Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith

In a recent interview, Jada Pinkett Smith opened up about her and husband Will Smith’s separation, a revelation that has taken many by surprise. The Hollywood power couple, known for their strong bond and enduring relationship, has been living separate lives for seven years, a fact they kept private until now.

The confession was made during an interview with NBC, where Jada Pinkett Smith candidly shared the details of their unique relationship. She admitted that by the time they separated in 2016, both she and Will Smith were feeling “exhausted with trying.” Despite their separation, the couple have no plans to get a divorce, and they continue to lead separate lives while maintaining their connection.

Pinkett Smith, at 52 years old, revealed that she had made a promise to herself never to divorce her husband, and it is a promise she intends to keep. She explained that they were both trapped in a fantasy of what they thought the other person should be, which contributed to their decision to separate.

This interview comes just before the release of Jada Pinkett Smith’s memoir, titled “Worthy,” which is set to launch next week. The memoir promises to provide readers with an intimate look into her life, her relationship with Will Smith, and her personal journey.



The couple made headlines last year when Will Smith unexpectedly stormed the stage at the Oscars, slapping host Chris Rock in response to a joke made about Jada Pinkett Smith being bald. The actress has been open about her struggle with alopecia, a condition causing hair loss.

In a separate interview with People magazine, Jada revealed her initial confusion during the Oscar incident, believing it was part of a planned joke. She noted that it wasn’t until Will started to walk back to his seat that she realized it wasn’t staged. She expressed her intention to support her husband through the aftermath of the incident, allowing him to figure it out on his own.

Speculation about the state of the couple’s marriage had arisen in 2020 when they addressed Jada Pinkett Smith’s “entanglement” with artist August Alsina on her Facebook show, Red Table Talk. The couple’s relationship has faced public scrutiny and speculation over the years, but their latest revelation sheds new light on the dynamics of their long-lasting partnership.

Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith’s love story began in 1994 when she auditioned for a role on Will’s hit show, “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” The two married in 1997 and share two children, Jaden Smith and Willow Smith, in addition to Trey Smith, Will Smith’s son from his first marriage to Sheree Zampino.

The revelation of their separation since 2016 adds a new chapter to their remarkable journey as a couple, highlighting the complexities of love, commitment, and personal growth in the public eye. It remains to be seen how this revelation will impact their relationship and careers as they continue to navigate the unique challenges of life in the spotlight.
