While promoting Girls Trip during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday night, Jada Pinkett Smith was asked about the “craziest rumor” she’s heard about her family. Now, you might think the craziest rumor about the Pinkett Smiths is that they’re secret Scientologists. But that’s not really that unbelievable when you remember some of the stuff that has been said in the past by Jaden Smith.
Instead, Jada brought up that other long-running rumor, the one about her and Will Smith being swingers. The rumor that Will and Jada engage in Trading Partners action is as deep rooted in Hollywood folklore as Richard Gere and the gerbil, or the rumor known only to me that Tom Cruise is just four weasels stacked on top of each other. Jada says no way, there’s no swinging in the Pinkett Smith household. But she wishes!
“Jeez, the craziest rumor? That Will and I are swingers. That’s the craziest one. It’s constant. And I’m like ‘Yo, I wish!'”
“I wish“? Why do I get the feeling this is some kind of weird sexual Aladdin-themed role play between Jada and her real-life Genie.
Jada’s Girls Trip co-star Queen Latifah then made it 100% funnier by joking: “I’ve always admired that about y’all. Don’t take away my – you know? I compare you with every relationship I’m in. It’s the perfect way!” Who knew Queen Latifah was a secret freaky?
So Jada and Will have not or never have been swingers (to quote Meryl in nun drag, “I have such doubts“). But did you know: Jada was once a drug dealer? Fun allegedly true fact! Jada appeared on SiriusXM’s Sway’s Universe (via Los Angeles Times) on Wednesday, and she talked again about her friendship with Tupac. She didn’t elaborate too much, because she claims she wants to write a book, but she says she met Tupac on their first day of high school at Baltimore School of the Arts. According to Jada, she was getting out of “the life” and Tupac was making his way in. She says her friendship with Tupac wasn’t about romance, but “survival.”
Part of Jada’s survival was apparently dealing drugs. Jada doesn’t say what she was selling, but since it was high school, I’m going to guess weed. Although if it was anything like my high school, it might have been horse tranquilizers. Regardless, Jada would have been good at selling anything: weed, fake IDs, test answers. She’s so tiny, she could slip in through a seam in your backpack, grab the money, leave the stuff, and slip out again without a single hall monitor noticing!
