Willow Smith, teenage daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, remembered her mom’s late best friend and rapper Tupac Shakur, on his 44th birthday. The music scion misses her uncle Pac.
According to US Weekly Willow Smith remembered rapper Tupac Shakur, her mom Jada Pinkett Smith’s late best friend, on his 44th birthday on Tuesday, June 16.
“Happy Birthday, Pac,” Willow wrote on Instagram, reports the source.
The source said that the 14-year-old Willow also posted two throwback photos of her mother embracing her old friend, and a sweet letter that was written by her, on social media.
“Dear Tupac, I know you are alive someplace I think that my mommy really misses you. Can you please come back so mom and me can be happy! I wish you were here… I really do. Love, Willow,” she wrote in the letter.
The source also added that Willow paid tribute to Tupac’s birthday several weeks after Jada, 43, affectionately remembered her late friend on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM Satellite Radio show.
Pinkett Smith said that she met the “Changes” rapper Shakur in ’80s, while attending the Baltimore School for the Arts.
“I’ve had never in my life met a person like Pac. He had so much charisma,” said the “Gotham” star.
She said that they both climbed to fame together, and that their paths diverged when Tupac went to prison in 1995 for sexually abusing a fan. She also added that she was not in agreement with the destructive direction he was taking, which made him feel that she had changed and gone Hollywood. She further added that their friendship broke because of this very hardcore disagreement, before Shakur was murdered in Las Vegas in 1996.
“Life is too short” and “Do not let disagreements stand in between you and people that you love,” concluded Mrs. Will Smith.
Willow Smith and her mom Jada Pinkett Smith surely miss Tupac Shakur a lot.
