"For years and years, there's been a lot of speculation about us and our family," as Will Smith said. But what has that called for? Hang on while we walk you through one of America's most captivating families over the years.

The Smiths

He was a rising superstar; She, a devoted wife with talents of her own. Together, Will and Jada went on to become The Smiths: One of Hollywood's most unstoppable families. But that doesn't mean it was easy.

From infamous entanglements to unconventional parenting - to everything in between - perhaps there's more to the seemingly perfect family than meets the eye. Let's go back to the very beginning as we dig deeper inside the Smiths' rise to fame and fortune.

Will Was the 'Fresh Prince'

Long before his path led him towards Hollywood, Will Smith actually had his sights set elsewhere: Bel-Air. Back in 1990, at just a little over 20-years-old, the young star caught himself a big break. He was the Fresh Prince now, a role that'd change his life forever.

After starring on our TV screens for 6+ years, the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actor was just getting started. He had a promising career laid out in front of him. One that would soon morph Will into the international star we know him as today. But that wasn't the only reason the sitcom changed him.

He Met Jada on Set

"I don't know what it was… [but] I knew that there was something in our energy that would be magic," Will revealed of the moment he met his future soulmate. In 1994, as 19-year-old Jada Pinkett found her way onto the Fresh Prince set, fate had different plans for her.

You see, the aspiring actress's time in Bel-Air was cut short: Her audition for the role of Will's on-screen girlfriend was deemed unsuccessful. Nonetheless, the sparks were undeniable. And in only a matter of time, Will and Jada's love story would truly take off.

Will Was Already Married

It's hard to picture a time where Will and Jada weren't by each other's side. But back in 1994, Will was already a taken man. The actor had married his girlfriend, Sheree Zampino, two years before fate brought him and Jada together. Which meant that while he couldn't keep his mind off of her, he certainly tried to.

In fact, as Will himself put it, he was never planning on getting divorced - it simply happened. If things had gone differently? The confused star would have "went back out, sat back down with Sheree, and started going back on with his life." Of course, though, we know that's not how this story ends.

Their Marriage Ended

While Will continued to carry on with his life, he soon realized just how hard it would truly be. In fact, it was practically impossible. "I had a realization that I wasn't with the person that I was supposed to be with," he explained. Instead, "I knew [Jada] was the [one]."

Ironically enough, though, Will's mind was actually more confused than ever. You see, if you asked him? "I was happy that I figured it out, but devastated emotionally." In his head, "[I thought] it was never gonna happen." Sure enough, he was wrong: On February 14, 1995, his wife of three years officially filed for divorce.

The Start of Will & Jada

Will was more than ready for what the future had in store. And as the newly divorced star made his way down those courthouse steps, he knew exactly what he was going to do next. "I remember [after signing divorce papers]... I walked out of there and... I had Jada's number," Smith revealed. "I literally called [her]."

“Cool, you’re seeing me now,” Smith recalled of the sly words Jada was met with. How did his love interest respond? In the blink of an eye, the smitten star packed a bag as she said goodbye to her hometown of Baltimore to join Will in L.A. And the rest was history.

Making it Official

It all happened so fast. In the span of months, Will and Jada went from engaged to expecting a child – to Mr. and Mrs. Smith. It all started in November of ’97, as the actor got down on one knee to pop the question. Little did they know the events that would soon transpire.

"I was like, 'What am I gonna do now?'" Jada recalled of the panic that crept in the following day. She was pregnant; Something neither of them had planned for. What they did know, though, was that they loved each other. So, on New Year's Eve 1997, the two exchanged "I Do"s as they braced themselves for the future.

Becoming a Family

On July 8th, 1998, Will and Jada Smith welcomed Jaden Christopher Syre Smith. From the minute he was born, nothing about him was ordinary. "It took me 20 minutes to [deliver him]," the proud mom gushed. "My mother's a nurse, and she was in there with me, and she was amazed!"

Their little baby boy had officially turned them into a family. And in only a matter of time, Jaden would follow in his parents' footsteps. But long before the child was propped into the spotlight, the Smiths welcomed another addition to their family.

Welcoming Willow

About two years later, the Smiths were officially a family of four. On October 31st, 2000, Will and Jada welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world: Willow Camille Reign Smith. And just like her brother, the child was named after her proud parents.

Except that's not the only similarity she shared with mom and dad. Years down the line, young Willow's talents would also help morph her into a star. But before the child's life was turned around, there were other major changes inside the Smith household. At least where her father was concerned.

Will's Career Reached New Heights

From kicking off a music career to endless Golden Globe nominations, Will Smith was just getting started. As the years continued to fly by, so did the success the actor welcomed with open arms. In fact, by the early 2000s, the rising star had officially taken Hollywood by storm.

Their Big Breaks

As we already know, Jaden and Willow ticked off a whole lot during their time in the spotlight. It all started back in '06, when we watched an adorable 8-year-old boy join his father on our screens. Of course, we're talking about the moment Jaden made his film debut in Pursuit of Happyness. And it's only been up from there.

