Jada Pinkett Smith Told Tupac Not To Beat Up Will Smith Once They Started Dating: Report

Two weeks ago, Jada Pinkett Smith sent Twitter into a frenzy after her celebratory birthday post in honor of what would have been Tupac’s 50th birthday reminded everyone just how much love the actress and the legendary West Coast rapper had for each other during the 90s. Jada definitely got fans talking after sharing an archived poem that Tupac wrote for her on Instagram, but thanks to a new interview with former Outlawz rapper Napoleon, they’ll definitely be talking about the infamous love triangle once again.

In a recent sit-down with The Art Of Dialogue, Napoleon discusses his reaction to hearing about the news of Shock G’s untimely passing, and on a more light-hearted note, the now-motivational speaker also touched on Jada Pinkett Smith and Tupac’s close relationship. According to Hip-Hop Lately, Napoleon distinctly remembers Tupac mentioning Jada’s name after she had offended the rapper at the start of her relationship with Will Smith. She had reportedly told the All Eyez On Me rapper to keep his hands off of Will Smith, and her warning had bothered him to the core.
