Jada Pinkett-Smith Addresses Rumors of Open Relationship With Will Smith, Says It’s a “Grown” Relationship

(AllHipHop News) Throughout Jada Pinkett and Will Smith’s highly publicized 16 year marriage rumors of infidelity and swinger behavior has appeared. Recently, Jada took to her persona Facebook account to address those rumors after they reappeared following her April 3rd interview with Huffpost Live.

In the interview, Jada reveals that the couple have flexible committed relationship which operates on a shared mentality on infidelity:

“‘You can do whatever you want as long as you can look at yourself in the mirror and be okay.’”

Jada reiterated this sentiment in her Facebook message to her fans. After posing a few questions on the conventions of love, Jada updated her definition of her marriage:

Here is how I will change my statement…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.

The former star of Hawthorne  also referred to her husband as her “best friend”. This is not the first time the power couple has elucidated the nature of their marriage. In July of 2008, Will informed the UK Newspaper Now that him and his wife discuss with one another before having sex outside of the marriage:

If it came down to it, then one would say to the other: “Look, I need to have sex with somebody. Now I’m not going to do it if you don’t approve of it

Jada is preparing to star and co-produce a Colombian film La escribana de uraba (Scribe) through her and Will’s Overbrook Entertainment. She also produced the documentary Free Angela and All Political Prisoners which chronicles Angela Davis’ political activism and court cases during the racially tumultuous 1970’s.

Free Angela and All Political Prisoners is out now.

  • if you’d answer yes or no, you wouldnt have to keep explaining yourself.

    • RMfag

      Or justifying it.

      How is it that other celebrities can manage to keep their lives secret but not them?

  • Very good statement. It’s ordinary people, who don’t understand that.
    If you go past all simple minded emotional fuckery, there is a way to
    lead a total different life. It it called freedom. Doesn’t come without
    responsibilities. But it’s the key to much more happyness.
    People love sex. People like to experiment. It’s life.
    Instead making marriage a prison. Make it colorful happy.
    Whatever makes both happy in full respect of each other.
    Call em swingers. So what.

    • brotha_man

      IDK I hear you, but if marriage is a “prison” why get married? just live single, do what you do and call it a day

      • I agree. A single life might be more suitable as if you know you’re heading towards divorce anyway. Only get married if you and your wife really know each others and your relationship is more than just sex. Once the beauty is gone or you see someone hotter around most of you guys here are gone.
        It’s more useful to have a real friendship built up between each other and
        a very realistic view on what marriage is.

      why is it always those twisties (not locs) headed, weed smoking, “higher spirituality” type negroes always talking this free sex open marriage shit? Simple…don’t get married!

      • I don’t smoke weed and I don’t even drink coca cola. I am also no higher spirituality type. I am an atheist. I don’t believe in spirituality. I am simply a very practical thinker. With divorce rates as high as they are and a high demand for sex with random partners, who we don’t want to get married with or reproduce with but just like to have a quick shag with is some thing that you cannot deny. In today’s day and age we are living with an overexposure of sex, but also with a more honest approach to the matter. Many begin to understand that love and sex are 2 different shoes. Before the 70s sex was merely functional, just to reproduce. But not something you would enjoy.
        Now that contraceptives are common, sex has changed. Another game player was viagra. So even those old heads with erectile dysfunction are able to
        have a sex life. I would call that a recreational sex life. People enjoy it more than ever. So this is of course a game changer on the views about how we see marriage and partnership.

      • you sound lost.

      • Lost in what sense? I’m quite comfortable in my shoes.

      • you are lost in your own convoluted ideas and understanding of life. being comfortable in your own shoes has nothing to do with anything. lol youll learn that

      • So I better choose mental slavery?
        Believe something that does not make sense at all?
        So if not i must fear persecution and punishment?
        By a god who loves us all?
        Loves us as long as we pay his churches money?
        Hang a white Jesus on my wall?
        Give up my logical thinking and hope my god will guide me?

      • you are living in metal slavery.
        you dont have to believe it, but its there.
        sure if you choose.
        im not talking about god. 9see you are lost)
        im not talking about any church.
        Sure if you want.
        No give up your illogical thinking and hope you can guide yourself.

        Man you are lost.

      • DollasTX

        one of them immoral but forward thinkers

      • no no no YOU SOUND LOST (see what i did there) yeah nothing… nice one

    • problem is EVERYONE is affected by simple minded emotional fuckery, you can deny it but its still there, your girl Fs a dude, then you have to F a bitch, it all adds up until it forms into a new problem thats hard to connect to an original source. been there done that.

    No they don’t have an open relationship. It is not agreed that they can have sex with who ever when ever carelessly. They accept the humanity of each other and have a realistic approach to the temptations of their environment, their own egos, their unavoidable fame and their industry. They have an agreement to talk openly about their human sexual desires, and they have an agreement of unconditional love, forgiveness, and honesty. they do not uphold the other to an impossible standard that they in turn can not hold themselves to. They got married because they know there is no one else in the world they would rather be with, they are best friends, and they want to be partners in raising their children, building their wealth, and with artistic endeavors. I’m sure these two travel for months with out each other and they probably both have strong sexual appetites where for them abstinence is not an option. Instead of lying to each other and growing distant, they accept the truth, themselves, and each other for who they really are. and if the other person says no, they respect that too. You know the 80 -20 rule. they understand that those other people are just fulfilling a small 20% and they enjoy the 80% with each other. They have now 100%. so many people divorce over 20%, leave their partners for the other 20% only to realize that 80% was everything. Just because it works for them doesn’t mean it works for you. Will Smith is a loving husband to his wife, a loving father to his children, and has provided for next few generations of his family. A lot of Black men can learn from this. Let their marriage be—and work on your own relationships.
