For years, two of the most powerful people in Hollywood have been plagued with rumors about their long lasting relationship. They've been called swingers, people think that Will Smith
is bisexual, folks believed that Jada Pinkett
had an affair with Marc Anthony
. All of which neither have been confirmed or denied.
But what seems to stick out most to the public is this so called "open relationship" that they may or may not have. A few weeks ago, Jada interview on the Huffington Post
where she gave a broad statement about their relationship. It made people believe that it was indeed an open relationship.
Well, since then folks have been running off at the mouth and the world wants more clarification. So Jada gave them just that. She took to her Facebook page and simply posted "Will and I BOTH can do WHATEVER we want."
Check it out below.
Open marriage?Let me first say this, there are far more important things to talk about in regards to what is happening in the world than whether I have an open marriage or not. I am addressing this issue because a very important subject has been born from discussions about my statement that may be worthy of addressing.
The statement I made in regard to, "Will can do whatever he wants," has illuminated the need to discuss the relationship between trust and love and how they co-exist.Do we believe loving someone means owning them? Do we believe that ownership is the reason someone should "behave"?
Do we believe that all the expectations, conditions, and underlying threats of "you better act right or else" keep one honest and true? Do we believe that we can have meaningful relationships with people who have not defined nor live by the integrity of his or her higher self? What of unconditional love? Or does love look like, feel like, and operate as enslavement? Do we believe that the more control we put on someone the safer we are? What of TRUST and LOVE?
Should we be married to individuals who can not be responsible for themselves and their families within their freedom? Should we be in relationships with individuals who we can not entrust to their own values, integrity, and LOVE...for us???Here is how I will change my statement...Will and I BOTH can do WHATEVER we want, because we TRUST each other to do so.
This does NOT mean we have an open relationship...this means we have a GROWN one.
With that being said........do you think it's an open relationship? CLEARLY...because she just said it!
