Keep scrolling to find out more about the rumors, including the speculation that seems to have followed the pair throughout their relationship…
Her film career took off with the 1993 movie Menace II Society.
Jada has starred in The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolution, as well as chick-flicks Bad Moms and Girls Trip.
Jada hosts the infamous chat show with her mom, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, and daughter, Willow.
For years now, rumors of infidelity between her and her husband, Will Smith, have been rife… And this week, a whole new rumor has emerged.
But first, let’s start from the beginning.
Jada was only nineteen when she auditioned to play the role of Will’s girlfriend in the hit sitcom, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
At 6’2, Will towers over Jada, who is only 5′.
But from the audition, Will and Jada built a friendship which soon turned into a romance.
In an interview with Access, Jada admitted that Will was still technically married when they started dating. “He was ‘div’,” she said. “The ‘orced’ hadn’t happened yet.”
Will and Sheree divorced in 1995 and they continued to share custody of their son, Trey.
Upon the breakdown of his marriage, Will had asked Jada if she was “seeing anyone,” and her response was “no.”
“Cool, you’re seeing me now,” Smith had smoothly told her.
And, just 2 years later in 1997, Will and Jada had tied the knot in a private ceremony at the Cloisters Mansion in Jada’s hometown of Baltimore.
Jaden, who is twenty-one, and Willow, who is nineteen.
Both Jaden and Willow have embarked on careers as musicians since they were teenagers and they’re now proving to be very popular – particularly in the hip-hop and rap scene.
But nothing is ever as perfect as it seems, right?
In 2013, fans went wild when Jada allegedly hinted that she and Will were in an open relationship.
“I’ve always told Will, ‘You can do whatever you want as long as you can look at yourself in the mirror and be okay. Because, at the end of the day, Will is his own man. I’m here as his partner, but he is his own man. He has to decide who he wants to be and that’s not for me to do for him. Or vice versa.”
Taking to Facebook shortly after the interview, Jada opened her post with the question, “Open marriage?”
She then explained: “The statement I made in regard to, ‘Will can do whatever he wants,’ has illuminated the need to discuss the relationship between trust and love and how they co-exist.”
On TIDAL’s Rap Radar podcast in 2018, Will had said:
“We don’t even say we’re married anymore. We refer to ourselves as ‘life partners,’ where you get into that space where you realize you are literally with somebody for the rest of your life. There are no deal-breakers. There’s nothing she could do – ever – nothing that would break our relationship.”
But now, a whole new spanner has been thrown into the works.
He had hinted strongly that he had engaged in a consensual relationship with Jada in his song “Nunya.”
He alleged that the relationship, which spanned over several years, “was approved by her husband Will.”
In an interview with The Breakfast Club’s Angela Yee, August said:
“I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation. Due to the transformation from their marriage to their life partnership that they spoken on several times, and not involving romanticism, he gave me his blessing.”
“I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life. I truly and really, really deeply loved, and have a ton of love for her. I devoted myself to it, I gave my full self to it. So much so to the point that I can die right now and be OK with knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody,” he said.
“I really loved the person that I experienced that [with] and know what [that feels] like – if some people never get that in this lifetime.”
Especially considering she’s a married woman.
“I love those people literally like my family. I don’t have a bad thing to say about them. They are beautiful people.”
Jada’s rep told Page Six that the singer’s claims are “absolutely not true,” and that the entire thing has been made up.
So make sure to stay posted for further updates.
