What happened on the stage of the Oscars ceremony clearly divided the audience, but above all it had serious consequences for the career of Will Smith. The actor, as he himself was able to declare, would have let himself go to that very ugly gesture just to defend the honor of his wife. But, as they say, now even insult could be added to the damage: it seems that Jada Pinkett has decided to get away from Will, even going so far as to file for a divorce.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett: Divorce in sight?
The indiscretion, launched by Heat Magazinecan only leave everyone speechless. Will Smith and Jada have always seemed a very close and close-knit couple, albeit in conditions that, to many, have often appeared rather strange. Now something may have broken, and the triggering event seems to be the now famous slap that Smith gave to comedian Chris Rock, during the ceremony of delivery of the 2022 Oscars. An impulsive and absolutely wrong gesture, for which the actor has widely apologized, and which cost him the expulsion from the Academy for 10 years.
However, the repercussions of this event did not end here: probably, it will still pay the consequences in his career, which in recent years had reached its peak. And, perhaps, his private life will also suffer a lot. In fact, it is rumored that his wife, Jada Pinkett, intends to ask for the divorce. According to an anonymous source in the English magazine, the two have even stopped talking to each other. “Since the Oscar scandal, the tensions between them have become palpable. There have been problems for years, but now they hardly speak”- reads on Heat.
Divorce in sight, then. And certainly not the easiest: according to rumors, it could be very complicated and painful for all parties involved. “If they separate, Will has $ 350 million in assets of which Jada, under California law, would be entitled to half. It could be one of the ugliest divorces in showbiz history and prolong more than that in between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt”- revealed the magazine. And, again according to rumors, the actor would not agree at all: “he doesn’t want this, but there is a limit to what he can bear”.
Will Smith, the relationship with Jada
After divorcing his first wife, Will Smith fell in love with Jada Pinkett: the two married in 1997 and had two wonderful children, Jaden and Willow. But there hasn’t always been a serene atmosphere between them. Both have repeatedly talked about their marriage, down to the most intimate details, between misunderstandings and betrayals. Always, however, telling a happy ending. This time the breakdown appears to be inevitable, despite what Jada herself revealed just a short time ago. The actress had in fact left a short social message to explain what was happening at the Smith home.
On Facebook, in the aftermath of Will’s slap in the face of Chris Rock, Pinkett wrote: “Considering everything that has happened in recent weeks, the Smith family is focusing on a profound healing“. Perhaps, the path was not successful. Although the news of the divorce between the two spouses has not been absolutely confirmed (nor denied) by the directly concerned, the indiscretions they are becoming more and more insistent.
