Jada Pinkett Smith took to Instagram to share a message about the reality of marriage and forgiveness.

“I’ve been watching a lot marriages dissolve around me,” the actress wrote alongside a family photo with husband Will Smith, her stepson Trey, 25, and 17-year-old daughter Willow. “It’s been really painful. Marriages change.”

She continued: “Sometimes they need to be reimagined and transformed. Sometimes they are simply over … but either way, I pray that folks going thru this painful transition find the patience and the love within to not throw the ‘babies’ out with the bath water. #family”

20-year-old Jaden Smith was missing from the photo and he joked in his mother’s comments: “Where the hell am I?”

Jada replied, “In my heart. You would be right here if u weren’t working. We miss u.”

As noted by US Weekly, the next morning, Jada added a “pillowtalk” video of herself reflecting on self-forgiveness.

“Forgiveness … My power to forgive others came from forgiving myself by looking into the shadows of my own heart,” she captioned the clip. “But… there are acts committed against us that are so horrific our only choice is to give it to the Mother/Father to fill us with a healing needed to find the ‘God Love’ within that gives us the ‘Self Love’ we need”.

The Red Table Talk host then explained that “to forgive” is a “delicate process” and revealed she “also had to realize that just because my heart may embrace and forgive … doesn’t mean that person should be standing beside me.”

The heartfelt messages come on the heels of Will and Jada recently celebrating the fact that they’ve been together for more than half their lives.

Judge Orders The Game To Turn Over Financial Records To Pay Off $7m Judgment

Judge Orders The Game To Turn Over Financial Records To Pay Off $7m Judgment

A judge has ordered The Game to turn over his banking records to a woman who is attempting to collect on judgment worth millions that she won in a sexual harassment lawsuit.

The rapper, whose real name is Jayceon Terrell Taylor, has until the end of the month to comply and make known to the court all his bank accounts, all of his real estate holdings, and other assets.

The judge also ordered him to provide receipts for all money earned since 2014 and all details of any businesses he owns.

According to The Blast, Priscilla Rainey won a $7 million judgment when The Game failed to show up to court for hearings in 2015. In her lawsuit, she claimed he sexually harassed her during the taping of his reality TV show “She Got Game,” by forcibly reaching inside her dress to rub her butt and genitals in full view of others on set.

Taylor filed a motion for a new trial, claiming the judgment was too high and there wasn’t enough evidence to support her allegations. But the judge disagreed, noting the testimony of two witnesses to the sexual misconduct.

“Whether the jury’s verdict was against the weight of the evidence is not a close question,” Judge Gary Feinerman wrote on August 31.

“Rainey’s testimony alone would have formed a sufficient basis for the verdict. Smith’s testimony regarding Rainey’s demeanor immediately following the incident, coupled with the video showing Taylor’s failure to deny her allegations when she confronted him on the bus, served as unnecessary icing on the cake.”

He continued: “The court has already reviewed Taylor’s vile responses to Rainey’s initial effort on the tour bus to discuss the battery (“What you can do is be a woman and shut up”; “Get off this bus before you get your ass strangled”; “I’ll f**king choke your a** up”), and to her filing this lawsuit (“other ‘Tranny Panty’ activity in her past that makes this false claim irrelevant”), which confirm that a punitive damages award is eminently reasonable.”

A jury awarded Rainey $7 million in damages, but she has not received a dime from The Game.

The judge added: “The unauthorized touching of a woman’s vagina and other intimate areas is a reprehensible act, particularly when done in front of a crowd of onlookers.”

Nike Stock Closes At An All-Time High In Aftermath Of Colin Kaepernick Ad Campaign

Nike Stock Closes At An All-Time High In Aftermath Of Colin Kaepernick Ad Campaign

When Nike selected Colin Kaepernick to be the face of its “Just Do It” 30th-anniversary ad campaign, one analyst noted that the move proved the company knows its customer, and they would boost sales.

Nearly two weeks after the ad provoked calls for boycotts, shares hit an all-time high, closing at $83.47 Thursday — an all-time high for the company.

According to a report from Bloomberg, Nike had previously faced a dip in its stock price immediately after its Kaepernick announcement, dropping nearly 3 percent in the next day of trading at the New York Stock Exchange. That fall has since been made up and more, per Yahoo.

Nike’s Colin Kaepernick ‘Just do it’ campaign is a two-minute video featuring the former 49er narrating stories of athletes who have beaten the odds, ending with the words: “It’s only crazy until you do it,” then changing to “Just do it.”

Nike and Kaepernick riled up conservatives and the mentally malnourished who were outraged by the ad and planned boycotts, some burned their Nike gear and one Louisiana mayor tried to ban the brand from being sold at public facilities before pulling back. Donald Trump tweeted that Nike was getting “absolutely killed with anger and boycotts.”

As it turns out, a spike in sales and brand awareness was worth the backlash, and so far it seems Nike is being proven right by betting on Kaepernick.
