Jada Smith and Will Smith have one of the longest-lasting marriages in Hollywood. The couple married on 31 December 1997 after dating for three years. When they started dating, Smith was still married to Sheree Zampino. Now the Girls Trip star has shared that she regrets starting her relationship with the Men in Black star while he was still married to Zampino. Despite their differences, Jada Smith and Sheree Zampino bonded over time, and now they have a good relationship.
Sheree Zampino appeared on this week’s episode of Jada Smith’s talk show, Red Table Talk, and talked about how their relationship has evolved over the years. During the show, the 51 years old actress also shared that she thinks she got into a relationship with Will Smith too soon after his divorce.
Jada Smith Says She Rushed into Her Relationship with Will Smith
The Matrix Resurrection star admitted that she was in the picture too soon after Smith’s divorce. Zampino said,
“I remember you coming to me, and you were teary, you were very emotional, and you said, ‘I just didn’t know.’ And basically what you were saying is, ‘I was in the picture too soon.’”
And the Scream 2 stars admitted to rushing into the relationship and apologized to Zampino. Jada Smith has earlier shared that she did not want to get married to Will Smith too soon.
But Jada Pinkett’s mother, Adrienne Banfield Norris, forced her and the Crown star to get married, which they did in 1997. She shared that she was pregnant and did not know what to do, but was sure she did not want to get married at that time.
