During a Father’s Day special of “Red Table Talk,” Will Smith opened up about what he described as his ‘Ultimate Failure,’ according to Fox News.
“I want to talk about one interesting concept that you’ve brought up quite a bit in regards to Trey and divorce — and the idea being that just because a man might not be the best husband, does not mean he isn’t a good father,” Pinkett Smith, 48, said.
“With Sheree and with Trey, that was a really difficult time.”
“Divorce was the worst thing in my adult life,” Smith, 51, continued in a clip of the episode airing on Sunday. “Divorce was the ultimate failure for me. I’ve been hurt a lot in my adult life, but I don’t think anything touches the failure of getting divorced from my 2-year-old son’s mother.”
Zampino had previously popular spoke about having aa blended family with Pinkett-Smith on Facebook Watch program.
“Do you remember that conversation we had on the phone that one time?” Pinkett Smith pressed to Fletcher. “They were fighting words.”
“You basically let me know, ‘I don’t really appreciate your tone,'” recalled Fletcher. “And you hung up on me.”
Fletcher called back and allegedly a verbal diatribe ensued.
“I happened to say, ‘B—- you living in the house I picked out,” fumed Fletcher. “You said, ‘It’s my house now.'”
Pinkett Smith revealed that soon into the war of words, Smith stepped in to mediate the situation.
“Will Smith let me have it,” Pinkett Smith recollected. “His take was, ‘That is Trey’s mother and that’s just not your place.'”
“You would always say ‘Re, I apologize,” said Fletcher. “You always owned it. Thank you for that.”
