The Hollywood star, who wed Will in 1997, admits she doesn’t believe in marriage
Jada Pinkett Smith has spilled more secrets about her 21-year marriage to Will Smith.
The Hollywood couple walked down the aisle in 1997 – but not because Jada, who was three months pregnant with Jaden at the time, wanted to.
Speaking on her Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk , Jada confessed: “I was under so much pressure being a young actress — being young, pregnant, I was just like, I didn’t know what to do. But I knew I never wanted to be married.”
She went on: “My first trimester was horrible. And I was so upset that I had to have a wedding. I was so p***ed. I went crying down the freaking aisle, I cried the whole way down the aisle.”
The mum-of-two said she doesn’t agree with the “rules and ideas” of a marriage union.
“I just never really agreed with the construct [of marriage]. I just don’t agree with it. I still don’t. Til death do us part is real for me, but all of the rules and all of the ideas. This title ‘wife,’ the accepted conventional definition of wife in the paradigm – I’m not that.”
Jada’s mum, who also appears on the show, accepted that she pressured her into getting married.
