On the most recent episode of her show, Red Table Talk, Jada Pinkett Smith revealed she had a sex addition when she was younger. The Girls Trip star also revealed she struggled with other addictions as well. Read on for more.
Jada was joined by her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Jones, for the episode, which centered around addiction. Jada said, "My sort of addictions jump. They jump around. When I was younger, I definitely think I had a sex addiction of some kind, yes, that everything could be fixed by sex. You know what I’m saying?"
The actress also revealed that she struggled with alcohol addiction as well. "I remember reaching a rock bottom that time I was in the house by myself and I had those two bottles of wine and was going for the third bottle,” she recalled. "And I was like, ‘Now hold up. You’re in the this house by yourself going onto your third bottle of wine? You might have a problem.'"
Jada's mom struggled with heroin addiction when she was younger and both women have since overcome their addictions, with Jada admitting she went "cold turkey."
"That’s the thing about me: I can go cold turkey," she said. "I am a binger, and I always have to watch myself and I can just get obsessed with things. It’s not what you’re doing but how you’re with it. Why you’re doing it. It’s the behavior that’s attached to it because if you want to have a lot of sex, that’s great, but why are you having all that sex? That’s what you’ve got to look at."
Jada has been married to Will Smith for 20 years. The pair share two children, Jaden, 19 and Willow, 17.
