The actress, who shared a close friendship with the rapper, said she wishes for 'closure' and more, in an emotional message this week.
Jada Pinkett Smith, the actress and wife of Will Smith, has reacted to the new arrest in the murder case of rapper Tupac Shakur. On Wednesday, authorities in Los Angeles announced that they had arrested Duane Keith Davis, a 44-year-old man, in connection with the 1996 murder of Shakur.
Pinkett Smith, who was close friends with Shakur, took to social media to express her relief and hope for justice.
"Finally," she wrote on Instagram. "Justice for Tupac."
In a follow-up post, Pinkett Smith added, "I've been waiting for this day for 26 years. I'm so grateful that the authorities have finally arrested someone in connection with Tupac's murder. I hope that this arrest will bring some closure to his family and friends, and that it will also help to keep his legacy alive."
Davis was arrested on Tuesday in connection with four counts of attempted murder, including the shooting of Shakur on September 7, 1996. Shakur was shot and killed while sitting in the passenger seat of a car in Las Vegas. He died six days later at the age of 25.
The arrest of Davis is the latest development in a long-cold case. Shakur's murder has been the subject of much speculation and controversy over the years, and there have been numerous arrests and investigations.
However, the arrest of Davis has renewed hope that Shakur's murder may finally be solved. Pinkett Smith's reaction to the arrest is just one example of the many people who are eager for justice for Shakur.
