Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have been married since 1997. Over the years, their relationship has had its ups and downs, but it's only now come to light that they have been living separately for some time. Some speculated that it was due to the alleged homosexuality of the actor. What does the mother of his children say about this?

A year ago at the Oscar ceremony, Will Smith slapped Chris Rock, who made a joke about his wife. Jada Pinkett Smith was sitting next to him and nothing suggested that their relationship was going through another crisis. Meanwhile, it turns out that for the past seven years their marriage, despite no divorce, is a sham.

Jada Pinkett Smith confirmed that she does not live with her husband under the same roof, but she is not thinking about a divorce. - I promised myself that there would never be a reason for us to divorce. We will work through everything. And I just haven't been able to break that promise - she confessed in one of the recent interviews.

The 52-year-old also addressed rumors about her husband's sexuality. Pinkett Smith noted that there have been "a million things said" about her marriage. For example, that they are swingers, that Will Smith is gay, et cetera. "I would say none of this is true. I understand where the misunderstandings come from, but [none of these claims] are true," the actress said.

At one point, it was assumed that Will and Jade were in an open relationship, which was supposed to confirm her affair with August Alsina. In reality, the actor did not at all "give his consent" to her relationship with the much younger singer. And he found out about everything from Jade while filming her show. Pinkett Smith then confessed to him that she had "gotten into a different kind of entanglement" with Alsina, which was widely echoed in the media and the show-business world.

Many were surprised that Will Smith did not leave his unfaithful wife, who with a smile on her face admitted to infidelity on camera. Now it is clear that their relationship was already very complicated back then and they were only married on paper.
