    true and i'll give that a week..

    the movie deals with a specific chapter of his life not his whole life. it starts with the second family for a reason, that's when he made his manifesto and story centres around that effort.

    he could very well be a piece of shyt but it still wouldn't negate what he achieved with Venus and Serena. In real life people are complex not purely hero's or villains, most of us probably go half our lives before we really learn to understand who we have as family and then lose that innocent view of people as just good or bad.

    this is going to sound cold…but what does that have to do with him…The mother likely had another man or medical coverage.

    that’s like me paying for one of my BMs medical coverage and they have a whole husband.

    Well there is a scene in the movie when Richard wife mentions (in the movie)he quit and walked away from his 1st family and kids. So they didnt try to gloss over it.

    The press contacted her, not the other way around. Is she supposed to lie ?

    It's got to burn when the whole world is praising the man who abandoned you via a movie about him being a great father.

    Anyone would be mad. I dont blame her for setting the record straight

    It's not like they omitted him leaving his family in the movie. The movie did paint his flaws :yeshrug:

    Based on his Wikipedia page, he has 8 other children.

    This is not the first time that the press is covering Mr. Williams first family. He has faded into the background in the past decade, so there was no interest in the story.

    Will Smith has been a superstar for decades now, and he's pretty much Teflon in terms of bad press. Even Jada's shenanigans haven't hurt him as much as made people laugh.

    I don't know if other members of the press are willing to pile on Will over this.

    Yeah, they didn't focus on it too heavily...but they hinted slightly at him being not the most upstanding dude.

    Would've changed the whole tone of the movie if they showed he put all that energy into only "some" of his kids.
