According to Frank Alexander (Tupac's former bodyguard): "My niece, Lemika Early, had one idol in her life, Janet Jackson. In 1995, Lemika and two of her friends were in a terrible car accident, and from the stage of 14 on, Lemika was paralyzed from the waist down and confined to a wheelchair." "At the hospital she learned about the Make-A-Wish Foundation and she got the opportunity to make her wish, meeting Janet Jackson." The Foundation arranged everything, Lemika was going to spend four nights and five days in Los Angeles (Disneyland), the family went out and spent a lot of money on clothes and other items for the trip and then at the last minute, they called and said Janet wanted to change the plans, saying that the meeting was going to take place in New York instead." "My niece was disappointed because her heart was set on going to California.
The rep said something about Janet having a favorite candy store in New York that she wanted to visit.
"Lemika returned home and replaced all of her Janet posters with Tupac posters." "Till this day, Lemika gets so mad when she hears something negative about Pac.
He told them to take all the photos they wanted and he gave my niece a blanket that belonged to him." "The next day, he invited my Aunt and niece to the recording studio, later he hosted a BBQ at his house for Lemeka.They met Snoop Dogg, Kurupt and Danny Boy." "The following day, he took them for pizza and ordered ten pizzas." "When it was time to leave, Tupac hugged everyone tightly and even gave Lemika his driver's license as a souvenir." He then told her that when he returned from Italy he was going to donate a stereo system to her school and he was going to bring her something special back and he told her to hang in there and be strong.Source: "Got Your Back," by Frank Alexander and Heidi Siegmund Cuda According to Tupac's former bodyguard Frank Alexander: One day on a video set, another one of Pac's bodyguards (Les) set Pac off after he asked Pac's then girlfriend (Salli Richardson) why wasn't anyone seeing her in any movies. Everyone knew you shouldn't mess with Pac's women, even if you're making conversation.And, Salli was definitely one of his women at this point in time. This wasn't easy to do with Salli, because she was so pleasant and affectionate.So he made his friends turn the car around to go straight to the hospital.
And he stayed in contact with the girl till his death.

According to Frank Alexander (Tupac's former bodyguard): When we arrived in Rome, Italy. We were backstage at the castle, Naomi Campbell was at the show, and I remember when I first saw her backstage.
"Pac, check it out, there's Naomi Campbell," I said.
I was dating Tupac Shakur at the time, and he had got me all riled up about life, in general.
So when I went on the show I was feeling very gangster." Check out the full interview below.
