In a recent Instagram post, popular Hot 97 DJ Funk Flex expressed his disapproval of Jada Pinkett Smith’s reaction to the recent arrest of Duane “Keefe D” Davis, an alleged killer of Tupac Shakur. Flex, it seems, took issue with Jada’s heartfelt tribute to her old friend 2Pac.
Jada Pinkett Smith, known for her connection with 2Pac since her high school days at Baltimore School for the Arts, responded to the news of Davis’s arrest with an Instagram message. In her post, she expressed a desire for answers and closure, accompanied by the poignant phrase, “R.I.P. Pac.” This heartfelt tribute to her dear friend, who passed away tragically years ago, was met with mixed reactions.
Funk Flex, known for his outspoken nature, decided to voice his opinion on Jada’s post. He shared a screenshot of a TMZ headline featuring Jada’s message and commented, “This is the worst type of woman! Always focused on an old guy! Stay focused on Will! He’s alive and here!” This remark seemed to suggest that Flex believes it’s inappropriate for a married woman to mourn an old friend of the opposite gender.
To better understand this situation, it’s essential to delve into the complex history between Jada Pinkett Smith, 2Pac, and her husband, Will Smith. In his 2021 memoir, Will Smith admitted that he struggled with jealousy in the early stages of his relationship with Jada due to the deep connection she shared with 2Pac. Will candidly expressed feeling inferior, saying, “I hated that I wasn’t what he was in the world, and I suffered a raging jealousy.”
Jada’s perspective on 2Pac is equally significant. She has described their relationship as one of a kind, akin to a brother and father figure. Her sentiments about 2Pac highlight the profound bond they shared, which she cherishes to this day.
Do you believe Flex has a valid point?
