in court when she was accused of multiple bombings in 1970.

As keeper of all things Tupac, Afeni greenlit the biopic, “All Eyez on Me” … which just recently wrapped filming.

As TMZ first reported … she was in the middle of an ugly divorce battle — her estranged husband is demanding $10k per month … for life. 

The Marin County Sheriff says the coroner will investigate to determine the exact cause of Afeni’s death.

So sad.
