Will Smith’s first marriage was to actress Sheree Zampino back in 1992 was not meant to be.
On Monday’s episode of Red Table Talk, the 50-year-old actor revealed that he ‘cried uncontrollably’ in a restaurant bathroom after realizing he married the wrong woman.
‘It was one of the most bizarre emotions I ever had. We were at The Palm [in NYC] and I remember I had to get up from dinner when I had a realization that I wasn’t with the person I was supposed to be with,’ he said.Smith continued: ‘I went in the bathroom and I broke down in tears. I was sitting in a stall and I was crying uncontrollably and laughing. I knew [Jada] was the woman I was supposed to be with but I was never getting divorced.’
For years, Will had every intention of starting up a relationship with Jada Pinkett Smith.
‘I have a thing, I recognize when I see a person if our relationship can be exponential,’ he explained. ‘When I saw [Jada] on A Different World, I knew that there was something in our energy that would be magic.’
At a Thursday night taping of A Different World—a Cosby Show spinoff—Will planned to meet Jada but ended up hitting it off with Sheree, who was also sitting in the audience.
The couple later married and gave birth to son Trey Smith, now 25.
Smith and Pinkett met years later at a mutual friend’s party.
We sat down at The Baked Potato [in Los Angeles] and talked,’ Will said. ‘There was a really unique, beautiful power. We had that moment and we connected, but I was married.’
Jada added: ‘We did not have an affair while he was married. Let’s be clear about that.’
Sheree would later file for divorce in 1995 on Valentine’s Day.
