JADA REVEALS SHE STARTED DATING WILL WHILE HE WAS STILL MARRIEDMay 7, 2018
But the Girls Trip star has revealed their initial romance was a bit controversial as Will was still married when they started dating.
Jada disclosed the news in a new interview alongside her mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones.
“I think initially when Will first called you, I think he was still married or he was just separated, or something, and I said, he’s not available to you,” Banfield-Jones told Access.
But Jada clarified that Will and his first wife Sheree Zampino had already begun the process of untangling their lives.
“He was ‘div,’ ” Jada said. “The ‘orced’ hadn’t happened yet.”
Despite what may have been a rocky start, Jada and Will’s ex managed to maintain an amicable relationship as both co-mothered Will and Sheree’s son Trey. In fact, Jada actually interviewed Sheree for her new Facebook Watch series Red Table Talk.
“That’s our first episode. That’s our Mother’s Day episode,” Pinkett Smith said. “I thought it was important to have that conversation because she was my entry point to motherhood. I was co-mothering with her. At that particular time, before [having a blended family] was popular, before it was even an idea, we were trying to create something that we had never experienced.”
Will and Sheree were married from 1992 – 1995, and share 26-year-old son Trey.
After meeting on the set of Fresh Prince of Bel Air in 1994, Jada married the Independence Day star in 1997. They share 19-year-old son Jaden and 17-year-old daughter Willow.
The premiere episode of Red Table Talk is streaming on Facebook Watch now.
