Celebrity News: The actress has recognized in an interview the way in which she met the rapper. “When he tried to get out of that environment, he went deeper,” she says. Pinkett has assured that she will not give more details “because I am going to write a book”.
The actress, producer and songwriter Jada Pinkett Smith, wife of fellow actor Will Smith, has acknowledged in a recent interview the turbulent way she met her best friend, Tupac Shakur. In a talk for the program Sway in the morning, she relates that ” because I haven’t really told the whole story.” “When I first met Pac, when we first met, I was a drug dealer.”
It was known that the rapper and the actress met at an art school in Baltimore when they were students, but that facet of Pinkett had never been known. “I’m not going to give more details because I’m going to write a book on the subject, but it started,” says Jada Smith. “When she tried to get out of that environment, he [Tupac] went deeper and deeper into it.”
The strong bond of friendship that united the actress Jada Pinkett Smith with the ill-fated Tupac Shakur has been documented with more or less success in several films on the life of the rapper, the last one of the documentary of Benny Boom ‘All Eyez on Me’.
Since its premiere, last June, Will Smith’s wife has been very critical about how the director shaped their relationship on the big screen and that is why she is now considering telling her own version of the facts in which would be her second editorial adventure.
One of the most unknown – and certainly surprising – parts of her friendship with the famous rapper is how they got started. Until now, it was well known that Jada and Tupac first met at a public art school in Baltimore, where they were both students, but three decades later, it remained a secret for many of the terms in which their first meeting: when she worked selling illegal substances.
” I’ve been having kind of an existential crisis around Pac because I was coming out, he was coming in, and there was a point at which we met. And then we kinda were going our separate ways. And I just felt like, ‘OK, God, one day you’re going to do for Pac what you did for me, which is, you saved me.’ And that just never happened for him, “she said Wednesday as she passed the radio program ‘Sway in the Morning’.
Before the shooting that would end his death in 1996, the American musician had many problems with the justice that took to him to serve a sentence of several months in prison by a sexual crime. At the same time, her friend Jada was able to embark on a very different path to leave behind the most turbulent years of her youth after suffering a traumatic experience of which she does not want to give details, but that made her realize that she needed to turn 180 Degrees to your life.
“When I tried to get out of all this, something bad happened to me, and as I tried to get out of that environment, he went deeper and deeper into it.” God, one day you will do for Pac what you did for me. “But it never happened to him,” remembered Will Smith’s wife on that stage, before she met the father of her children and became the movie star she is today.
