Jada Pinkett’s unexpected blow to Will Smith at his worst

The last gala of the Oscar awards is still on everyone’s lips. Two weeks after Will Smith slapped Chris Rock in the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, many have been interested in knowing Jada Pinkett’s opinion about what happened since, after all , the incident took place because of a joke by the presenter about the look of the actress.

To everyone’s surprise, the wife of the winner of the statuette adopted a position that no one expected, stating that she “does not need protection from anyone”, and neither from her husband. In fact, a source close to the marriage revealed the content of the conversation that Jada would have had with Will after the slap: “She is not one of those women who needs to be protected. She didn’t need to do what she did, she doesn’t need to be protected. She is a strong woman, a woman with an opinion and she can fight her own battles. It was in the heat of the moment and he was the one who exaggerated. He knows it, she knows it. They agree that he exaggerated.”, he added. A testimony that suggests that perhaps the couple would not be going through the best time, despite the fact that Smith’s reaction implied that his connection with his wife went beyond what they showed publicly.

As if that were not enough, it has been now that Pinkett has returned to monopolize the media spotlight by going viral a video in which he claims to have never wanted to marry the protagonist of the Prince of Bel-Air. It was during an interview on the show Red Table Talk, in 2018when Jada sat down to talk, in the company of Will himself, his daughter Willow and his mother, Adrienne Banfield, about their love story, which does not seem to have been rosy: “I was under a lot of pressure, being a young actress and being pregnant. I didn’t know what to do, but the only thing I knew was that I never wanted to be married”, confessed the protagonist in question, also admitting that she was “very upset” about having to get married in a wedding that, according to her mother, “was horrible”.. A few words that show that the marriage would not have been as idyllic as it seemed.

Be that as it may, the truth is that since the dawn of March 27, Jada has not wanted to make any statement about her husband’s attitude at the Oscars. A way to protect him after the large number of criticisms that she has received in just fourteen days. In fact, the slap was quite expensive for Will, being vetoed by the Academy in the events that it organizes for the next decade. This was confirmed by the organization itself through a statement that has not been without controversy: “The Board has determined that, for a period of ten years from April 8, 2022, Mr. Smith will not be permitted to attend any Academy event or program, in person or virtually, including, but not limited to to the Oscars”. A document signed by the president and the CEO that has had detractors and supporters from all corners of the planet.
