Jada Pinkett-Smith opened up about her friendship with Tupac Shakur, saying that she is angry because she thought he would still be here. During Monday’s (May 14th) episode of Red Table Talk, she spoke with her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, and daughter, Willow, about surviving loss. On ‘Pac, she said, “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.”

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.”

  • Jada added, “He played his role…he did what he was meant to do…he’s an icon.”
