The King Richard actor and his wife have been very open about their relationship – so much so that a revelation Jada made during a Red Table Talk with her husband about two years ago made headlines. But Smith, 53, is making it known there’s never been infidelity in their marriage.
“There’s never been infidelity in our marriage. Never,” the SAG Award winner said, per PEOPLE. “Jada and I talk about everything, and we have never surprised one another with anything ever.”
He added: “I have decided that chatter about my life can be of benefit to people. I think that chatter is the first stage to having a real conversation and being able to truly explore if some of the things in your heart are loving or poisonous.”
Will met Jada in 1994 on the set of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. They got married in 1997 and share two children. Smith also shares a son with his ex-wife Sheree Zampino.
In 2020, the couple made the news after singer August Alsina claimed he had an affair with Jada after Will gave him the go-ahead to be romantically involved with his wife. And following the revelation, Jada, in a Red Table Talk with her husband, said she had an “entanglement” with the Benediction singer while they were briefly separated. Jada, however, added that she and Will eventually managed to patch things up.
“We have really gotten to that new place of unconditional love,” she said at the time.
In a September interview with GQ magazine, Will also revealed he and his wife have an open marriage. “Jada never believed in conventional marriage,” the award-winning actor said.
“Jada had family members that had an unconventional relationship. So she grew up in a way that was very different than how I grew up. There were significant endless discussions about, what is relational perfection? What is the perfect way to interact as a couple? And for the large part of our relationship, monogamy was what we chose, not thinking of monogamy as the only relational perfection.”
He added: “We have given each other trust and freedom, with the belief that everybody has to find their own way. And marriage for us can’t be a prison. And I don’t suggest our road for anybody. I don’t suggest this road for anybody. But the experiences that the freedoms that we’ve given one another and the unconditional support, to me, is the highest definition of love.”
