Will Smith has manned as much as his infantile conduct previously.
On Monday, the actor and musician posted a clip to Instagram from a current interview he did with the radio present “The Breakfast Club.” In the clip, Smith is requested about his spouse, Jada Pinkett Smith, and her shut friendship with the late rapper Tupac Shakur.
“I was so Jealous of Pac that it kept me from ever even speaking to him … Insecurity is a Vicious Dragon!” Smith captioned the video.
In the clip, Smith is requested by one of many present’s hosts if he was ever “jealous of the love Jada had for Tupac.”
“Fuck yeah,” Smith admitted earlier than elaborating on the state of affairs.
“I could never open up to interact with Pac,” he mentioned. “You know, because we had a little bit of a thing. You know, they grew up together and they loved each other, but they never had a sexual relationship.”
“But they had come into that age where now that was a possibility and then Jada was with me,” Smith added. “So 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.”
The “Bad Boys for Life” star went on to confess that his icy relationship with the “Dear Mama” rapper is certainly one of his largest regrets.
“We were in the room together a couple of times and I couldn’t speak to him,” Smith mentioned. “You know, he wasn’t going to speak to me if I wasn’t going to speak to him.”
Pinkett Smith had tried to determine a pleasant relationship between the 2 males.
“Jada would say all the time, ‘I’m telling you, y’all are so similar, you will love him,’” Smith mentioned. “And I just never … That was a huge regret of mine. I couldn’t handle it.”
Smith concluded by his previous conduct looking back.
“I was deeply, deeply insecure, and I wasn’t man enough to handle that relationship,” he mentioned.
Pinkett Smith has all the time been vocal about her friendship with Shakur, who was killed in 1996. The two met in highschool whereas they have been attending the Baltimore School of the Arts in Maryland within the 1980s and rapidly hit it off.
Shakur even devoted a poem to the “Red Table Talk” host — which is featured in “The Rose That Grew from Concrete,” a group of poems written by Shakur between 1989 and 1991 — through which he says Pinkett Smith is his “heart in human form.”
Although the 2 have been clearly shut, Pinkett Smith has all the time maintained that their bond was purely platonic.
“Pac and I’s relationship was about survival,” she advised SiriusXM’s “Sway in the Morning” in 2017. “That’s how it started. I know that most people want to always connect it in this romance thing and that’s just because they don’t have the story. It was based in survival, how we held each other down and when you have somebody that has your back when you feel like you’re nothing, that’s everything.”
