On March 27, the world of Will and Jada Smith changed forever. The slap that rocked the Oscars and the world echoed through the hallowed halls of the Smith household. Will Smith lost his cool in a most embarrassing fashion and in front of millions of fans worldwide. His actions will probably forever be condoned and polarizing. Jada Smith is also getting a lot of flak from the fans for trying to fan those flames post the controversial Oscars ’22 event.
Now the question is – Did Will & Jada Smith become in 2022 what Johnny Depp & Amber Heard were all these years? Are they the most controversial couple at the moment? From what we have seen the news so far, there is not enough evidence to prove otherwise. Here’s everything about Will & Jada Smith that is still dividing the fans.
March 27 – Will Smith Slaps Chris Rock Over Rock’s Alopecia Joke
Chris Rock never saw it coming. As far as he knew, he was just doing what many hosts before him like Seth MacFarlane, Eddie Murphy, and Steve Martin have done – roast the audience. Will and Jada Smith knew they would be ridiculed when they sat in those front rows.
Granted Rock could have been out of line but Will Smith walking up the stage and hitting Rock on live TV was not what we had expected to see at events as boring as the Oscars. Smith’s slap became so infamous that it became more of a talking point than the Oscars this year.
Will & Jada Smith Have Weird Family Issues
Will and Jada met each other on the sets of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. She was auditioning for the role that eventually went to Nia Long. After Will’s first marriage ended, he asked Jada out and the rest is history. The couple have a son and daughter together. Despite being a close knit family, the couple are known to agree to some ‘unconventional practices.
In an interview with GQ in 2021, Will & Jada admitted they don’t practice monogamy. Their marriage is pretty much an open ended one. These were just ‘rumors until last year. Jada was publicly confronted about her affair with singer-songwriter August Alsina. And she accepted. In a well-publicized interview, Will Smith looked visibly devastated when Jada agreed that she had been cheating on him for several years.
After the entire fiasco was over, Will & Jada didn’t break up. Instead the couple said the entire ordeal made their relationship stronger than ever – whatever that means.
Jada Agrees She Was ‘Forced’ To Marry Will
A new video from Will & Jada’s past has surfaced online that further confirms how screwed up the entire relationship dynamic between Will & Jada is. Jada Smith, in her award winning Facebook Watch talk show – Red Table Talk, says something extremely peculiar. She says and we quote:
“I was under so much pressure, you know, being a young actress, being young, and I was just, like, pregnant and I just didn’t know what to do.”
This essentially means Jada only married Will because she was kind of forced into it. Had she not been pregnant, things could have most certainly gone a different way. Will & Jada wouldn’t have been a couple in 2022.
And that means the entire Oscars 2022 controversy, in an alternate universe, never happened.
Are Will & Jada The New Johnny Depp & Amber Heard Of Hollywood?
In 2016, the news of Amber Heard filing for divorce and accusing Depp of physical abuse caught the attention of the whole world. For the better part of the decade, the Depp-Heard controversy dominated all news outlets. Now it looks like Will & Jada Smith may finally be taking up that crown. Their recent bouts with a series of controversies both on and off the record have certainly made them the new hot gossip of H-Town.
