American actress Jada Pinkett Smith is set to detail her complicated marriage to Will Smith in a “no holds barred” memoir according to a report by the Hollywood Reporter.


According to the Hollywood Reporter, Jada Pinkett Smith is set to release a “no holds barred” memoir which will detail her “complicated” marriage to Will Smith. 

Jada and Will tied the knot in 1997. So, the pair have been married for 25 years and have two children together – Jaden (24) and Willow (21). Will also has a 29-year-old son Trey Smith with his first wife, Sheree Zampino.

“Jada Pinkett Smith chronicles lessons learned in the course of a difficult but riveting journey — a rollercoaster ride from the depths of suicidal depression to the heights of personal rediscovery and the celebration of authentic feminine power,” read a statement from the memoir’s publisher, Dey Street.

Jada is said to also recount her “unconventional upbringing in Baltimore”, her relationship with iconic late rapper Tupac Shakur as well as her romance with the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star.

“In crisis at age 40, Jada recounts the excruciating choices she was forced to make to redefine her life in every way,” the publisher said.

The actress is believed to also address her battle with alopecia in the memoir, which prompted the infamous Oscars slap. Her husband, Will slapped comedian Chris Rock after he mentioned Jada at the Oscars earlier this year.

Jada expressed that she hoped that Will and Chris would reconcile following the slap – on an episode of Red Table Talk.

“The state of the world today, we need them both. And we all actually need one another more than ever. Until then, Will and I are continuing to do what we have done for the last 28 years, and that’s keep figuring out this thing called life together. Thank you for listening,” she said.
