One of Hollywood most famous families, Will and Jade-Pinkett Smith over the last two years received a huge amount of bad publicity, because of their oversharing of information.

Will and Jada have divided public opinion since the start of the Red Table Talk on Facebook. The couple often divulged information about their sex life, entanglements, and their deepest darkest thoughts.

However, the parents of Willow and Jaden have been given props for raising kids well in the spotlight, and being successful.

Jaden is a well-known musician and revealed that his family staged an intervention for him to gain weight.

He detailed how his parents helped him gain weight after photos of him looking rather emaciated went viral on the internet.

Jaden shared on Red Table Talk that the weight gain has made him feel better. He sat down with his mom, Jada and his grandmother “Gammy” to discuss issues of the gut.

Jaden said his biggest gut problem is not being hungry when he needs to be and that stress is a contributor. The 23-year old says his breakfast consists of pancakes and syrup every day since he was a child. Adding that the thought of having food on set or before he performs is “repulsive” to him.

He said the family health show in 2019 helped him, as he was assisted by doctors to get a daily routine of vitamins, supplements, and protein shakes into his daily diet.

“It’s like a password that I have to find for my body. I am 10 pounds (4.5 kilograms) heavier now at this point and I feel like I’m keeping on my weight and I am able to build more muscle. “

Pictures of Jaden in Coachella in 2019 went viral that showed him frail and skinny, he admits looking back he “looked likes bones” however he thought he looked great.

But the intervention helped, resulting in him bulking up.
