Jada Pinkett Smith doubles down on her ‘open marriage’ comments, makes it worse


Well it looks like Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith aren’t really the committed couple having sex on a moment’s notice they tried to portray a few years ago. You can revisit those asinine moments here and here. That was in 2009 and 2010, and a lot can change in a relationship in three years. So now Will is probably off having hot sex with randoms instead of with Jada, and Jada is kind of talking around it.

In an interview with the Huffington Post earlier this month, Jada was asked if she and Will had an open relationship, and she didn’t say “no.” She also got really intense when she said that she told Will he could do what he wanted, only she sounded mad about it and then explained why she wasn’t going to ditch Will for cheating. At least that’s what I read into it. She said, in part, “I’ve always told Will, ‘You can do whatever you want as long as you can look at yourself in the mirror and be okay’… I don’t think it’s easy to be married to anyone. I think that you have to go into a relationship knowing, especially when you’re dedicating yourself to someone for the rest of your life, this is a life partnership… And so that’s something you can never take away.” That’s not a denial that they have an open relationship

Anyway Jada thought that she didn’t explain herself well enough in that interview, so she went on Facebook to try and clarify what she said and she made it way worse:

Open marriage?

Let me first say this, there are far more important things to talk about in regards to what is happening in the world than whether I have an open marriage or not. I am addressing this issue because a very important subject has been born from discussions about my statement that may be worthy of addressing.

The statement I made in regard to, “Will can do whatever he wants,” has illuminated the need to discuss the relationship between trust and love and how they co-exist.

Do we believe loving someone means owning them? Do we believe that ownership is the reason someone should “behave”? Do we believe that all the expectations, conditions, and underlying threats of “you better act right or else” keep one honest and true? Do we believe that we can have meaningful relationships with people who have not defined nor live by the integrity of his or her higher self? What of unconditional love? Or does love look like, feel like, and operate as enslavement? Do we believe that the more control we put on someone the safer we are? What of TRUST and LOVE?

Should we be married to individuals who can not be responsible for themselves and their families within their freedom? Should we be in relationships with individuals who we can not entrust to their own values, integrity, and LOVE…for us???

Here is how I will change my statement…Will and I BOTH can do WHATEVER we want, because we TRUST each other to do so. This does NOT mean we have an open relationship…this means we have a GROWN one.

Siempre,

J

Oh give me a break with those “there’s a war going on, why are you interested in little old me” excuses. You know who did that? A bunch of celebrities, but dumbass Billy Bob Thornton is the first one who comes to mind. Jada is basically saying the same thing here that she did in the Huffpo interview, that they trust each other. Nowhere does she deny that either of them sleep with other people, and that’s their prerogative! If they have an understanding about it, good for them. But if Jada was so ok with that, why does she feel the need to keep justifying herself? She should have just let it slide after she said all that stuff in the Huffpo interview. As it is, she opened up the whole issue again. Maybe that’s what she wants though. Maybe this is her way of keeping Will on notice.

    Shocking – cause straying spouses are so uncommon, especially for actors. I’d sit down if I weren’t already.

  2. Rachel says:

    As long as everyone is a consenting adult, I don’t judge anyone for what goes on in their bedroom. Or in their marriage. People have to know what works for them, and as long as everyone in the relationship is on the same page, and you’re being open and honest, do what makes you happy.

    All that being said, I don’t want to know about it. Seriously. As far as your marriage goes, the only duty you have is to your spouse. You don’t have to make statements about your sex life or your marriage to anyone. So just don’t.

    • RN says:

      +1. Adding to that, I don’t want to hear about another person’s religion either. Your relationship with your god(s) is your business and is private. I said as much recently to someone who rang my doorbell and attempted to hand me a pamphlet with a picture of a very white Jesus with feathered hair. I told her, “I don’t come to your house unannounced and start sharing my sex life with you, so why would you come to my house and start talking about how you pray?”

    • I Choose Me says:

      Yep, yeppity, yep!

    • frenchie says:

      I have to desagree and I am sorry but the kids, specifically, and the rest of the family and friends need to know that you are faithfull to each other when you consider, identify yourself to the society, as a couple. Look how betrayed kids are when they learn the infidelity of one of his parents to the other one. We need structures, things that are for granted, and if you change that people are just going to be unbalanced, unsafe because God knows that life is already so fragile, that you need at least some stuffs for sure. You can’t live knowing that you mom or your dad is living a romance and maybe having a second family, other kids, other memories and moral & emotional commitments (or the lack of them) with strangers to you. And we have also already discussed a lot how sister wifes is not a good thing (the authorized version of infidelity and attachment that may come sometimes), so… Please, tell me your reaction and make me change my mind !

