Jada Pinkett Smith will speak openly about her “complicated” marriage to Will Smith before the Oscar blunder.
After the actor’s infamous slap at Chris Rock during the Oscars, the Smith family came under fire. Pinkett Smith is working on a new memoir as she and her family recover from the incident.
PEOPLE shared a press release it obtained about the 51-year-old star’s untitled memoir. According to reports, she will have it published by Dey Street Books.
“[The memoir] chronicles lessons learned in the course of a difficult but riveting journey – a rollercoaster ride from the depths of suicidal depression to the heights of personal rediscovery and the celebration of authentic feminine power.”
According to reports, Pinkett Smith’s book will be uncensored as she tells her life story, including her complicated relationship with Smith. It will be included in the “heart of the powerful book,” along with Pinkett Smith’s incredible love story with herself.
Carrie Thornton, VP and editorial director at Dey Street Books, has already expressed her company’s excitement about sharing Pinkett Smith’s story with the world.
Details about the two’s complicated relationship have yet to be revealed, but the memoir will follow Will’s bestselling 2021 memoir, “Will,” and the Oscars gaffe.
Although the specifics are unknown, the couple has publicly discussed how their relationship hit rock bottom.
Years ago, the talk show host had an affair with August Alsina. It happened four and a half years ago while she was separated from Will.
The “King Richard” actor stated that they decided to split at that time to figure out how to be happy.
They married in 1997 and have two children together.
Smith became the subject of the “Crying Will Smith Meme” following the conversation of the couple’s “Red Table Talk” episode. He addressed it in his YouTube video, claiming that his eyes were only watery because he drank so much coffee, dehydrating his body.
Following their marital difficulties, they now face new challenges in their lives together, including the aftereffects of the Oscars slap. The most recent update came from a YouTube video called “It’s been a minute.”
Smith said he felt less ashamed after getting a weight off his chest by apologizing for his actions at the time.
