Jada Pinkett Smith Sits Down With Will’s Ex-Wife And Shares Candid Thoughts About Dating Him While He Was Still Married To Sheree
Now get ready for some serious tea spilling that’s about to take place…

Jada Pinkett Smith got candid while opening up about her experience of dating Will Smith, while he was still married to his then-wife, Sheree Fletcher.

On the premiere episode of Jada's Facebook talk show, "Red Table Talk", Will's ex-wife was the first guest on the show.

The actress, 46, sat down with Sheree to have an open conversation about the difficulty of the challenges of a blended family.

Pinkett Smith started dating the actor while he was still married to Fletcher, with whom he shared a 3-year-old son, Trey, at the time.


Smith and Fletcher were separated at that time, but they had not officially divorced.

Twenty years later, the two women chat about their past.

Pinkett Smith said, "Because I did not understand marriage, I did not understand divorce, I probably should have fell back."

Fletcher quipped, "You think?"

The mother's discussed Jada being introduced to Smith's son, Trey, for the first time. 

Fletcher said, "So Trey comes home and I said, ‘How did you like Miss Jada?’ He said, ‘I really liked her, Mommy.'"


The "Girls Trip" star began to get emotional as as she said, "Oh my God." Will's ex-wife teared up as she said, "Thank you for loving my baby."



The actress previously opened up about the decision to have her husband's ex-wife appear on the first episode of the show.



Jada explained, "I thought it was important to have that conversation because she was my entry point to motherhood. I was co-mothering with her. At that particular time, before [having a blended family] was popular, before it was even an idea, we were trying to create something that we had never experienced."


She added, "We came from broken homes. We didn’t have a blueprint. We just had an idea. This is what we think we want. This is what we want to try to do for Trey."


Pinkett Smith hosts the Facebook show alongside her mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones and her 17-year-old daughter, Willow Smith.


Pinkett Smith previously shared, "Red Table Talk is about raw truth, love and deep passion. My mother is old school, Willow is new school, and I find myself right in the middle."


She adds, "I’ve done a lot of sharing and growing on Facebook. Being able to engage with the Facebook Watch community in such a deeply personal way is amazing, and I’m excited to be part of something new."
