Last year I interviewed Jada Pinkett Smith, briefly. Our chat was primarily about her role in the TV series Gotham but I wanted to delve a little further. The 20th anniversary of Tupac Shakur’s death was coming up and I wondered if she would give me a quick comment on her thoughts about the loss of her friend. Her publicist shut the question down – which was a bummer – and I never got my answer.
Now the actress is opening up about her relationship with the late rapper. In doing so, she made a stunning revelation about her life before the Hollywood glitz and glamor.
