Jada Pinkett Smith Pens Facebook Message, Shoots Down Open Marriage Rumor

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Jada Pinkett Smith wants to make it very clear: she does not have an open marriage.

The actress stirred up some Internet buzz in an interview with The Huffington Post a couple weeks ago, telling the website she is "very relaxed" when it comes to her husband and adding:

"I've always told Will: 'You can do whatever you want as long as you can look at yourself in the mirror and be okay.'"

It's not difficult to see how this could have been misinterpreted, hence why Jada jumped on Facebook yesterday and penned the following clarification:

Open marriage?

Let me first say this, there are far more important things to talk about in regards to what is happening in the world than whether I have an open marriage or not. I am addressing this issue because a very important subject has been born from discussions about my statement that may be worthy of addressing.

The statement I made in regard to, “Will can do whatever he wants,” has illuminated the need to discuss the relationship between trust and love and how they co-exist.

Do we believe loving someone means owning them? Do we believe that ownership is the reason someone should “behave”? Do we believe that all the expectations, conditions, and underlying threats of “you better act right or else” keep one honest and true? Do we believe that we can have meaningful relationships with people who have not defined nor live by the integrity of his or her higher self? What of unconditional love? Or does love look like, feel like, and operate as enslavement? Do we believe that the more control we put on someone the safer we are? What of TRUST and LOVE?

Should we be married to individuals who can not be responsible for themselves and their families within their freedom? Should we be in relationships with individuals who we can not entrust to their own values, integrity, and LOVE…for us???

Here is how I will change my statement…Will and I BOTH can do WHATEVER we want, because we TRUST each other to do so. This does NOT mean we have an open relationship…this means we have a GROWN one.

Case closed.
