Actress Jada Pinkett Smith continues to make headlines as she promotes her memoir, “Worthy”. In a recent interview with “Extra” Special Correspondent Carlos Greer, Jada opened up about her deep and complex relationship with the legendary rapper Tupac Shakur.
The bond between Jada and Tupac dates back to their time as students at the Baltimore School of Arts. In a surprising revelation, Jada disclosed that following Tupac’s tragic death in a 1996 drive-by shooting in Las Vegas, Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight sent her Tupac’s ashes. This revelation has left many questioning the motive behind such an unusual gesture.
Jada, emotionally recalling the moment she received Tupac’s ashes, described it as a “really devastating moment.” The rapper’s ashes arrived in a small cardboard box, and the experience was profoundly impactful on her. She expressed a sense of rage about the entire situation, understandably overwhelmed by the loss of her dear friend.
While Suge Knight’s delivery of Tupac’s ashes may have appeared somewhat casual, Jada refrained from making assumptions about his intentions. She acknowledged the prevalence of misconceptions in her own life, emphasizing that there is often more to a story than what meets the eye.
The astonishing revelation leaves many wondering about the reasoning behind Suge Knight’s decision to send Tupac’s ashes to Jada, given that at the time of his death, Tupac had immediate family, including a mother, sister, and brother. This new layer of the Tupac saga adds a captivating dimension to the enduring legacy of the iconic rapper.
