Want to know more? If so, then read on as we’ll bring to you everything there is to know about Sheree Zampino.
Sheree Zampino was born on Nov. 16, 1967 in Schenectadu, New York, with the full name Sheree Elizabeth Zampino. Her father’s name was Les Zampino who worked as an employee in a theater company. Meanwhile, her mother was a finance officer.
Her parents divorced while she was still a young kid. This resulted to Sherry moving in with her father. Since then, Sherry felt that she was into fashion even at her very young age. She brought her interest in fashion until she grew older.
Perhaps, she’s just the kind of girl who’s into design, art, and is more on the creative side. As soon as she graduated from high school, Zampino chose to go to fashion school. Good thing, she managed to pass the entrance exam of the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, New York.
It was there where she learned more about fashion, and in the process, harnessed her skill and passion even more. But she didn’t just focused solely on it as she knew she needed additional skills to monetize her passion. And so, she also studied business and went into business management courses whilst in fashion school.
Her education paved the way for the realization of her dreams. All her hard work in school bore fruit as she managed to become a successful speaker, TV personality, and cook later on. Zampino is the first wife of big-time Hollywood star Will Smith.
Her involvement in Minay TV, 2013 Do Something, and Hollywood Exes brought her to even more fame. Zampino’s Hollywood career started in 2001 when she starred her first role in the movie called “Our Journey.”
She received positive critical acclaim from her peers for her appearance on Hollywood Exes, a reality TV series of VH1 in 2012. Meanwhile, she also starred as herself for two episodes in a TV series called Minay TV in 2015.
Apart from that, Zampino also appeared in TV shows such as Oh Drama, The Oprah Winfrey Show, and the 2013 Do Something Award. She’s currently doing small TV show and movie roles.
Marriage to Will Smith
Sheree Zampino is one of the women who grew in popularity due to their involvement, or in this case, marriage to a famous Hollywood star. Hers was being the Fresh Prince of Bel Air star, Will Smith.
Though they’re not separated, their marriage still bore fruit especially in her career. This enabled her to gain a solid footing in the TV and movie industry. However, her passion, skills, and talent shouldn’t be disregarded. These traits also helped her a lot in achieving success.
Zampino and Will Smith were associated with each other for years. There were even rumors that they were dating each other. However, things didn’t go official until 1992 when they finally got married.
According to reports, the couple met when Smith was still shooting one of the episodes for “Fresh Prince of Bel Air.” Their marriage was looking bright at first as they celebrated their individual achievements together.
Unfortunately, the couple sought legal separation as they decided to finally divorce in 1995. They were just three years into their marriage.
However, it’s worth noting that the two still remained friends even if they’re separated. They were even close companions and even helped each other move forward with their respective careers.
One situation which proves just this was when Zampino defended Smith in 2016 when artist Alexis Arquette shared to the public a story that Will Smith was gay.
Smith’s former wife, Sheree Zampino, didn’t let this pass as she swiftly came back to her ex-husband’s defense. She responded with a Facebook video that clarified the real reason why she and Smith separated.
Specifically speaking, Zampino clearly stated that the reason was not because Smith was gay. According to Zampino, their separation was not caused by another individual. She specifically stated that Smitha didn’t have a significant other and that he was straight before and still a straight guy now.
Furthermore, Zampino continued saying that their marriage failed because they were still so young then. They were still in their early 20’s and they didn’t have any time to go on with their respective duties and responsibilities as how a husband and wife should be.
Zampino said that marriage wasn’t simple and that it was full of challenges they didn’t expect at that age. She continued saying that Will was having a bigger name in the movie industry, while she was going the exactly opposite way.
They were worlds apart, so to speak. They also didn’t have the needed apparatuses to make their marriage work, she added. She concluded her statement by saying that the factors that ended their marriage were very basic.

Married Life with Terrell Fletcher
Will Smith married Jada Pinkett Smith in 1997, just two years after his divorce with Zampino. Meanwhile, Zampino stayed unmarried for more than ten years. She married Terrel Fletcher, a famous NFL player who retired recently during that time, and has since led a life with God as a pastor.
In fact, Fletcher appeared with Zampino in “Hollywood Exes.” The couple was happily married, at least initially. However, it faded a few years on until they finally separated in July 2014, with hopeless contrasts being the reason.
According to reports, Zampino had asked for financial provision from Fletcher. It wasn’t clear, though, how much she got from the former San Diego Chargers running back.

Children of Sheree Zampino
Zampino wasn’t very lucky when it comes to love. Well, the romantic part of it, we should say. Why? It’s because her two failed marriages gave her two successful kids. Zampino became pregnant a few months after marrying Smith.
It was a baby boy they named Willard Smith III, whom they called Trey Smith for short. He was born on Nov. 11, 1992.
In an interview, Zampino was asked why Trey wasn’t as popular as his other half siblings, such as Jaden Smith. Zampino hastily answered by saying that Trey was raised differently and in a different home which isn’t influenced that much by Hollywood and all the glitz and glamor that goes with it.
Trey just didn’t like the spotlight that much, her mother said. Zampino continued by saying that Trey wasn’t grounded, but he simply just had a different kind of childhoos. He wasn’t also clearly introduced to the Hollywood way of life which is why he’s a bit aloof to the media.
Zampino added that Trey wanted to live a genuine life, a life which was different from the acting perspectives of the movie and film industry.
Meanwhile, her marriage with Terrel Fletcher also gave birth to another child. This time, a beautiful girl named Jodie Fletcher. However, not much is known about her, not even her real birthday.

She even posts random photos of two other kids whom she says are her nephew and niece.
