Indeed, in a pretty burgundy suit, he was accompanied by his wife Jada – who wore a long and magnificent white dress -, by his son Jaden – with an original look -, as well as by his daughter Wilow, surprising in a Gothic style. Note that Trey, the eldest son of the hero of Men in Black, born of his previous relationship with Sheree Zampino, was also present, in a jacket matching his father’s outfit.

A political gesture

The last time the Smith family was reunited in this way, in front of the cameras, was at the 94th Academy Awards on May 27 in Hollywood. An evening synonymous with success for the actor and his family – since he had been elected best actor for his performance in The Williams Method – but also at the origin of a huge controversy, of which everyone, or almost, s remember…

Indeed, that evening, the artist from Philadelphia had lost his temper with comedian Chris Rock, who had joked about his wife’s alopecia. A joke that did not pass at all for Will Smith who, in a fit of madness, had gone on stage to slap the actor. Something to shock the public and Internet users. A stroke of blood which earned him a heavy sanction, since he was banned from the event for another 10 years. Recall that he apologized in stride, notably describing his gesture as “unacceptable” and “inexcusable”. Fault confessed, fault half forgiven? Everyone is free to think so!
