Until that one day, Will admits to having an emotional breakdown in the middle of a restroom at The Palm.
“That next night, me and Sheree went to dinner, and I sat down with Sheree, and it was one of the most bizarre emotions I ever had,” Will says. “We were at The Palm and I remember I had to get up from dinner when I had a realization that I wasn’t with the person I was supposed to be with. I went into the bathroom in The Palm, and I broke down in tears. I was sitting in a stall in the restaurant and I was crying uncontrollably and then laughing like, ‘What the heck is wrong with me?’ And I knew, that was the woman I was supposed to be with.”
Although Will started the conversation following that evening Sheree was the one who filed for divorce. Shortly after that Will and Jada started dating. Not long into the relationship Jada became pregnant with their son, Jaden.
