When did Jada cheat on Will Smith?
So when did Jada Pinkett Smith cheat on Will Smith? Unfortunately, we may never know for sure. But if we take a look at the evidence, it seems that the infidelity might have happened early on in their relationship. In an interview with Howard Stern in 2015, Jada Pinkett Smith admitted that she had an affair with rapper Tupac Shakur while he was married to his wife, Kidada Jones. She also said that the affair happened when she and Will were on a break. However, she didn’t give any specifics about when the affair took place.
In another interview, this time with Oprah Winfrey, Jada Pinkett Smith said that she regretted the affair and that it was “the most painful thing” she’s ever experienced. She also said that she would never do anything like that again. But promises were broken, and in August 2020, Jada Pinkett Smith admitted to Will that she cheated on him with August Alsina.
Will Never Agreed To Jada Dating August Alsina
At the time of the affair, August Alsina was 23. And Jada claims that their marriage was basically torn. When August Alsina started bragging about his relationship with Jada, she and Will denied it. But then, in a hurtful moment of honesty, and out in the open for everybody else to watch, Jada admitted that yes, she was with August behind Will’s back. Not only that, Jada went on to admit that it wasn’t a casual thing, it was a full-on relationship. In response, Will started crying.
In August 2011, Jada was rumored to be with salsa singer Marc Anthony, but she denied it. Then in August 2013, Jada went to Facebook to comment on what her marriage to Will Smith was like. Confessing —without doing so— to an open marriage. Later, in June 2015 Jada told Howard Stern how she can go on dating other men but Will doesn’t even though they both agree to do whatever they want. In that same year, Jada and Will cleared up the rumors that they were splitting up.
The 2022 Oscars
Then, we’re brought up with the latest controversy, in which after a joke by comedian Chris Rock on how he was waiting to see a “G.I. Jane” sequel starring Jada Pinkett Smith because of her bald head triggered Will Smith, who went to the stage, slapped Chris Rock. Then sat down and yelled at him not to mention his wife.
About an hour later, Will Smith was called upon stage to receive the Best Actor Academy Award, and in tears, he gave an apology speech, but he didn’t apologize to the man he assailed an hour before. Weirdly, he received a standing ovation. And a day later, he received condemnation from the Academy and from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.
