“I’ve had a lot of loss. So many of my close friends gone. They didn’t make it to 30. They didn’t make it past 25. A lot of people talk about my relationship with Pac and figure that out. That was a huge loss in my life,” Pinkett-Smith said.
During yesterday’s episode of #RedTableTalk, actress #JadaPinkettSmith, her daughter #WillowSmith and mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris discussed loss and mourning. When it was Jada’s turn, she opened up about how her friend #Tupac’s untimely death makes her angry because she thought he’d still be here.
She continued, “Because he was one of those people I expected to be here. My upset is more anger because I feel like he left me. And I know that’s not true and it’s a very selfish way to think about it… I really did believe he’d be here for the long run. And when I think about it I still get really mad.”
Still, the 46-year old believes that Tupac made his mark on the world. “He played his role…he did what he was meant to do…he’s an icon,” she said.
