Jada Smith recollects being compelled into marrying Will Smith
In an episode of Red Table Talk from 2018, Will and Jada got unposed about their relationship.
Jada spoke about feeling compelled into getting married during the talk show.
“I was under so much pressure, you know, being a young actress, being young, and I was just, like, pregnant, and I just didn’t know what to do,” she said during the Facebook series, continuing:
“I never wanted to be married – I really didn’t wanna get married,” Pinkett Smith said at the table with her mother, Will Smith, and Willow Smith.
“We only got married because Gammy was crying,” Will Smith added about Jada’s mother.
“It was almost as if Gammy was like, ‘You have to get married, so let’s talk about the wedding,’” said Pinkett Smith, to which her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, said:
“I remember feeling very strongly and wanting you guys to be married.”
“And now Gammy did go to Will, crying about ‘I don’t want a wedding,’ and now I’m being forced to have a wedding,” she said. “I just wanted it to be the two of us on a mountain because I was like: ‘This is serious business.’”
Jada accepts she cried going down the aisle
“I was so upset that I had to have a wedding. I was so pissed I went crying down the freaking aisle. I cried the whole way down the aisle,” she said about the wedding.
“There wasn’t a day in my life that I wanted anything other than being married and having a family,” Will Smith said, continuing: “From literally five years old, I was picturing what my family would be.”
