Will Smith And Jada Pinkett Smith Separated In 2016


The old rumor of Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett divorced was probably not far from the truth after Pinkett, In a recent interview, disclosed that she and Smith had been apart since 2016.

She admitted to NBC that despite the actors leading entirely different lives for seven years, they were not yet prepared to publicly acknowledge the news.

She claimed that they were “exhausted with trying” at the time they parted ways.

Despite continuing to live apart, the couple has no plans to get divorced.

In an interview with NBC, Pinkett Smith, 52, claimed she had made a vow to herself that she and Smith, 55, would never get divorced and that she has been unable to go back on it.

“I think we were both kind of just still stuck in our fantasy of what we thought the other person should be,” she said. The interview came ahead of the release of Pinkett Smith’s memoir, Worthy, next week.

When Smith stormed the Oscars stage and assaulted host Chris Rock while shrieking, “Keep my wife’s name out of your [expletive] mouth,” the duo made headlines.

After Rock made a joke about Pinkett Smith’s baldness, the incident occurred. The actress has alopecia, a disease that results in hair loss.

In a different interview, Pinkett Smith admitted to People that at first, she believed it to be a prank.

“It wasn’t until Will started to walk back to his chair that I even realised it wasn’t a skit.”

She said: “I’m going to be by his side but also allow him to have to figure this out for himself.”

When the duo appeared on Pinkett Smith’s Facebook show Red Table Talk to talk about Pinkett Smith’s “entanglement” with artist August Alsina, there was talk that the couple would get married in 2020.

Pinkett Smith and Smith first crossed paths in 1994 during an audition for Smith’s television series The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The two later wed in 1997.
