Jada Pinkett Smith's Memoir Will Cover Everything From Her Battle With 'Suicidal Depression' To Her Discovery Of Self-Love
Tell a tale! Jada Pinkett Smith is all set to discuss her life in a new memoir. The 51-year-old's untitled work will be published by Dey Street Books of HarperCollins Publishers in fall 2023.
A press release noted that the actress will share lessons learned "in the course of a difficult but riveting journey," as the book will take its readers through Jada's rise from the "depths of suicidal depression" to the epitome of self-discovery — all while celebrating "authentic feminine power."
Fans can expect various aspects of the Red Table Talk host's life to be disclosed in the tome. "With no holds barred, Jada reveals her unconventional upbringing in Baltimore — from the child of two addicts to a promising theatre student and a violent interlude as a petty drug dealer — followed by a parallel rise to stardom alongside her close friend 2Pac, then falling in love with and marrying Will Smith, and a joyous embrace of motherhood," the synopsis shared.
In her tell-all, the Collateral star will also talk about her experience dealing with a crisis at the age of 40 while recounting the "excruciating choices she was forced to make to redefine her life in every way."
The description states that the title features two love stories — one leading to her marriage with Will, while the other is focused on herself.
Carrie Thornton, the editorial director and VP of Dey Street Books, said in a statement that the world had imposed many labels and narratives on the talk show host.
"This is down to the realities of our media landscape, but also the roles thrust upon women by culture," she explained, adding that at the center of the "speculations and false stories" is a woman who's had to reconcile her personhood with the needs of those she loves.
"This memoir is Jada giving the world her truth, taking readers on a journey from lost girl to woman warrior," Thornton added. "It is my great honor to take that journey with her."
The news of Jada's memoir comes after Will, 54, published his memoir — a bestseller — in November 2021. The book was co-written with Mark Manson, the author of several bestsellers.
The book's details were revealed by People.
