There’s been mixed reactions after Jada Pinkett Smith and her husband, Will Smith, sat down to talk about their marriage like never before.
In the 25 years they’ve been married, Pinkett Smith in particular has cultivated a brand borne of her willingness to talk about anything and everything in public — except, for the most part, the particulars of her marriage, a constant source of speculation for curious onlookers. But when rapper August Alsina recently alluded to a recent relationship between himself and Pinkett Smith, and with her husband’s blessing no less, it opened the gate for those rumors to come rushing back to the forefront.
The chatter was so fierce, apparently, that Pinkett Smith decided she couldn’t ignore it — or flat-out deny it, as her reps initially did — this time. “There’s some healing that needs to happen,” she tweeted July 2, “so I’m bringing myself to The Red Table.” The declaration got over 100,000 retweets, and the resulting episode racked up 2 million views on Facebook Watch by the end of its first hour online. So the Pinkett-Smiths tackling the latest round of rumors about their marriage this publicly now isn’t just astonishing; it’s extremely savvy.
During the Red Table Talk, Jada addressed the August Alsina love talks, and other things concerning her relationship with Will Smith.
