She also claimed they knew each other from a past life

Just days on from confirming her separation from Will Smith seven years ago, Jada Pinkett Smith has now opened up about her ‘soulmate’ Tupac Shakur.

On Wednesday (October 11) Smith confirmed the news that her and Smith had been separated since 2016.

She said that despite being married in 1997, they have lived “completely separate lives” for the last seven years.

While the pair are still legally married, Pinkett Smith did claim they are not romantically together.

The news broke as Pinkett Smith was promoting her upcoming memoir, Worthy, and while promoting the book she has also opened up about her ‘soulmate’ Tupac Shakur.

In an interview with RollingOut, Jada revealed that she and the legendary hip hop star had “friendship” and “love” but no physical chemistry.

Pinkett Smith also suggested that they had “traveled” together in past lives.

When Jada was asked if she regretted deciding not to pursue Tupac romantically, she said: “It just wasn’t possible. There was no chemistry between us.”

However RollingOut editor, Christal Jordan, then questioned Jada previously referring to Tupac as her soulmate asking how this is possible without their being romance.

Jada explained: “Absolutely, we have soulmates, our children can be our soulmates. I think this kind of romanticized idea of like a soulmate – there’s all kinds of definitions of soulmates.”

Pinkett Smith then claimed she felt she knew Tupac from another life, saying: “If there is such a thing as past lives, I definitely think Pac and I have traveled a few together, you know, in various forms.”

Tupac Shakur was only 25 when he was gunned down at a red light at East Flamingo Road and Koval Lane, Las Vegas. He had been to a Mike Tyson fight that night.

Despite being rushed to hospital, Tupac succumbed to his injuries and died shortly after.

Though 27 years have now passed since Tupac’s deaths, it was just a matter of weeks ago when the first arrest was made.

Duane Keith “Keffe D” Davis, 60, has since been charged with the murder of one of hip hop’s most iconic sons.
