Jada Pinkett believes her marriage with Will Smith shouldn’t have happened and she feels their relationship that led to the marriage was a mistake and anyone in their right mind would have stopped her from being with Will Smith when they started dating.
According to Showbiz Cheatsheet;
As most know, Jada Pinkett Smith wasn’t Smith’s first wife. Back in the 90s, Smith was married to Sheree Zampino. After a rough patch, however, Smith and Zampino would later separate. But although he and Zampino weren’t romantically linked when Smith dated Jada Pinkett, they were still legally married. Because of this, Jada Pinkett felt wrong about their initial romance.
“The beginning between us was rough,”she once said on Red Table Talk (via UPI). “And here’s the one thing I will say in hindsight — because I did not understand marriage, I didn’t understand divorce. I will say that I probably should’ve fell back.”
Her own marriage to Smith would later change her perspective on Smith’s situation with Zampino.
“Now being a married woman and if Will and I were to get divorced now, my God,” she continued. “So when I think back about where I was, some of my insensitivity, some of my inconsideration, just in regards to you guys unwinding a marriage.”
When asked what kind of advice she’d give her children on getting married, Jada Pinkett didn’t think she’d give them advice. Because in retrospect, she might have been glad that no one offered their opinion on her dating Smith. Especially since she was confident that most would’ve advised against her linking up with the star.
“They [Jaden and Willow Smith] have to find their way in regards to that, because I’m gonna tell you, you gotta be real careful with that because if anybody was in their right mind, they would’ve told me not to date Will when I did,” she said. “He was in the middle of a divorce! Fresh! I would not suggest anybody do that,” she once confided to E-News.
“But you don’t know what your fate is,” she continued. “Looking back, that was not a smart move. But it worked out how it was supposed to.”
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett’s marriage is gradually hitting the rocks and I wouldn’t be shocked to see headlines about them heading to court to call it quits.
