Jada Pinkett Smith at Good Morning America

All hail queen Jada Pinkett Smith!

The 43-year-old beauty has been busy promoting her new film Magic Mike XXL. As we previously reported, Jada chopped it up about her open relationship with her husband Will Smith, but she also talked about the other love of her life — Tupac.

Although he’s been gone for 20 years, Jada still gets emotional when speaking about him. When asked about the intensity of the relationship, Jada revealed:

You know, it’s so funny. Now being older, I have more of an understanding of what that was between us. When you have two young people that have very strong feelings, but there is no physical chemistry between us at all. And it wasn’t even just for me! It was him too. There was a time when I was like, ‘Just kiss me! Let’s just see how this goes.’ And when I tell you it had to be the most disgusting kiss for us both.

She then continued saying that it probably wasn’t meant to be, stating:

The only way I can put it is that the higher power didn’t want that. If Pac and I had any kind of sexual chemistry, we might have killed each other because we were both so passionate. And you know, we loved deeply. It was hard enough with us just being friends. We had a very volatile relationship.

Jada revealed how their lives changed once she moved to L.A while he was in jail:

There was a lot of things that transpired once he went to jail. It was really once he came out that he changed quite a bit. Jail was a very difficult experience for him, and of course, we were on two sides of the spectrum. Pac and I have always had very intense conversations [laughs]. If we disagree with each other, we disagree hardcore.

Jada also mentioned how they went several years without talking before he was gunned down and how she didn’t have the opportunity to make amends:

I don’t think I was guilty as much as I felt just sadness, for not having the opportunity to tell him that I loved him. But, I know he knew that. It wasn’t the first time that we had had a bad argument and stopped speaking. That was a constant in our relationship. It definitely taught me a lesson, which is life is too short. Do not let disagreements stand in between you and people that you love and care about.

Jada ended that portion on an emotional note:

You know, I love him.
