Jada Pinkett Smith has revealed that she once had a precarious relationship with porn.

In a new episode of Red Table Talk from Monday, the 47-year-old actress said she “had a little porn addiction” in the past. 

“I wasn’t in a relationship when I had a porn addiction, believe it or not, thank goodness,” Pinkett Smith said to her co-hosts, daughter, Willow Smith, and mother, Adrienne Banfield-Jones.

Pinkett Smith continued, “I actually feel like I was using ‘addiction’ a little lightly. And maybe I’ll say now that I had an unhealthy relationship to porn at one point in my life where I was trying to practice abstinence.”

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.

On Sunday, the rumored relationship came to light again when Alsina posted a photo of his own puffy face, joking that Will Smith caught up to him and laid down a whupping. 

“Will finally caught up to me about all that Jada crap that was going on in the news,” Alsina wrote. “Let’s just say, he whooped my axs!! Guess that ALI training really paid off.”
