It appears Corey Holcomb didn’t get Will Smith’s memo to keep Jada Pinkett’s name “out of his fucking mouth (or just doesn’t care). The Corey Holcomb 5150 Show host had some controversial takes on Pinkett’s relationship with the late Tupac Shakur in a recent episode, suggesting the Death Row legend never wanted the actress in the first place.
According to Holcomb, 2Pac would be rolling over in his grave if he knew Pinkett was telling people they had an intimate love affair.
“This whole 2Pac thing has gone too far,” he said. “Everybody saw how 2Pac was. Why is she actin’ like 2Pac would have been with her? 2Pac would have been said, ‘Look, bitch. You ain’t got nothin’ else to offer but your funky ass. Wonder why they call you bitch? Have you ever heard 2Pac’s music? 2Pac would not tolerate someone like that on his shoulder.”
When one of Holcomb’s co-hosts pointed out 2Pac supposedly never had sex with Pinkett, he acted surprised.
“She said he ain’t never fuck her?” he asked. “This bitch just ran with an imaginary story to her daughter. I saw that letter her daughter so-called wrote. I’m like, ‘What an awful person.’ You poisoned your kid’s mind with a man that — if Marcus is right — didn’t even fuck you. You claiming 2Pac, you just name-droppin’. 2Pac probably like, ‘Bitch, stop tellin’ muthafuckas that I was your friend. God damn. I can’t believe the world really allows this stuff.”
The letter Holcomb is referring to is a note to ‘Pac from Pinkett and Smith’s then 11-year-old daughter Willow that read, “I know you are alive someplace. I think that my mommy really misses you. Can you please come back so mommy and me can be happy! I wish you were here. I really do!”
2Pac and Pinketts’ relationship stretches back to the 1980s when the two teens met at Baltimore School for the Arts. While Pinkett has always maintained their friendship was strictly platonic, she often trends any time 2Pac has a birthday, anniversary or other significant milestone, making it seem like there was more to their story.
But Ice Cube’s protégé Yo-Yo, who dated 2Pac in the past, denied Pinkett was the love of his life. After all, 2Pac was undeniably a ladies man.
“2Pac had a love for Jada but he had a love for women,” she said. “Anyone he dealt with he loved. He had many loves. He loved sincerely and if he gave you a piece of him you would remember. He probably slept with some of my friends, but we all love him. He had a rule for me that we couldn’t hang out too much on the road, but he would always sneak my sister out.
“I’d wake up in the middle of the night and she’d be gone, I would beep him and beep her, and they wouldn’t answer and I would be like stop taking my sister out. I’m responsible for her.”
