A newly-surfaced Instagram Live video, shot on Jada Pinkett Smith's phone in 2019 and re-shared on Reddit on Thursday morning, shows Will Smith not exactly happy about being put on the spot for her social media.
In the clip Jada, with camera aimed on her husband, says therapist Esther Perel is booked as a guest on "Red Table Talk", and asks — apparently without warning — "Would you say she has been instrumental in you and I redefining our relationship?"
Will responds, "I would say: don't just start filming me without asking me if you can film me."
"Oh my goodness," Jada says. "Esther, come help us again, please. I'm still dealing with foolishness."
Jada presses again.
"Would you say that she helped us heal the hurts that we caused between one another?" she asks, turning the camera back on him.
He replies, "My social media presence is my bread and butter, okay? So you can't just use me for social media and not, you know, don't just start rolling. I'm standing in my house. Don't just start rolling. Don't..."
Ignoring his protests, Jada turns the camera back on herself and smiles: "Please watch Esther at the Red Table, because she's helped us a lot. Can't you tell?"
During her visit to the Red Table, Perel and Jada discussed infidelity and divorce.
