Who Knew? Jada Pinkett Smith Opens Up About How She First Met Tupac, Reveals She Used to Be a Drug Dealer [Video]

Jada Pinkett Smith used to be about that life.

Speaking to SiriusXM’s “Sway in The Morning” about her new movie, ‘Girls Trip,’ the conversation shifted from the movie to her relationship with Tupac.

For the first time, she opened up about how they REALLY met.

“It’s kind of 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, I was a drug dealer.”

“That’s how we started,” she continued. “Then as I was coming out, something very bad happened to me. As I was coming out of the life, he was coming more into the life.”

“Pac and I’s relationship was about survival,” she said. “That’s how it started. I know that most people want to always connect it in this romance thing and that’s just because they don’t have the story. It was based in survival, how we held each other down and when you have somebody that has your back when you feel like you’re nothing, that’s everything. There’s a lot of components to our story that we’ve never shared for a very specific reason. I just decided that this one little piece was important to share finally because it gives more insight to who we were. It was about survival and it’s always been about survival between us.”
