Jada Pinkett-Smith Slams Divorce Rumors
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith‘s marriage has been the target of divorce rumors for almost a year, but finally one of them is speaking out and addressing the speculation about their nearly 15-year union. In a recent interview with French-language magazine Gala, Jada said:
“Every year, a celebrity couple is on the radar. This year, unluckily, it’s us! I almost want to say that we should have been expecting it. But Will and I know the truth. We are waiting peacefully for when the storm ends.
These rumors are completely untrue. I’m traveling a lot because of my work, as Will does. And the fact that I’m accompanying our daughter, Willow, on her trips, while Will spends time with our son, Jaden, doesn’t make things easier. But our way of living hasn’t changed. Before the children, we were already away from each other quite often because of our work.
In general, Will and I take two months of holiday, at the end of the year. Right after Thanksgiving, we shut down the curtain and nothing comes to bother our family life until January.”
During the interview, Jada also defended their parenting style, which has been the subject of criticism because of their children’s busy work schedules and Willow’s penchant for dying her hair different colors:
“Jaden is almost 14 and Willow 11, and as a mom, I’m really proud to see them following their passions. With Will, we let them enough space to let them express themselves and reach their dreams. We are avoiding to live through them.
I spent my youth in the streets of Baltimore, drugs were circulating at home. Will had a tough youth as well. So, you know, I’d rather than Jaden and Willow grow up in Hollywood than with drug addicts.”
Unfortunately, I disagree with Jada’s logic: you can be in Hollywood and still be surrounded by drug addicts…hell, Hollywood is full of them!!
