Will Smith reveals he and Jada Pinkett Smith are in an open relationship


Will Smith opened up about the revelation while promoting his upcoming memoir 'Will' with GQ magazine. Will was interviewed by Wesley Lowery who read an advanced copy of the book and noted that how the actor had not given too much detail regarding Jada's revelation because it was already made public.

"Jada never believed in conventional marriage… Jada had family members that had an unconventional relationship," Will said of his wife of 23 years. "So she grew up in a way that was very different than how I grew up. There were significant endless discussions about, what is relational perfection? What is the perfect way to interact as a couple? And for the large part of our relationship, monogamy was what we chose, not thinking of monogamy as the only relational perfection."

"We have given each other trust and freedom, with the belief that everybody has to find their own way. And marriage for us can’t be a prison. And I don’t suggest our road for anybody. I don’t suggest this road for anybody. But the experiences that the freedoms that we’ve given one another and the unconditional support, to me, is the highest definition of love," he further added.

Smith stated that he was unsure whether or not to chronicle Jada's disclosure of having an affair with Alsina and ultimately decided not to write as he felt he would be only speaking about his perspective. He said there was already misinterpretations from their episode of 'Red Table Talk' and most walked away thinking that Jada was the only one who had engaged in a sexual relationship outside marriage. Without divulging much, Will admitted he too relationships outside of their marriage.
