Hollywood couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s marriage might be on the brink of collapse. From Jada’s ‘entanglement’ with singer August Alsina to Will’s violent outbursts to keep his wife’s name out of some comedian’s mouth, the couple’s relationship has always been in the headlines, however, mostly, for the wrong reasons. 

According to media reports, Will Smith’s slapgate at this year’s Oscars seems to be the final straw of his 25-year-old marriage with Jada. 

Will “scared to death of Jada”? 

Last month, a source told In Touch Weekly that Will’s altercation with comedian Chris Rock at this year’s Oscars stemmed from the marital frustrations that he had been bottling up for years. 

“Some people think Will is scared to death of Jada, and when he saw her hurt reaction, he overcorrected trying to defend her,” the source said. 

“It’s no secret their marriage has been hanging by a thread, and after years of rumors about affairs and lies, he exploded,” the source added.

What happens if they get divorced? 

The potential divorce could come as a costly decision for the ‘King Richard’ actor, who could have his entire fortune at stake for never having signed a prenup.

 “There have been problems for years, but they’re barely speaking right now. If they were to split, Will has a fortune of $350million that Jada would be entitled to half of under Californian law,” a source told Heat Magazine, according to a report by Mirror UK.

Rumours of the couple’s potential separation come days after Will’s spiritual meeting with Sadhguru in India. 

With the Oscar fiasco being the most recent addition to the couple’s rocky marital journey, only time will tell if the slap was hard enough to end a marriage, or just Chris Rock’s habit of joking about bald heads.
