JADA PIN­KETT SMITH & TU­PAC SHAKUR

BALTHMORE SCHOOL OF ARTS

OK! (USA) - - Flashback -

Prior to be­com­ing an iconic rap­per, Tu­pac was pen­ning po­etry for a beloved classmate: Jada! “It was the first day and he came over to me and in­tro­duced him­self,” the ac­tress re­called of meet­ing him in the mid-’80s. “And in high school, Pac was a lit­tle funny look­ing... [he] wasn’t nec­es­sar­ily the type of cat that I would even, like, deal with.” Though that mo­ment de­vel­oped into a “pre­cious” friend­ship, Jada’s ad­mit­ted that the pair weren’t speak­ing be­fore Tu­pac was killed in 1996, as they’d a “hard­core” ar­gu­ment about chang­ing their lives. “It def­i­nitely taught me a les­son,” she said. “Don’t let dis­agree­ments stand in be­tween you and peo­ple that you love ”
