Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith’s daughter, Willow, cut herself when she was younger.
Pinkett Smith talked about this as a guest on The MOMS podcast.
After the song, “Whip My Hair,” came out and was well-received, Willow started harming herself.
Pinkett Smith said,
“I wanted to make sure she was okay. We went through what happened and in the moment I realized as a mother you also have to give your children space to deal with their own shadow.”
Pinkett Smith continued,
“There’s lots of things that my mother didn’t know about me that she’s just finding out about me. Our kids don’t want to burden us.”
