He appeared in his second wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s talk show Red Table Talk when he admitted.
The couple spoke of raising Trey, the son of Will and Sheree, now 27, and the difficulty of separation for him because Trey was only a small child at the end of the marriage.
Speaking of the subject, Jada said, “I want to talk about an interesting concept you touched on a little bit about Trey and divorce – and the idea being that it’s not because a man doesn’t isn’t the best husband that doesn’t mean he’s not a good father. ”
Will explained, “With Sheree and Trey, it was a really tough time.
“Divorce was the worst thing in my adult life, divorce was the ultimate failure for me. “
He added, “I have suffered a lot in my adult life, but I don’t think anything affects the breakdown of my 2-year-old mother’s divorce. ”
Will married Jada in 1997.
They share two children: her son Jaden, 21, and daughter Willow, 19.
Sheree appeared in the first episode of Red Table Talk in May 2018 where she and Jada talked about their relationship.
They revealed that they once had an argument over the phone when Jada called Sheree to ask after Trey.
Jada hung up and Will had to intervene to resolve their dispute.
