Jada Pinkett Smith Recalls 'Crying' During Wedding to Will Smith: 'I Never Wanted to be Married'

Jada Pinkett Smith is opening up about her wedding day – and it definitely doesn’t sound like her idea of a fairytale.

During Monday night’s (October 22) episode of her Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk, the 47-year-old actress revealed that she felt pressured into marrying husband Will Smith back in 1997 because she pregnant with the couple’s first child Jaden.

“It was almost as if my mother [Adrienne Banfield-Jones] was like, ‘You have to get married,’” Jada revealed. “I was under so much pressure being a young actress. Being young, pregnant … I just didn’t know what to do. But I knew I never wanted to be married.”

Jada continued: “I was so upset that I had to have a wedding. I was so pissed…I went crying down the freaking aisle. I cried the whole way down the aisle!”

    Sounds like she is preparing the world for their upcoming divorce. People that get married only because the woman was pregnant so their child won’t be a bastard never stay together for ever. She may be in her late 50s when it happens but she will divorce him without a doubt one day.

    she’s a very very very thirsty idiot. this whole family is weird and their oversharing is obnoxious. but i guess that’s the only way they will get attention.
