While we've all heard celebs own up to their past troubles -- like issues with alcohol and narcotics -- this bit of tea has us doing a double take. Jada Pinkett Smith revealed she was once a drug dealer, proving people have many layers.


The 45-year-old stopped by Sway's Universe to dish about her Girls Trip movie and her life with late hip-hop icon Tupac Shakur. And just when you thought Jada was going to talk business as usual, this kween dropped a bomb that made everyone stop and take pause.

"One of the things that's very interesting that I've never really said before is that when I first met Pac, when we first met, I was a drug dealer. Yes," Pinkett Smith reveals to Sway during her interview.

Hinting at a possible memoir in the future, Jada hopes her revelation will set the record straight about one of the many ties that united her with Pac -- that didn't include romance.

She continues:

"Something very bad happened to me. As I was coming out of the life, he was going more into the life. And so I've been having kind of an existential crisis around Pac ... there was a point in which we met and then we kind of were going our separate ways. And I just felt like, 'Okay, God, one day you're going to do for Pac what you did for me, which is you saved me.' And that just never happened for him. And that is something that I am constantly having to confront."

Since Jada divulged her past days as a pusher, the Internet couldn't help but sound off.

"Jada must have been the hottest drug dealer on the block," one YouTube commenter responded to the Sway's Universe interview.

"Jada was a dealer? Holy sh*t," wrote another.

While most are shocked to hear the words "Jada" and "drug dealer" used in the same sentence, one person thinks the story is complete BS.

"So now she was a drug dealer?" questions a commenter. "Sounds like a publicity stunt."

Yeah ... okay.

If there's one thing this Baltimore native is, it's real. One can only hope Jada's truth encourages someone in the lifestyle to get out and realize there is light at the end of the tunnel.