      • Rachel says:

        Frenchie, you use the word “infidelity,” which is a subjective concept. If they have an open relationship, and they are honest with each other about what they are doing, and with whom they are doing it, it’s not an infidelity with regard to their relationship.

        Is it the societal norm? No, it’s not. But I don’t judge other people because they don’t live their lives according to my values. Just as I don’t appreciate it when other people try to force their values on me.

        Also, for couples who do have open relationships, polyamorous relationships, or other non-traditional relationships, the rules are generally laid out from the start. It’s only when you break those rules that it is considered an infidelity because you’ve broken your partner’s trust.

        Different people have different perspectives on sex. For some people, sex is just a physical act, not an emotional one. Their emotional bond is with their partner. For others, sex is part of the emotional attachment, they don’t separate the two. It’s different strokes for different folks.

  3. bravocueen says:

    She just looks. . . mean.

  4. diva says:

    Jada needs to stop talking about this. People have already formed their opinion and I think her trying to explain it isn’t going to help any. I always thought they both were bearding for each other. The rumors about Will and Duane Martin being involved have been around for years. Either way I like Will never really been a fan of Jada but whatever makes them happy.

  5. Anmelt says:

    I usually don’t say this but she is waaaay too skinny and it really ages her. I am now 31 and realising that more and more I have to choose between my face and my butt. She needs a bit more meat.

    She and Will were such a power couple but I do believe there are some issues in tje marriage from the sound of things :(

  6. alc says:

    Man, she really scares me!I’d be really afraid if I was her husband or her kids. There is not one ounce of cuddle, sympathy, fun, I’ll hold your head when you’re sick, in this woman’s look. Why do we care if Will and Jada are still “together”! I’ve never really warmed up to either of them on screen and I guess off-screen, judging from my comments above!

  7. Annie says:

    Used to be a big fan of Will. Sad to hear he is an asshole. Also, what is up with his face?? That’s more than botox. Dumb man.

    Some women put up with everything to not give up their life style.

  8. Lizzie K says:

    OT and I know others have commented on this, but I really hate what Jada has done to her face. She looks like Lil’ Kim, and that is not a compliment.

    On-topic, I’ve assumed for years that these two beard for each other. Maybe true, maybe not, and I don’t really care one way or the other. My problem is that they seem to be raising a couple of really bratty entitled kids.

  9. Janet says:

    Jada’s looking a lot like Little Kim….

  10. Earth to Kelly says:

    I wish she would stop putting stuff in her face. She looks unnatural and mean. I thought she would have a face that would age well, but she’s made it worse on her own doing

  11. lucy2 says:

    Why didn’t she just tell HuffPo “That is none of your business” and be done with it? Of course, they made their relationship everyone’s business years ago by talking endlessly about it, but still.
    Their poor kids, how embarrassing.

    • Hakura says:

      I sort of get the impression they don’t really ‘feel’ any real ‘emotional attachment’ toward their parents (like we would, disgusted by any thought of parent’s sex lives), so they probably aren’t too embarrassed about that aspect (outside just wanting them to shut up about it already.) ¬_¬

  12. ShakenNotStirred says:

    Her cheek implants are too much. She should have left her face alone. I agree with the other comments here, she does look mean.

  13. Sam says:

    Will and Jada have always struck me as personal libertarians. Will discussed that he and Jada allow their children to do basically what they want with their personal looks (style, hair) because they don’t believe they have the authority to dictate what another person does with their body or appearance. That attitude probably carries over into other areas of their lives. It’s not surprising. And its nobody’s business how they run their marriage. I will say – if they do have an open marriage, the randoms are doing a fine job of not blabbing to the press!

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      That parenting style is from Scientology. They believe children are esentially little adults and should be able to make their own rules (hence Suri cruise’s heels, super late bed times, and lack of coats in coat appropriate weather). I think it’s a totally irresponsible parenting style, just like the religion itself.

