Will Smith addresses longstanding rumors that he and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, are in an open marriage. In his November GQ cover story, the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star admits that their relationship began with monogamy but then evolved.
“Jada never believed in a conventional marriage … Jada had family members who had an unconventional relationship. So she grew up very differently from me, ”Smith told the magazine.
“There have been significant endless discussions about what is relational perfection? … And for most of our relationship we chose monogamy, not monogamy as the only perfection of the relationship. “
The” King Richard “star stated that he and the” Gotham “alum are within have “given confidence and freedom” to their union because marriage “cannot be a prison” for them.
“I am not suggesting our path to anyone. I don’t suggest this route to anyone, ”he remarked. “But the experiences, the freedoms we gave each other, and the unconditional support are the highest definition of love for me.”
Smith, 53, also admitted that his wife’s “entanglement” with August Alsina made it appear as if she was the only one having an extramarital affair, but “that was not actually the case, as Smith carefully explained to me,” the play writer notes.
“The public has an impenetrable narrative,” said Smith, who will also be releasing his memoir “Will” in November.
“Once the audience has decided something, it’s hard to impossible to get the pictures and To suppress ideas and perceptions. ”
In July 2020, the couple, who married in 1997, announced that they had been secretly separated on their date with Alsina.
“We did everything to get away from each other, only to realize that it wasn’t possible,” said Jada Will during her “Red Table Talk”.
Will then joked about having his wife with hers To support “transgressions,” to which Jada said, “I do not really see it as a transgression at all. I learned so much about myself through this particular journey, and I was really able to face a lot of emotional immaturity and emotional insecurity – and I was really able to do really deep healing. ”
