Jada Pinkett Smith's revelation about her separation from Will Smith since 2016, a topic she delves into extensively in her newly released memoir "Worthy," has stirred up media attention. This is particularly noteworthy considering the couple's past openness about their family life. Now, the star of "Girls Trip" is shedding light on the reactions of their children—Willow, 22, Jaden, 25, and Will's son Trey, 30, from his previous marriage with Sheree Zampino—to her candid memoir.
In an interview with InStyle published on October 17, Jada shared, "What I did was tell them what's in the book, what stories I was going to tell about them specifically, and if they were okay with that."
A Mother-Daughter Connection
Continuing her discussion, Jada Pinkett Smith added, "Willow has read [it], she's an avid reader, and she's the next author in the family. But she read a huge part of my book before it was even edited, so she loved it. She couldn't wait; she's like, 'Mom, I'm taking this copy. I got to finish my read.' She was super excited about it."
Jada initially disclosed her separation from the "Men in Black" actor on October 11. When asked about the delay in making their relationship status public, she explained to Today's Hoda Kotb, "I believe it's because we simply weren't ready at the time. We were still in the process of figuring out how to navigate our partnership and how best to communicate that to the world. It was a matter of us working through that together."
Sharing the Journey with the World
Despite living apart for years prior to the 2022 Oscars ceremony, during which Will Smith confronted presenter Chris Rock over a joke about his "wife," the couple had consistently and emphatically refuted persistent breakup rumors that had surrounded their relationship throughout the years.
Jada Pinkett Smith's recent admission about her separation from Will Smith finally clears the air on years of rumors they've denied. It's been a rollercoaster ride, and people can't help but stay intrigued by their story.
