Jada Pinkett-Smith recently did an interview with Sway in the Morning to discuss her new movie coming out Girls Trip. She ended up discussing way more. Like how when she met Tupac, she was getting out of the “life” and he was getting into the “life” is how she put it. She goes on say she was dealing drugs at the time. She says:
“It’s kind of hard because I haven’t really told the whole story. One of the things that’s very interesting that I’ve never really said before is that when I first met Pac, I was a drug dealer.”
“That’s how we started,” she continued. “Then as I was coming out, something very bad happened to me. As I was coming out of the life, he was coming more into the life.”
“Pac and I’s relationship was about survival,” she said. “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. There’s a lot of components to our story that we’ve never shared for a very specific reason. I just decided that this one little piece was important to share finally because it gives more insight to who we were. It was about survival and it’s always been about survival between us.”
You can watch the whole interview above. She talks about this around the 17-minute mark. Who would’ve known?
