Jada Pinkett Smith Reveals She and Will Smith Been Separated Since 2016



Jada Pinkett Smith said I am going to sell the bell out of this this book. In her new memoir Worthy she reveals she and Will Smith has been separated since 2016. In an exclusive clip from her upcoming NBC News prime-time special with Hoda Kotb — which will air on Oct. 13 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC — Pinkett Smith confirms to Hoda that she and Will are living complete separate lives and although their not divorced on paper the two are not together and still trying to figure it out.

When Kotb asks directly why the couple hadn’t previously shared their relationship status, Pinkett Smith says it came down to “just not being ready yet … Still trying to figure out between the two of us how to be in partnership … In regards to, how do we present that to people? We hadn’t figured that out.”

When Kotb asks what led to the relationship’s “fracture,” Pinkett Smith responds:

“Why it fractured…that — that’s a lot of things … By the time we got to 2016, we were just exhausted with trying. I think we were both kind of just still stuck in our fantasy of what we thought the other person should be,” she says.

Pinkett Smith adds that while she has considered a legal divorce, she has never been able to go through with it.


“I made a promise that there will never be a reason for us to get a divorce. We will work through … whatever,” Pinkett Smith says. “I just haven’t been able to break that promise.”
