It is a well-known fact that before meeting Will Smith, Jada shared a close bond with Tupac Shakur. From going to the same high school to retaining their friendship for years after that, the two were pretty close. During her recent interviews, Jada revealed that she considered Shakur to be her soulmate. In another conversation, the Red Table Talk host clarified that she felt that they had even crossed paths in “past lives” before meeting in this one.

Well, these statements were deemed a mockery of her husband, Will Smith, by many trolls online. The Bad Boys actor’s fans felt that the Red Table Talk host had turned their relationship into a meme fest by speaking about another man in this manner. So, it is possible that Smith is simply playing the same game as his wife now. After all, neither 2Pac nor Will Smith’s fans thought she was being fair to the men.
