Long, who appeared on the "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" with Smith, appeared on a video chat with Omar Epps to speak about love while living in the spotlight.

She said that sharing yourself with the world was a lot of pressure, referring to the couple who had a candid conversation for the Facebook series. She added,

"I feel bad for Will and Jada right now, because they've been extremely vulnerable with their personal story. And it takes a lot of courage to do that."

Long also believes that the trick to a successful relationship is giving your partner room to be themselves, even if that means taking a break.

She added that she hoped the public would "back off" and leave the couple alone, saying that love is a complicated thing.

Recently a video surfaced that seemed to show the "Bad Boys" actor alluding to the breakup.

Recently, a video surfaced that seemed to show the "Bad Boys" actor alluding to the breakup, with Smith saying he wanted her to be happy. He said,

"And we decided that we were gonna find our individual, internal private separate joy, and then we were going to present ourselves to the relationship and to each other already happy."

Smith and his wife have been married since 1997 and the couple has two children, Jaden and Willow. The actor also has another son from his previous marriage.

Pinkett-Smith revealed that the "entanglement" between her and Alsina happened when the couple had split up, and she had been helping the singer with his health.

The pair had previously addressed rumors that they had an open marriage, which Pinkett-Smith denied on a Facebook post.

On it, she wrote that while she had said, "Will can do whatever he wants," it meant that they trusted each other and had a "grown" relationship, not an open one.
