During a recent interview, Will Smith talked about his insecurities of Jada Pinkett Smith and Tupac’s relationship.
Will explained his wife’s relationship with the late rapper saying, “I could never open up to interact with Pac. You know, because we had a little bit of a thing. You know, they grew up together and they loved each other, but they never had a sexual relationship. But they had come into that age where now that was a possibility and then Jada was with me. So Pac had a little thing on that, but she just loved him like he was the image of perfection, but she was with the Fresh Prince."
Although they had many chances to create a friendship, Will admits his ego held him back. He said, "It was like I never could even, we were in the room together a couple of times and I couldn't speak to him. You know, he wasn't going to speak to me if I wasn't going to speak to him.”
Will also shared how Jada would say him and Pac were kindred spirits and he revealed, “That was a huge regret of mine...I couldn't handle it. I was the soft rapper from Philly and he was Pac. You know what I mean? I was deeply, deeply insecure, and I wasn't man enough to handle that relationship."
