The memoir of the star – Will – recalls how devastated his son Jaden, now 23, was after the critical and commercial failure of their 2013 film After Earth.

Shared in a clip with People, the actor wrote: ‘After Earth was a terrible box office and critical failure… And what was worse, Jaden took the hit.’

“Fans and the press were absolutely mean; they said and printed things about Jaden that I refuse to repeat. Jaden had faithfully done everything I told him to do, and I had coached him to the worst public assault he’d ever witnessed.

The Pursuit of Happiness actor was heartbroken when Jaden, who was 15 years old at the time of After Earth’s release, told him he wanted to be emancipated.

“We never talked about it, but I know he felt betrayed. He felt misled and lost faith in my leadership,” Smith said. “When Jaden asked if he was an emancipated minor at age 15, my heart broke. hurt your children.’

Just as he wrote about lessons he learned when it came to Jaden’s career, he also wrote about the knowledge he gained when it came to his daughter Willow, now 21.

After the release of her hit Whip My Hair in 2010, Willow signed up for a month-long tour opening for Justin Bieber. However, she did not enjoy the tour and told her father that she wanted to stop at the end of the European leg of the trip.

Smith reminded her that she had upcoming tour dates in Australia and therefore couldn’t stop touring. His daughter took drastic measures.

Willow hopped into the kitchen for breakfast. “Good morning, Daddy,” Willow said cheerfully as she jumped to the fridge,” Smith recalls in his new book.

My jaw was almost dislocated, dislodged and shattered on the kitchen floor: my world-dominating, hair-sweating, future global superstar was completely bald. During the night, Willow had shaved her entire head.

‘My mind was racing and scrambling—how was she supposed to untie her hair if she didn’t have one? Who the hell would pay to see a kid swing his head back and forth?’

‘But before I could react, I felt something slowly spin, shift, until it clicked into place: in a moment of divine connection and revelation, she had reached me. I leaned over, peered deep into her eyes and said, “I see. I’m so sorry. I see you.”

Will’s memoir takes readers through his relationship with all three of his children: Trey, 29, Jaden, 23, and Willow, 21.

He will also describe his marriage to Sheree Zampino, with whom he shares Trey, and Jada Pinkett Smith, the actress and mother of Jaden and Willow, both the good and the bad of all his relationships.
