What is Keisha Morris' profession?
Since her ex-husband's death, Keisha has made very few public appearances. As a result, very little is known about Keisha's professional life. She once tried her luck at acting and even got a minor role in the 2005 comedy film, The Bag Man. Unfortunately, the film was her first and only appearance as an actress.

Was Keisha Morris Tupac's wife?
Keisha met the late Tupac Shakur in 1974 when she was a 20-year-old college student. At the time, Tupac was going through his sexual assault case at the time. The first meeting was a brief encounter at the Capitoline New York club, at the time known as Chippendale's club. They two danced and spoke briefly.
About a month later, the two met again at another club known as the Tunnel. The world-famous rapper wanted to take her out, but Keisha was initially sceptical. Still, she agreed to his request, and the two quickly fell in love.
However, Keisha and Tupac's budding romance was interrupted by the latter's incarceration when he was sentenced following his sexual assault hearing. Still, this did not deter his plans to marry Keisha. He proposed to her, and the two got married on April 29, 1995, at the Clinton Correctional Facility.
The rapper's ex-wife constantly visited him in prison and even helped run his businesses. She is even credited with helping him get signed to Death Row Records. However, the duo's marriage did not last long, with the couple divorcing a short time after Tupac was released from prison in March 1996.
Speaking about the divorce, Keisha stated that she had left the rapper after feeling she could not handle the stress that came with being married to him. She also felt unwanted after the rapper was released from prison. Still, the two are said to have remained friends even after the divorce.
Did Tupac have kids with Keisha Morris?
No, he did not. After the rapper's demise, Keisha gave birth to two children with an unnamed man. Not much is known about Keisha Morris' children, though.
Keisha Morris' net worth
According to Idolnetworth, Keisha's current net worth is about $6 million. However, this is not an official net worth figure. After Tupac's demise, Keisha says that she briefly found herself trapped in the entertainment industry because she felt like it was her duty to continue the rapper's legacy.
