Will Smith’s relationship with Jada Pinkett Smith may have been doomed to eventually fail from the very beginning but she seems to be refusing to move on and leave Will Smith on his own. The two actors share three kids and have been married since the ’90s but Will Smith has always lived with regret. During an interview at ‘The Breakfast Club’, the actor opened up about how jealous he always was of rapping Tupac Shakur. Jada and ‘Pac’ had a relationship since they were children and the actress started dating Will, Tupac was then killed not long after that. Smith always lived with that inferiority complex, which he expressed on that interview. After that, many different problems have occurred between the couple. But Jada Pinkett Smith could be the true villain of a long story that lived its climax in that viral moment from the Oscars.
After it all heppened, reports came of Jada throwing Will Smith under the bus for defending her but there’s a lot more to this story than just the events of the Oscars. Will Smith has been suffering ridicule in public since those ‘Red Table Talk’ discussions in which the Smith family talks about all the issues surrounding them. For some reason, Jada thought airing their personal issues in public and making it a show on Youtube was a good idea. Out of all the memes Will Smith has become over the years, the one he probably hates the most is that screenshot of Jada admitting on camera she was cheating on him with rapper August Alsina. It all goes full circle as the actress finally got her chance to have a relationship with a rapper but she hardly through about how this affected her husband.
Old video resurfaces of Smith arguing with Jada.
Perhaps there are couples who do agree on open relationships, they are mature enough to not get hurt by them. But Will Smith’s face that became a meme is not tha face of a husband who likes that his wife is having an affair with another man. An old video that was probably around the time when this ‘entanglement’ was made public just resurfaced. Jada tells Will: “Would you say she has been instrumental in you and I redefining our relationship?”
“I would say: don’t just start filming me without asking me if you can film me,” a clearly angry Will responds.
“Oh my goodness,” Jada responds. “Esther, come help us again, please. I’m still dealing with foolishness.”
“Would you say that she helped us heal the hurts that we caused between one another?” she insists while turning the camera back on Will.
This is the moment Will simply exploded: “My social media presence is my bread and butter, okay?” he pleads. “So you can’t just use me for social media and not, you know, don’t just start rolling. I’m standing in my house. Don’t just start rolling. Don’t…”
Do watch the video for yourself and tell us if this can be considered abuse from Jada Pinkett Smith. And also, why hasn’t Will Smith divorced her already?
