What happened with Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith before Liza Koshy entanglement rumors

Smith saw Pinkett Smith for the first time on the set of her TV show, A Different World. Although he ended up marrying Sheree Zampino months later, he never forgot about Pinkett Smith. He said they continued to have “several near misses” in the early ‘90s. In 1995, the couple started dating after Zampino filed for divorce. After two years together, the pair got married and welcomed their son Jaden Smith. Three years later, they had Willow Smith. 

As their marriage progressed, the couple faced rumors about them having an open relationship. Additionally, reports accused both actors of being unfaithful with their co-stars. In 2015, Smith and his Focus castmate Margot Robbie were romantically linked. For Pinkett Smith, she and Marc Anthony endured dating rumors while they worked together on HawthoRNe

While the Smiths rarely discussed their infidelity rumors, they came forward about a dark time in their marriage in July 2020. In an interview with Angela Yee, Alsina confessed that he and Pinkett Smith were involved in a romantic relationship around 2017. He also shared that her husband didn’t mind. Weeks later, Pinkett Smith and Smith confirmed on Red Table Talk that they were in a difficult place in their relationship when she had an “entanglement” with the singer. However, she ended it once the couple decided to work on their marriage.

The pair have created several videos since 2018, including one of them having a surf competition. Also, the influencer was one of the actor’s guests on his Snapchat series Will From Home. While many fans gushed about their acting similarities, some used their videos to depict a possible romance. 

“I like how Liza has the same energy as Will,” one YouTube commenter said.

“Will clearly has a type!” a third fan exclaimed.
