Jada Pinkett Smith Told Tupac Not To Beat Up Will Smith Once They Started Dating
The “All Eyez On Me” biopic, depicted the celebrities in a fashion where one would be led to believe there was more than a friendship involved. Jada Pinkett-Smith had slammed the film for the portrayal and stated how one day she may put the truth and details of her life with Shakur.
ABC News reported that Pinkett-Smith described the relationship in the film with the following quote, “Forgive me … my relationship to Pac is too precious to me for the scenes in ‘All Eyez On Me’ to stand as truth,” she said.
Napoleon of The Outlawz in a recent interview went into the closeness between the high school students into adulthood. According to Hip-Hop Lately, Napoleon distinctly remembers Tupac mentioning Jada’s name after she had offended the rapper at the start of her relationship with Will Smith. She had reportedly told the All Eyez On Me rapper to keep his hands off of Will Smith, and her warning had bothered him to the core.
“The second time I probably heard him talk about her is when he went to LA,” Napoleon says. “He was very upset. Pac came in the room [and] was like ‘Jada, she gonna contact me and tell me don’t do nothing to Will Smith.’ Pac was upset, and said ‘I don’t know why she think I would have tried to make some problems with Will Smith. ‘ He had a lot of love for Jada Pinkett at the time.”
Jada Pinkett-Smith’s thought process was to de-escalate what she felt could become violent, but apparently this wasn’t going to be the case at the time.
Napoleon who was around Tupac Shakur daily gives an insight into what the hip hop legend would think of how his brand is being exploited for movements he may not have agreed in another segment of the interview you can watch here.
