Willow Smith has nothing but respect for her parents Jada Pinkett and Will Smith's "real love."
During the Monday (September 28) episode of Red Table Talk, Willow, 19, responded to Jada's decision to open up about her romance with August Alsina in a July episode of the Facebook Watch series. "I want to put it on the table. I'm so proud of you. To be able to see you and Dad do that, for me, that was like, 'OK, that's the real deal,'" Willow admitted. "That's real love."
"[It was a] full blast of, like, flaws, and feeling and just the total breakdown of any mask," Jada replied, to which Jada's mom, Adrienne Banfield-Jones, praised her daughter for her openness and "courage" in the bombshell episode. "Like, when you can be like, 'I'm with you. I'm going to stand by you and I'm going to hold your hand'... that's really important,'" Willow continued.
As you know, Jada went viral after discussing her romance with Alsina. “We separated for a time," she confessed during the episode, admitting that the Hollywood couple took a break to figure out what would make them happy. Despite the "entanglement" with Alsina, the actress eventually returned to her husband.
"Through that particular journey, I learned so much about myself and was able to really confront a lot of emotional immaturity, emotional insecurity and I was really able to do some really deep healing," she continued. "And as I came through and started to realize certain things about you and I, he decided to break all communication with me which was totally understandable. And I let that be and hadn't talked to him since so it is a little weird that all this stuff is coming out now since this was several [years ago]."
