'Red Table Talk:' Will & Jada-Pinkett Smith Talk Jaden's Intervention after Drastic Weight Loss
Will Smith and his wife Jada recently revealed they had to stage an intervention for their son Jaden after the rapper/actor’s drastic weight loss a while back.
The famous couple made the revelation during the last episode of Jada’s Facebook Watch series "Red Table Talk."
For the first time, Will hijacked his wife’s show earlier this week and called an emergency family meeting to discuss eating habits. At the table was Will, Jada, their kids Jaden and Willow, Will’s son Trey, and Jada’s mom Adrienne Banfield-Jones.
Still To Come: "Totally lost my sanity for a moment there. I never talk about it..."
After the "Aladdin" actor recounted his unhealthy eating habits during the family’s recent vacation, the spotlight turned to Jaden, 21.
"He’s a vegan now, but we realized he wasn’t getting enough protein, so he was wasting away. He just looked drained, he was just depleted; he wasn’t getting the nutrients."
JADEN CLEARS THINGS UP
"He had the dark circles under his eyes, there was even a little grayness to his skin," Will added. "We got really nervous, but you are definitely looking better now."
Jaden explained that, while he once tried to go vegan, he is now a vegetarian. "I’d go vegan for a week or so but for the past year I’ve been vegetarian. But everything else you guys are saying is right," he said, confirming his parents' accounts.
MORE ABOUT THE DIETS
According to CBS News, Vegetarian diets avoid animal flesh but include egg and dairy products while Vegan diets avoid all animal-derived products including dairy, eggs, and even honey.
Jaden further suggested that his body changes had much to do with him "eating like two meals a day, and maybe one." "Maybe just that one big meal, and I’m like, 'Oh, you know, I didn’t get around to it,'" revealed the "Karate Kid" star.
Jada’s "Red Table Talk," which she co-hosts with Willow and Banfield-Jones, has always been an avenue for the family to share some of their deepest struggles.

"Totally lost my sanity for a moment there," Willow said at the time. "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."
