The dysfunctional relationship between beloved Hollywood couple Will and Jada Pinkett Smith that spilled over in public at the Academy Awards ceremony continues to captivate Americans who are delving into why a storybook marriage went badly off the rails.
Will Smith’s nationally televised smacking of Chris Rock in the head continues to dominate the news cycle nearly two weeks after the actor lost his cool and charged the stage over a joke about his spouse’s hair and social media has been buzzing ever since.
Signs that there was something badly off-kilter were there for years and an admission from Pinkett Smith that she was given lessons in how to masturbate at a young age by her grandmother has drawn attention after a clip from an interview of her weird confession has resurfaced on Twitter.
In a video from a 2018 episode of her Facebook talk show Red Table Talk, the “Matrix” movie franchise star dished on what she learned from grandma.

“My grandmother taught me about self-pleasuring because she wanted me to know that that pleasure was from me,” she said, pointing at herself, “she didn’t want me to fall into the hands of a man and if he gave me pleasure to think that that was him.”
“And she taught me at nine,” Pinkett Smith boasted in the conversation with her mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones, and her own young daughter, Willow.
Twitter reacted, with one user saying, “This might explain some things….”
This might explain some things….🤨

Her grandmother must have been a Disney employee.

It sounds like Jada (Will Smith’s wife) was sexually abused by her grandmother at 9 yrs old. This explains a lot.

My grandmother taught me how to be a child at nine years old….. I had no clue what “self-pleasuring” was at nine and I’m glad I had my innocence. This woman needs Jesus…. 🙄

I think I was helping my grandma bake cookies at 9.

Another resurfaced video offers more insight into the Smiths’ turbulent marriage, this one of Will Smith being subjected to apparent mental abuse from his wife, possibly shedding light on what led to his brutal rage that boiled over at this year’s Oscars.
(Video: You Tube)
Will Smith’s violent outburst and striking of Rock earned him an official rebuke when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences punished the Best Actor winner by banning him from appearing at the Oscars for the next decade.

“The 94th Oscars were meant to be a celebration of the many individuals in our community who did incredible work this past year; however, those moments were overshadowed by the unacceptable and harmful behavior we saw Mr. Smith exhibit on stage,” the Academy said in a statement, “During our telecast, we did not adequately address the situation in the room. For this, we are sorry. This was an opportunity for us to set an example for our guests, viewers and our Academy family around the world, and we fell short — unprepared for the unprecedented,”
The ban may have hurt Smith but the real suffering is at home.
