Will Smith Speaks On His Insecurities About Jada And Tupac’s Relationship

Will Smith is once again speaking out about the “deep connection” that his wife Jada Pinkett Smith had with the late Tupac Shakur. 

In his new book, Will, the actor/rapper opens up about the time he felt insecure about Jada and Pac’s close relationship. 

“Though they were never intimate, their love for each other is legendary- they defined ‘ride or die,’” Smith wrote in the book. “In the beginning of our relationship, my mind was tortured by their connection. He was PAC! And I was me. 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.” 

Smith went to say that he felt a “twisted kind of victory” when she eventually chose him over ‘Pac. 

“If she chose me over Tupac, there was no way I could be a coward. 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.”
