You can really tell that Will Smith is not comfortable with his toxic relationship being played out on social media and Red Table Talk.
Sometimes, Will just wants to chill in his own house and not be bothered.
He is clearly telling Jada here that his social media brand is very important to him, so before she starts filming him about their relationship, could she please tell him in advance. Instead of understanding and listening to what he says, she belittles him and their relationship.
She also must have released the video somewhere because it is all over social media now, according to Too Fab.
The Smiths have never been shy about airing their dirty laundry… but a newly resurfaced clip suggests one half is less keen than the other. The Instagram Live video, shot on Jada Pinkett Smith’s phone in 2019 and re-shared on Reddit on Thursday morning, shows Will not exactly happy about being put on the spot for her social media.
In the clip Jada, with camera trained on her husband, says therapist Esther Perel is booked as a guest on “Red Table Talk”, and asks — apparently without warning — “Would you say she has been instrumental in you and I redefining our relationship?”
“I would say: don’t just start filming me without asking me if you can film me,” a very unimpressed-looking Will responds.
“Oh my goodness,” Jada scoffs. “Esther, come help us again, please. I’m still dealing with foolishness.”
Despite Will’s obvious discomfort — Jada presses again.
“Would you say that she helped us heal the hurts that we caused between one another?” she asks, turning the camera back on him.
“My social media presence is my bread and butter, okay?” he pleads. “So you can’t just use me for social media and not, you know, don’t just start rolling. I’m standing in my house. Don’t just start rolling. Don’t…”
Ignoring his protests, Jada turns the camera back on herself and smiles: “Please watch Esther at the Red Table, because she’s helped us a lot. Can’t you tell?”
Jada then had Esther Perel on the show and further talked down about Will Smith in front of the world.
Tough times for the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
