What Will said

As per the report by Page Six, Will Smith has now addressed estranged wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s bombshell revelations in an email to the New York Times. Will said, "When you’ve been with someone for more than half of your life, a sort of emotional blindness sets in, and you can all too easily lose your sensitivity to their hidden nuances and subtle beauties."

He also added that the revelations made in the memoir kind of "woke him up" and he had also realized that she is more "resilient, clever and compassionate than he'd understood."

Jada's comments

A few days ago, in an interview with NBC News special with Hoda Kotb, Jada shared, “I think by the time we got to 2016 we were just exhausted with trying. I think we were both kind of just still stuck in our fantasy of what we thought the other person should be. I made a promise that there will never be a reason for us to get a divorce. We will work through whatever. I just haven’t been able to break that promise.” Jada also revealed that Chris Rock had once asked her out on a date amid rumours of her divorce from Will Smith.
