Will Smith slapped Chris Rock, and the internet seems to feel that Jada Pinkett Smith is the cause of it all. Things keep getting worse and worse as to the internet being convinced that Jada doesn’t love her husband, which is why she “allowed” him to walk on stage in the first place.
Yesterday old footage of Jada Pinkett emasculating her husband surfaced. Today Jada’s words once again came back to bite her.
This morning after news came out that Will Smith is banned from the Oscars for the next decade, (yes, 10 whole years) The NY Post dropped an article revealing the time Jada Pinkett confessed that she “really didn’t want to get married” to Will Smith.
NY Post Reports:
In fact, the “Matrix” actress admitted to “crying down the freaking aisle” before tying the knot with the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” star on New Year’s Eve in 1997.
“I was under so much pressure, you know, being a young actress, being young, and I was just, like, pregnant and I just didn’t know what to do,” declared Pinkett Smith, 50, in a freshly exhumed snippet from her “Red Table Talk” Facebook series. “I never wanted to be married.”
In the clip from 2018 — which has resurfaced amid renewed controversy around her louche “entanglement” with R&B singer August Alsina, 29 — Pinkett Smith candidly recalls her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, also known as “Gammy,” 68, forcing her and Smith to wed after she became pregnant with their first son together, Jaden, now 23.
“I really didn’t wanna get married,” Pinkett Smith restated while seated around the circular table with her mom, as well as Smith, 53, and their daughter Willow, 21.
“We only got married because Gammy was crying,” a chuckling Smith informed Willow.
“It was almost as if Gammy was like, ‘You have to get married, so let’s talk about the wedding,’” said Pinkett Smith, prompting Banfield-Norris to confess, “I remember feeling very strongly and wanting you guys to be married.”
The “Girls Trip” star’s mother was just 18 when she became pregnant with Pinkett Smith, and briefly married her father, Robsol Pinkett Jr.
“I do remember [wanting you and Will to get married] but I don’t remember your rejection of the idea of marriage,” Banfield-Norris added. “I remember the rejection of the idea of a wedding but not of a marriage.”
Pinkett Smith then recalled being browbeaten into Big Day submission.
“And now Gammy done gone to Will, crying about ‘I don’t want a wedding,’ and now I’m being forced to have a wedding,” she said. “I just wanted it to be the two of us on a mountain because I was like: ‘This is serious business.’”
It gets worse…..
Jada and Will married at the Gothic-style Cloisters Castle in a suburb of her hometown, Baltimore, Maryland. And, despite their picturesque venue, Pinkett Smith and her mom both acknowledged that it was less than stellar.
“The wedding was horrible,” Banfield-Norris conceded. “It was a mess. Jada was sick, she was very unpleasant … She didn’t cooperate with anything.”
Laughing, Pinkett Smith agreed, saying, “And I was so upset that I had to have a wedding. I was so pissed I went crying down the freaking aisle. I cried the whole way down the aisle.”
Conversely, Smith — who, in March, earned his first Oscar for a masterful portrayal of Venus and Serena Williams’ father, Richard Williams, 80, in the feature film “King Richard” — was positively giddy on their wedding day.
“There wasn’t a day in my life that I wanted anything other than being married and having a family,” he said during the episode. “From literally 5 years old, I was picturing what my family would be.”
Jada is a beast!. She also got upset with Will for throwing her a birthday party.
This is heartbreaking to say the least. There’s acting, there’s attention to your brand, and then there is destroying the brand of a man who has worked so hard to get to where he is. Yet this is what people tell you to be, honest and authentic.
Like I said yesterday, this is an entire movie. Lifetime or the movie theater. It’s coming.
