Melanie was then invited to live with Smith and her family and Will put her squarely at the center of his universe. “ The look in Melanie’s eyes has become a substitute for Gigi [her grandmother’s] approval. I’ve always needed a woman to be successful, ”said Smith. However, things changed during his absence. Mélanie cheated on Will while he was busy with his shows. When the romance abruptly ended, Smith turned to sex, stringing together conquests as most heartbroken people do.

The descent into Hell
The pleasure only lasted a short time as Smith said he began to react physically after sex.
“ I have had sex with so many women, and it was so unpleasant that I developed a psychosomatic reaction to orgasm, ” he added. “ I was literally choking to the point of even throwing up sometimes… In any case, however, I hoped that God would make this beautiful stranger the one who would love me, who would make this pain go away; but on the contrary, I was there, miserable and with retching. And the look in the eyes of women deepened my agony, ”he added.
Although he and Melanie tried to reconcile later, it was obvious that they weren’t meant to be together.
