Jada Pinkett Smith is set to publish a memoir unveiling how complicated her marriage to Will Smith is. The memoir will be published next fall, and it comes a year after Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars over a joke about Jada’s bald head via the Daily Mail;
Jada Pinkett Smith is releasing her ‘no holds barred’ memoir in autumn 2023, its publishers revealed in a bombshell announcement Thursday.
The book, which comes from HarperCollins imprint Dey Street Books, promises to explore ‘Jada’s complicated marriage to Will Smith,’ according to a press release.
A description quoted by People magazine says the upcoming autobiography ‘chronicles lessons learned in the course of a difficult but riveting journey – a rollercoaster ride from the depths of suicidal depression to the heights of personal rediscovery and the celebration of authentic feminine power.’
The press release teases: ‘With no holds barred, Jada reveals her unconventional upbringing in Baltimore – from the child of two addicts to a promising theatre student and a violent interlude as a petty drug-dealer – followed by a parallel rise to stardom alongside her close friend 2Pac, then falling in love with and marrying Will Smith, and a joyous embrace of motherhood.’
She began dating Will before he was legally divorced from his first wife Sheree Zampino and married him 1995 while pregnant with their first child.
They became a famously close-knit showbiz power couple, welcoming two children, Jaden, 24, and Willow, 21, who followed them into the business at a young age.
However over the past few years their marital problems seeped into the public eye as Jada publicly aired out her ‘entanglement’ with another man.
Will then argued in GQ that ‘marriage for us can’t be a prison’ and revealed ‘Jada never believed in conventional marriage.’
Just when it looked like Will was getting his groove back, here comes Jada to take his shine away.
