However, Will and his ex-wife, Sheree Zampino, also have another older son, Trey, 30.During her Jay Shetty Podcast appearance, the star revealed that she was 23 when she and Will started dating. She felt they were young and practically babies when they committed to each other and tried figuring out marriage.

Will was 29, and Jada was 26 when they tied the knot in front of around 100 guests. Jada has since written a book that gave some shocking revelations about the status of her marriage to Will. The two stars’ union has experienced challenges that led them to make a tough decision.

What Did Jada Say about Her Marriage to Will?
While recently promoting her new memoir “Worthy,” during her interviews, she answered questions that set the record straight on her marriage to Will. The two are among Hollywood’s power couples and have weathered ups and downs ever since they got married.

While speaking to Hoda Kotb on “Today” in an NBC primetime special, Jada revealed she and Will have been separated since 2016. The mother of two said the couple had been living completely separate lives close to 20 years after they exchanged vows.As much as Jada and Will are legally married, they haven’t been romantically involved since 2016. However, in public, they denied the rumors, in 2017, the actress told Andy Cohen that they’d been together for 23 years and received applause.

When asked how she kept their marriage “hot,” the celebrity struggled to find an answer. For years afterward, they continued pretending to be a happily married couple, even when they faced a scandal about Jada having an “entanglement” with a family friend.

Jada agreed that their separation isn’t a divorce on paper but is technically still a divorce. The actress said the two kept their separation private because they were trying to figure out how they could still be in a partnership together.

The 52-year-old also confessed that she was surprised when Will slapped Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars when the comedian made fun of her bald head. The actress was shocked mostly when Will referred to her as his wife since they hadn’t called each other wife and husband in a long time. Jada, who suffers from alopecia, was also really worried about Will after he slapped Chris.
