The 25-year-old actor, rapper, and businessman, who takes to Elon Musk for inspiration, has big ambitions for his way ahead. Moreover, the Karate Kid star also loves his mother to the core. In her latest interview with People, Jada Pinkett opened up about a time when she was having suicidal thoughts and through a dark phase of depression. Finding her in distress, her son introduced her to a plant-based psychedelic, ayahuasca therapy.

“I need you to come in here and listen.” This one call from Jaden Smith led to a conversation in the kitchen, which eventually resulted in Pinkett receiving relief from the therapy. The Collateral actress has also admitted to the use of magic mushrooms and other psychedelics to get her health in check. Meanwhile, she also spoke of the love and uniqueness her kids have as their “superpowers.” Finally, she acknowledged the “unconditional love” her kids shared with her as well as her husband.

The duo, who married in 1997, have collaborated in different capacities in movies such as The Pursuit of Happyness and After Earth. Yet, in the very same interview, Jada Pinkett dropped bombshells about her marriage with Will Smith. It was no secret that their matrimony stood shaken when the actress confessed to an “entanglement” with singer August Alsina back in 2016. 

Regardless of their issues, Pinkett retorted that there still lay love in her for the Men In Black actor. Smith seemed to reciprocate the same when he slapped Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars. Further, she also spoke of how he made her happy and at ease. It was enough to move her out of depression medicines and feel “cured”. Yet, despite all, a separation of seven years is where they stand now.
