In a fresh revelation, Jada Pinkett Smith disclosed that she and Will Smith are “working very hard” on their marriage after announcing last week that they parted ways in 2016. Despite living separately, the couple has continued making public appearances together.
Pinkett Smith shared with NBC that they are majorly focusing on “healing the relationship”. This comes in the wake of last year’s incident where Will Smith caused a stir on the Oscars stage by slapping host Chris Rock, shouting, “keep my wife’s name out of your [expletive] mouth”.
The recent unveiling by Pinkett Smith concerning the Hollywood actors’ relationship has garnered global media attention. On NBC’s Today Show, she remarked, “We are in a place now that we are in a deep healing space. And we are really concentrating on healing the relationship between us… We are working very hard at bringing our relationship together back to a life partnership.”
Jada elaborated on the inherent humanity in their bond:
“He can’t be this perfect idealized husband. I have to be able to accept him for the human he is. He has to accept me for the human I am. And we want to love each other there.” When asked about the possibility of living together again, she did not rule it out.
The actress also mentioned, during a book launch on Wednesday, that she had considered a legal divorce but couldn’t go through with it as she was determined to work through it. She attributed the breakdown of the relationship to “a lot of things” and by 2016 they were “exhausted with trying”.

Speculation surrounded the couple in 2020, after on her Facebook show, Red Table Talk, Pinkett Smith discussed her “entanglement” with artist August Alsina. The acting duo met in 1994 when she auditioned for The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, tying the knot in 1997.
Will and Jada have two children together, Jaden Smith and Willow Smith, along with Trey Smith, Will’s son from his first marriage. This new chapter in the couple’s life reflects the dedication and ongoing effort they are willing to invest to heal and strengthen their marital bond.
