Jada Pinkett Smith And Will Smith Have Been Separated For 7 Years

“We’re still figuring it out.”

Jada Pinkett Smith has revealed that she and her husband Will Smith have been separated for the last seven years.  The actor has been married to the former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star since 1997.

In a new interview with People magazine, Jada shared some insight into her relationship. “We’ve been doing some really heavy-duty work together,” she continued. “We just got deep love for each other and we are going to figure out what that looks like for us.”   

She then revealed that at the time of the 2022 Academy Awards, when Will slapped Chris Rock, they had been separated for six years. When discussing the infamous slap she recalls, “I thought, ‘This is a skit,’” Jada said. “I was like, ‘There’s no way that Will hit him.’ It wasn’t until Will started to walk back to his chair that I even realized it wasn’t a skit.”

Together, they share children Jaden and Willow, as well as Will’s son Trey, whom he had with his first wife, Sheree Zampino.
