Writing a biography on her life and “difficult marriage to Will Smith,” Jada Pinkett Smith
Publisher Dey Street Books announced on Thursday that Jada Pinkett Smith will write a biography about her ascent to fame and “difficult marriage to Will Smith” in the fall of 2013.
A “no holds barred” account of the influential actor and TV host’s “tough but enthralling journey” from the depths of suicidal melancholy to the pinnacles of personal rediscovery and the celebration of real feminine strength” is what the upcoming book is marketed as. The memoir’s title has not yet been made public.
The “Red Table Talk” panelist’s “unconventional” Baltimore background as the daughter of two addicts who studied theater and briefly trafficked drugs before becoming a Hollywood celebrity will be described in full in the book,
according to Dey Street Books. In addition, Pinkett Smith’s close relationship with the late rapper Tupac Shakur, her romance with Will Smith, and her “joyous embrace of parenthood” will all be covered in the film.
“The world has given Jada Pinkett Smith countless labels and tales. This is due to the realities of our media ecosystem as well as the roles that culture has imposed on women, according to a statement from Carrie Thornton, vice president of Dey Street Books.
“A lady who, like so many women, has had to balance her personhood with the needs of those she loves is at the center of all the rumors and untrue tales. By sharing her reality in this biography, Jada is “taking readers on a journey from lost girl to woman warrior.”
The revelation of the memoir comes following Will Smith’s 10-year Oscars ban as a result of slapping presenter Chris Rock in the face during this year’s ceremony.
After Rock made a joke about Pinkett Smith’s shaved head, which sparked a bigger discussion on alopecia areata, an autoimmune condition that causes fast hair loss, Smith slapped Rock.
Since the Oscars incident brought alopecia to public attention, Pinkett Smith has been outspoken about her battles with the disorder.
The “Matrix Revolutions” star expressed her hope that Smith and Rock would eventually “have an opportunity to heal, speak things out, and reconcile the status of the world today” in a June episode of her well-liked Facebook Watch series, “Red Table Talk.”
We truly need each other more than ever, and we need them both, she continued. “Will and I are carrying on as we have for the past 28 years till then. And that is to keep working together to understand this thing we call life.
