Ahead of the release of her memoir, “Worthy,” set to hit the shelves on October 17, Pinkett Smith shared with People magazine a detail that many were unaware of: she and superstar husband Will Smith had been living separately for six years leading up to the infamous Oscars event.
While the world speculated on the state of their marriage, Pinkett Smith clarified, “We’re still figuring it out.” The couple, known for their candid discussions about their relationship on platforms like “Red Table Talk,” have been working intensively to navigate their unique marital journey.
Unraveling the Oscars Mystery
The Oscars night left everyone in shock when Will Smith slapped comedian Chris Rock over a joke about Pinkett Smith’s shaved head. While the world watched in disbelief, Pinkett Smith herself was taken aback. She revealed that her initial thought was that it was a pre-planned skit. The reality of the situation only dawned on her when she saw her husband returning to his seat, visibly upset. Her immediate reaction was one of concern, asking him, “Are you okay?”
