Will Smith says wife Jada ‘cried 45 days straight’ when marriage was suffering

Will Smith has opened up about his once-faltering marriage to Jada Pinkett.

In a sneak peek for his wife’s web chat show Red Table Talk, the 50-year-old can be seen shedding tears as he discusses the darker times in their 21-year union.

‘There was a period where mommy woke up and cried 45 days straight, I started keeping keeping a diary,’ he says to their daughter Willow in the clip.  ‘You missed some days,’ Jada interjects with a wry smile.  ‘It was every morning. I think that’s the worst I’ve ever felt in our marriage,’ Will added. ‘I was failing miserably.’


Further on in the preview, Will is seen admitting he and his wife ‘don’t even call ourselves married anymore,’ which Jada finishes in unison, prompting shocked looks from her mother; the couple have discussed the point previously, declaring themselves more as ‘life partners.’

Another clip sees the duo lightheartedly sparring as they get mic’d up.

‘You’re not breaking me today, Jada,’ Will warns her, before she fires back: ‘I’ve broken you enough.’

The teaser also sees Jada admitting: ‘I’ve dated a lot of people,’ which prompts Will to jokingly storm off with ‘alright I’ve had enough of the Red Table.’
