Nothing solves a problem like… sex? Will Smith revealed he tried to cure his heartache after being cheated on by turning to sexual intercourse with woman — and lots of them.
“I desperately needed relief, but as there is no pill for heartbreak, I resorted to the homeopathic remedies of shopping and rampant sexual intercourse,” Smith candidly wrote in his new book. “Up until this point in my life, I had only had sex with one woman other than Melanie, but over the next few months, I went full ghetto hyena.”
All the sexual intercourse had an adverse reaction to his physical being, and his body began to revolt the idea of stimulation. “I had sex with so many women, and it was so constitutionally disagreeable to the core of my being, that I developed a psychosomatic reaction to having an orgasm,” the King Richard star explained. “It would literally make me gag and sometimes even vomit.”
Although stimulation was taking a toll on his body, the Aladdin actor continued his sexcapades in hopes of getting over his cheating ex. “In every case, though, I hoped to God this beautiful stranger would be ‘the one’ who would love me, who would make this pain go away,” he recalled. “But invariably, there I was, retching and wretched. And the look in the eyes of the women even further deepened my agony.”
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air alum went on to wed Sheree Zampino in 1992, but the duo called it quits three years later. The exes share 29-year-old son Trey.
