LaLa Mourns Death Of ‘Power’ Character LaKeisha Grant ‘This Was Hard To Watch’
Fans weren’t the only ones who had a difficult time watching LaLa’s “Power” character LaKeisha Grant be shot and killed on Sunday’s episode of the show (Oct. 13).
And her death being at the hands of her former BFF Tasha St. Patrick (played by Naturi Naughton), made it even more difficult to stomach.
LaLa took to Instagram to speak on the scene and thanked creator 50 Cent, as well as her on-screen boyfriend Joseph Sikora, who plays Tommy.
“SPOILER ALERT Last night was so emotional for me. This was hard to watch I want to thank @50cent & @courtneyakemp for giving me the chance to bring LAKEISHA GRANT to life.
