Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith could be headed for divorce. In the wake of the dreaded Oscar slap against Chris Rock, which currently has Will Smith career in jeopardy, at least in the foreseeable future. In this podcast episode, we’re going to dive into a latest report by various sources that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. Their relationship is on the rocks in the wake of the slap and what it means if it ultimately leads to divorce. I have a couple of sources here. I don’t want to waste your time. I’m gonna get right into it Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, according to Yahoo. might be getting a divorce Hollywood is talking about Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith divorce rumors. After the infamous slap insiders are fairly certain that the power couple are headed towards divorce after the Oscars incident Jota Wasn’t it a lot of people saying that he was doing it the whole reason why Will Smith went up there and slapped Chris Rock who was doing his job was because he was trying to protect the honor of his wife. Why would she not agree with what he did? Why would she not be supporting him? I thought he was supporting her. I thought that she was damaged. I thought that she was somebody that was so hurt by Chris Rock’s gi Jane joke that he was the protector of the family. Let’s continue hearing this article out. I’m Vic confused. The King Richard actor had made headlines when he slept comedian Chris Rock at the Academy Awards on March 27 2022. Rock commented on Jada’s hair calling her “G.I. Jane” which was what prompted Smith to go on stage and slap him the academy motion pictures ban Smith from attending any of the academies events including the Oscars. Will Smith apologized to rock on Instagram on March 29. We’ve heard that apology already. I will link that in the description following the altercations rumors emerged of Jada and Will’s splitting the couple who have openly talked about their marriage troubles on Jada show red table talk, among other things are reportedly not getting along after the slap. She’s ever since the Oscars scandal. It indicates here, the tension between them has been palpable. A course a closed source told heat magazine UK there have been problems for years, but they’re barely speaking right now. This source continued that if divorce was on the table, things will get messy quickly, if they were to split will has a fortune of $350 million that Jada would be entitled to under California law.
It could be one of the ugliest divorces in showbiz history and drag on longer than that. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt divorce. Wow. So that is the setup there. A lot of people have been stating that the whole reason why Will Smith decided to puff up and go slap Chris Rock is he was protecting Jada. He was defending her. Why would she not be sticking by him? If these sources and reports are true, that’s a credible source there. That is Yahoo. Disclaimer. I want them to stay together. I want people who commit to somebody and get married to stay married. However, my position this whole time has been Will Smith made a poor decision. He moved on a motion. When Chris Rock said the initial joke. He laughed at it. And he did not decide to go and choose violence until he saw Jada Pinkett Smith’s face. That’s not how you move as a man. And I’ve also said men need to move on logic and reason because in the wake of the Oscar slap, all we have seen is all of the turmoil and consequences rightfully so that Will Smith has been experiencing because he made that emotional and weak decision. I don’t want to see them get divorced. I want to see them work this out. However, this is a cautionary Tell in a learning lesson for a lot of men, that you need to move on your logic and your reason, because when you do that, in the moment people are praising you. But now he’s facing the consequences. And he could be in jeopardy of losing half of his $350 million fortune for protecting his woman. And what does he have to show for it? This is just a huge l If this ends up happening for Will Smith. You see what I’m saying? That’s why as a man you need to be on your purpose on your grind, level headed, and making sure that you’re not being manipulated emotionally, to do stupid stuff like this. Let’s continue on. There’s further context. To this. It goes on this date. And there’s other sources Jada Pinkett openly talked about on the read table talk that she had, you know, what did they call what is the saying when people are kind of on the fence about getting married? There’s a saying something feet. Well, she was not certain. If she really wanted to marry will in the first place. The thing will come to me at some point, I thought it’s something feet but I digress. How Jada Pinkett Smith said herself that she never wanted to marry will. And she cried horribly at the wedding. You don’t believe me? Well, let’s go to the New York Post for the report, please.
Jada Pinkett Smith never wanted to marry will. She confessed that she really didn’t want to get married. In fact, the matrix actress now on the roasting, roasting spit, whatever that means, from Smith infamous Oscar smacked out of Chris Rock. They admitted to crying down the freaking aisle before tying the knot with the Fresh Prince of Bel Air star on New Year’s Eve. 1997. She says 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. She declared that and a freshly exhumed snippet from her red table talk Facebook series. I never wanted to get married in the clip from 2018 was resurfaced amid renewed controversy around her entanglement comment. And what went on with r&b singer August Alsina 29 Jada candidly recalls her mother Adrienne Banfield Norris, also known as a gammy, forcing her daughter and Smith to wed after she became pregnant with their first child together. son Jaden now 23, which is what a mom should do. You don’t want to have your kid out here having kids out of wedlock. I don’t blame the mom for that. This is part of that conversation where she confessed to Will Smith, where Jada confessed to Will Smith that she did not want to marry him. Wow. She says we only got married because my grandma was crying. It was almost as if grandma was like, you have to get married. So let’s talk about the wedding. I remember feeling very strongly and want you guys to get married. Jada was only 18 When she became pregnant, and briefly married her father. No, no, the grandmother was only 18 When she became pregnant with Jada. Jada is mother and briefly married her father Rob soul Pinkett Jr. Okay, gotcha. So it’s a little background of the grandma. So there’s some of the backdrop and what I’ll say is, as a man looking and observing this situation. All I’ll say is this. I don’t think Will Smith realizes how much he damaged his reputation, but also how much he put his future in jeopardy and the future of his family in jeopardy by so called protecting them. So many men fall into the trap of being manipulated, emotionally coerced. In a situation like this, and they end up taking the fall when it comes to marriage. We already know this statistics men. The majority of the time is proven 80% of the divorces fall by women. The majority of the time the man loses financially in divorce, especially in California with the 10 year alimony. He’s gonna be paying alimony for the rest of her life. If that happens, and I’m not saying that she shouldn’t get any money, because she is his wife, and she has been there with him for all these years, but I’m just saying he was supposed to be protecting her, right? He was doing this, I want to hear all the people with that same energy that was talking about how will was right. Will was protecting a black woman. He was doing this he was protecting his wife, he was being strong and more men should step up and put their neck out there and do that. Why? So then they can lose money for the family so they can not work. The jobs that they were getting. Some of his productions got shut down. A lot of them that because of all it is because he’s volatile as far as working within the industry because of his actions. That hurts the family too. Now, she came out after the fact Jada Pinkett Smith came out after the fact and said, I didn’t agree with what he did. What, at the moment, I don’t know if you guys seen those videos. But right after it, there was another angle, after Wilson slap Chris Rock, where you can see Jada Pinkett Smith smiling and laughing and just enjoying the moment. So which is it? I’ll say this.
Men, you take the brunt of the responsibility and the accountability in these situations, whether you believe it or not. And you have to open up your eyes and move smarter, especially if you have something to lose, especially if you have status, money. And you’re in a position like this. So that’s what I want you to do. I want you to use the model of this podcast, observe society, digested look at situations like this as a cautionary tale. And progress forward. I’m always observing situations like this, figuring out how I can move and be better. I’m not going to claim that I have it all figured out. But I want men to open their eyes up, observe and really recognize what’s going on. Under the surface of these things, logic and reason will help you prevail and become a better man. But it’ll pass you by you won’t recognize what’s going on right in front of your face. If you don’t take the time to digest what’s going on.
