Willow Smith Admits To Her Mom That She Used To Cut Herself

Willow Smith made a huge admission to her mom’s, Jada Pinkett Smith, Facebook show Red Table Talks.

After finding huge success with her single, “Whip My Hair,” Willow fell into a dark place. She said:

“It was after that whole ‘Whip My Hair’ thing and and I had just stopped doing singing lessons and I was kind of just in this gray area of, ‘Who am I? Do I have a purpose? Is there anything I can do besides this?’ After the tour, the promotion and all that, they wanted me to finish my album and I was like, I’m not going to do that.

“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. It was just so crazy and I was plunged into this black hole, and I was cutting myself.”

It goes without saying that Jada was shocked and horrified. She asked, “What? Really? I didn’t see that part. Cutting myself where?”

The 17-year-old responded, “On my wrist. You can’t see it. I totally lost my sanity there.”

Willow only told one of her closest friends about what was going on at the time, reports Wonderwall:

“I never talk about it because it was such a short, weird point in my life. I honestly felt like I was experiencing so much emotional pain, but my physical circumstances weren’t reflecting that. One night I was like, this is actually psychotic and after that I just stopped.”

A stunned Jada replied, “That’s good to freakin’ know, Willow. I had no idea. I never saw any signs of that.”

We’re so glad to hear that Willow is in a better place now!
