Hollywood stars, Will Smith and wife, Jada Pinkett Smith are ready to go for another round of “telling it all” about their marriage.

In a recent development, Jada Pinkett Smith has made a shocking revelation about her marriage to Will Smith, stating that she and her husband have been living separate lives since 2016.

In an interview on NBC, Pinkett Smith disclosed that the couple had not previously gone public with their separation because they were not yet ready to let everyone know about it.

“Still trying to figure out between the two of us how to be in partnership. How do we present that to people? We hadn’t figured that out,” she said.

The Matrix actress and Wild Wild West actor got married in 1997 but despite their marital issues they are not legally divorced. Their marriage has come under scrutiny in recent times.

It can be recalled that in July 2020, American singer, August Alsina, came out to say that he had a romantic relationship with Pinkett Smith, something she confirmed during an episode with her husband on the ‘Red Table Talk’ reality show.

“I got into an entanglement with August,” Pinkett Smith confessed, explaining then that the superstar couple were going through a very difficult time when it occurred.

After all this drama in the celebrity marriage, there was the famous Oscar slap during the 2022 Academy Awards when Will Smith stormed the stage and slapped presenter Chris Rock after he made a joke about his wife, Pinkett Smith being bald.

Mrs Smith revealed that she was suffering from alopecia, which has caused her hair loss.
