When you think of the word ‘entanglement’, what is the first thing that comes to mind? You know when your earphones are jumbled up together or a bunch of wires get tangled together? That’s exactly what pops into my head when I think of the word. Apparently, the word entanglement is actually defined as – a situation or relationship that you are involved in and that is difficult to escape from. Where has this word been! It’s a great word to describe the complicated relationships in this savage generation of ours.
On this episode of The Safe Space, people shared their opinions on the whole Will and Jada entanglement palava. Here’s what they had to say.
“The Poor Boy” – Steve, Abuja
The status of their marriage was open from day one. Did you know that Jada dated 2pac while she was with Will? Their marriage has always been open. It was August who made it really known to the world because the poor boy was still “entangled” with a woman who had clearly moved on.
“Desperately Sad” – Earl, Abuja
When a woman cheats, it’s called entanglement. However, when it’s a man, the whole internet will drag his name to the gutter. I just feel bad for Will Smith. In that video, he mirrored exactly how he looked in pursuit of happiness- desperately sad.
“Sadness and Confusion” – Zoba, Umuahia
I’ve followed Will Smith’s journey for a while now. One consistent thing with him is that he keeps talking about finding fulfilment and happiness! He’s an adventurous man, trying to make the best out of life. Sha, after all that cover up for media, in his home – at his very core, lies sadness and confusion. That’s not life! That’s not living fully.
“Messed Up” – Chukwudi, Lagos
I think the idea of an open marriage is messed up. If you’re going to sleep around, why get married? Also, Jada is manipulative. This August guy fell in love with her at his low point and she calls it an ‘entanglement’. I just feel sorry for Will because she manipulated both men in the end.
“Honesty” – Martins, Lagos
I think too many people think they are Will and Jada. Let them handle their marriage the way they want to. If anything, I respect their honesty and the open communication between them.
