Her post reads: "Forgive me... my relationship to Pac is too precious to me for the scenes in All Eyez On Me to stand as truth.

Pac never read me that poem. I didn't know that poem existed until it was printed in his book.

Pac never said goodbye to me before leaving for LA. He had to leave abruptly and it wasn't to pursue his career.

I've never been to any of Pac's shows by his request. We never had an argument backstage.

The reimagining of my relationship to Pac has been deeply hurtful.

To Kat and Demetrius this is no fault of yours. Thank for bringing so much heart and spirit to your roles. You both did a beautiful job with what you were given. Thank you both.

Happy birthday Pac, you are cradled in my heart for eternity. I love you."

Friday afternoon TMZ got ahold All Eyez On Me producer L.T. Hutton who says he respects "the hell out of Mrs. Smith" and was "very responsible" with everyone depicted, but the film does take a few liberties that do not diminish the overall accuracy of it.

BuzzFeed News has reached out to representatives for Benny Boom, the director, and two of the film's writers, Eddie Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft, for comment.
