Hollywood big shot, Will Smith in further revelation in his memoir after revealing having wanted to end his father’s life has revealed that he was jealous of Jada Pinkett’s, now his wife, relationship with the late Tupac Shakur, going as far as to describe it as torture to him.
The Hollywood star revealed facts in his new biography, Will, and stated that his wife’s closeness with the late rapper made him feel uneasy. Jada, 50, was Tupac’s high schoolmate and friend, and after a difficult start in life, they were able to “battle their way out from beneath the weight of abuse and neglect” to achieve the success they did.
Will Smith revealed the friendship between Jada and Tupac made him so uncomfortable when he started dating her. Writing in his memoir, Will shared, “Though they were never intimate, their love for each other is legendary, they defined ‘ride or die.’
“In the beginning of our relationship, my mind was tortured by their connection. He was ‘PAC! and I was me.”
Speaking about Tupac, Will said that the rapper had “a fearless passion that was intoxicating, a militant morality, and a willingness to fight and die for what he believed was right.”
Will admitted his jealous came from the feeling of being in Tupac’s shadow as the man was everything he was not and wanted Jada to look at him the same way she looked at Tupac.
