Legendary actor, Will Smith, has spoken out about his marriage – revealing that he and his wife, Jada Pinkett- Smith, have been undergoing couples counselling in the hopes of saving their marriage.
The couple have been together for 19 years and have two children together – Jaden, 18 and Willow, 15 and Trey, 23, from Will’s first marriage.
Their marriage has been under heavy scrutiny for years after rumours of an open marriage and divorce circulated on social media, but the couple have never admitted to seeking help before.
In a recent statement to the press, the 47-year-old actor said: “I’ve done a lot of marriage counselling. What happens in a marriage once you do counselling, the truth comes out. And you sit across from your wife and you’ve said all of your truth and she has said all of her truth. You look at each other and you can’t imagine you could ever possibly love each other again now the truth is out”.
He went on to say: “It creates a dark moment. But for me it’s the dark before the dawn. When the truth comes out and people have to say who they are and what they think, you get to know who they are. I think that’s the cleansing before you get to the other side that is understanding and moving forward in our relationship”.
