Jada Pinkett Smith resented her father
Jada Pinkett Smith has opened up about the "resentment" she had for her drug addict father when she was growing up
Actress Jada Pinkett Smith has opened up about the "resentment" she had for her drug addict father when she was growing up. Speaking with her half-brother, Caleeb Pinkett, and her "Red Table Talk" co-stars, her daughter Willow and mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones, Smith said: "We had a lot of resentment.
"We had that feeling like we had to be responsible for him (father), but he never had to be responsible for us, and that was a hard pill for me to swallow. He told me at seven, 'I can't be your father. I'm a criminal, I'm an addict and that's just what it is". The 47-year-old actress only learned over the phone from her brother that Rob (father) had died from an overdose shortly after she had had a "horrendous" argument with him, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
She said: "The most difficult part of him dying like that is because he and I had had a horrendous fight when I found out that he relapsed. I was like, 'I don't owe you nothing. You didn't do s**t for me, you didn't do s**t for Caleeb. I don't owe you nothing.' It was one of those."
