Willow Smith is unfazed with the world finding about her parents’ marriage, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith.
The Hollywood A-listers have ripped the veil of illusion from their idyllic union in the last two years, revealing entanglements, separations, and bedroom battles.
All of this came to a head for fans in December, when a petition was established demanding that reporters cease covering every bit of sensationalized information the pair provides about themselves and their relationship.
“The biggest disservice you could do is put up a façade and be like, that’s not the case,” the 21-year-old recently stated in a recent interview.
“I feel I’ve always understood that my parents are their own people.”
The rising musician co-hosts the popular internet show The Red Table Talk with her mother and grandmother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris. Many of the specifics about the Smith family’s dynamic and the couple’s marriage, have come directly from conversations held at the table that has become notorious for its lack of boundaries.
For example, the mother of two revealed that she and singer August Alsina had previously been deeply linked in the past.
Will has also engaged in over-sharing as well.
With the release of his biography, Will, last November, the actor revealed that his wife was not the only one in the marriage involved with someone else — though, unlike Jada, the actor’s mystery lady or women’s identities were never revealed.
He did, however, bring to light a few renowned women, including Halle Berry, whom he would have happily recruited to establish his own harem of girlfriends.
As surprising as the couple’s confessions have been to the public, Willow has never known her parents as anything other than who the world now sees.
“A lot of kids think of their parents like…‘Your whole identity is for me.’ But seeing them in this lifestyle we had, from a very young age it was clear to me they weren’t just my parents,” said the musician. “They’re full, other people who have their own emotions.”
