Jada Pinkett is revealing more intimate details about her life. She claims that at one point in her life, she was addicted to p*rnography.
Jada spoke out about her addiction on her Facebook show, Red Table Talk.
Here’s what she said:
I actually feel like I was using addiction maybe a little lightly and now, maybe I’ll say I had an unhealthy relationship to porn at one point in my life when I was trying to practice abstinence.
It was actually like feeling like an emptiness, at least you think it is, but it’s actually not.
And actually reading some of the effects of pornography, like the idea that it really gives you false expectations, as far as sexual interactions.
I can definitely see with men, you know how a woman should always be willing and ready, he should be able to have sex how ever he wants, and you should enjoy it no matter what.”
The actress has been married to Will Smith for almost 22 years, and said she ended up using porn because she felt an “emptiness,” adding that porn gave her “false expectations” when connecting with partners.
In the 23-minute episode, Pinkett Smith, Willow, and Banfield-Jones talked about the shame surrounding the enjoyment of porn, but how an addiction to porn can negatively impact a person’s career and personal relationships.
In other news, whispers began swirling about a potential affair between August Alsina and Pinkett Smith since the the singer’s “Nunya” video came out in early April. The visuals contain text messages to a woman named Koren (Jada’s given middle name), which prompted fans to dig deeper into their ongoing friendship.
