In the Father’s Day episode of Red Table Talk, Will Smith is getting up close and personal about his divorce from his first wife, Sheree Fletcher.
The actor sat down for a candid one-on-one conversation with his wife and host of RTT, Jada Pinkett-Smith as they talked through raising his 27-year-old son, Trey, with his ex-wife.
"I want to talk about one interesting concept that you’ve brought up quite a bit in regards to Trey and divorce — and the idea being that just because a man might not be the best husband, does not mean he isn’t a good father," Pinkett Smith, said.
Happily married to his wife of 23-years, Will revealed his surprising reaction to his divorce, "With Sheree and with Trey, that was a really difficult time. Divorce was the worst thing in my adult life, divorce was the ultimate failure for me,” he said.
Later adding, “I’ve been hurt a lot in my adult life, but I don't think anything touches the failure of getting divorced from my 2-year-old son’s mother."
