Actress Jada Pinkett Smith has described the late rapper Tupac Shakur as her soulmate 30 years after his demise.
Jada referred to Tupac as her one genuine “soulmate” despite having been married to Will Smith for 19 years when she spoke to Christal Jordan of RollingOut on Thursday, October 12, ahead of the publication of her honest-to-goodness memoir.
The actress, who acknowledged that she and Tupac had little chemistry, went on to allege that Pac had proposed to her and she had declined.
Jordan asked her during the interview if she thought it was possible to have a “soulmate friendship” without a love component. Jada replied to this by saying;
“Absolutely! We have soulmates. Our children can be our soulmates. I think this kind of romanticized idea is like a ‘soulmate.’ There are all kinds of definitions of a soulmate.
“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.”
“It just wasn’t possible; there was no chemistry between us. Let me tell you, don’t think that ‘Pac and I, as 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.
“It was like, ‘Look, I’mma put y’all together, y’all are gonna be a dynamic duo, but I’mma tell you right now, I’mma make it so y’all are not gonna be able to get together.’ Cause that just wasn’t the purpose.”
