Jada Pinkett-Smith claims she did not cheat on Will Smith despite 'brief entanglement' admission

Jada Pinkett-Smith claims she did not cheat on Will Smith despite 'brief entanglement' admission

Despite the pair's turbulent marriage, she claims infidelity was never on the cards

Following a week of never-ending revelations on her marriage to Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith is clearing the air on one hot topic of conversation.

Over the past week or so, the 52-year-old actress and talkshow host has been disclosing details about the pair's relationship ahead of the release of her new memoir Worthy.

Most notably, last Wednesday (11 October), Jada revealed that the couple had been 'secretly separated' since 2016 but kept up the appearance of a happily married couple in the years that followed.

She also spoke of her shock when Will, 55, called her his 'wife' as he slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars back in 2022, claiming the pair hadn't 'called each other husband and wife in a long time.'

“I’m like, ‘What is going on right now? Keep my wife’s name out of your mouth?’" she told Hoda Kotb in an interview for NBC.

Now, Jada wants to clarify that despite her turbulent marriage to the Fresh Prince, cheating was never on the cards.

During a conversation with her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris on TalkShopLive, she said: “I just need people to know, okay, I did not cheat on Will Smith."

During a particularly tense episode of Jada's talkshow, Red Table Talk back in 2020, she and Will discussed her 'brief entanglement' with American singer, August Alsina.

She claims no infidelity took place no matter 'how sad [Will] looked' during the episode and clarified that the entanglement took place while she and her husband were on a break.

Her denial of cheating comes after she told PEOPLE last week that neither her nor Will had ever had an affair. And, despite rumours, she also clarified that they do not have an open relationship.

“We eliminated the chance of betrayal,” she said. “It's like, ‘Let's talk about it. Let's work through it together. Let's be in partnership. Let's not keep each other in the dark.'"

She continued: “I think where that got confusing is that as time went on, there were different stages in my marriage where Will and I decided we were not together. We didn't tell the public, where I was actually thinking about divorcing, separating. There've been several of those where we've gone and lived our separate lives. So I think within that is where people might've thought that, 'Oh, they must be having an open relationship.'"

Earlier this week, Will broke his silence on Jada's confessions about their marriage in a rather brutal way.

The Oscar winner shared a video of himself taking a trip on a boat, as well as enjoying a lovely nap to Instagram.

“Notifications off,” the star wrote.
