Will Smith’s new book, WILL, is now out and in it, he confesses he had a “raging jealousy” of Tupac.
His wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, had a well-documented personal relationship with Tupac. The two of them attended the Baltimore School For The Arts in the 80s and Will felt threatened by their past.
“In the beginning of our relationship, my mind was tortured by their connection. He was PAC! and I was me.” Will writes in the book. “I hated that I wasn’t what he was in the world, and I suffered a raging jealousy: I wanted Jada to look at me like that.”
“If she chose me over Tupac, there was no way I could be a coward,” Will Smith says. “I have rarely felt more validated… I was in a room with Tupac on multiple occasions, but I never spoke to him. The way Jada loved Pac rendered me incapable of being friends with him. I was too immature.”
