As you might know, Tupac Shakur and Jada Pinkett Smith was very close before his death! That said, one of the rapper’s friends now shares how Tupac reportedly reacted to her date with the Fresh Prince of Bel Air actor and more!
It wasn’t long before Jada married Will Smith , but three months before they became husband and wife, she lost her close friend, also Tupac, when the rapper was shot dead.
Still, that means he was still there to witness the beginning of their relationship and reportedly his deep concern and affection for the actress caused some serious tension between the three.
Now an Outlawz Immortalz member, Napoleon, has shared some never-before-seen details during a The Art of Dialogue interview!
“I remember when I first got to Pac, Jada was in a movie; it may have been the first movie she starred in with one of the Wayans Brothers – I can’t remember the name of it. We went to Atlanta and I was a kid and I said, ‘This movie is boring’, but Pac was staring at the screen, just paying attention and very involved in the movie… like he was really focused. But the second time I heard him talk about her was probably when he went to L.A. and was really upset. Pac came into the room, he said, “Jada is going to contact me and tell me, ‘Don’t hurt Will Smith!'” the man, who used to be accompanied by Tupac, told the camera.
That’s right! According to Napoleon, Jada begged Tupac not to fight her husband!
He recalled that the rapper was very upset when he heard this from Jada, saying, “I don’t know why she would think I would try to make some trouble with Will Smith. So I think it hurt him. He had a lot of love for Jada Pinkett and a lot of respect for her. Lots of respect for her!’
Hearing this, some fans took to their platforms to comment on how Jada always seems to be “embarrassing” Will these days.
“Jada does a hell of a lot,” said one, while another argued, “She has more feelings for a dead man than for her own living husband.”
