Will Smith's first wife Sheree Zampino appeared on Jada Pinkett-Smith's Red Table Talk yesterday (October 20th). During the episode, Zampino spoke on her divorce from Smith back in 1995.
Jada admitted that she started dating Smith too soon after the divorce. She said, “When I look back at how much was put on us and how much was put on you because we were so young and it was so public and it was so fresh. Like, you really didn’t even have time to adjust.”
She added, “You had no time. I didn’t understand that, cause you know, it was like a boyfriend.”
Jada went on, “I would have definitely had taken a beat as far as putting myself in the dynamic of you guys. Let’s give this a year, let’s let you two just flesh out whatever y’all have to figure out.”
Sheree recalled when Jada apologized to her for dating Will too soon, saying, “You were teary, you were very emotional and you said, ‘I just didn’t know.’ And basically what you were saying is, ‘I was in the picture too soon’ … and you apologized for that.”
