Jada was only nineteen when she auditioned for the role of Will’s girlfriend on the hit sitcom. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

But the couple immediately found a common language.

At 6’2, Will towers over Jada, who is only 5′. But after the audition, Will and Jada struck up a friendship that soon blossomed into a romance.

Although it will was married to Sheri Fletcher at the time they met…

In an interview with AccessJada admitted that Will was technically still married when they started dating. “He was a diva,” she said. There was no “forced” yet. Will and Sheri divorced in 1995 and they continued to share custody of their son Trey.

It didn’t take long for Will to act against Jada…

After the breakup of his marriage, Will asked Jada if she was “seeing someone” and her answer was “no”. “Cool, now you can see me,” Will told her smoothly.

They seemed like the perfect couple…

But nothing always as perfect as it seems, right?

And, unfortunately, that goes for Jada and Will…

In 2013, fans went berserk when Jada allegedly hinted that she and Will had an open relationship.

During HuffPost interview live Back in 2013, Jada confirmed the rumors…

“I always told Will, ‘You can do whatever you want, as long as you can look at yourself in the mirror and you’re fine.’ Because, after all, Will is his own man. I’m here as his partner, but he’s on his own. He has to decide what he wants to be, and that’s not for me to do for him. Or vice versa.”

Taking to Facebook shortly after the interview, Jada began her post by asking, “Open marriage?…”

She then explained, “The statement I made regarding ‘Will can do whatever he wants’ highlighted the need to discuss the relationship between trust and love and how they coexist.”

On TIDAL Rap Radar Podcast in 2018, Will also spoke about their marriage…

He said, “We don’t even say we’re married anymore. We call ourselves “life partners” when you get into that space where you realize that you are literally with someone for the rest of your life. There are no deal breakers. There was nothing she could do—never—anything that could destroy our relationship.”

This reinforced rumors about the couple’s unique relationship.

Shortly thereafter, however, a brand new wrench stepped in.

In 2020, singer August Alsina made some pretty candid statements about Jada…

He strongly hinted that he had an consensual relationship with Jada in his song “Nunya”.

And to make this story even more scandalous…

He claimed that the relationship, lasting several years, “was approved by her husband, Will.” What?

In an interview with club “Breakfast” Angela Yi, August said…

“I actually sat down with Will and talked. In connection with the transition from their marriage to their life partnership, which they talked about several times, and not related to romance, he gave me his blessing.

He continued…

“I gave myself completely to this relationship for many years of my life. I sincerely and very, very deeply loved and have a ton of love for her. I dedicated myself to it, I gave it my all. So much so that I can die right now and be okay knowing that I really gave myself to someone,” he said.

He concluded…

“I really loved the person I experienced that [with] and I know that [that feels] like if some people never get it in this life.”

Jada took over red table discuss a question.

Good, anyone those who know the Smith family will know about their infamous Red Table.

And Will and Jada spoke candidly about their relationship and family life.

But in this particular episode, she confessed to everything…

And just a few months later, Will Smith also made some confessions of his own…

“Jada never believed in traditional marriage…Jada had family members who were in non-traditional relationships,” he said. “So she grew up in a completely different way than I did. There were important endless discussions about what is perfection in a relationship? What is the ideal way to interact as a couple? And for most of our relationships, we chose monogamy, not thinking of monogamy as the only perfection in a relationship.”

He continued, “Finding the truth is the only way to be happy in this life, and we kind of agreed that authenticity is breaking free from the shackles of fame and publicity.”

The author of the GQ article reported that Will explained to them that Jada wasn’t the only one who was “unfaithful” but didn’t elaborate further.
“We gave each other trust and freedom, believing that everyone should find their own path,” Will told the publication.

“And marriage cannot be a prison for us. And I don’t offer our way to anyone. I do not recommend this route to anyone. But the experience of the freedom we gave each other and the unconditional support for me is the highest definition of love,” he added.

And the Smith family is back in the spotlight after the events that unfolded during this year’s Oscars.
