Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have had an estranged relationship over the years and recently Jada revealed that she and her husband have been separated since 2016.
The 52-year-old said that they have been living “completely separate lives” and did not announce their separation before as they were “not ready” yet. Jada claimed that they were “exhausted with trying” by the time they parted ways.
Having said that, the couple said they have no intention of getting a divorce.
Following the revelation, the 55 year old MIB actor has reacted by posting a video of himself falling asleep on a boat as his phone buzzed with notifications, signalling that he was going off-grid.
In the video posted on Instagram, the ‘King Richard’ actor can be seen falling asleep in the cabin of a boat with a text overlay reading, “Fun fact about me: I can take a nap almost anywhere.” Additionally, in the video, he gets up, sits straight and shakes his head at the camera. Then, he could be seen leaning over the deck and watching over the waves during the boat ride. “Yeah, that’s pretty hot,” Mr Smith says as he talks about the view.
“Notifications off :)” the actor wrote in his caption.
Since being shared, his post has amassed around five lakh likes and eight million (eighty lakh) views.

American writer Mark Manson, famous for his book titled “THE SUBTLE ART OF NOT GIVING A F*CK” wrote, “This is true. I have witnessed it. Dude sleeps anywhere at the drop of a hat.”
Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith got married in 1997 and have two children, son Jaden Smith who is 24 years old and daughter Willow Smith who is 21 years old.
In an interview, Jada revealed that there was a point of time in her life when Chris Rock had asked her out on a date saying, “I think every summer all the reports would come out that me and Will were getting a divorce.
And this particular summer, Chris, he thought that we were getting a divorce.
“So he called me and basically he was like, ‘I’d love to take you out.’ And I was like, ‘What do you mean?’ He was like, ‘Well, aren’t you and Will getting a divorce?’ I was like, ‘No. Chris, those are just rumours.’ He was appalled. And he profusely apologised and that was that,” while speaking with the People Magazine.
The interview came ahead of the release of Pinkett Smith’s forthcoming memoir, “Worthy”, which is set to be released on 17th of October.
