Jada Pinkett-Smith and her family hear all of the scrutiny her family has come under in the last few years, but she wants you to know they’re not phased. Recent rumors that Will and Jada are on the verge of splitting, and the constant criticism of the way they’re raising their celebrity children Willow and Jaden has to be hard, but Jada is taking it all in stride. In a recent interview with Gala magazine, Jada says that nothing has changed at home. According to her, she and will spent time apart often, even before their kid’s careers, and that isn’t getting in the way of their relationship. She also says that she is letting their kids express themselves, rather than being a strict parent. Excerpts below.
On her marriage:
Every year, a celebrity couple is on the radar. This year, unluckily, it’s us! I almost want to say that we should have been expecting it. But Will and I know the truth. We are waiting peacefully for when the storm ends.
These rumors are completely untrue. I’m traveling a lot because of my work, as Will does. And the fact that I’m accompanying our daughter, Willow, on her trips, while Will spends time with our son, Jaden, doesn’t make things easier. But our way of living hasn’t changed. Before the children, we were already away from each other quite often because of our work.
In general, Will and I take two months of holiday, at the end of the year. Right after Thanksgiving, we shut down the curtain and nothing comes to bother our family life until January.
Jaden is almost 14 and Willow 11, and as a mom, I’m really proud to see them following their passions. With Will, we let them enough space to let them express themselves and reach their dreams. We are avoiding to live through them.
I spent my youth in the streets of Baltimore, drugs were circulating at home. Will had a tough youth as well. So, you know, I’d rather than Jaden and Willow grow up in Hollywood than with drug addicts.
What do you guys think? Are Will and Jada putting on a front or is the media reaching yet again? Is their style of parenting best for the children?
