Jada Pinkett Smith has just exposed a huge surprise about her marriage to Will Smith, opening up about their relationship more than ever before.
In a clip from her upcoming NBC News prime-time special with Hoda Kotb, which is set to air on October 13, the Red Table Talk host reveals that she and Smith have been separated and living “completely separate lives” since 2016.
Hoda asks Pinkett Smith to expand on the marriage revelation from her upcoming memoir, Worthy, with the host saying that’s what “surprised her the most” out of the book’s “many surprising things.”
Though the two of them are still legally married, Pinkett Smith explains that she and Will are no longer romantically together–and they haven’t been for a long time.
When Hoda asks why the couple hadn’t gone public with their relationship status before now, Pinkett Smith says it came down to “just not being ready yet.”
Jada continues to explain that up until now, the couple was, “still trying to figure out between the two of us how to be in partnership … In regards to, how do we present that to people? We hadn’t figured that out.”
As for what led to the relationship’s demise, there’s not one clear answer.
