Briefly.co.za learned that Jada Pinkett Smith, wife to actor Will Smith discovered the man she was married to for 23 years was actually a stranger.
During her Facebook show Red Table Talk, the mother of two admitted she did not know her husband at all.
Staying indoors with Will brought out versions of the actor she had no idea existed.
In a couple of weeks, her rock-solid marriage was tested, tried, put to the fire and burnt to the ground.
“One of the things I realised was that I do not know Will at all. It is challenging. You are forced to look at things differently,” she opened up candidly.
The actress said she was tempted to fight in retaliation whenever something new popped up and she struggled so much to come to terms with the changes.
The two even had to see a marriage counsellor to make sure their union was in check.

“ I feel like there is a layer that you get to, life gets busy and you create these stories in your head, and then you hold onto these stories and that is your idea of your partner; that is not who your partner is,” the actress added.
