Jada Pinkett Smith Says She Was A Drug Dealer When She Met Tupac

Jada Pinkett-Smith and Tupac Shakur began their friendship while they were both students at Baltimore School for the Arts in the 80’s. However, what you didn’t know is that there is more to their story.

 

While promoting her new film, “Girls Trip,” Jada told “Sway In The Morning” on Wednesday that she was dealing drugs when she first met Tupac.

 

“When I first met Pac, I was a drug dealer,” she revealed. “That’s how we started. 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 on 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.”

 

Jada also discussed the criticism she had for the All Eyez On Me film and why she’s chosen to stop addressing it with negativity.

 

“A couple days ago I had to just lay that down too and realize this is God’s work,” she said. “It’s not for me to protect his legacy.”
In the future, Jada says she plans to write a book about her early years — and Tupac will be included.
“There’s a lot of components to our story that we’ve never shared for a very specific reason,” she said. “I just decided that this one little piece was important to share finally because it gives more insight to who we were.”
