Actress and television presenter Jada Pinkett Smith recently revealed during an interview with Rolling Out’s Christal Jordan that she and the late artist Tupac Shakur were “soulmates” and believed they might have shared several “past lives” together.
This recent insight has emerged amidst a barrage of critiques about her new book, Worthy, in which she delves into unexpected details about her marriage to actor Will Smith.
A controversy enveloped Jada after her disclosure that she and Will had been separated for seven years, which led many to wonder about the underlying cause of the notable 2022 Oscar incident.
During their conversation, Jordan asked if the concept of a “soulmate friendship”, devoid of romantic implications, exists.
In response, Jada emphasized, “Absolutely! We have soulmates. Our children can be our soulmates. I think this kind of romanticized idea is like a ‘soulmate.’ There’s all kinds of definitions of a soulmate.”
Expanding on this, she acknowledged, “But yeah, you know, definitely. If there is such a thing as past lives, I definitely think Pac and I have traveled a few together. You know, in various forms.”
However, in her conversation with Jordan, Smith reaffirmed that she and Tupac were never in a romantic relationship.
The actress, who has often spoken about her close bond with the rapper, clarified that a romantic relationship with Tupac was out of the question due to their “lack of chemistry.”
Jordan probed further, “Has there ever been a time that you regretted the decision that you made not to take it to that level with him and to keep it in the friendship space?”
Jada responded “It just wasn’t possible; there was no chemistry between us.” She further noted that the only connection people might have observed between them was that of “friendship love chemistry.”
“Let me tell you, don’t think that ‘Pac and I, like I write in the book, we had those moments, and I wish I could get people to understand the repelling nature. It was almost like God made us that way,” she continued.
