Will Smith and Sheree Zampino’s relationship dates back to the 1990s when the two were married from 1992 to 1995.
Parents to son Trey Smith, the two have maintained a friendly relationship while co-parenting despite both having gone on to marry other people – Smith tied the knot with Jada Pinkett Smith in 1997, while Zampino married former NFL player Terrell Fletcher in 2007 (they’ve since divorced).
Having appeared in season 12 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this year, the 54-year-old has made a name for herself over the years. Here’s everything you need to know about Sheree Zampino.
Marriage and divorce from Smith
Zampino and Smith were married in May 1992 and split in 1995, but before then, she gave birth to son Trey Smith in November 1992.
“Divorce was the worst thing in my adult life, divorce was the ultimate failure for me,” Smith said on Red Table Talk.
“I’ve been hurt a lot in my adult life, but I don’t think anything touches the failure of getting divorced from my 2-year-old son’s mother.”
Zampino would marry again, tying the knot with former San Diego Chargers running back and City of Hope International Church pastor Terrell Fletcher. However, she filed for divorce in 2014 citing irreconcilable differences.
Interest in fashion
Zampino studied fashion design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and fashion merchandising at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles.
However, while married to Fletcher she served as the director of the women’s ministry at City of Hope International Church for six years.
She also launched Sheree Elizabeth Boutique in 2009, with the brand hosting pop up “Sip and Shop’ events around the USA, and owns Whoop Ash, a line of moisturizing body butter she founded in 2006.
Zampino made an appearance in all three seasons of VH1’s reality series Hollywood Exes, which aired from 2012 to 2014.
She’s since returned to television, joining the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for season 12, which premiered in 2022.
Zampino and Smith are still close
The two remain close despite no longer being together, and even posed together following the Oscars in March 2022.
As for her relationship with Smith’s now wife Jada Pinkett Smith, it hasn’t always been smooth sailing between the two.
“We have developed a really nice sisterhood, but it hasn’t been easy along the way,” Pinkett Smith said. “Sometimes we did have to fake it to make it.”
