We Bet You Didn’t Know These Things About Sheree Zampino

Absolutely good-natured and truly beautiful, Sheree Zampino is an American actress and fashion entrepreneur, who is more known around the USA and the rest of the world for her failed marriage to a huge Hollywood sensation, Will Smith. The entrepreneur is widely admired for the way she relates to her ex even though they are no more together.

Now, even though Zampino is known for being an ex-wife of a Hollywood superstar, this status does not completely define who and what she has become in life as she has gone on to make a life for herself outside her celebrity marriage. Below are some interesting facts you probably didn’t know about Will Smith’s ex-wife.

Sheree Zampino’s Fact Card

What Her Early Years Looked Like

Sheree Zampino, whose full birth name is Sheree Elizabeth Zampino, was born on the 16th day of November 1967. She is a native of Schenectady, a county in New York, the United States and she also holds an American nationality. Growing up, Zampino was raised by her father, Les Zampino and a mother, whose name remains quite vague.

According to our sources, her father worked in a theater company while her mom worked in a finance company. When Zampino was a kid, her parents divorced, and as a result of that, she moved in with her dad. She credits her father for being the pillar she leaned on to rise in life and become somebody.

She Has Great Passion For Fashion 

Since the time she was just a little girl, Sheree Zampino had begun nursing a passion for fashion. As she grew older, her desire to go into the fashion world became so strong that after graduating from high school, she attended the Fashion Institute of Technology, where she learned more about fashion and also studied business to help her monetize her passion.

The Story of How She Met Will Smith Is Gripping

Sheree Zampino’s rise to fame cannot be unconnected to her relationship with Will Smith, one of America’s highly successful actors. It is noteworthy that she burst into the limelight and become one of the highly talked about people in America after beginning a relationship with the film star.

Sheree Zampino and Will Smith met on the set of A Different World, a comedy series in the ’90s. She had come to the set with a friend when she met the actor and sparked a romance. The interesting thing is that Will Smith had come to the set of the series to meet another actress, Jada Pinkett (who now happens to be his wife), but instead of connecting with Pinkett, he instead got charmed by Zampino and collected her number.

Smith eventually called Zampino and they started dating. At the time, Will Smith was already popular as an actor because he had started starring on the popular Fresh Prince of Bel Air series. His fame rubbed off on Zampino and she also became quite popular. Finally, they got married in 1992 in a ceremony attended by family and close friends.

A few months after their wedding, Sheree Zampino and Will Smith welcomed a son, who they named Willard Smith III (aka Trey Smith). He was born in Los Angeles, on the 11th of November 1992. Trey Smith is now an actor and is doing very well for himself just like his dad. He has had roles in movies such as All of Us, Will Smith: Just The Two of Us, and The Speech, among others.

What Led to Sheree Zampino and Will Smith’s Divorce?

In 1995, roughly three years after their wedding, the couple filed for divorce. Many theories have been provided as to why the couple divorced but Sheree has since explained that they were young and did not know how to go about living the married life.

However, despite Sheree’s divorce from Will Smith, both have remained friends and supported each other since then. Zampino jumped to Smith’s defense in 2016 when actress Alexis Arquette posted a malicious message on Facebook claiming that Will Smith was gay.

Her Second Marriage Also Ended in Divorce

After splitting from Will Smith, Zampino remained single for some time before she started dating again. This time, she found love in Terrell Fletcher, a former American footballer turned pastor. After dating for a while, the couple got hitched in a private wedding held in 2007.

Unfortunately, this second marriage also did not last long as the couple separated in July 2014. Zampino’s marriage to Terrell Fletcher produced a daughter named Jodie Fletcher. However, unlike she does with Terry, Zampino is secretive about Jodie and hardly posts about her on social media.

SHe Has Been Enjoying a Successful Career

Since her marriage to Will Smith thrust her into the limelight, Zampino has managed to stay around it, picking up a few gigs in the process. She got her start in show business in 2012 when she was picked as one of the ladies to star on VH1’s reality series, Hollywood Exes. The show chronicles the lives of a group of women separated from their famous husbands as they attempt to start over, find someone new, and grow on their businesses. The show lasted for about 3 seasons, with the final episode airing on 2 July 2014.

Zampino also featured in 2013 Do Something Awards hosted by One Tree Hill star Sophia Bush. In 2015, she joined the cast of Minay Matthews’ documentary/talk show Minay TV, interviewing actors and other celebrities at movie premieres and other red carpet events.

She has since launched her fashion website, which she described as a “boutique that has you covered from head to toe.” Sheree also hosts her show Eat Pray Live on an online broadcast network, Black Hollywood Live, which prides itself as the world’s first online broadcast network dedicated to African American entertainment.
