Jada Pinkett Smith Opens Up About Addiction Struggles

Jada Pinkett-Smith is no stranger to addiction. In addition to growing up with her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, being on drugs, she also had her own issues with alcohol and drugs. She discussed it on the latest edition of Red Table Talk.

Mrs. Will Smith – who said she was more of a weekend drinker – said she like to mix her drugs and drinks. One time, she tried to go to work high. She said she passed out on the set of “The Nutty Professor” after indulging in a mixture of ecstasy, marijuana, and alcohol. Even though she told everyone that it was old medication in a vitamin bottle, she chalked it up to a bad batch of X.

While Jada and Adrienne laughed at the absurdity of the excuse, it did what it needed to do for her. “I tell you what I did though,” Jada explained. “Got my [butt] together and got on that set. That was the last time.”
