It was only four months of their love affair when they fell apart by the tragic incident in Las Vegas. If not for the death of Tupac, how would their love turn out at the moment? Would their love have grown stronger leading to marriage? How many children would they have? All these questions left wondering Kidada after Tupac left her.
According to the reports, Kidada was one of the last people to have spoken to Tupac. The Washington Post had an interview with Jones where she revealed her last words with the love of her life.
Do you know I love you? Do you know we all love you?

After asking those questions, Jones stated that Tupac nodded and said "Yes." Not being able to see Tupac in pain, Jones turned towards the door. After sometimes, Tupac fell into a coma never to wake up again. She later mentioned in her father's autobiography.
Tupac was the love of my life. He and I lived together for four months and then he was murdered in Las Vegas in 1996. It was the most horrible thing that ever happened to me.

On September night in Las Vegas, Tupac was gunned down by a mystery man. Later, Kidada was called to see Tupac in the hospital; Kidada was waiting in the hotel at that moment. She was handed his bloody clothes after she reached the hospital.
She was told he had no blood pressure when he arrived at the hospital. Then, she went to the parking garage and walked around for 9 hours saying to herself, "He couldn't die." She said;
I knew we should’ve never gone to Vegas that night. I had a horrible feeling about it. I’ve gone over it in my mind a million times.
It wasn’t supposed to happen. We weren’t supposed to be there. It was the worst possible thing that could’ve happened — I still to this day don’t know who shot him. I wasn’t able to say goodbye. It’s not something that should happen to anyone.
Just like we mentioned, the love for Tupac never faded for Kidada as she still has the tattoo of her loving boyfriend on her left arm. Have a look at this picture;

How could such a dispute between Tupac and Quincy end on a good note? Quincy obviously had an extreme reaction when he found out about his daughter and Tupac's love affair.
Tupac ran into Kidada in the nightclub where he apologized for his remarks that he made to Kidada's dad. After that, they started dating. Everything went cool after that. Quincy also approved their relationship after he saw Tupac and his daughter Kidada immensely in love. Later he stated in the interview,
Tupac apologized for what he had said about me and my family. We became very close after that,

Unfortunately, the untimely death of Tupac shattered all the dreams Tupac and his girlfriend Kidada had together. Quincy also expressed his gratitude towards the death of Tupac in his biography saying;
The tragedy of Tupac is that his untimely passing is representative of too many young black men in this country. If we had lost Oprah Winfrey at 25, we would have lost a relatively unknown, local market TV anchorwoman. If we had lost Malcolm X at 25, we would have lost a hustler nicknamed Detroit Red,
And if I had left the world at 25, we would have lost a big-band trumpet player and aspiring composer; just a sliver of my eventual life potential.
