Will Smith Open Marriage and about their Divorce Podcast
In one episode of Jay Shetty’s podcast, Actor Will Smith admitted he was in an open marriage with Jada Pinkett Smith and has been maintaining such a relationship for the past 28 years with many difficulties, though.
Will Smith met Jada in the early 90s when he was struggling as an actor. They both met on the auditions of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air but parted ways only to know that they liked each other. Will was married to Sheree Zampino and after divorcing her, he married Jada in 1997.
In September 2021, on a Red Table Talk show, Will and Jada Smith made an official announcement that they were in an open marriage and so both maintained physical relationships outside their marriage with mutual consent of each other. Jada did not speak much about such a relationship, but Will offered some insights into the period of ‘Nonomonogamy’ and agreed that he was guilty of such a relationship because of his Christian upbringing. Jada had her own thoughts on marriage, as many of her family members had an unconventional relationship and so were against the whole concept of marriage.
Soon after, the media speculated that Will and Jada Smith were heading for divorce. But they quashed the speculations as baseless on Facebook and said that such kinds of news reports were being circulated by some mindless people. Both confirmed on Smith’s Facebook page they were not getting divorced and were happy to stay together for the sake of the children, likely.

At the Oscars 2022, Actor Chris Rock made fun of Jada Pinkett Smith’s bald hairstyle and said that she was looking like GI Jane 2. This did not go down well with Smith and so he went onto the stage, warned Chris and gave him a tight slap and walked down to his seat, and issued a verbal warning to Chris Rock not to tarnish the image of his wife on a public platform. Chris responded from the stage that Smith smacked the S%^t out of him. But some media resources stated that the issue was much older than thought as a renowned online resource added that Chris made fun of Jada and Will’s relationship on a radio show in 2015 and Mr. Smith slapped Mr. Rock on the Oscars stage as a retaliation deed.
