    I completely understand. Its hard to regain that friendship once its lost, however it is just to show u that life is too short for disputes and selfishness. Forgive, accept and love one another.

      I wonder if Jada being so sensitive and passionate about Pac ever bothers Will at all? I would love to hear his thoughts on her and Pac’s relationship and how or if it affects theirs in anyway.

          Baltimore! Not just violence & bad press generate from my hometown. Theres talent & history here!

          Anywho. Im a Pac lover. It was always Pac over B.I.G (although both were talented) for me because of the content. I feel, as a grown woman, that it is almost impossible to have a platonic male/female relationship on both sides idc what anyone says. She may feel the kiss was gross & he may have held on to it with fond memory. You may feel you’re totally in the friend zone, while your male bestie is subconsciously comparing all of his gf’s to your dynamic. Idk them personally I’m just speaking from experience.

          Me and my male cousin had a bond like this. We could talk all night long, he would wake me up when I fell asleep and continue to talk my ears off! The love I had/have for him is indescribable. I can totally relate to Jada and I understand what a platonic, non sexual relationship feels like. It literally feels likeyour soul connects with eachother. My cousin was such a good, innocent, kind funny human being, wherever there was sorrow he was the one who got everyone together make us laugh and forget about everything. A true angel on earth. He passed away way too early at 19 years old. Im 26 now and to this day I cant think too long about him. I pray that one day I will find another soulmate I can spend my life with. A relationship/bond like this I have yet to find again. I pray that one day i get to experience a love like that again.

          I think Will just respects and understands that Pac was someone very special to Jada and he probably will never be replaced, he can’t be mad at that, especially considering their relationship was before him and her married. What I wonder is would Jada have become Mrs Smith if Pac was still alive.

        I to wonder the same thing….I love pac just as much as any fan, he’s a legend. But I feel there was more than what she says it was! Body language all day lol! if I was married for 10+ years and had kids I would respect my husband enough to not to keep mentioning My ex multiple times! Just me I don’t hear will speaking about his ex’s….?

        I know it would bother me for my wife to be this openly passionate and even TEARY when she talks about another man. Not once, not twice, but a couple of time every year… Not trying to start something, I’m just noting that my human jealous instict would sure kick in…. Anywho, I know how Jada feels. Once was in a similar situation, never told someone I loved them until the chance was gone, & I still think about it today. Wish this would make me more spontaneous and ‘in the moment’, but it doesn’t. I’m still not very open about my feelings cos i’d rather protect myself than live at a high pace cos ‘life is short’. Ciao yall….

          I doubt it, it seems like it was just a best friend kind of love between them. will is a grown a** man they have two children together and have been married for how long? I doubt he gets mad about someone his wife use to care for

        2. brookieboo says:

          He is a grown a** man that’s been married to that woman for years its no way he should feel some type of way over a deceased man that his wife was strictly friends with

      4. smooches says:

        It shouldn’t bother him. Pac is deceased. Just because it’s been 20 years doesn’t mean the pain isnt the same as it was when he passed away the first year. I had a childhood friend who was murdered 8 years ago and I still love him to this day. Sometimes my boyfriend is the shoulder I lean when I get emotional behind his death. I miss my friend.

        @Nope How? She just stated that there was no chemistry between them. She truly loved him as a friend.

      6. MOMOMONEY says:

        I doubt Will feels any jealousy because Jada is just as or more passionate about her marriage and kids.

      9. Panty Raid says:

        Me too. I know I would feel some type of way if I was married and my husband got all emotional over some other woman. Dead or alive. Especially if my child wrote a letter like Willows. I’m not wrapped to tight so I would probably ask if he wanted me tobdig a hole for him next to this woman he can’t seem to get over. I can be really petty at times. Lol

      10. Tam says:

        I don’t think it bothers Will at all! Everyone has past and she can’t erase loving someone just because she married. She was clear there was NO chemistry and Will I believe understands that and believes her.

        jada a superstar ?? i doubt it , her stardom is due to Will be a superstar, and all she always talk about is Tupac, Will, and relationship, her career and talent to me is pretty flat.

