Will Smith is making headlines daily with all the information being released from his new memoir and now the always talked about Tupac and Jada connection is trending again.
He opens up about why he had certain negative emotions towards the legendary rap star. The book has been making waves ever since its release on November 9th. The Fresh Prince of Bel Air touched upon his wanting a relationship with his co-star that played “Hilary Banks” in the book. Ironically, Karyn Parsons declined his offer and would eventually have relations with Tupac Shakur.
He would go on to marry another actress in Jada Pinkett, who got her first big break in Hollywood because of Tupac Shakur in the cult classic film Menace II Society. The two were close friends going back to their school days at the Baltimore School for the Arts in the 1980s, which created tension with Will Smith due to their past connection.
“Though they were never intimate, their love for each other is legendary – they defined ‘ride or die,’” he writes in the book. “In the beginning of our relationship, my mind was tortured by their connection. He was PAC! and I was me.”
Jada Pinkett had also asked Tupac Shakur not to get into any physical altercation in who would be her future husband. The two men were rap icons in the 90’s and had were seen as sex symbols to fellow celebrities and their fans. Unfortunately, fans would never see the two link up together for music or even at events.
Will Smith admitted to Tupac having a “fearless passion that was intoxicating, a militant morality, and a willingness to fight and die for what he believed was right.”
Will Smith continues, “Pac was like Harry [Smith’s younger brother] – he triggered the perception of myself as a coward. I hated that I wasn’t what he was in the world, and I suffered a raging jealousy: I wanted Jada to look at me like that.”
He goes on to admit he felt a “twisted kind of victory” when she spent more time with him than Tupac.
“If she chose me over Tupac, there was no way I could be a coward,” Will Smith says. “I have rarely felt more validated… I was in a room with Tupac on multiple occasions, but I never spoke to him. The way Jada loved Pac rendered me incapable of being friends with him. I was too immature.”
Will Smith previously spoke about being insecure over Tupac and Jada Pinkett relationship on The Breakfast Club in January 2020.
“[Me and Tupac] had a little bit of a thing because [Tupac and Jada] grew up together, and they loved each other, but they never had a sexual relationship,” he said at the time. “But, they had come into that age where now that was a possibility, and then Jada was with me.”
He added, “Pac had a little thing on that, but she just loved him. Like, he was the image of perfection, but she was with The Fresh Prince.”
Will and Jada have recently purchased a home in the exclusive Hidden Hills community. The couple also owns homes in Woodland Hills, Calif., in Pennsylvania, and in Maryland. And they’ve got a nearly 10,000-square-foot ski chalet in the winter resort town of Park City, Utah.
Will and Jada Pinkett Smith have added another home to their collection. This time, it's a brand new home in the exclusive Hidden Hills community. Let's peek inside!

When I was a little younger I wanted Will and Jada love. In my very early twenties I def had it. I was head over heels, and she was trying to get in entanglements. 😭
Are there any good love stories anymore?
Blake and Ryan seem to have it good.

Everyone is saying they're tired of Will and Jada.
Perfect or imperfect, at least there are absolutely no lies in their relationship and they're honest enough not to put up fronts for their partner.
(Side note: you're actually more so tired of Jada than you are of Will 🤷🏾♂️)

What if the secret Jada got on Will Smith is that he had Tupac killed? Cause her and Tupac was still messing around and Will heavily desired her… which is why he can’t divorce her, idk man I just be talking fr https://t.co/HdSyMmJF3z
