In the resurfaced video of Jada Smith talking about her wedding with Will Smith, she confessed she did not want to get married. She had done that because her mother, Adrienne Banfield Norris forced them to. Jaden was conceived while the two were still dating. So, the actress tied the knot with Will only because of her mother.

The actress told, “It was almost as if Gammy was like: “You have to get married, so let’s talk about the wedding,”‘ said Jada, noting that ‘I was under so much pressure, you know, being a young actress, being young, and I was just like pregnant and I just, I was just like, I didn’t know what to do, but I just knew, I was like, I never wanted to be married.”

Adrienne Banfield Norris or as she is commonly called Gammy talked about the wedding of the couple. She replied to Jada, “I remember feeling very strongly and wanting you guys to be married. I do remember that but I don’t remember your rejection of the idea of marriage. I remember the rejection of the idea of a wedding but not of a marriage.”

To which Jada confessed that she did not want a huge wedding either. She wished for a more private wedding. To which Gammy apologized for not respecting Jada’s wishes and the fact that she got selfish for insisting on a full ceremony. She confessed it was because Jada was her only child. And that she wanted her daughter to have a perfect wedding.

The wedding was “horrible”

Though the couple has said that getting married was the right call for them. Both Gammy and Pinkett Smith said that the wedding was “horrible.” The two got married in a gothic-style Cloisters Castle in her hometown, Baltimore. As she was three months pregnant, she felt really sick. And her mother told that because of that she was not cooperating with anything.

Jada added to that, “And I was so upset that I had to have a wedding – I was so pissed I went crying down the freaking aisle. I cried the whole way down the aisle.” Will Smith was happy on the wedding day and he too shared his mind on Red Table Talk. He said, “There wasn’t a day in my life that I wanted anything other than being married and having a family. From literally five years old, I was picturing what my family would be.”

In the other reemerged clip we see Jada forcing Will to talk about their marriage on an Instagram live. This was for the promotion of the episode of Red Table Talk with psychotherapist and relationship expert Esther Perel.

The actor was clearly uncomfortable and asked her to stop filming him. But she did not and kept pushing him to say something. The clip has made Redditors call the actress an “abuser.” While others said that Will Smith was clearly “broken” and “tormented.”
