“If there is such a thing as past lives, I definitely think that Pac and I have traveled a few together,” she said when asked if she ever regretted not taking things to the next level with the musician, before replying, “It just wasn’t possible.”

“There was no chemistry between us,” she explained. The Red Table Talk alum called their connection a “friendship-love chemistry” and shared that having a future together “wasn’t the purpose.”

“It was like God made us that way,” she continued.” It was like, look, I’m going to put y’all together, right? Y’all are going to be a dynamic duo. But I’m going to tell you right now, I’m going to make it so y’all are not going to be able to get together ’cause that just wasn’t the purpose.”

“We’re still figuring it out,” she said. “A lot has happened. The thing about relationships is that it’s constantly moving. Relationships are, it’s an organism. It’s its own thing. It’s constantly shifting and constantly moving. There’s a lot that’s transpired in the last two years, and so we’ve been doing some really heavy-duty work together.”

The two are parents to son Jaden, 25, and daughter Willow, 22. The Emancipation actor also shares son Trey, 30, with ex-wife Sheree Zampino.
