Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith have dealt with enough divorce rumours throughout the years.
And looks to me, Jada is getting tired of it.
“It seems like that happens at least once a year, or at least once every two years,” she said in the September issue of Essence.
“It’s rumored that we’re getting a divorce. But no. We’re not getting a divorce. Where am I gonna go? Where am I going to go?” she says of her 15-year marriage to Will. ”That’s my boo. It’s like he’s another part of me.”
But aside from defending her marriage, the actress mother of two has to deal with public scrutiny of her 11-year-old daughter Willow as she pursues a music career.
“How people feel about Willow is how people feel about Willow. But what I’m most concerned about is how Willow feels about herself. She’s an independent, courageous, genius, talented little girl. I’m happy for her, that she can just be who she is.”
But even though 40-year-old’s main priorities lie in the well-being of her children, it was Willow who recently made a discovery that changed her life.
After her daughter shared with the viral Kony 2012 video about child soldiers in Uganda, Pinkett Smith was driven to learn more about how she could help endangered children, specifically victims of sex trafficking.
Since then, she has urged Congress to fight trafficking, launched a website and met with victims.
“We’re all affected by this,” Pinkett Smith says. “And one woman is one woman too many. We have to extend beyond ourselves” to help those who’ve been enslaved.
And yet again, the Smiths prove they are the coolest family on the planet. Forget about the divorce rumours! Be like them and get educated about world issues!
