To the outside world she had it all, but inside Willow Smith was losing her mind.
When Will and Jada’s only daughter dropped “Whip My Hair” in 2010 it seemed as though the precocious pre-teen had made the beginning of a long-lasting mark on the music industry. But soon after all the promo and touring, little Smith wasn’t interested in finishing her album — unfortunately, she was interested in much of anything. “And after all of that kinda settled down and it was like a kind of lull, I was just listening to a lot of dark music, and it was just so crazy and I was just like plunged into this black hole, and I was, like, cutting myself.”
Willow made that shocking revelation while sitting with her mom Jada and grandmother Adrienne for another installment of “Red Table Talk” on Facebook Watch. The matriarchs were astonished by Smith’s confession and searched for answers. “I never talk about it because it was such a short, weird point in my life, but you have to pull yourself … out of it,” Willow stated. “I honestly felt like I was experiencing so much emotional pain, but my physical circumstances weren’t reflecting that.”
Thankfully Willow said one day she just realized cutting herself was “psychotic” and she immediately stopped.
