Will Smith made 'crazy' comments about Willow's period after Jada Pinkett Smith admits he's 'gone too far'
Jada Pinkett Smith has revealed that Will Smith has "gone too far" on occasion when discussing matters of menstruation and PMS with their 19-year-old daughter, Willow.
The actress was interviewing rapper T.I on her Facebook Watch show, Red Table Talk, on Monday, when the subject of parenting daughters was brought up. This comes after the rapper was widely condemned for claiming that he takes his 19-year-old daughter, Deyjah, to the gynaecologist every year to ensure her hymen is still intact, and that she's still a virgin.
The interview in question occurred on the podcast, Ladies Like Us, with Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham. When asked by the hosts if he's had the "sex talk" with his daughters, T.I said "Not only have we had the conversation - we have yearly trips to the gynaecologist to check her hymen. Yes I go with her."
In the Red Table Talk, Jada said she could emphasise with why the 39-year-old would make such comments, because her own husband, Will Smith, has made insensitive remarks to their daughter.
Watch the interview below:
"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," Jada said to T.I.
"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 [sic]," she continued.
Jada then added that Willow has "gone at" her father for his "insensitive" comments regarding her periods: "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 [sic]."
