Everyone remembers how Will Smith gave slap to the host for the joke about wife.
The 94th Academy Awards will be remembered for the slap that Will Smith gave to the host of the ceremony for the latter’s inappropriate joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett. For this act, the actor was banned from attending the Oscars for ten years. Of course, he apologized for the behavior, but many appreciated the courageous way.
Their first meeting took place in 1990. They didn’t get to work together on this project, but Smith noticed Jada’s charm. At that time, he was married to Sherry Zampino, but the family was already on the verge of breaking up. They started dating only five years later, when the actor had just divorced his wife.
In 1997, Jada Pinkett became pregnant and even then did not want to officially register her marriage. However, Will Smith was the opposite: the child must be born in a complete family. The family seemed to live in peace and harmony. In 1998, they had a son, Jaden, and two years later, a daughter, Willow. But already in 2011, it became impossible to hide problems in the family.
At first, there were rumors about Jada’s betrayals, even the name of her new lover, singer Marc Anthony, was mentioned. The couple assured that everything is fine with them.
When the actress began to appear in public with August Elsin, they again started talking about the upcoming divorce of Will Smith. Later, Jada herself admitted that in fact there was an episode in her life related to August, but she did not receive permission from her husband.
The Smiths are determined to save their love and marriage, which is why Will Smith’s joke at the Oscars was offensive. When Chris Rock compared Jada’s close-cropped hair to Soldier Jane from the film of the same name, the actor stormed onto the stage, told the comedian to shut up, and slapped him hard. The thing is that his wife has been suffering from hair loss for quite a long time, and a short haircut is not a tribute to fashion and not an attempt to shock the public, but a necessity.