      • andy says:

        Has it ever been confirmed these two are Scientologists? I’ve read speculation about them being members, but didn’t they deny involvement w/the group.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        The rumors, their parenting style and the close relationship with Cruise always led me to believe they were scientologists. I think they saw the negative press the church was getting and didn’t want it to affect their careers. I looked into it and he did say he didn’t belong to the church, but when on to say he has studied multiple religions, including Scientology. He’s also said many complimentary things praising Scientology. Smith said, “I just think a lot of the ideas in Scientology are brilliant and revolutionary and non-religious” and “Ninety-eight percent of the principles in Scientology are identical to the principles of the Bible…. I don’t think that because the word someone uses for spirit is ‘thetan’ that the definition becomes any different.”

      • veronica says:

        It’s a cult, plain and simple.

      • Itsa Reallyme says:

        I agree. I’ve thought for quite awhile that those kids need some guidance. You can encourage a child’s individuality while still exerting some parental control. Kids need boundries.

      • Kim says:

        They are not Scientologist they have stated that many times.Scientologist are proud of their cult or religion they don’t deny being part of group.

      • SusieQ says:

        @andy,

        Didn’t they finance a school where the curriculum is scientology based and is run by scientology teachers? If that’s not a big clue, then nothing is.

        @Kim

        Yeah, scientologists always tell the truth. You can totally believe absolutely everything they say. After all, don’t they call themselves ‘the most ethical people on the planet’?

        If scientologists are so proud their ‘religion’, why hasn’t Tom Cruise been shilling for the ‘church’ recently?

      • hazeldazel says:

        @andy – they keeping denying they are Scientologists BUT their kids go to the biggie Scientology school and they’re tight with all the big $ci people. So you can make your own conclusions. It’s also been rumored for years that both Will and Jada are bi/gay and they beard for each other, and that the marriage is an arrangement. Every couple of years, they make a very try-hard statement about how very loved-up they are, or sexed-up they are, and now how trusted-up they are. Too Try Hard. Whatever.

      • Meredith says:

        The charter school that Will started is run on CO$ principles and has CO$ trained people running it. If it walks like a duck, etc.

      • Nina W says:

        People call Scientology a cult because it is not 2000 years old, is that the deal? As far as I can tell it’s not the only religion that is a social organization far more than a source of spirituality or enlightenment. If the Smithes do participate they are under no obligation to tell anyone. I would prefer if everyone did that as I don’t want to hear endlessly about people’s religious beliefs.

    • jwoolman says:

      Nina W- you’re right to be cautious about the cult label, which can be misused. But you need to read more about Scientology to see it really has earned that label. The problem is not their beliefs but rather their actions. The celebrity Scientologists have different rules and are treated relatively gently. If you look at its history, you will see that the idea of it being a religion sprang from the desire for tax exempt status. L. Ron Hubbard was a science fiction writer who said once that the way to really make money was to start a religion – and later that’s just what he did, but one mirroring his own mental instabilities and increasing psychosis.

  14. Asiyah says:

    I personally don’t think they are romantically involved anymore. I think at this point, they love each other as people, care for each other deeply, and are just really good friends…who happen to be married. Not everyone stays in love. BUT the more speculation there is about this, the more tension it brings, and it can actually crumble whatever amicable and friendly arrangement they have. If she really wants to stay happily married to Will, her best friend, she needs to shut up about this topic and just let it be.

  15. LAK says:

    The lady doth protest too much.

    It used to be ‘we are having sex all the time…look at us, humping over here!’ and now ‘we have a grown up marriage’ what the hell does that mean? Is the rest married population of the planet having juvenile marriages???!!!

    Jada, you are no intellectual.

    Go live your life however you desire.

  16. Jay says:

    Perhaps the most succinct answer to an interviewer asking “do you have an open marriage?” would be “why? Are you hitting on me?” Not sure otherwise how it should matter to anyone but her spouse.

  17. Natasha says:

    After her inital comments, i had a conversation with my mum about this and she said pretty much the same thing. You can’t threaten someone into being faithful and honestly you shouldn’t even need to have that ‘i would do X,Y,Z if you ever did this’ conversation. A marriage is about 100% trusting the other person. They have an almost 15 year relationship of course there’s shit going on which is probably coming out in her tone, but i actually think they’re pretty solid and not bearding for eachother (I have always found that rumour so ridiculous!) Also she has a hard face and has lost too much weight but i don’t get all the ‘mean’ comments.

    • Nev says:

      Word.

      My assumption is that crap happened and maybe she is still hurt about it.

    • veronica says:

      Re: the “mean comments” about Jada…you’d have to have had some experience with her over the years. She’s a nasty piece of work.

