Fans are bringing back Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith's comments on their relationship from over the years since their separation.

In the wake of Jada Pinkett Smith's revelation that she and Will Smith have been separated since 2016, fans have been resurfacing their comments on their relationship from throughout the years since. In particular, comments on Jada's infamous "entanglement" with August Alsina are popping up.

As for Pinkett-Smith's latest remarks, she explained during Wednesday’s episode of the Today show that the two aren't divorced but have been separated all these years. As for why they haven't made that public until now, she explained: “[We were] still trying to figure out between the two of us how to be in partnership, right, and in regards to how do we present that to people. And we hadn’t figured that out.” She also recalled: “I think by the time we got to 2016, we were just exhausted with trying. I think we were both kind of just still stuck in our fantasy of what we thought the other person should be.”
