Ayanna Jackson,44, whose accusation sent rapper Tupac Shakur to prison 25 years ago is speaking publicly for the first time about the alleged assault.
Ayanna Jackson,says she was r*ped in November 1993 by Tupac and his friends. In an interview with VladTV, Ayanna describes the disturbing s*xual assault, claiming Tupac told her he wanted to share her with his friends and persisted to force her into a group s*x situation despite her repeatedly telling him no.
The woman said during the interview on Tuesday that she was 18 or 19 when she met Tupac at Nell’s Nightclub in New York. She said she hit it off with the rapper that night and as they danced they started flirting and kissing each other.
She said: “I was in the club. I was having some champagne and he walked up behind me. I had some jeans on that night. And he placed his hands into the back pockets of my jeans … We progressed out of the VIP into the night club to dance.”
She said she and Tupac later left the club and went back to a hotel, where they had consensual sex. In the following days, Jackson said Tupac would send a car to pick her up so they could hang out. She said all the meetings were arranged by Tupac’s road manager, Charles Fuller.
On November 18, 1993, the rapper invited Jackson to his room at the Parker Meridien Hotel in New York. Jackson said when she arrived, the rapper and his friends were in the living room of their hotel suite. She and Tupac eventually parted from the group and went to a bedroom.
Jackson told DJ Vlad that Tupac asked for a massage and as she was straddling him rubbing his shoulders, he grabbed the back of her head and pulled her in for a kiss. She said that’s when the bedroom door opened and several people walked in making remarks about her body. She said she tried to turn around to see what was going on, but Tupac allegedly wrapped his hand around her hair and pulled her face close to his.
“Because he has his hand in my braids, I can’t physically move around,” she said.
Tupac allegedly told Jackson: “These are my boys. I like you so much, I decided to share you with them.”
Jackson said as she struggled to get away and repeatedly told the rapper “no”, his friends ripped her dress off. Jackson alleges that she was raped that night by Tupac and three of his friends as Fuller watched.
Tupac was convicted of first-degree sexual abuse and was sentenced to 1.5 to 4.5 years behind bars, but was released after 9 months. The rapper repeatedly said he was innocent of the charges up until his death in 1996.