    • Nina W says:

      I agree. She said a lot of things that make sense. Relationships are never easy, no matter how much people want to say otherwise, even the best matches face challenges. I think everyone should be clear with their partner about how they feel about infidelity. My husband knows it’s a deal breaker for me. I think you should discuss these things in a relationship. It’s important to make your expectations clear. There don’t have to be any threats or anything just an honest discussion of feelings.

  18. the original bellaluna says:

    For why can’t she just stop talking? ALL of them, for that matter! Just because I watch you in a movie or on TV doesn’t mean I want to know what you’re doing in the bedroom!

  19. Dee Cee says:

    J: No. I can’t go it alone with these kids, I need to make time for myself and fame.
    .. W: Please!? Me neither..
    Uh-oh..

  20. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    She’s clearly backtracking because she’s worried the groupies will rain down on Wil if she confirms that their marriage is open.

  21. feebee says:

    Couldn’t care less what their situation is but if she’s really worried about us wasting our time on her she could have been infinitely more sussinct.

  22. Kelly says:

    They are so annoying. I used to really like Will, but, blegh, not so much now.

    Jada is giving Gwyneth a run for her money on most insufferable celeb narcissist.

    Where’s Jennifer Lawrence when you need her?

  23. Palermo says:

    He and Duane Martin are a couple. She is known to be a lesbian. I don’t care, don’t like either one of them any more.

  24. Jaded says:

    Lest we forget, this is the woman who said she “doesn’t eat for pleasure, only for nutrition”. If she treats her relationship with her husband like she treats her relationship with food (and let’s face it, most of us love good food and find it pleasurable in an almost sexy way), no wonder their marriage allows other partners for Will. She seems like a very cold, calculating person.

  25. Miss Kiki says:

    To be quite honest I’m surprised they’re still together, about 2 years ago they seemed like they were on the verge of breaking up. Someone correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t there allegedly some sort of bearding going on?

    Also JPS and Zoe Saldana are basically morphing into one entity http://www.flickr.com/photos/cocoa_lounge/390392939/

  26. Monica says:

    It makes me think of the Monica Belluci/Vincent Cassel marriage dynamic.
    He is not faithful and she accepts it. But whatever happens, they are there for each other..

  27. Jane says:

    I listen to too much Dan Savage to care that she’s in an open relationship.

  28. veronica says:

    I didn’t get past the first few lines of her statement. I can’t stomach this woman and her arrogance. She’s got a horrible, horrible attitude and she always has. It has gotten worse. It shows in her face even when doesn’t speak; she has an arrogant body language. I used to think she was one of the most beautiful women in the world until I started paying attention to things she was saying. The fact is she will never divorce Will unless he publicly humiliates her and she can then look like a valiant woman who tossed a cheater to the curb. UNTIL that happens he may cheat left and right but she won’t ever leave him because it would mean she lost. This woman will NEVER admit to losing a man. He can go on being a dog if he wants (this is why she was so angry and so intense a few weeks ago) as long as none of it goes public. Her ego, pride, and vanity keeps her in her marriage–not love and devotion.

  29. oh snap! says:

    Will and Jada’s facade is crumbling all around them. they both need to give it up because (we) the general public are not as stupid as they think. let this marriage go because no one gives a shit about your bearding for him anymore.

  30. Melissa says:

    Ugh, using “grown” as an adjective is ghetto.

  31. Yelly says:

    I can’t wait until the randoms come out of the woodwork and start talking.

  32. nuzzybear says:

    This sounds so much like a woman’s rehearsed speech to her friends and family about all the reasons her boyfriend gave her about why they don’t need to get married…

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      Ugh! I know someone like this. Planned a wedding with her high school sweetheart. They split (I’m pretty sure he cheated), then she got pregnant by some DJ she hooked up with six months after the wedding was called off. Now she’s anti-marriage because the institution is “archaic and patriarchal.”

      • Barhey says:

        I’m super surprised by how many people are anti-marriage these days. For some people I wonder if its a type of defensiveness – like it didn’t work for me, so its a bad institution overall. I’m not really sure though.

      • Nina W says:

        People are anti-marriage for silly reasons but it’s not for everyone.

      • Regina Lynx says:

        I consider this type of U-turn very puzzling. I’m very passionate about many things in my life – but I don’t go around praising that the opposite is pure evil and nobody should do it.

