Will Smith and Jada Pinkett in divorce rumors after controversy at the Oscars 2022

Rumors of divorce between Will Smith and Jada Pinkett are getting stronger. Apparently, things are not going well behind closed doors in one of the most controversial couples in Hollywood. After the incident at the 2022 Oscar Awards, the situation became even more complicated and it was up to Pinkett herself who assumed that she was beginning a time of “repair”.

Since then, other comments have come to light with force that showed that the couple had weaknesses to face. Statements from 2018 resurfaced where Pinkett claimed that she never wanted to marry the actor and that she was pressured by the context.

In addition, she did not come out to defend her husband after the slap he gave Chris Rock and that meant he was banned for 10 years at the Academy. “I never said I needed protection, it was the heat of the moment, but I didn’t do it and I wouldn’t do it in any way,” it transpired that the actress said, according to statements taken up by US Weekly.

The scandal of the Oscar Awards 2022 seems to have been a turning point in the couple and close sources assure that the divorce would be imminent.

“Following the Oscars scandal, the tensions between them have been palpable,” a source told Heat Magazine. “It could be one of the ugliest divorces in show business history and go on longer than of Angelina and Brad”. It is worth mentioning that Smith’s fortune is estimated at 350 million dollars, which according to California law should be divided in half for his wife and mother of his children in the event of a legal separation.
