Actress Jada Pinkett-Smith makes headlines plenty thanks to her controversial marriage to Will Smith, but he’s not the only man she’s had a passionate relationship with.
Before there was Will, Jada had a rather close relationship with Tupac Shakur, and even though things never really got romantic between them, she claims it was intense that they fought often.
She tells Howard Stern:
“Now being older, I have more of an understanding of what that was between us. When you have two young people that have very strong feelings, but there is no physical chemistry between us at all. And it wasn’t even just for me! It was him too. There was a time when I was like, ‘Just kiss me! Let’s just see how this goes.’ And when I tell you it had to be the most disgusting kiss for us both.
“If Pac and I had any kind of sexual chemistry, we might have killed each other because we were both so passionate. And you know, we loved deeply. It was hard enough with us just being friends. We had a very volatile relationship.”
Jada then goes on to say she wasn’t on speaking terms with Tupac when he was murdered, and she regrets not making peace with him before his death.
