Arsenio extolled the late rapper for being the first person to have believed in Jada as a star apart from her mother and she responded,

“Pac was one of the first male figures that i had in my life that saw the beauty and my talent and intelligence separated from sex” She clarified.

Jada explained further that Tupac stood in for her like a father figure as most fathers will do for their daughters,

“That’s something that a young girl gets from her father, I didn’t have that. Pac was the first one that it wasn’t about sex it was about, ‘You, you’re a beautiful woman, you’re talented, you’re strong, I respect you and you’re my girl. You’re going to sit right here, I’m going to protect you.”
