In a recent New York Times profile interview, Jada Pinkett Smith has unveiled several shocking revelations from her forthcoming memoir, “Worthy.”
The candid exploration of her inner struggles includes past suicidal inclinations, battles with depression, and the use of hallucinogens to navigate her mental health challenges.
Additionally, she delves into the unique marital situation she shares with her husband, Will Smith.
The memoir offers a raw and unfiltered glimpse into the inner demons Jada has faced, and it has prompted a response from Will Smith.
The Oscar-winning actor expressed his admiration for his wife’s strength and resilience, stating that reading the book reminded him of the hidden nuances and subtle beauties in Jada that can be overshadowed by the long duration of their relationship.
One of the most startling revelations from Jada’s book is the disclosure that she and Will have been separated for seven years.
While their separation wasn’t formalized through divorce, Jada describes it as a divorce in practice, explaining that they’ve been leading “completely separate lives” since 2016.
Throughout the years, rumors circulated about the couple’s status, leading to misunderstandings that Jada now clarifies as untrue.
The decision to maintain this arrangement, according to Jada, was rooted in not being ready to redefine their partnership publicly and an exhaustion in trying to fit their idealized versions of each other.
She emphasized a commitment to never allowing their marriage to end in divorce, choosing to work through whatever challenges arose.
For now, divorce is off the table, as Jada stressed their love for their family and each other. Their relationship is described as more of a life partnership, with the future open to possibilities.
While Jada and Will have faced their own share of ups and downs, their journey continues with resilience and a commitment to navigating life together.
“Worthy” is set to hit bookshelves on October 17, and it promises to be a compelling read for those interested in the candid exploration of a renowned couple’s challenges and triumphs.
