Will Smith is opening up about some of his past insecurities in his marriage with Jada Pinkett Smith.
While the pair have been married since 1997, Will admits Jada’s relationship with the late Tupac made him “deeply, deeply insecure.”
The actor stopped by “The Breakfast Club” with his “Bad Boys For Life” co-star Martin Lawrence and got real about those insecurities and how he got over it.
“[Me and Tupac] had a little bit of a thing because [Tupac and Jada] grew up together, and they loved each other, but they never had a sexual relationship,” Will explained. “But, they had come into that age where now that was a possibility, and then Jada was with me. Pac had a little thing on that, but she just loved him! He was the image of perfection, but she was with ‘The Fresh Prince’.”
Will also admitted, “I was deeply, deeply insecure, and I wasn’t man enough to handle that relationship.”
Adding, “That was a big regret for me because I could never open up to interact with Pac.”
Tupac was assassinated a year before Will and Jada got married.
The actor’s highly anticipated “Bad Boys” sequel hits big screens on Jan. 16.
