Actor Will Smith has finally responded to the series of revealing interviews by his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. His response may come as a shock to those who have been defending him against Jada’s revelations, as he still uses affectionate words while talking Jada. In an interview with The New York Times, published on October 14, Smith expressed his support for his wife’s sometimes uncomfortable revelations. He praised her for her resilience and compassion, which he now realizes are qualities she possesses more than he initially thought.
“When you’ve been with someone for more than half of your life, a sort of emotional blindness sets in, and you can all too easily lose your sensitivity to their hidden nuances and subtle beauties,”
ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith, who interrupted his sports analysis to criticize Jada Pinkett Smith for her alleged “emasculating” behaviour toward Will Smith, would be taken aback by this news. The well-known ESPN pundit uploaded a video on his Instagram on Saturday, October 14, pleading with the actress to quit behaving badly toward her husband.
“You want to mess with some dude that’s your son’s friend?”
“As trifling as that may seem in people’s eyes, that’s your damn business. Do you want to break up with your husband and all of this stuff? That’s your damn business.”
“But this public emasculation needs to stop. Jada, all you’re doing is elevating the level of vitriol coming your way. Because it doesn’t matter what you say. There’s nothing you can say to a man to justify what you have done to Will Smith. Every time I see Jada Pinkett Smith talk about Will Smith, I cringe. We kings. We ain’t here like to be treated like that.”
Jada Pinkett Smith’s numerous disclosures on the press tour promoting her upcoming memoir have stunned the world. The actress, who recently disclosed that she and The Fresh Prince had been separated for seven years, said in an interview with Hoda Kotb on the TODAY show that she couldn’t understand why the Fresh Prince referred to her as his “wife” when they hadn’t used that title for years. She further explained that she wasn’t offended by Chris Rock’s joke, despite what many observed when Smith stormed onstage and smacked him.
“First of all, I’m really shocked, because, mind you, I’m not there. We haven’t called each other husband and wife in a long time,” “I’m like, ‘What is going on right now? Keep my wife’s name out of your mouth?’ I’m really worried for Will because I don’t know what’s going on.”
“I did that eye roll not so much for me — and I think this is really important — but the fact that there could be a jab at alopecia,”
