According to TMZ, police informed the outlet that men wearing hoodies attempted to break in before 8pm thinking the coast was clear, yet fled the scene shortly after. The incident is now under investigation with law officials, who have not released any further details.
Last year, Jada began opening up about her split from Will Smith as she released her memoir, Worthy. She revealed to the world that while they were still technically married, they spent some time apart and now live apart. The pair were even separated when Will jumped up to defend his wife from Chris Rock as the Oscars with a slap. It was in that moment that Jada revisited their marriage and felt more inspired to give it another go, after seeing his strong desire to defend her.
The couple spoke in statements last year about wanting to ‘work things out’, although Will was left “blindsided” by Jada’s confessions regarding their private life in her book as well as various podcast and television appearances. Last year in November, an insider revealed to Heat Magazine that Jada did not have Will’s approval to discuss their private life like she did. They then said that he has been left feeling “more emasculated than ever”.
During an appearance on Jay Shetty’s On Purpose podcast, Jada was shown a letter which was written by Will after he finished reading her book. He said: “It is amazing to realise that despite having lived most of my life by your side, I still found myself shocked and stunned and caught off guard, laughing, then inspired, then heartbroken. I was all over the place.”
Will explained: “It’s one thing to hear anecdotes at a family barbecue, but it was truly overwhelming to take in your story, potently condensed in this way.” He then gushed over his wife and said Jada is “a rare blend of power and delicate sensitivity”.
The actor added: “I know it wasn’t easy to excavate the depths in that way. I applaud and honour you. If I had read this book 30 years ago, I definitely would have hugged you more. I’ll start now. Welcome to the Authors Club. I love you endlessly. Now go get some Merlot and take a rest.”
