Jada Pinkett Smith recently shared a candid revelation about the pivotal role a memorable Oscar night played in saving her marriage with Will Smith. In an exclusive interview with Daily Mail, she reflected on the incident involving Chris Rock and how it became a turning point for their relationship.
Jada confessed that she had considered skipping the Oscars that year but ultimately attended, a decision she now refers to as the ‘holy slap’ due to the positive impact it had on her life. The infamous incident, where Chris Rock was the unintended target, brought unexpected clarity to Jada and Will’s marriage.
In her own words, Jada expressed, “After all those years of uncertainty about staying by Will’s side, it took that slap for me to realize I will never leave him.” This revelation sheds light on the depth of their connection and the transformative nature of the Oscar night incident.
While Jada had previously disclosed their separation in her memoir dating back to 2016, recent public statements from both Jada and Will indicate a renewed commitment to their relationship. Despite the mystery surrounding the current scope of their union, their shared sentiment suggests a positive trajectory.
Will Smith echoed his wife’s sentiments during an earlier interview in October, describing their relationship as “brutiful” – a blend of brutal challenges and beautiful moments.
