Will Smith: The actor receives the support of Internet users after Jada Pinkett Smith’s tribute to 2Pac
Will Smith: The actor receives the support of Internet users after Jada Pinkett Smith’s tribute to 2Pac

Each year, Jada Pinkett Smith pays tribute to 2Pac Shakur, who died on September 13, 1996 and with whom she was very close during their youth. But the last words she sent in memory of the rapper this Wednesday, June 16, led many to believe that she always loved him more than her husband, Will Smith.

Long before they both became famous, Jada Pinkett Smit and 2Pac Shakur met in the 1980s at the Baltimore School of Arts. Jada Pinkett Smit was a drug dealer at the time when she had a real love at first sight for the young man who was already aiming for a career in music.

If 2Pac was not insensitive to the charm of the actress either, she has always said that their relationship remained platonic. In 2003, she declared in the documentary Tupac Resurrection that she considered him “like a brother”:

It was beyond friendship for us. The type of relationship we had only met once in a lifetime.

And it looks like her marriage to Will Smith didn’t dampen the vigor of her feelings for the rapper who died in a Las Vegas shooting.

Too much tribute to 2Pac?

Every year, Jada Pinkett Smith doesn’t miss an opportunity to pay tribute to 2Pac by posting photos on its networks. This June 16, 2021, the interpreter of California Love would have celebrated its 50 years. On this occasion, Will Smith’s wife shared an unpublished poem by 2Pac on Instagram, entitled Lost Soulz (Lost Souls):

Over the years, he wrote me many letters and poems.

She said.

A publication that earned Will Smith mockery on the Web but alsot de many messages of support. Internet users felt that his wife was doing too much and seemed much more in love with the rapper than with him. And they weren’t kind to her.

A tried man

If Will Smith and 2Pac had already crossed paths before, the two men never spoke to each other. What the actor regrets, as he remembered in 2020 on the set of The Breakfast Club :

It’s a regret for me because I never managed to interact with 2Pac. We ended up in the same room several times but I couldn’t speak to him. (โ€ฆ) It is a great regret, I did not manage to manage the situation. I was a nice rapper from Philadelphia and that was Pac. I really didn’t have enough self-confidence to handle this situation.

Well aware that his wife and 2Pac had a special bond, the actor of Bad Boys eventually resigned himself and got used to the idea. However, he suffered greatly from this situation, especially when his daughter, Willow Smith, wrote a letter to 2Pac in 2012 asking him to come back into their lives.

This is not the first time that Will Smith has been publicly humiliated because of his wife’s attitude. Last July, Jada Pinkett Smith confirmed to her husband the words of rapper August Alsina, with whom she had a little adventure. However, it seems that this little prank has been validated by the actor since he and his wife would form a free couple.

Words that the two stars were quick to deny.
