It takes a big man to admit his insecurities in his woman having a tight platonic bond with her guy friend. Will Smith did just that on The Breakfast Club. Will had Jada as his woman, but the charming, bad boy, talented and good looks of the late Tupac Shakur back in the day left Will feeling insecure.
When asked if he was ever jealous of the love Jada had for Tupac, Will had this to say:
Ah, oh…f**k yeah. I could never open up to interact with Pac. We had a little bit of thing right, because they grew up together. They loved each other., but they never had a sexual relationship, but they had come into that age where now where that was a possibility. Then Jada was with me.
Pac had a little thing on that, but she just loved him. Like, he was the image of perfection but she was with the Fresh Prince. We were in the room together a couple times I couldn’t speak to him, you know. He wasn’t going to speak to me if I wasn’t going to speak to him.
Will went on in saying that Jada would tell him that he and Pac were so smiliar in regards to personality. Jada according to Will said to him that he would just love Pac if he was open to understanding him. Will admits that it was a huge regret on his part in not being able to handle the step up. Will says he was this soft philly rapper while Pac was so explosive. Will says he was deeply, deeply insecure and that he was not man enough to handle the situation.
Thoughts, are you or have you ever been jealous of your partner’s relationship with a friend whom he or she is VERY close to ?
