Jada Pinkett Smith is best known for her recurring role as a supporting character in the sitcom A Different World. Her husband, Will Smith, recently slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars, which attracted a lot of controversy. Jada recently expressed that she doesn’t feel protected in her relationships.
In a recent episode of “Red Table Talk,” the actress discusses how her childhood feelings of being unprotected and unsafe have carried over into adulthood.
The episode focused on Will Smith’s controversial Oscars incident once again. Things have changed when Jada revealed a few discoveries on her talk show platform.
The Smiths were expected to go to their red table and break the beans on what life has been like in their household since the event. but that chat has yet to happen. Jada, on the other hand, made some intriguing remarks about feeling safe.
My thing was, just, not having protection. That’s my biggest wound that comes out in all my relationships. And I’ve looked for [the] craziest kind of protection, and I don’t have a really good sense of what’s safe and what’s not… I’m either extremely protective or extremely defensive.
The show focused largely on mother-daughter ties and personal relationships, and Jada revealed that her greatest hurt was feeling unprotected in a tape that has gone viral, and it’s something that has resurfaced in subsequent relationships. Adrienne Banfield-Norris, Jada’s mother, believes the actress developed that sentiment after her grandma went away. Banfield-Norris has been open about her drug addiction recovery, but during the worst of it, Jada reportedly sought solace from Adrienne’s mother. Check out the clip below.
