Jada Pinkett Smith Calls Tupac Shakur Her ‘Soulmate’

Jada Pinkett Smith Calls Tupac Shakur Her 'Soulmate'

Jada Pinkett Smith is convinced that the late rapper Tupac Shakur was her “soulmate.” The actress, who has been married to actor Will Smith since 1997, was good friends with the hip-hop star before his tragic death in a shooting in Las Vegas in 1996. Now, she’s opened up about their special bond, emphasizing that their relationship never turned romantic due to the lack of chemistry between them.

She told Rolling Out, “A soulmate, yeah. If there is such a thing as past lives, I definitely think Pac and I have traveled a few together. You know, in various forms.”

She added regarding the absence of romance, “It just wasn’t possible. There was no chemistry between us … It’s that friendship-love chemistry, trust me.”
In a 2009 interview posted on YouTube.com, Jada explained that they first met at the Baltimore School for the Arts in Maryland in the 1980s and became close friends.

She elaborated, “It was the first day, and he came over to me and introduced himself. And in high school, Pac was a little funny-looking. Just by looking at him, he wasn’t necessarily the type of person I would typically be drawn to.
“But as soon as he approached me, he was like a magnet. Once you paid attention to him, he kind of drew you in. And we hit it off from that moment on … I don’t think either one of us thought we would achieve the success we did, but we knew we were destined for something.”

Tupac was tragically shot dead in a drive-by shooting in 1996 at the age of 25. More than a quarter of a century later, Duane ‘Keffe D’ Davis, 60, was indicted by a grand jury in Nevada on one count of murder with a deadly weapon following his arrest in September.

Tupac’s sister, Sekyiwa ‘Set,’ previously expressed her hope that justice can finally be served. She told TMZ in a statement: “This is no doubt a pivotal moment. The silence of the past 27 years surrounding this case has spoken loudly in our community. It’s important to me that the world, the country, the justice system, and our people acknowledge the gravity of the passing of this man, my brother, my mother’s son, my father’s son. His life and death matter and should not go unsolved or unrecognized. So, yes, today is a victory, but I will reserve judgment until all the facts and legal proceedings are complete.”
