After years of pretending their parents’ marriage was intact, Jaden and Willow Smith are reportedly feeling a sense of relief now that the truth about Jada and Will Smith’s separation has been publicly revealed.
Jada Pinkett Smith, the “Girls Trip” actress, recently disclosed that she and her husband Will have been living separate lives since 2016 and have no plans to divorce. This revelation has come as a welcome relief to their children, Jaden and Willow, who felt they were put in a difficult position, constantly having to deny the true nature of their parents’ relationship.
According to insiders, Jaden and Willow are hoping that the public acknowledgment of their parents’ separation will allow the family to begin the healing process. They have been enduring an uncomfortable situation, feeling the need to cover up their parents’ issues, and the weight of this secrecy had left them agitated.
An exclusive source explained that both siblings, while loving their mother, are relieved that the truth is finally out in the open, as they believe it will help the family move forward and resolve any lingering issues.
However, Willow is said to harbor some resentment towards her mother for sharing these personal revelations publicly. She was not prepared for the negativity that has shone on her mother as a result.
Jaden, who previously sought emancipation from his parents at the age of 15, is also reportedly finding it challenging to come to terms with these latest developments.
The Smith family has been going through a tumultuous time, and it remains to be seen how they will navigate the aftermath of Jada’s revelations about her marriage.
