Will Smith’s new memoir, comes with a tidal wave of revelations and new information surrounding the actor, his life, and upbringing.

In one of the stories told in the book, Smith recalls in great detail the day his mother walked in on him having sex with his high school girlfriend, Melanie Parker, in their kitchen.

“And wearing slippers far too quiet to defend her delicate sensibilities, she approached the threshold of the family kitchen,” Smith described of the encounter. “Still innocent, she flipped the light switch as she had done tens of thousands of times before. But this time, her eyes landed upon her eldest son and his girlfriend deep in throes of reckless lovemaking.”

Smith continues to explain that his mother would eventually walk in on them having sex, then storm back upstairs.

“I’m still not exactly sure why I did what I did that night,” he wrote. “To this day, I have no idea what I was thinking. Of all the experiences I am sharing in this book, this is the individual moment of personal behavior that makes the least sense to me.” 

According to ET Online, in the memoir, Smith also describes how important Parker was to him, which made their breakup affect him that much more.

“From the day I met her, Melanie had been the center of my life,” he writes. “Healing the pain of her trauma became my constant preoccupation. The look in Melanie’s eyes became the substitute for Gigi’s approval. I’ve always needed a woman to achieve for.”

Will also dives into his relationship with his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, and how he was jealous of 2Pac back when he was with her.

“Though they were never intimate, their love for each other is legendary – they defined ‘ride or die,’” he wrote. “In the beginning of our relationship, my mind was tortured by their connection. He was PAC! and I was me. He triggered the perception of myself as a coward. I hated that I wasn’t what he was in the world, and I suffered a raging jealousy: I wanted Jada to look at me like that.”Will is available to purchase at bookstores now.
