Controversies & Scandals
  • Sheree Zampino, who was married to Pastor Terrell Fletcher in 2012, was criticized for appearing in the reality television show ‘Hollywood Exes’ as some thought that the wife of a full-time minister should not engage in such activities.
  • In January 2016, the now-deceased American actress, Alexis Arquette claimed on social media that Will Smith’s first marriage to Zampino ended after she caught him on bed with Hollywood manager Benny Medina, sparking rumors that the actor is secretly gay. A couple days later, Zampino posted a video on her Facebook page, criticizing Arquette for spreading malicious rumors about people she doesn’t even know, and also came to her ex-husband’s defense saying that her marriage to him did not end for his infidelity, but because she was unhappy. Arquette had also claimed that Zampino was paid by Smith to keep his secret, which she refuted strongly, saying that she has never been paid for hiding anything. She then went on to state that Smith was straight in 1995, and he is so now. She then shamed her for causing emotional damage to Smith’s son with her, Trey, as well as his two children with his current wife Jada.