        People need to GET OVER Biggie and Tupac!!!! All they did was rap about killing their own Black brothers and having threesomes! (ESPECIALLY BIGGIE)! The young teen boys of that time bought into that junk and tried to emulate what they heard and now the ground is saturated with their blood and their lives are ruined with them spending YEARS in prison while Tupac and Biggie and other gangster rappers laughed all the way to the bank! These brothers can’t even get a job when they get out of prison. F Tupac and Biggie!!!!

        1. Q.U.E.E.N says:

          The same with anything now, you hear what you want to hear. Tupac had Dear Mama and Keep Your Hea Up which were both about respect and surviving and things getting better and love. Tupacs poetry had NOTHING to do with the thug lifestyle. It was depression, love, and passion. But you and and umpteen number of people choose to look at rappers and rap as bad people. They rapped about what they knew. Tupac knew the lifestyle he grew up in, and he also knew how he thought the world should be.

          I can’t really defend Biggie because I didn’t listen to him like that. But my FAVORITE rap song of all time is Suicidal Thoughts, because I’ve had them. And I could tell that he really was hurting and didn’t feel he was worth it by that song. But continue to think rappers aren’t sh*t.

        2. EvaMimz says:

          LMAO. You sound as salty and ridiculous as Bill O’reilly does when he starts blaming all of the youth’s problems on Beyonce and other black entertainers. I won’t be so daft as to claim their lifestyles don’t have a cultural influence on this idle youth, but it remains YOUR responsibility to raise your children. Raise your sons. Raise your daughters. Teach then right from wrong and you’ll never have to spend a day worrying about what them rappers doing boo boo….

    5. Q.U.E.E.N says:

      I get sad every time Jada talks about Pac because you can feel how much she loves him and that’s scary. I want to meet someone that I could love like that, but I’m afraid of losing that person.

    6. Jessy says:

      I understand how she feels too in regards to losing someone dear without being able to make amends.

      In regards to Pac, he touched my soul and I didn’t even know him. I find it so hard to listen to his music (especially the deep stuff) without still feeling emotional and wondering how much he would have changed/grown as a person. So I can only imagine how much he touched her.

  2. Realistically says:

    Tupac’s energy >>>

    I always thought he was killed by the lifestyle he chose to adopt to survive/reach the people he wanted to help. I really wish he was still here … the world would be so much different.

    “I never said I would change the world, but I guarantee you that I will spark the brain that will change the world.”

        LOL I thought that too. But I know there would be NO WAY Tupac would be quiet on the 1st Black President and Trayvon Martin.

  7. Girl please... says:

    I hear ya Jada, lol

    BUT um-R-ah…that one episode from A Different World with you and Piccolo told me every damn thing there was/is to know about you and Pac. Whew!!!

    Their chemistry was magical. They had that thing Taraji and Terrance have…

    I really want to believe that a man can value a woman he loves/deeply cares for as just a friend…lol I wish I could.

    And if something did go down romantically between Pac and Jada please believe she will take it to her grave. He sure did.

    1. Ash G says:

      Peach. Lol. It would’ve figured itself eventually if SOMEHOW it never happened while they were young. They both probably had to grow up a little but never got a chance to get better.

    2. Mya says:

      LOL! I remember that episode and felt exactly the same way. Pac was a ladies man, I think Jada was THE ONE on many levels, friend, maybe a little bit more, and set the precedent for any woman that came into his life. I do think it is possible to have that type of friendship, but difficult to keep a fine line drawn between you and that other person. I have a friendship with a male that reminds me SO MUCH of them, we love each other, we fight/argue, we stop speaking, the magnetism between us is CRAZY but we can never take it to the next level because the passion is just too intense I think we would probably drive each other crazy. But I never say never…it may change one day.

      1. Girl please... says:

        Bay-Bae! The way Pac looked at her in that episode and the way Stevie Wonder could even see how she tried to fight it?! That cute little smirk she always made, her eyes telling his…”you know what it is” lol wow!

        Yes ma’am Jada we know what was up! And if they were here now together again, I’d be here for it all!
        Love Will don’t get me wrong but, Pac seems like the only one who could/would challenge Jada. Mentally.

        Will may have more box office success but we all know who wears the pants in that relationship. Don’t believe me? Just watch their interviews together lol, camera doesn’t lie.

  13. Tracey says:

    I am not fully buying the no physical attraction thing. The body language between them was entirely too intimate. They were ALWAYS touching, embracing each other. Doesn’t add up. I feel ‘Pac was indeed her love lost, but for some reason she is not entirely honest about the relationship. And how odd is it that Willow wrote “…come back so mommy and me can be happy.”

