Jada Pinkett Smith is mourning the loss of a woman she admired. The profound philanthropist posted a touching status about the passing of Afeni Shakur on Facebook.
Jada and Afeni’s late son, rapper Tupac, shared a deep connection growing up. In a 2015 interview with Howard Stern, Jada revealed,
“When you have two young people that have very strong feelings, but there was no physical chemistry between us at all, and it wasn’t even just for me! It was him too. There was a time when I was like, ‘Just kiss me! Let’s just see how this goes.’ When I tell you it had to be the most disgusting kiss for us both.”
“The only way I can put it is that the higher power did not want it at all. If Pac and I had any kind of sexual chemistry, we might have killed each other because we were both so passionate. And you know, we loved deeply,” she reflected. “It was hard enough with us just being friends. It was volatile relationship.”
We imagine this is a tough time for Jada as she grieves the death of both Afeni and Tupac.
