Afeni Shakur, a longtime political activist and mother of the late rap legend Tupac, has tragically passed away at the age of 69.
According to the Marin County Sheriff’s Office in Sausalito, CA, police responded to a report of cardiac arrest at Shakur’s home around 9:43 p.m. and transported her to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead not even an hour later.
As we told you in March, Afeni recently filed for divorce from her husband of 12 years, who was supposedly gunning for half of her son’s estate. Yikes!
Authorities say a coroner will investigate the exact cause of death, but for now it seems to be an apparent heart attack.
We’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Shakur family during this difficult time.
