MORE ABOUT ZAMPINO
Before Pinkett, Smith was married to Zampino for three years which resulted to their son Trey. Speaking about what it's like being labeled as the ex-wife of a mega-famous actor, Zampino expressed:
"It's not my label, and I can't control the labels that other people put on me."
His first wife remains close to him and the rest of his family - Pinkett, Willow, and Jaden. She attended Smith's 50th birthday, where he decided to go bungee jumping.
Power couple Pinkett and Smith went through a largely public controversy concerning the former's involvement with August Alsina. According to the actress, Smith was on board with the so-called affair.
However, the two have since reconciled. They have a unique relationship preferring to call themselves 'life partners' instead of the conventional term; 'married.'
Pinkett has claimed that she had some celebrity help while going through this difficult time in her marriage with Smith. She named Salma Hayek, Pauletta Washington, and Ruby Dee as her confidantes.
According to the gifted performer, these three women shared their own struggles with her. This, in turn, helped her understand what she and her husband were going through at the time.
