Old video footage has surfaced on the Internet that reveals tension between Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith behind closed doors.

The cell phone video was filmed after Jada sat down with psychotherapist and relationship expert Esther Perel.

Jada was convinced that Perel helped them resolve their relationship issues and the pain they caused each other.

"Would you say [Perel] has been instrumental in you and I defining our relationship?" Jada asks her husband.

But Will is only focused on one thing: his social media presence.

"I would say don't just start filming me without asking me," he responds.

"Oh my goodness," Jada says, "Esther, come help us again, please. I'm still dealing with foolishness."

She continues, "Would you say that she helped us heal the hurts that we caused between one another?"

But Will is not interested in Jada's psychobabble. Like most narcissists, he is only focused on his image and controlling how and when he is viewed by the public.

"My social media presence is my bread and butter," says Will, who has over 63 million followers on Instagram alone.

"So, you can't just use me for social media and not... You know, don't just start rolling. I'm standing in my house."

Jada faces the camera and urges her followers to watch an upcoming episode of Red Table Talk, featuring Perel as her special guest.

"Please watch Esther at the Red Table, because she's helped us a lot. Can't you tell?"

In the episode, Jada revealed to Perel that Will "felt abandoned" after she wanted more independence in their marriage, i.e., she wanted an open marriage.

Will was apparently fine with an open marriage - until details of her tryst with retired singer August Alsina leaked to the public.

Alsina is now taking bids on a tell-all book about their sexual escapades. Several publishing houses are said to be interested in the book.

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez looked totally unbothered while arriving at Super Bowl LV in Tampa, Florida on Sunday.

The couple attended the big game days after the news broke that Alex had a brief, emotional Zoom fling with Southern Charm star Madison LeCroy, 31.

J-Lo, 51, covers the March 2021 issue of Allure magazine. The mom-of-4 revealed how she and the former Yankees star "prioritized" their relationship last year.

"I miss being creative and running on 150," she says of the quarantine due to the COVID-19 outbreak. "But Alex, of all people, was like, 'I love it. I love being at home. I love doing my Zooms. I love knowing the kids are there, and you’re there all the time.'"

J-Lo confessed that they sought couples therapy last year amid the coronavirus lockdown.

"It has been actually really good," Lopez continues. "We got to work on ourselves. We did therapy. I think it was really helpful for us in our relationship."

J-Lo likely wasn't aware that Alex was spending his quarantine Zooming with another woman.

A-Rod didn't get to second base with Madison (pun intended), but his fiancée should be concerned that he at least tried to slide into second base with Madison.

Maybe that's why Lopez delayed the wedding -- because she knew Alex, 45, wasn't ready to commit.

"We had been planning for months and months and months, and [the wedding] was overseas," she says. "Maybe that wasn't the right time. You start thinking of all of these things -- how everything has its kind of perfect, divine moment."

Cardi B and Offset turned to the church to help save their failing marriage after she caught him cheating on her.

The hip-hop power couple tied the knot in September, 2017. They welcomed their first child, daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus in July, 2018. But by December 2018, the "Bodak Yellow" rapper announced she and Offset had parted ways.

Cardi B and Offset, both 27, reconciled months later, thanks to priests who made house calls.

In a cover story interview for the January 2020 issue of U.S. Vogue magazine, Cardi confessed she tuned to priests to help restore her faith in men.

"Everybody on social media acts like relationships is perfect," she said in her familiar broken English. "Everybody has issues. I believe in forgiveness. I prayed on it. Me and my husband, we prayed on it. We had priests come to us. And we just came to an understanding like, bro, it's really us against the world," she said.

On the cover, Cardi cradles her 16-month-old daughter in her lap. She wears a red polka dot dress. Her legs spread open seductively. She wears her black, straight hair slicked back. Her and Kulture's baby hairs are laid to perfection.

Defending her decision to stand by her husband, Cardi added, "people were so mad at me; a lot of women felt disappointed in me."

She addressed her female fans who may find themselves in a similar situation.

"If you love somebody and you stop being with them, and you're depressed and social media is telling you not to talk to that person because he cheated, you're not really happy on the inside until you have the conversation."

Despite new rumors that Offset cheated on her again, she added: "He has my back for everything, I have his back for everything."

Beyonce and Jay Z

Blogger Seth Adam Smith, a married man, wrote a blog post about overcoming his own selfishness on his way down the aisle with the Love of his life, Kim. Seth describes a conversation he had with his wise dad who told him point blank that marriage is not for men -- though not in those exact words.

His dad's exact words were:

Marriage isn’t for you. You don’t marry to make yourself happy, you marry to make someone else happy. More than that, your marriage isn’t for yourself, you’re marrying for a family. Not just for the in-laws and all of that nonsense, but for your future children. Who do you want to help you raise them? Who do you want to influence them? Marriage isn’t for you. It’s not about you. Marriage is about the person you married.”

Seth's blog post has caught fire all over the Internet, on social media websites and message boards. It's as if Seth's message of self-sacrifice and consideration for others is a new concept in human behavior.

Personally, I think Seth cheated on Kim, and that's what brought about his great metamorphosis. Seth and Kim are high school sweethearts who met when they were 15. It's likely that Kim knows Seth is a dog -- but she married him anyway, because dogs need Love too.

President Barack Obama Michelle Obama hug

Actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith aren't the only famous married couple who take separate vacations. Will recently went on an extended romantic vacation to Brazil with his longtime friend (and rumored lover) Duane Martin.

The White House today confirmed that President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle are taking separate vacations as well. This news comes 3 months after Obama was photographed flirting shamelessly with another woman.

The Obamas vacationing separately should not come as a surprise to anyone. The first lady's body language revealed the truth about their loveless marriage years ago.

Daniel Gibson Shuts Down Rumors

Cheating men usually don't seek professional counseling to save their marriages. Instead, they seek therapy of a different kind -- in the arms of another woman.

Rumors that R&B Diva Keyshia Cole and her husband Daniel "Booby" Gibson were breaking up began swirling online after Keyshia tweeted song lyrics.

But according to Gibson, the rumors are false. At age 26, the Cleveland Cavaliers star shooting guard is a mature family man who knows that marriage is an ongoing work in progress.