        A very simple example: I’m a die-hard dog person. That still doesn’t mean that I’m carrying a sandwich board that says, “Everybody should have a dog! Cats/any other pets/no pets is NOT an option!”

        Sheesh.

    • Barhey says:

      I think you put your finger on it. It’s not that I’m surprised there are people who don’t want to get married or believe in it for themselves, but I *am* surprised by how many people call it archaic, patriarchal, etc. Basically the vibe that marriage isn’t for them so it isn’t for anyone at all.

  33. spinner says:

    I know this has been said…but I’m gonna have to say it again. She looks like a bitch on wheels. I would never want to tangle with her let alone have a relationship. YIKES!!

  34. yeahright says:

    To me it sounds like she didnt WANT to specifically say “we don’t have sex with anyone but each other” because that wasnt her original point. Her point was its not about “Will can’t do this, Jada can’t do that” because that’s not how grown marriages work.

    This is how I took it at least. God, why do I have to defend scientologists?!

  35. j.eyre says:

    I love that yellow dress. Can someone get me one in sapphire blue, please?

  36. Grace says:

    Poor Jada. She’s in deep. One of Will’s lovers is going to out this nonsense and she’ll have to go into hiding.
    Does she have anything on TV or movies coming out?

  37. Itsa Reallyme says:

    Jada has always come off as somewhat angry and very preachy. I think it’s the only way she knows how to communicate. I watched those video clips she released of herself talking with her mom and Willow. She has a very harsh speaking style so I’m not sure if she’s really spilling any secrets about her marriage. It’s just the way she always is.

  38. TxGal says:

    I just can’t stand her. She has always been too uppy to me. That face is so hard not aging well.

  39. Feisty says:

    If she was putting him on notice, I have a feeling it would be via a more direct way than a facebook posting. Based on the pictures, a baseball bat or electric shocks would be involved.

  40. Original A says:

    I’ve heard that there are so many people in Hollywood that have semi-open marriages, so it wouldn’t be a shock if these two had one. Apparently, a lot of publicists have to buy up photos or make deals with tabloids to prevent it from getting out…even if their client is super discreet. I feel kind of bad for Jada and Will, though. They probably have an open marriage and are just fine with their arrangement. However, Will has to sell himself as a “mainstream” star and mainstream America generally isn’t very accepting of an open marriage. So instead of rebutting the infidelity rumors with the truth, she pens these missives. She should just ignore the tabloids.

  41. candigirl says:

    I agree with all the comments about her hard “karma” face, Jada has the outside to match her inside.
    I think they’ve had an arrangement for a long time and maybe Will is getting sloppy or more open about the down-low and she’s mad. She is also desperate for attention, her kids are growing older and she’s bored. So every month or so she has to publicly scold someone. Last month it was the “leave the Beiber alooone” rant.
    Jada needs to start her own church and then she can preach privately, and get her groove back.

  42. skuddles says:

    Well regardless of who’s boinking around, Jada likely isn’t going to clear up the confusion any time soon. Her sad little career has now completely tanked (and Wills is looking about the same) so she knows this is one way to keep people talking about them.

    As for the rumors, I remember hearing some fairly explicit details years back about threesomes and bi action. And that may very well have turned into Will (or both of them) simply screwing around. Open arrangements always seem to go south sooner or later.

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      I agree. If you’re looking outside your marriage for sexual fulfillment, you’ll find that and other things. Maybe that person who’s good in the sack is also more emotionally available and/or has interests that are more similar to yours. It makes transitioning from wife to mistress that much easier. Plus, new relationships are always fresh and exciting. Why chance exposing your spouse to that sort of temptation?

  43. Faye says:

    I just love when celebrities start with that condescending “Why are you talking about this when there are so many more important things going on in the world?” line. Funnily enough, they don’t have that objection when it’s time for you to watch one of their shows or movies, read or listen to one of their interviews pimping their latest projects, or look at their latest photo shoots. Then paying attention to them is a perfectly valid use of your time!

    If you really don’t want to answer a question, just don’t answer it. No Facebook posts, no tweets. Keep some mystery! As much as I find celeb comments on social media amusing sometimes, there are other times when I long for the good old days of Hollywood. The studios controlled the heck out of the actors, and while I’m sure they were up to just as many shennanigans as current celebs, the public didn’t hear about it, and I suspect it was easier for the public to buy into the characters they saw on screen.

  44. Faye says:

    P.S. — What has Will Smith done with his face? The lower half of it looks sort of Frankenstein-ish.

