0

Old footage of Jada Pinkett Smith revealing her 40th birthday party was a ‘ridiculous display’ of her husband Will’s ‘own ego’ has resurfaced following the Oscars slap drama.

The two, who have been married since 1997, spoke on an episode of Red Table Talk, the Facebook show that Jada, now 50, hosts with their daughter Willow, 21, and mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris, 68.

During the conversation, the two confirmed that the incident was the “turning point” in their relationship, which led to Jada having an affair with musician August Alsina, 29.

Jada recalled, “I think the turning point in our relationship for me happened when I turned 40. That’s when I had a midlife crisis.”

Will agreed, saying, “Yeah, your 40th birthday was my low point.”

The actor, who shares daughter Willow and son Jayden, 23, with Jada, opened up about how he spent three years planning his wife’s elaborate birthday.

“The day after his 37th birthday, I hired a team to orchestrate his 40th birthday.”

Speaking to his daughter Willow, he continued: ‘I hired a documentary crew, I traced mum’s family roots. Her 40th birthday was going to be my thing!

Jada sighed, “It was going to be a splash.”

The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air actor revealed he also hired R&B superstar Mary J Blige to perform at the party.

“It was going to be the thing that would get her out of this midlife crisis. It was going to be my most beautiful, deepest proclamation of love.

The footage comes after Will’s infamous slap of Chris Rock at the Oscars after the comedian made a joke about Jada’s bald head.

Just 40 minutes after the incident, Will won Best Actor for his portrayal of Richard Williams – father of tennis legends Serena and Venus – in the biopic King Richard.

Will issued a public apology to Chris the following evening – saying his behavior was “unacceptable and inexcusable”.

The star wrote in an Instagram post that he was “embarrassed” by his actions, which shocked ceremony attendees, producers and viewers, and sparked a furious debate that divided both stars and the viewers.

“Violence in all its forms is toxic and destructive,” he wrote.

“My behavior at the Oscars last night was unacceptable and inexcusable. Jokes at my expense are part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally.

“I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of place and I was wrong. I’m embarrassed and my actions weren’t indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.

Will then said sorry to the show’s organizers and producers.

Chris hasn’t responded to Will’s apology and the comedian has yet to comment publicly on the incident – but it was revealed in the hours after the slap he had chosen not to press charges against the actor.

Several of Smith’s next films were put on hiatus indefinitely due to the slap, and a bidding war over the rights to his memoir quickly died down.

Will resigned from the Academy on Friday calling his actions at the ceremony “shocking, painful and inexcusable”, adding that he would accept any further consequences issued by the Academy’s Board of Governors.

“The list of those I have hurt is long and includes Chris, his family, many of my dear friends and loved ones, everyone in attendance and a global audience back home,” Smith said. “I betrayed the trust of the Academy. I deprived the other nominees and winners of their opportunity to celebrate and be celebrated for their extraordinary work. My heart is broken.’

He has until next week to formally defend his actions in a written letter to the Academy before the board meets to decide what punishment is deemed appropriate for his assault on the presenter.
