“Ridiculous demonstration of ego”: Jada Pinkett’s anger with Will Smith for the party he organized for her

The scandal at the Oscars on Sunday March 27, when Will Smith slapped Chris Rock for a joke about his wife Jada, uncovered the complexity of the bond between the King Richard actor and his colleague, partner and mother of his children.

After the actor assured at the Dolby Theater that “love leads you to do crazy things” to protect “the people you love”, the media magnifying glass began to focus on his marriage to Pinkett. In the last few hours, a video went viral in which Jada talked about the anger she felt when Will organized her 40th birthday party for her.

In one of the broadcasts of his now even more popular YouTube show, Red Table Talk, Smith recalled how “devastated” he felt by how Jada rejected the reception with harsh words, and contextualized how that moment of discussion came about. According to the actor’s testimony, his wish was to organize a surprise party full of luxury and surprises. “The day after his 34th birthday, I was already hiring a team to orchestrate his 40th birthday celebration,” Smith said in 2018 of 2011.

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith went through a lot of turmoil

“I hired a documentary team, it was going to be my great declaration of love, it was going to be what took her out of her midlife crisis, it was going to be spectacular, something very deep,” added the actor, who hired the actress and singer Mary J. Blige to perform their songs at the party. Smith was so sure that Jada was going to like the event that he disregarded a talk he had had hours before.

Pinkett had told him that she wanted to do “something intimate”, that she did not want to celebrate her birthday. Will, who already had the surprise celebration planned, tried to persuade her otherwise. When her words were not enough and the celebration was carried out anyway, the actress was furious and told her husband that he was self-centered, that her birthday had more to do with him than with her. “She told me that what I did was a ridiculous display of my ego, and that broke me, I’m still devastated because she was right, it wasn’t a party for her,” she acknowledged and added, regarding the relationship: “That was a very low point ”.

Jada’s confession: “I never wanted to marry Will Smith”

The 50-year-old actress confessed that she married under pressure

In the same Red Table Talk roundtable, the Smiths had also spoken in 2018 about another tough time for marriage: their marriage, no less. The actress confessed that she never wanted to marry Will: “They forced me and it was horrible,” she said, with her husband present. Jada recounted that she cried “all the way down the aisle” and spoke of the pressure she felt to get married. “She was under a lot of pressure, she was a young actress, she was pregnant and didn’t know what to do, but she never wanted to get married,” she confirmed.

The actress looked at her mother Adrienne, who was also on the show, and told her that she felt she had forced her to make the relationship with Smith official. “We did it because ‘Gammy’ [el apodo que Jada le puso a su mamá] I was crying. It was as if she told us: ‘you have to get married,’” she expressed.

“Yes, I remember having a strong desire for you guys to get married and you being sick, uncooperative at all,” Adrienne recalled. “But I don’t remember your rejection of the idea of ​​marriage.” Her daughter mentioned that she was in a bad moment: “I felt so upset because I had to get married that I went crying down the damn hallway.”

Unlike Jada, Will said that the wedding was something he wanted very much, and that his experience was beautiful. “Ever since I was five years old I imagined what my family would be like, there was not a day in my life that I didn’t want to be married and have a family,” Smith said.

Will and Jada were married on December 31, 1997, in Baltimore, Maryland, and the following year Jaden, now 23, was born. In 2000, the couple welcomed Willow, 21.

In the 25 years they have been together, they have suffered many shocks. The marriage went through crises, infidelities and media scandals. Two years ago, the rapper and friend of one of her children, August Alsina, revealed on an American television program that he had been in a relationship with the actress for years. That statement did nothing but unite Smith and Pinkett, who elaborated on Jada’s infidelity on her show, where they are not afraid to expose her setbacks.