  45. mar says:

    this is not meant to be rude- because I do not discriminate against anyone-

    but as Will gets older, he really looks more gay to me.

  46. Helvetica says:

    I wish she wouldn’t have made a statement at all. It’s their business whatever they decide to do/not do. It’s their marriage.
    I feel like her addressing this story at all just brings all celebrity down a notch. Let the public think whatever they want, don’t stoop to rumor-mill levels.

    Love her yellow dress.

  47. Jess says:

    I don’t care if they have an open marriage or not. But she can’t complain about people being interested after they’ve used their sex life to promote themselves for years. I hate the hypocricy (I’m looking at you, Bennifer!). And why has she made her eyebrows thicker? I think that’s made her look more mannish and mean.

  48. Shelly says:

    I’m sorry, but I don’t take this as an admission of an open marriage. I thought she explained herself very clearly, and I totally get what she’s saying, and I totally agree with her. And no, I don’t have an open relationship either.

  49. JL says:

    Are they sleeping with me – NO.
    Are they sleeping with my husband – NO.
    That equals none of my business.

    However, if one chooses to put it out there for entertainment, hell yeah I’ll read all about it.

    If she doesn’t want to defend or comment on her sex life leave it in the bedroom.

  50. erika says:

    ugh……shutup about your personal life! esp. bedroom life.

    and ease up on the plastics babe…it’s not helping

  51. The Original G says:

    Wow, what a passionate explication of her marriage, her beliefs, her passion.

    And after all that, I still don’t give a f*ck.

  52. nikzilla says:

    Their marriage is a sham.

  53. the real mccoy says:

    this statement is not new. She said this when they were all “lovey dovey”. As a matter of fact you can probably read that statement back when Will did “Hitch”. He was talking about how attracted he was to Eva Mendes. Now 7 or 8 years later, the same statement is taken out of context and everyone got Jada rolling her eyes and crooking her neck while saying it. (eyeroll) Give ME a break!

  54. Carolyn says:

    Oh puhlease. Jada wouldn’t be so open minded if Will wasn’t worth a fortune and they weren’t living a lavish lifestyle.

    Money makes people forgive all sorts of things.

    Desperate PR ploy.

      I’m with you, Carolyn. I’ve known a few women who put up with, and justified this same sh-t because they were married to wealthy men. Unfortunately for them, their husbands eventually fell in love with other people and ended the marriage anyway, leaving them without the facade and protection of wealth and the “grown” marriage. Anyway, I’ve never been able to stand either of these two, but to each his own.

        SydneySpy are you also Australian? Aussies can spot PR BS a mile away! That’s why so many ‘reality’ shows fail over here..we don’t celebrate nonsense..we just go ‘yeah as if’ and don’t watch after the first episode :)

        I do like O/S gossip though!

    I like her. She’s doing a slow sabotage – Jada knows hubby’s political aspirations and just killing them slowly but surely – I think he cheated and she’s taking away what he wanted most: power.

  56. Laurie says:

    Jada is what one would call a “handsome woman”. I think Will has always had a thing for the ladies and, quite frankly, I think Jada does too.

  57. Isabel says:

    Something funny I once read: if people don’t answer a question head on they are lying. I haven’t heard her saying ONCE ‘NO we are not in an open relationship’. She blabs and blabs, when one sentence would have been enough. Now she is beating around the bush: aka lying.

    I think it is ‘well kept’ secret that she and Will are both gay and bearding for each other.

    Of course I can’t check if people are lying, but I have seen a ton of comments on the web of people who claim that Jada ‘was’ gay up until she went to Hollywood (dating friends of friends of the commenters etc). Of course I can’t prove this is true, but still.. Why do people take the time to lie about something like that online? If it was an A++ actress like Jolie it would have gotten exposure. In Jada’s case not so much, because she is not that high profile, so why take the time to lie about that, knowing it wouldn’t be worldnews?

      Seriously?

      People make up crazy shit online about every celebrity. Most of the stuff on the internet will NEVER be on the news because it is NOT RELIABLE.

      Oh grow up, the Internet is full of outright lies, misrepresentations, speculation and wishful thinking. Not to mention all the trolls and the haters that come crawling out of every corner of the web to share all their shit. My advice to you is don’t believe everything you read. It was true when newspapers dominated the world and it is even more true today.

    • Isabel says:

      Damn people, chill..

      ‘Seriously’ and ‘My advice to you’.

