Jada Pinkett Smith, renowned for her engaging discussions on Red Table Talk, has recently made headlines following a frightening incident at her Los Angeles residence. Intruders unlawfully entered her home, sparking concerns about the safety of the Girls Trip actor. However, rather than succumbing to fear, Jada demonstrated remarkable bravery by confronting the intruders, causing them to flee. Questions arose regarding whether Smith was present during the intrusion.
Indeed, the Nutty Girls actress resides in her sprawling Los Angeles mansion independently following her separation from husband Will Smith several years ago. Although the former couple continued to make public appearances for appearances’ sake, they officially parted ways in 2016. The incident occurred earlier this week, reportedly while the 52-year-old Jada was alone at home.
This incident was detailed by TMZ, which also provided insights from the police statement. According to law enforcement sources, two individuals scaled her balcony and attempted to gain entry just before 8:00 pm. However, upon being noticed by Jada, they hastily fled the scene. By the time authorities arrived, the trespassers had vanished.
TMZ speculated that the motive behind the intrusion remains uncertain, though it may have been an attempted burglary, considering the prevalence of such crimes targeting celebrity residences in the area. The case remains under investigation. Eight years have passed since Jada and Will Smith parted ways. The former couple garnered significant attention after Will Smith’s controversial altercation with Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars. Coinciding with this incident was the release of Jada’s memoir, Worthy, in October of the same year.
Despite their separation, the duo made a joint appearance at the Oscars in 2022. The startled Madagascar star initially mistook the altercation for a scripted moment, even as Will returned to his seat. Reflecting on their relationship, Jada remarked, “Instead of trying to be a thing, it’s like just tearing all that down and finding what’s true between us, and it’s been beautiful. It’s been difficult but beautiful.”
She emphasized their enduring love, stating, “At the end of the day, Will and I love each other. We had to figure out what we wanted before we went into the world to say what was going on because we were in this fragile place, and so now we’re just super solid.”
The Matrix actress further clarified her stance, expressing contentment in sharing their journey and indicating that they have no intentions of pursuing a legal divorce. This clarifies the purported absence of Will Smith and why Jada was reportedly alone during the attempted break-in.