From co-starring alongside dad to critically acclaimed roles, the child-star has made quite the name for himself. And that's not even mentioning his recent musical successes. As for his sister? After her debut hit single, Whip My Hair, the little legend managed to ink a deal with Jay-Z's label, Roc Nation. (Remember that?)

Friends in High Places

What comes next when you've got record-breaking deals and hoards of screaming fans? A-list acquaintances, of course. It's no surprise the Smiths have picked up some pretty famous friends along the way. But aside from Jay-Z, who else grew fond of Will's talented family?

From Oprah to Tom Cruise, it's pretty hard to find a face out in Hollywood who wasn't in the family's circle. Then again, there's a reason Will's title as the Fresh Prince still stands to this very day. He was as charming as he is talented, something that propped him onto our screens back in 1990.

Was there any truth to the rumors? In only a matter of time, Will and Jada rushed to share their side of the story. And they had lots to say. "The rumors circulating… are completely false," they assured. As for the reports of their alleged split? "I'm not commenting," Jada's rep answered, leaving fans with even more questions.

The Turning Point in Their Relationship

Whatever the truth behind the swirling rumors may have been, everything changed months later; The moment Jada rang in her 40th birthday. It should have been a joyous occasion, celebrated by those near and dear. And while it was rung in alongside family and friends, it was far from happy times.

"I was just like, 'I can't do this like this anymore,'" Jada revealed of "the turning point in their relationship:" An elaborate birthday party - all put together by her eager husband. But it didn't end well. "She told me the party was the most ridiculous display of my ego," Will revealed. "I was crushed because it was true."

But even more so, people were pointing the finger at a different face: Margot Robbie, who fans were convinced had cozied up to Will, her Focus costar. "Will and I BOTH can do WHATEVER we want, because we TRUST each other," Jada hit back. "This does NOT mean we have an open relationship… this means we have a GROWN one."

Instead? *Enter the mysterious "circle of safety."* So long as Jaden and Willow admit to any wrong doings they may have done in the past, they won't be punished for them.

Oscars Slap

Fast forward to the 2022 Oscars, and things took a sudden turn for us all. Chris Rock took center stage as host for the third time when he was presenting the award for Best Documentary and threw in a joke about Jada. "Jada, I love ya. G.I. Jane 2, can't wait to see ya." And well, that didn't roll over well with Will.

Jada wasn't too impressed with the joke - but at first, we saw a laugh come from Will. However, when the actor took the stage at the award show, he smacked Rock right across the face, and the world was left completely shocked. "Will Smith just smacked the **** out of me," Rock exclaimed. And that was the beginning of the end.

Her Condition

So what was it about the joke that riled up Smith? Well, Jada was diagnosed with alopecia back in 2018 and has been very open about her "issues with hair loss." Alopecia can be hormonal, heredity, or a medical condition that causes one's scalp or body to lose hair.

"It was terrifying when it first started," Jada shared on Red Table Talk. "I was in the shower one day and had just handfuls of hair in my hands, and I was just like, 'Oh my god, am I going bald?'" So, when Rock made the G.I. Jane reference to Jada, he upset the couple more than he could have ever imagined.

Jada Speaks Out

Although the couple kept a relatively low profile following the incident, they eventually spoke up on the matter. Jada took to Red Table Talk to share her thoughts. "My deepest hope is that these two intelligent, capable men have an opportunity to heal, talk this out, and reconcile."

Pinkett Smith said, "Will and I are continuing to do what we have done for the last 28 years, and that's... figuring out this thing called life together."

Will's Explanation

A few months after the Oscars slap, Will finally spoke out after posting an emotional video all over his social media. "It's all fuzzy," Smith said during his six-minute apology video. "I've reached out to Chris, and the message that came back is that he's not ready to talk, and when he is, he will reach out."

Smith continued, "So I will say to you, Chris, I apologize to you. My behavior was unacceptable, and I'm here whenever you're ready to talk." The actor shared that he has spent the last three months "replaying and understanding the nuances" of what happened on stage. However, he had yet to apologize to the comedian personally.

However, what we didn't know, is that the comedian attempted to get in touch with Will after Jada announced she had an affair. Rock called Smith, someone he had really admired in the past, to offer his "condolences" over the matter, but he revealed the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air never called him back.

Firing Back

During his stand-up performance, Rock spent a solid 10 minutes digging out the couple's relationship. "Will Smith practices selective outrage because everybody knows what the f*** happened," Rock told the audience. "I had nothing to do with that s***. I didn't have any entanglements."

Rock hadn't shared much information about that night until his special, so of course, people are dying to know what went down. The comedian admitted he had "rooted for Will Smith my [his] whole life." But now? He watches Emancipation to see the actor get "whooped," he joked.

She told the publication, "I see my whole family as being human, and I love and accept them for all their humanness." She explained, "Because of the position that we're in, our humanness sometimes isn't accepted."
