Jada Pinkett Smith’s latest preview for her upcoming memoir included a flashback with the late Tupac Shakur, dancing to her future husband Will Smith’s song, “Parents Just Don’t Understand.”

Pinkett Smith (52) released a short excerpt from her upcoming memoir Worthy on Instagram where she wrote about the moment she, Shakur and Smith (54) collided.

She included a video of her and Shakur dancing to the Grammy-winning 1988 hit Smith scored as one half of the duo DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince.

“Never in a million years would I have dreamed that the Fresh Prince and I would, um, get to know each other well,” wrote Pinkett Smith. “Never in a million years could I have imagined that three lives, their destinies, would be so intertwined.”

The video became “a tangible memory of the last time Pac and I were just kids together,” she wrote. “Pac and I belting out Parents Just Don’t Understand by Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince during our freshman year in high school. Who would have thought?”

Pinkett Smith later shared the entire video on Instagram. “Here’s part of the original video of Paco and I doing a terrible job of matching Parents Just Don’t Understand,” she captioned another post.

“You know, it’s so funny because now that I’m older, I understand better what it was between us,” Pinkett Smith told Stern, 69, explaining how their relationship never turned romantic. “When you have two young people who have very strong feelings, but there was no physical chemistry between us at all, and it wasn’t just for me – it was him.”
