Well, it’s no surprise that the world is speculating about an impending divorce from the Smiths. After a shocking show of aggression and pent-up anger at this year’s Academy Awards, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s relationship seems only to be going downhill from here. Though their marriage lasted an impressive 25 years, the couple has been oddly open about their marital feuds.
From a tearful wedding ceremony (no tears of joy) to cold-hearted cheating, Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith are clearly on the road to divorce. As you can imagine, the aftermath of a divorce between these two stars could probably result in one of the most messy celebrity divorces since Brangelina.
Reveal all the clues that this couple is heading to Splitsville. In the meantime, we’ll also unpack what would become of the two A-list actors and their net worth if they refuse to work on their marriage. Find all the spilled teas and more here:
Rocking from the start
Actress Jada Pinkett Smith has made it clear that she didn’t approve of their marriage from day one. In an episode of her Facebook Watch series Conversation at the Red TableSmith sat down with her mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones, husband Will and daughter Willow Smith.
Discussing her marriage to Will, Jada openly admitted to crying on their wedding day because she “never wanted to get married.” She described the wedding, which took place in 1997 when she was pregnant with her son Jaden, as “a terrible wedding.” Ouch.
At the time, Jada Pinkett was three months pregnant with her and Will’s first child, Jaden. The actress confessed that when she found out she was pregnant with Will’s child, she cried “all night.” She felt pressured by her mother to marry quickly to avoid having an illegitimate child.
Pinkett Smith also revealed that she felt her life “would never be the same” and that she was “under so much pressure being a young actress — young, pregnant, I just thought I didn’t know what should i do But I knew I never wanted to get married.”
She added that she was “so upset I had to have a wedding” and “cried all the way down the aisle.” Definitely not a good start to a marriage.
Cheating or polyamory?
If crying down the aisle doesn’t ruin a marriage, then infidelity will definitely do the trick. In 2020, singer August Alsina announced that he was having an affair with Pinkett Smith. Just days later, Will & Jada addressed the scandal on their show, in which they famously referred to the affair as an “entanglement.”
However, if the couple decides to give up monogamy, will it still be considered an affair? In conversation with GQSmith admitted their relationship was monogamous at first, but they eventually opened it up because they were “both unhappy and clearly needed change.”
Despite this interview, the public began to see Will as the victim of a toxic marriage. As a result, he addressed the matter by revealing, “Jada has never believed in conventional marriage. Jada had family members who had an unconventional relationship. So she grew up very differently from me.”
Tensions after the Oscar slap debacle
Now it seems the Oscar controversy is just the tip of the iceberg. Since the event, sources have claimed the couple is as broken as ever. “Since the Oscar scandal, tensions between them have been palpable,” a source said magazine heat.
“There have been problems for years, but at the moment they hardly speak. If they split, Will would be worth $350 million, half of which Jada would be entitled to under California law. It could be one of the ugliest divorces in showbiz history, and longer than Angelina and Brad’s.”
The inside source added, “Obviously doesn’t want to but he can only take so much.”
