The actress went on to note that children Jaden and Willow were ‘OK with’ the stories featured in her book. She made sure that the ones ‘about them specifically’ according to an interview with InStyle.
The Daytime Emmy winner clarified that her 22-year-old daughter is an “avid reader” and read through “a huge part of [the] book before it was even edited.”
Jada gushed about the situation saying “She loved it. She couldn’t wait. She [was] like, ‘Mom, I’m taking this copy. I got to finish my read.’”
While Willow was allegedly “super excited about it,” the “Whip My Hair” singer’s siblings have yet to read the book, which hits stands Tuesday.
“The boys, I just told them what was in it,” Jada recalled of Jaden, 25, and her 30-year-old stepson Trey Smith’s reactions.
“They’ll read it eventually,” she predicted.
As of late, Jada confessed that her recent confessions about her marriage with Will Smith have left Willow and Jaden “feeling bad” for their dad.
“They know he has been going through a lot lately and this isn’t helping,” a source told one outlet. “They wish some of their family’s private matters remained private.
“[Will] is trying not to let any outside noise impact him,” the insider continued. “Will loves Jada and feels like he has always had her back and always will. He has been trying to be supportive, while also taking care of himself.”
Jada has admitted that the bombshells from the book have actual “benefitted” her relationship “a lot.”
“You never stop learning about your partner,” she told InStyle. “It gave [Will] such intimate insight into everything in a way that I don’t know if he would’ve had without a book.”
Jada explained that her husband was able to “learn so much without having to ask the questions,” adding, “I think that’s been a huge benefit. It’s really beautiful.”
In a conversation with the New York times via email, Smith even admitted that the memoir “woke [him] up.”
Will shared that he also was not oblivious to the public commentary about his relationship with his wife and her romantic entanglement in 2020 with actor August Alsina. Smith even went as far claiming it was not “cheating.”
Jada also went on to admit the two were living apart for years but willing to “work through whatever” and not considering a divorce.
