During the episode, Crawford speaks to Jada Pinkett Smith about her close relationship with the late legendary singer Whitney Houston, which opened up a conversation for Jada to talk about her experienced with Pac, when he was alive.
While promoting her book A Song For You: My Life With Whitney Houston, Robyn reveals her relationship with Whitney was intimate in all aspects.
Crawford recounts a story where Whitney was jealous of an encounter between Robyn and a back-up dancer. She claimed Houston was apparently so irate she ripped up a message Crawford had written inside a Bible she gave to her.
Jada interjected and related that experience to one she had with Tupac. Pinkett Smith said, "That I understood, because of the complex relationship I’ve had with Pac in those moments of his, ‘Who’s that?!,’ knowing damn well there ain’t nothing like that between us.”
Smith continued “him feeling like, ‘you’re the only stability I got, I can’t afford for you to put that attention elsewhere.’ For him, it was, we were an anchor for each other. Anytime he felt like that anchor was threatened, oh my God."
