Jada Pinkett-Smith fuels 'open marriage' rumours

JADA Pinkett-Smith has sparked new speculation that she and husband Will Smith share an open marriage, telling radio host Howard Stern, "I'm not his watcher".

Speaking about her 17-year marriage to the former Fresh Prince star, she admitted she's also warned her children against getting married, saying: "Heck yeah, don't do it."

Stern raised the topic, asking the actress about comments made during an Oprah Winfrey interview in 2013, when she said her husband could sleep with another woman "as long as he could look at himself in the mirror".

Pinkett-Smith told Stern: "Look I'm not here to be anybody's watcher. I'm not his watcher. He's a grown man."

"Here's what I trust. The man that Will is, is a man of integrity. So he's got all the freedom in the world.


"So as long as Will can look at himself in the mirror and be OK? I'm good."

She also admitted the couple are open about who they find attractive.

"Just because your man is attracted to another woman doesn't mean he doesn't love you. It doesn't mean he's going to act on it.'

The couple have been plagued by reports of infidelity in recent months but Pinkett-Smith was quick to defend her husband.

"He's a man of great integrity."
