Petition to stop interviewing Will and Jada Smith has hit 15,000 signatures
Will! Please stop... and tell Jada too
A petition launched in the hope of stopping Will and Jada Pinkett Smith from talking about their relationship has surpassed 15,000 signatures in a matter of days.
The couple has been airing their dirty laundry with reckless abandon for some weeks now, so much so that Buzzfeed headlined a story this week: We Know Too Much About Will Smith Now.
If you're not up to speed, the couple has spoken a lot lately... about themselves, their relationships, their relationships with others. They've talked about their open marriage. That at one point, Will wanted a "harem of girlfriends". That he fell in love with a co-star. That he dealt with being cheated on by having so much sex he made himself gag, and vomit. Jada, on the other hand, said she wasn't 100% satisfied with their sex life. Then, she said she was. The couple's daughter, Willow, has even got in on the action, discussing threesomes, polyamorous relationships, and even steaming her vagina. You get the picture. It's too much.
Dexter Morales, launched the petition along with the plea, ‘Stop interviewing Will and Jada smith!’, and on Friday morning it had reached 15,118 signatures.

It has prompted a few comments in support.
"Everything I learn about this couple is against my will. Free us," one person wrote.
Another added: "Not everything has to be public knowledge."
"I’m sick and tired of hearing the BS that goes on in their personal lives. It’s exhausting. I’ve muted their names everywhere, AND STILL SEE THIS!! I’m sick of their weirdness. Make it STOP!!!’ said another.
Will has been chatting a lot lately because he has a docuseries coming out, The Best Shape Of My Life, and a memoir, Will, and a new movie out, King Richard, where he plays the legendary Richard Williams, father of Venus and Serena Williams.
Buzzfeed suggested also that his oversharing is an attempt to reinvent himself as an actor for the modern era. Warts and all.
Will did a rather in-depth interview with Oprah earlier this month.
The Men In Black star talked about his split from Jada, who went on to have a relationship with singer August Alsina and how he also engaged in sexual relationships outside of their marriage.
Several Red Table Talks have also centred around their relationship, sex life and Jada's close friendship with Tupac.
