Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are very much together but don’t refer to themselves as a married couple anymore.
“We don’t even say we’re married anymore,” Will, 49, told Tidal’s Rap Radar podcast in an interview released this week. “We refer to ourselves as life partners, where you get into that space where you realize you are literally with somebody for the rest of your life.
[There are] no deal breakers. There’s nothing she could do — ever — nothing that would break our relationship. She has my support till death and it feels so good to get to that space.”
Meanwhile, Pinkett Smith, 46, echoed Will’s sentiments of lifelong love.
“Here’s the thing about Will and I — [we] are family. That is never going down,” she told “Sway in the Morning” in June. “It’s just not. Ever. We are family. Take out all that whole marriage/relationship crap, at the end of the day, Will and I are family. I am going to hold him down, doesn’t matter … All that relationship and what people think ideas of a husband, partner and all that, man, whatever. At the end of the day, that is a man that can rely on me for the rest of his life, period.”
The poetic waxing comes after several years plagued with rumors of rifts, splits and an open relationship for the pair, allegations Pinkett Smith and Will have repeatedly and vehemently denied.
Still, Will previously admitted that their marriage wasn’t always smooth sailing.
