Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith say their bond transcends mere marriage
Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith say they are at another level in their relationship.
Smith recently appeared as a guest on Tidal’s Rap Radar podcast and said he and Pinkett Smith “don’t even say we’re married anymore.”
“We refer to ourselves as life partners, where you get into that space where you realize you are literally with somebody for the rest of your life,” the rapper/actor said.
“There’s no deal breakers. There’s nothing she could do — ever. Nothing […] would break our relationship. She has my support till death and it feels so good to get to that space.”
The couple married in December 1997 and are the parents of Jaden, 19 and Willow, 17. Will Smith also has a 25-year-old son, Trey, from a prior marriage.
Every so often, the internet will buzz with rumors that the Smiths are splitting and he addressed that on his new single, “In The Clique,” which debuted in May.
“Stop the divorce rumours and mind your own business,” Smith raps.
For her part, Pinkett Smith said during an appearance on the radio program “Sway in the Morning” in June that she and her husband are never divorcing.
“We are family. That’s never going down,” she said. “We are family. Take out all that whole marriage, relationship crap, at the end of the day, Will and I are family. I am going to hold him down, doesn’t matter.”
“All that relationship [stuff] and what people think ideas of a husband, partner and all that, man, whatever,” she added. “At the end of the day, that is a man that can rely on me for the rest of his life, period.”
