Jada Pinkett Smith’s drugs addictions and eating disorders of the past have been revealed.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith sold their multi-million mansion recently.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith were involved in a Scientology school, but Jada Pinkett Smith’s newest revelations about past addictions might be surprising to some. Jada Pinkett Smith once openly spoke with her mother, Adrienne Banfield Jones, about their past.
It turns out Jada Pinkett Smith’s mother became pregnant with Jada Pinkett Smith when she was still a teenager. As a single mother, Adrienne became addicted to drugs for years, only quitting when Jada Pinkett Smith was around 17 or 18 years old. Jada Pinkett Smith says she used those experiences as a “motivation” for “power” in her own marriage to Will Smith.
Opening up on Facebook recently, Jada Pinkett Smith recalls growing up in a “drug-infested neighborhood” she likens to a “war zone.” She honestly did not think she would live past age 21, for her reaching age 40 was a “surreal moment.” Jada Pinkett Smith just celebrated her birthday the other day as it turns out.
For Jada Pinkett Smith, drugs addictions were an ever present danger in her earlier life. She remembers thinking:
“I wonder what I’m going to eat tonight because there’s no food here. How am I going to get to school? And is my mom going to be okay today? Will this be one more day she survives her addiction?”
What’s more Jada Pinkett Smith revealed she suffered from “many addictions, of several kinds.” What exactly this means is never specified, but considering the context of the situation other media publications assume a Jada Pinkett Smith drug addition or eating disorder as a possibility. She recalls having a “very difficult time with dealing with my problems in life” when younger. With wisdom comes age, so now Jada Pinkett Smith says, “Today, at 42, I have my wisdom, my heart and my conscience as the only tools to overcome life’s inevitable obstacles. I have become a good problem solver with those tools, and I am damn proud.”