    (0)
    1. Whyyyyy says:

      So weird like how sad are you about it that even your kids feel it. I wish my husband would be depressed about a “friend” who died 20 years ago. I really want to undeestand but I dont.

      1. carpediem says:

        Willow wrote that note when she was very young I believe. Could have been having a conversation with her mom about her relationship with Pac. Jada probably started crying and Willow probably wanted to make her feel better so she wrote pac a note… kids will do whatever to make their parents happy especially when they’re young like that.

  14. K. Nichole says:

    I completely understand. There’s one man that I’ve intensely had a connection with since we met in high. Never had sex, because our feelings were too intense and we were too honest with each other about our lives.

    Ten years later he’s oddly my soulmate. Our stubborn personalities pushed us further and further apart. It also made us agree to never try a relationship because we would fight worse than a married couple… Now, I know that it was just our feelings of never giving it a shot. We both have families and have to stay away from each other, which is so sad. It’s like we have this instant emotional affair. We both hate that we havechildren with other people. IIt’s a blatant mess I tell you.

    Love is such a complicated thing. I feel like Jada and PAC would’ve worked once their lives matched up and they had time to settle in their celebrity if he had not passed. So sad… I know that feeling.

    1. T. T. says:

      Girl shut your mouth! I SWEAR to you I have the exact same situation with my friend. The saddest part of all is I don’t ever thing I’ll ever be truly as happy as I can be since I can’t be with him. I don’t think there’s any other man for me on this planet except him! Complicated but life.

  16. Willow’s letter to Tupac. Cute and a bit strange

    (0)
  17. That’s an intense friendship. That’s what a real soulmate is. A soulmate is a mirror of yourself. It is a very violate relationship because of the passion you both feel. It is usually platonic and it hurts, physically hurt when they’re away from you.

      it feels like jada is always telling this story in 1 way or another. its fascinating though…that they had this type of relationship. i believe her when she says it was strictly platonic. also hv a pac type of friend…and thats all it is…we homies til the end. i pray for her healing to forgive herself!!

    There’s a difference between soulmates and life partners. Every once in a while, you find both in a person; however, the two aren’t mutually exclusive.

  29. But they were just FRIENDS, nothing romantic or sexual happened. I am sure Will understands, Pac was more like a brother to her

    I get that but how is ur best friend ur soulmate and why would u keep saying that when u have a husband now

  31. The heart is a messed up thing. Loads of us are in relationships where we don’t truly love the person, but because we just cannot have the person our heart truly desires for whatever reason,we, just have to bury that love alive and move on. Even though pac is history he holds the top stop in her heart.

    (0)
  32. People can have soul mates in a friend, my definition of soulmate is someone u r so totally in sync with that u know that god meant for you n them to have a relationship, it doesn’t have to be a romantic relationship! Had he lived maybe her n will wouldn’t be together, but PAC is gone so will has no worries!

    (0)
  33. Jada you need to quit!! You had relations with this guy and your husband is stupid for allowing you to speak this way about another man and you don’t even speak that passionately about him…this interview was a mess and so disrespectful on so many levels..FRIEND MY ASS!!

    1. Michelle says:

      One how much must somebody hate themselves to be jelouse of a ghost? Two does Jada seem like the type that would let a man tell her what to say? Three do you know how big of a bitch Will would look like hating on a dead ex?

  41. Orgasm Blush says:

    I totally understand Jada. I think she feels the “What if?” with life. What if he had not died so abruptly and they DID give their relationship a chance? I think the reason they never tried was because they knew it would be too intense and there could be no turning back. All good relationships have the foundation of being friends first. If things go left, the chances of still having that amazing friendship would be very slim. I don’t think either of them were willingly to risk that at the time. Who knows though? What if they both were coming to their senses and were willingly to take that leap of love before he died? Lol I’m a sucker for real romance. A love you can’t ever get over. Will is okay though. He knows Jada loves him.

    I tear up EVERY TIME she speaks on their relationship because I can relate. And trust me she is 100% accurate when she said turning their relationship into a romantic one would ruin the essence of what they were and had. Unfortunately I found after the fact with my “Pac” that we shouldn’t had taken it there. It ruined us beyond repair.
