Will Smith made ‘crazy’ comments about Willow’s period in the past
Jada Pinkett Smith has revealed her husband Will Smith has made ‘the craziest’ comments about their daughter Willow’s period.
Opening up on the family dynamic in the house when it came to being mum and dad, Jada said her husband has gone too far in the past in referencing his 19-year-old daughter’s foray into womanhood.
The 48-year-old actress was speaking with rapper T.I. on her celebrated Facebook Watch show Red Table Talk on Monday, when the subject of daughters came up.
It comes after the rapper received backlash when he claimed he takes his 19-year-old daughter Deyjah to the gynaecologist every year to make sure her hymen is still intact and that she’s still a virgin.
Drawing on her own experiences in the father/daughter relationship, Jada said she could understand why the rapper would make misinformed comments, because her own husband Will, 51, has said insensitive things about Willow.
Jada said: ‘There’s certain things about raising a man that I can’t know. I would tell [Will], “Love your daughter, let me teach her,” because there’s certain sensitivities that you might not understand and have just because of your relationship in the world is different than a woman’s relationship.
‘I understood that because I’m in this house with Will and he be saying the craziest stuff. He don’t understand the level. And thank God he has me and he’s got Willow … we educate that joker before he leaves this house. You know what I mean? He’s one of those that likes to tell stories and sometimes goes too far.’
Jada added Willow has reacted and ‘gone at’ her father in the past for his ‘insensitive’ comments made about her periods.
She continued: ‘Willow has gone at her dad several times for very insensitive comments, whether it’s around menstruation or, you know, “You must be PMS-ing,” and she’s like, “That right there, we not gon’ do that.” Every day, it’s a work in progress.’
Jada’s insight comes after T.I. told her his comments – which he made earlier this month on the Ladies Like Us podcast – were supposed to be a ‘joke’.
He said: ‘I came to clear up any misconceptions that have been surrounding how we interact and parent, and what is appropriate and inappropriate. I think all of this surrounds a conversation I was having in a very joking manner when asked how I deal with parenting in this day and age.
‘From a place of truth, I began to embellish and exaggerate and I think a lot of people took it extremely literal.’
Part two of T.I.’s Red Table Talk interview is expected to air next Monday.
