The 17 -year-old recently opened up on her Facebook watch series titled Red Table Talk.
Willow was joined by her grandmother and her mom, Jada Pinkett Smith. Her mother asked her what her biggest loss in life was, which lead to a confession that shocked her family and viewers.
“I would have to say I honestly feel like I lost my sanity at one point,” Willow said. “It was after that whole ‘Whip My Hair’ thing 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 and the promotion and all of that … they wanted me to finish my album,” she continues. “And I was like, ‘I’m not gonna do that.’ After all of that kind of settled down, and it was, like, a lull, I was listening to a lot of dark music and it was just so crazy, and I was just plunged into this black hole and I was, like, cutting myself and doing crazy things.”
Her mother then enquired what led her daughter to uch dark feelings.
“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,” she recalled. “It’s been, like, five years.”
“Well, I had no idea,” Jada replied. “I never saw any signs of it.”