      I am not a fool ;) Just wondering why someone would make up stories about Jada, since she is pretty irrevelant in HW (not to be mean or anything). What do people get out of it?
      There have always been stories about Jada being gay, I am not making that up. Why do the rumors continue eventhough she is not such a big celebrity? Why is it being brought up everytime (I am not the only one saying it, read other people saying it above and below this post)? If it is only because of trolls, why are the rumors so persistant? Usually only the only rumors that keep floating around are about big celebrities or are simply revealed to be true.
      Call me naive, but I think this is very weird.

      And my personal opinion; they are always talking how good their sex is, and how amazing their marriage is etc etc. If you have to do that constantly it makes me feel like you are only trying to convince yourself things are amazing. (Which of course doesn’t mean she is gay, but something weird is going on with this marriage).
      Heidi Klum did the same thing ALL the friggin time and as it turns out Seal is a complete psycho.

      But I am blabbing on xD

    Who cares? They’re two consenting adults. She doesn’t have to directly answer the question if she doesn’t want to, even though what she said is tantamount to an admission. Not everyone views marriage and commitment the same way, and I don’t see why everyone has to.

  59. Louise says:

    She all high sididdy. I’m on the mutual beard train.

  60. lizbert says:

    Really the best thing to do in almost any circumstance like this would’ve been to laugh and say, “I know people will talk and I hope they have fun with it.” Really, more PR reps should advise their clients to be coy if they can anticipate these kind of questions!

  61. Heathers says:

    I just don’t see how an open marriage can work. I’ve personally known several couples who did it, and most of them were divorced within a few years. It just doesn’t make sense. A human being is very likely to develop feelings for someone that they’re sleeping with. Not every time, mind you, but at some point, someone is going to come along that makes you question the marriage in it’s entirety. People say that Americans just aren’t as “advanced” or as “evolved” as other countries that are more accepting of this lifestyle (???who???), but color me confused. I don’t think it’s evolved or advanced at all. Just excuses to be more selfish. Imagine this situation’s effect on children. Here’s a theory: if you can’t be committed, don’t enter a committed relationship. Be honest about how you can’t keep it in your pants, and less people get hurt. Especially kids. And yes, kids ARE hurt, bewildered and confused to discover their mommy and/or daddy are sleeping around because their spouse just doesn’t fulfill them enough. Ugh.

    • Ange says:

      I’ve seen it work but you’re right, it is rare. A lot of times it tends to be used by couples as a way to save the relationship which is why it usually fails. The successful ones I’ve seen involve constant communication and respect which is something you don’t even see in monogamous relationships that often so these people would probably be successful whatever type of relationship they chose. And their kids are fine with it btw. If you don’t teach them something is bad they don’t think it is!

    • Nina W says:

      An open marriage is not for me but I am an American. We’re such Puritans, clutching our pearls at the very thought, haha. But I’m not bothered by open marriages and I’m sure some of them work. As long as the people in the relationship are happy with their arrangement it’s really not for us to judge. And there is a difference between an open marriage and people getting bored and looking elsewhere.

  62. Kristine says:

    What is the big deal even if they do have an open marriage? It’s a bit insane to expect one person to be everything you need for a lifetime. If this is what works for them then so be it. As long as there is an open line of communication, trust, and respect then who gives a shit. I’ve known a few gay couples with open relationships that have been with the same partner for 2 decades but get some strange on the side. They seem happy, healthy and well balanced. Realizing that you shouldn’t demand everything from your life partner is reasonable and mature, imo.

  63. not leo says:

    What in god’s name has she done to her face?

  64. Kim says:

    I think she did a pretty good job of explaining herself and I agree with her – love does not mean owning someone. You can expect them to “act right” all the time but humans mess up and real love is about accepting the person after they’ve screwed up and blasted themselves right off that pedestal you put them on to start with.

  65. mimi says:

    I read this as: she loves him, wants to stay married to him, but he wants to sleep around, and she is willing to accept it, not to fight with him over it, and try to “live in peace” with it as much as she can.

    If that includes pretending she is OK with it then that’s part of the thing she is trying to fake in order to keep her marriage.

    Must be VERY difficult to be married to someone in such a situation.
    I feel for her.

  66. Meanchick says:

    They have no prenup. She can leave IF she wants too.

  67. Bex says:

    I don’t think requiring my husband to be faithful is ‘slavery’.

    We can both make the choice not to be faithful, but that choice has consequences, just like every other choice.
