  • Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith apparently kept their relationship issues from their kids when they were struggling a few years ago.

  • Willow and Jaden are reportedly feeling just fine about it, despite the August Alsina drama.

Life has truly not been the same since Jada Pinkett Smith admitted to having an “entanglement” with August Alsina on Red Table Talk. Will Smith took the entire thing like a champ, but it has us all thinking one thing: How do their kids, Willow and Jaden, feel about this? Last we checked, they were feeling “good, happy and strong” after the drama. And now we know why—because Will and Jada didn’t allow them to see the relationship issues to begin with.

According to People, Will and Jada made sure to keep their problems with each other out of their kids’ life. “The kids have always been a uniting factor for them. And it was never chaotic in the house,” their source shared. “They shielded a lot of what they were going through from their kids. In bad times, Jada would just be gone a lot.”

This source (like many others over the past few days) felt the need to reiterate that Will and Jada’s relationship is similar to any regular couple’s—the only difference is they’re famous and going through stuff like this in the public eye.

“From the beginning, their issues haven’t been any different than most other couples,” the insider added. “They’re two different people trying to make it, and on top of it there’s this huge spotlight on them. Up until now, they’ve done a great job of being able to keep their issues private. But their problems aren’t unique. They got together pretty young and they’ve grown and changed and adapted. They learn more about each other every day.”

Awesome, let’s hope they can keep this energy up for the foreseeable future, yeah? Would hate to learn about open relationship rumor number 24,873.
