Jada Pin­kett Smith talks Tu­pac, drug deal­ing past

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

Jada Pin­kett Smith says she was a drug dealer when she first met late rap­per Tu­pac Shakur in high school. Smith opened up about her past and her re­la­tion­ship with Shakur on Sir­iusXM ra­dio Wed­nes­day. She and Shakur were high school class­mates in Bal­ti­more. She says she changed her life af­ter “some­thing very bad” hap­pened, but didn’t give de­tails. She says God saved her, but for Shakur “that just never hap­pened.” Smith says their re­la­tion­ship “was about sur­vival” and wasn’t ro­man­tic. Shakur was fa­tally shot in Las Ve­gas in 1996. The killing re­mains un­solved. Smith says she plans to share more about her friend­ship with Shakur in an up­com­ing book.
