Jada Pinkett Smith had a tear-filled conversation with her husband Will Smith’s first wife Sheree Zampino Fletcher and she revealed quite a lot, including that she regrets dating Will while he was still married to Sheree.
During the premiere of her new Facebook Watch series, Red Talk Table, Jada, 46, who met Will Smith, 49, in 1994, expressed regret over dating him in 1995 when he was still married to Sheree, 50.
A tearful Jada said: “Because I did not understand marriage. I didn’t understand divorce. I will say that I probably should’ve fell back.”
At that, Sheree snapped: “You think?”
Jada then goes on to explain how it took time for her to realize that she was behaving “insensitively” and “inconsiderately” as Sheree and Will’s marriage was “unwinding” and she [Jada] was just “trying to get in there.”
Sheree also recalled a time she and Jada exchanged words over the phone before hanging up on each other.
Sheree said: “I called back and happened to say, ‘bitch, you living in the house I picked out!’ And you said, ‘It’s my house now’.”
Both women laughed at this, then Jada revealed that Will really scolded her when he heard about the fight.
Jada said: “His take was, ‘That is Trey’s mother and that’s just not your place’.”
Sheree also recalled how her son with Will Smith, Trey, who is now 25, reacted to meeting Jada for the first time.
“So Trey comes home and I said, ‘How did you like Miss Jada?’ He said, ‘I really liked her, Mommy’,” Sheree recounts.
She adds: “Thank you for loving my baby…I’ll tell you, on this side of things, my son could not have a better bonus mom.”
Jada and Will Smith have been married for 20 years and they have two kids; son Jaden, 19; and daughter Willow, 17. He was married to Sheree for 3 years; between 1992 to 1995.
