Will Smith is a rare sight on the red carpet, but whenever he appeared, he was almost always accompanied by his wife. However, it has now been revealed that this marriage, which seemed so solid from the outside, hasn't been that way for a long time.
Jada confessed that the attempts to deal with relationship issues exhausted both her and Will so much that they decided to part ways in 2016 and haven't lived together since.
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 star actor's partner assured there's no talk of an official divorce. They could either start afresh or simply remain married on paper.
I think we were both kind of just still stuck in our fantasy of what we thought the other person should be... We will work through ... whatever.Jada shared. She added that she'll stand by her husband but will let him figure things out on his own.
Jada also mentioned the Oscar incident where Will punched host Chris Rock in response to a bad joke about Jada. She didn't think her husband would seriously hit the host:
I was like, ‘There’s no way that Will hit him. It wasn’t until Will started to walk back to his chair that I even realized it wasn’t a skit.
