Will Smith is opening about his feelings towards Jada Pinkett’s relationship with the late 2Pac.

On an interview with “The Breakfast Club,” he spoke about how he was jealous of his wife’s relationship with the “California Love” rapper.

Charlamagne asked him directly if he ever felt jealous of 2Pac’s relationship with his wife and Smith replied, “Oh, fuck yeah. Oh my God, that dude. And you know that was in the early days, too. That was a big regret for me because I could never open up to interact with Pac.”

Smith also talked about his relationship with 2Pac. “We had a little bit of a thing because they grew up together and they loved each other but they never had a sexual relationship,” Smith added. “But then come into that age where now that was a possibility, and Jada was with me, so Pac had a little thing on that. But she just loved him, he was the image of perfection but she was with the Fresh Prince. We were in the room a couple times together, I couldn’t speak to him and he wasn’t going to speak to me if I don’t speak to him … I couldn’t handle it. I was this soft rapper from Philly and he was Pac. I was deeply, deeply insecure, and I wasn’t man enough to handle that relationship.”

During an interview with MTV last year, Pinkett spoke about how she still thinks about Pac everyday.

She said, “There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about Pac. I think about him every single day.”

Like Smith mentioned in the interview, the “Red Table Talk” host also revealed that her friendship with Pac was strictly platonic aside from one “disgusting kiss.”
