In a shocking turn of events, Will Smith is reportedly considering separating from Jada Pinkett Smith after she unveiled intimate details of their private life in her recent memoir 'Worthy.' The A-list actor, still reeling from the 2022 Academy Awards incident, was amidst another storm when Jada brought their matters into the public eye.

Insiders close to the situation have revealed that Will was caught entirely off guard by Jada's decision to disclose their seven-year separation in her book. "Jada’s revelations took aback will," a source disclosed, emphasizing that he was unaware of her plans to discuss their private life in such a public manner.

"She went forward with this without his consent, leaving him feeling more vulnerable and exposed than ever before,” the insider added. In a recent conversation with Heat Magazine, the source elaborated on Will’s betrayal and humiliation, mainly after Jada referred to him as her 'husband' in the book.

This surprised him, given the context of their separation. Will, evidently hurt and angry, is now contemplating cutting all ties with Jada, despite the complexity of their financial entanglements.

The couple's substantial $400 million fortune is proving to be a significant obstacle in the path to divorce, primarily due to the absence of a prenuptial agreement.

"He’s navigating this situation cautiously, aware of the financial high stakes," the insider shared. "But at this point, he's ready to end the charade and move forward with his life." Will is reportedly eager to open up space for a genuine and fulfilling relationship.

Although a part of him still holds affection for Jada, he believes that their romantic journey has reached its conclusion. "He’s looking ahead, ready to start anew and put this chapter of his life behind him," the source concluded.

This surprising revelation about the state of Will and Jada’s marriage adds another layer to the ongoing discussion about their relationship, bringing to light the complexities and challenges they have faced behind closed doors.

As the world watches, it remains to be seen how the couple will navigate these turbulent waters and what the future holds for them both.
