Actress, Jada Smith reveals that she was once a drug dealer
By Patricia Uyeh,
Jada Pinkett Smith, American actress and wife of actor, Will Smith, has revealed in an interview with “Sway in the Morning,” that she met late best friend Tupac Shakur whilst she was a drug dealer.
The actress said that she thought it best to disclose this to clear the air on people’s perception of her relationship with the late rapper.
“It’s kinda hard because I haven’t really told the whole story. One of the things that’s very interesting that I’ve never really said before is that when I first met Pac, when we first met, I was a drug dealer. Yes.
“There was a point in which we met and then we kind of were going our separate ways. And I just felt like, ‘OK God, one day you’re going to do for Pac what you did for me, which is you saved me. And that just never happened for him.
“And so that is something that I am constantly having to confront,
“I know that most people wanna always connect us in this romance thing, but that’s just because they don’t have the story.
“But it was based on survival, how we held each other down, you know what I’m saying? And when we have somebody that has your back when you feel like you’re nothing, that’s everything.”
