Jada Pinkett Smith reveals dog Fang she shares with Will Smith has died at age 15 as she pays tribute: ‘He brought so much love into our family’

Jada Pinkett Smith shared her family’s heartbreak over the loss of their beloved dog on Wednesday.

The 52-year-old Set It Off alum – who has been estranged from husband Will Smith since 2016 – took to her Instagram to reveal the sad news of four-legged friend Fang passing away at the age of 15.

‘Last night we lost one of our furry sons Fang,’ she wrote alongside snaps of herself on a hike with the husky. 

‘He brought so much love into our family, our animal pack and community. Thank you Fang for 15 years of pure joy. We are going to miss you soooooo much.’

Fang’s death comes a few months after Jada revealed her family had welcomed a rescue puppy named Lucco.

The emotional tribute also follows Jada and Will reuniting for a cozy dinner date at the celebrity hot spot Nobu Malibu shortly after New Year’s. 

Although Will and Jada have shared few details about the current status of their marriage, she told DailyMail.com earlier this month that her husband’s shocking Oscars slap had saved their marriage.

‘After all those years trying to figure out if I would leave Will’s side, it took that slap for me to see I will never leave him,’ she said. ‘Who knows where our relationship would be if that hadn’t happened?’ 

Jada also recently shared that she hasn’t spoken with Chris Rock since the infamous Oscars slap, when Will slapped Chris after the comedian made a joke about Jada’s bald head. 

‘[Do I have] any desire to talk to Chris? Here’s my desire: I just hope that all the misunderstanding around this can be cleared up and that there can be peace,’ she told People.

Jada admitted she and Will were in fact living separately when her husband strode onto the Oscar stage in a burst of fury over a joke that had been made about his wife’s bald hairstyle by Rock. 

She noted that no permanent decisions have been made about the future of her marriage, explaining that she and Will are ‘still figuring it out’. 

‘We’ve been doing some really heavy-duty work together,’ she said. ‘We just got deep love for each other and we are going to figure out what that looks like.’

Jada went on to praise her children – Jaden, 25, Willow, 22, and Trey, 30, who is Will’s son from a previous relationship – for standing by her during this rocky time in her relationship.

Jada also revealed Rock had asked her out on a date sometime before her husband smacked him on stage at the 2022 Academy Awards. 

‘I think every summer all the reports would come out that me and Will were getting a divorce,’ Jada said to People. ‘And this particular summer, Chris, he thought that we were getting a divorce. 

‘So he called me and basically he was like, ‘I’d love to take you out,” she recalled. ‘And I was like, ‘What do you mean?’ He was like, ‘Well, aren’t you and Will getting a divorce?’ I was like, ‘No, Chris, those are just rumors.’
