Jada Pinkett Smith has made several confessions about her marriage to Will Smith while doing the press rounds. Among the most surprising was the revelation she and the blockbuster movie star have been separated since 2016. While Pinkett Smith confirmed it wasn’t “a divorce on paper,” she explained they are only married to maintain appearances.
“By the time we got to 2016, we were just exhausted with trying,” she said. “I think we were both kind of just still stuck in our fantasy of what we thought the other person should be.” When asked why the couple didn’t publicly announce the news, Pinkett Smith replied they weren’t “ready yet” and “still trying to figure out, between the two of us, how to be in partnership.”
Pinkett Smith also talked about the infamous Oscars slap at the 2022 Academy Awards, saying she was surprised to hear Will Smith call her his “wife” when it was a term that hadn’t used in years. She also talks about it in the book.
“We had been living separate lives and were there as family, not as husband and wife,” she writes. “But when I hear Will yell ‘wife’ in the chaos of the moment, an internal shift of Oh s— . . . I am his wife! happens instantly. I’m aware that I’m at the Oscars in a beautiful but very heavy forest-green dress with a high neck, a zipper bodice, and a train a thousand miles long, and I’ve had to stay seated all evening. But no matter how much growth I’ve recently experienced, my old mechanisms are driving, and my mind is racing with, Oh s###, if I have to fight or run, I’m done! I can’t even get up!”
Elsewhere in her multitude of interviews, Pinkett Smith claimed Tupac Shakur suffered from alopecia and that he once proposed to her while serving time at Rikers Island. She also said Chris Rock hit on her amid Will Smith divorce rumors and called her marriage to Smith a “divine assignment.”
During a recent interview with PEOPLE, Jada Pinkett Smith spoke openly about her drug-dealing past as a teen growing up in Baltimore.
“I knew that anything that I needed was something I needed to provide for,” she explained. “I decided to sell drugs.”
“Growing up, the drug dealers were the ones that had affluence,” Smith added. “That’s what we readily saw as success. And so for me, considering my circumstances at the time, my mother was not doing well. She was a high-functioning heroin addict. We didn’t have the things that we should have. The home we lived in was not taken care of.”
Is It wasn’t just 50 Cent who had something to say about Jada Pinkett Smith dealing drugs.
The Dipset rapper, Jim Jones took to Instagram Live over the weekend, calling on one of her old customers to speak out.
“If you sold crack in the nineties, nine times out of ten, there’s still some crackheads in the neighbourhood that can vouch that you were selling that butter,” Jim Jones said. “I don’t know where Jada grew up at, but we need to go check and see if they got some fiends that can verify, validify that she was selling that she had that butter on the block for sale.”
