For 15 years, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have been enjoying married life and thriving as black Hollywood’s most beloved long-standing couple. Despite never-ending rumors of infidelity, open marriage and divorce, the couple continues to survive and have claimed that divorce is not an option for them. But in a new interview, Jada claims that there is one thing that would make her “abandon” Smith.
In her new cover story for Redbook magazine, Pinkett Smith claims that she will never leave Smith. She admits however, if it came down to Smith versus her kids, she would leave.
“What is the thing that Will could do to make me not love him? That would make me abandon him? I can’t think of one. I’m sorry. Except if he did something bad to the kids — now we’ve got a problem.”
Thankfully, Smith seems to be one of the most loving fathers in Hollywood, so we don’t see any problems of that magnitude between him and their kids popping up any time or ever at all.
Luckily, the Smiths aren’t the only Hollywood couple who’ve enjoyed a long and happy marriage. Check out some other resilient Hollywood marriages below. –nicholas robinson
