Will Smith’s Ex Sheree Zampino Admits Things Weren’t Always “Easy” Co-Parenting With Jada Pinkett-Smith & Will: Sometimes Moms Get Jealous
The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star admitted in a recent interview that things weren’t always “easy” or “pretty” figuring out how things would work in the blended family dynamic.
Sheree explained that with “three different dynamics, three different personalities and [three] different belief systems,” they had moments where they would all disagree on co-existing while raising Trey Smith, 29.
“My thing was with Jada it was like, as long as she treats him well, we’re good.”
Zampino confirmed that Jada has always “treated Trey well” and loves him. She continued talking about Pinkett Smith, admitting that she sometimes got “jealous” of her parenting her son.
“Then, sometimes, moms get jealous. It’s like, ‘I’m getting jealous over another woman ’cause she’s treating my child right? What? That’s insane! Don’t you want her to treat your child right?'”
However, Sheree Zampino clarified that the children are first and foremost in any situation.
“My child comes first. He really does. So it’s not about me anymore. You know, [his father and I are] not together. It’s not about me. It’s about him.”
She learned that Will and Jada shared her views when they welcomed their own children, Jaden and Willow Smith.
“Then Jaden comes along, then Willow. It is about these babies. So how do we do this where we honor them and we put them first and we don’t deprive them of any good thing.”
“Anybody could have been Trey’s mother. Anybody could have been Jaden and Willow’s mother. But the fact that He picked the three of us — He being God — I think that’s why we were able to do it and show the world.”
As we reported in an exclusive interview with Sheree, she shared advice to other women who co-parent, saying:
“All you can do is your part. The reason we can do it so successfully is because everybody is on board. Everybody’s pulling their own weight. We all have the same desired outcome and that’s to have kids that love each other and have a family that has peace. We got peace, we have joy. Our children feel loved. Our children feel secure they don’t feel divided.”
