Jada and Will Smith’s marriage was unexpectedly saved by the infamous incident where Will Smith slapped Chris Rock during a stand-up comedy show.
In an interview with Daily Mail, Jada revealed that the event was a pivotal moment in her life, causing her to realize she would never leave Will.
She referred to the aftermath of the incident as the “holy slap,” emphasizing that it led to positive developments.
“That moment of the sh!t hitting the fan is when you see where you really are. After all those years trying to figure out if I would leave Will’s side, it took that slap for me to see I will never leave him. Who knows where our relationship would be if that hadn’t happened?”
Jada expressed her gratitude to everyone who attended the ceremony, despite almost missing it, and highlighted the positive outcomes that followed the incident.
Her words followed a previous interview where she declared her desire to be with Will Smith forever.
Although the couple has faced their fair share of struggles in recent years, it was this unexpected altercation that ultimately sparked self-reflection, personal growth, and the healing of their relationship.
