Jada Pinkett Smith addresses open marriage reports

Jaden Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith,  Willow Smith and Will Smith at the UK film premiere of Karate Kid held at the Odeon cinema in London, England.

Jada Pinkett Smith and her husband Will Smith have one of the longest running marriages in Hollywood, but recently there have been rumors that Will has been unfaithful as well as reports that the two have an open marriage. Over the weekend, Jada took to social media where she addressed the ongoing rumors.

“Open marriage? Let me first say this, there are far more important things to talk about in regards to what is happening in the world than whether I have an open marriage or not,” Jada wrote in a recent Facebook post. “I am addressing this issue because a very important subject has been born from discussions about my statement that may be worthy of addressing. The statement I made in regard to, ‘Will can do whatever he wants,’ has illuminated the need to discuss the relationship between trust and love and how they co-exist.”


Earlier this month, Jada attempted to dispel the persistent rumors surrounding her marriage, but unfortunately it only added fuel to the fire. While Jada said “no” in regards to the direct question of if they had an open marriage, she also said, “I’ve always told Will: You can do whatever you want as long as you can look at yourself in the mirror and be okay. I’m here as his partner, but he is his own man.”

In her Facebook post, Jada went on to ask fans several questions about what love is. “Do we believe loving someone means owning them?” she asked, “Do we believe that ownership is the reason someone should ‘behave’? Do we believe that all the expectations, conditions, and underlying threats of ‘you better act right or else’ keep one honest and true?”

In the end, Jada didn’t exactly put the rumors to rest, but she did reword what she had previously stated. “Here is how I will change my statement,” she wrote, “Will and I BOTH can do WHATEVER we want, because we TRUST each other to do so. This does NOT mean we have an open relationship…this means we have a GROWN one.”

What do you think? Do these two have an open marriage or not? Although Jada may be trying to straighten things out, her words seem to raise even more questions.

    How can I say this without sounding critical? …..how about “who cares”? I really dont care if they have an open marriage, a rotten marriage, a swinging marriage…at the end of the day, I still have to go to work and pay my bills so theres no way to say it then to just say it; “who cares?”

    • Really?

      If you clicked on this article you care a little bit. At least enough to be curious about what she had to say!

  • HoardersFan

    She once again has failed to answer the question. Obviously there is some adultery going on, not that I personally care.

  • She sure said a lot without saying anything much at all. She danced around that one!
    I’ve definitely lost respect for them as a “married” couple. What makes a marriage different from other relationships is faithfulness to only your spouse. So sad how Hollywood tends to demoralize something that should be sacred .

      Who cares what they do as long as it works for them?

      • I agree. It’s none of my business but nothing on this entire site is any of our business. ” Gossip” sites. 🙂

    Call it whatever you want — if both parties in a marriage can do whatever they want, that is an open marriage. Personally, I think that defeats the entire purpose of being married – but, it’s their lives.

    I don’t think she danced around the question at all. I think what she meant is that they have a lot of temptation surrounding them at every turn because of their celebrity. She’s not going to go through his cell phone, his e-mail among other things, she’s just going to trust him to do the right thing and be honest about it. And by “right thing,” I mean stay true to their vows.
