As Jada Pinkett Smith unveiled insights about the couple’s hidden marital struggles, Will Smith lightened the mood on social media with a quirky Instagram post stating: “Notifications off.”
Their playful interactions on the platform were evident to fans.
On October 15, the acclaimed actor uploaded a video that showcased him dozing on a swiftly moving boat. Audibly, one could hear a mix of phone notification sounds. The video caption humorously disclosed, “Fun fact about me, I can take a nap almost everywhere.” Smith humorously appended the post with “Notifications off” and a smiley face emoji.
Jada, amused by her husband’s post, dropped several laughing emojis in the comments section.
This jovial exchange follows Jada’s candid admission about the couple’s marriage. Speaking in an October 11 interview with “Today”, the “Girls Trip” actress shared details about their relationship struggles, stating, “I think by the time we got to 2016, we were just exhausted with trying.” This was in relation to her forthcoming tell-all memoir, “Worthy”. She added that their perceptions of each other had been somewhat idealized over time.
Yet, Jada, mother to Jaden, 25, and Willow, 22, emphasized the couple’s commitment to their marriage, clarifying that they have no intentions of a legal separation. She expressed, “I made a promise that there will never be a reason for us to get a divorce. We will work through whatever, and I just haven’t been able to break that promise.”
Reported by NBC Boston News So, how does Will feel post these revelations? In a heartfelt letter to his wife, read aloud during her podcast appearance with Jay Shetty, he penned, “If I had read this book 30 years ago, I definitely would have hugged you more. Welcome to the author’s club. I love you endlessly.”
Having been married since 1997, the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” star provided a reflective take on their relationship to the New York Times, remarking, “When you’ve been with someone for more than half of your life a sort of emotional blindness sets in.” He emphasized the significance of continually recognizing and appreciating the depth of one’s partner.
