The 17-year-old daughter of actor Will Smith and actress Jada Pinkett has revealed on a show how she used to cut herself after the fame of her song Whip My Hair in 2010.
According to her, none of her brothers knew that was what she was doing to herself even Jaden whom she is close to. She says she felt she was going through so much emotional stuff yet she appeared good physically and needed something tangible to pin all that on.

She told her mum, Jada Pinkett Smith, and grandmother, Adrienne Banfield-Norrison, on the web series Red Table Talk that she stopped five years ago.
“After all of that settled down and there was a lull, I was just listening to a lot of dark music and it was just so crazy. I was just plunged into this black hole and I was cutting myself.
“I was kind of just in this grey area of like ‘Who am I? Do I have a purpose? Is there anything that I can do beyond this?.
“I honestly felt like I was experiencing so much emotional pain but my physical circumstances weren’t reflecting that. A lot of adolescent girls struggle with self-harm.
“I never talk about it because it was such a short, weird point in my life. But you have to pull yourself out of it.
“one night [when] I was just like ‘this is actually psychotic’.
“And after that, I just stopped.”
BBC reports that her mother was raw shocked and said she never saw any signs her daughter could be self-harming herself.
