Jada Pinkett Smith says she's not "mature enough" to divorce husband Will Smith
The Smiths have been a power couple, and probably the secret to their successful marriage is not getting a divorce.
Jada Pinkett Smith is opening up about the future of her long-lived marriage with husband Will Smith. The mother-of-two revealed that she would probably not choose to divorce her husband anytime in the future, as keeping him would be far cheaper as compared to a divorce.
Speaking with her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Jones, and Toni Braxton for an upcoming episode of 'Red Table Talk', the 47-year-old actress revealed, "For me personally, I’m not mature enough to have a divorce. I’m just not. I don’t think I would ever be mature enough. I don’t.”
On being asked why she thought that was a difficult step to take, she mentioned that it was the breaking up of assets that bothers her. She explained, "Because when you have to start going in, breaking up assets, that right there…”,
Banfield-Jones cut her out in between and explained, "When you have to start to divide things, separate, cut off …”
Agreeing with what her mother had to say, Pinkett Smith said, "Let me tell you, that’s when the red table turns upside down and it won’t be red no more! This’ll be smashed in shambles. You know what I’m saying?"
Pinkett Smith, along with her husband, had earlier spoken about a tumultuous period in their marriage which almost brought it to an end. The 50-year-old actor had admitted that he wouldn't have noticed all the unhappiness in his family had his daughter, Willow, not shaved her hair. He mentioned, "I saw for the first time what Jada had been saying the whole time about hiding behind my ego, my dreams, and my desires and pretending like it’s love."
The couple during their earlier appearance on the show in October had claimed that they would probably never get a divorce as keeping the marriage going was far cheaper. When Will asked if his wife would ever divorce him, Pinkett Smith replied, "It’s cheaper to keep me."
As for Smith, who was previously married to Sheree Zampino, whom he had divorced in 1995, and with whom he shares a son, 25-year-old Trey Smith, he will probably never look out for a divorce again.
He had mentioned, "Because I had been divorced before, I wasn’t getting divorced again. Divorce wasn’t an option.”
However, that did not mean that he was not devasted with the problems of his present marriage, regarding which he stated, "I was devastated even worse than a divorce. We broke up within our marriage and got back together again."
