“I know Will and I are talking about writing a book together called Don’t Try This at Home,” the outlet quoted Pinkett Smith as saying.

Will Smith's own memoir, Will, arrived in November 2021 and was co-written with Mark Manson.

Jada and Will’s 26-year marriage has a complex history and has been the subject of constant internet discussion, with the couple addressing various issues publicly, such as cheating allegations and perceived “toxic” behavior. 

Pinkett Smith recently disclosed during her press tour for her new memoir that they have been separated since 2016, citing exhaustion from trying to maintain their public image. Despite the separation, they are not seeking a divorce. The revelation created a social media frenzy, with many people recalling Jada’s past “entanglement” with August Alsina and Will’s infamous Oscar slap in her defense over comments by Chris Rock.

Will also recently posted an Instagram video to troll fans with an “official statement” in response to the discourse.
