Jada Pinkett Smith Gets Emotional With Alleged R. Kelly Victim
Jada Pinkett Smith got emotional as she sat down with one of R Kelly’s alleged victims.
Smith joined her daughter Willow and mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones, as they had a sit down with Lisa Van Allen on her Facebook series, “Red Table Talk.”
Following Lifetime’s tell-all docu-series, “Surviving R. Kelly,” Lisa says she feels relief now that she’s able to open up on how she became involved with the disgraced singer.
Lisa claims that her rough childhood allowed her to make a connection with Kelly and she saw him as her “knight in shining armor.” She says she ignored his suspicious behavior.
She goes into his controlling behavior and some of the things he forced her to do,
“When he first told me he had never had a threesome, and I felt like I needed to do that for him because we were together and I was living with him,” Van Allen said in the clip. “I did it, and then he wanted another one and another one, and that’s when it was like ‘Uh oh.’ “
Before Van Allen joined the discussion, Smith started off the episode by talking about her feelings,
“I felt a lot of things. I had a lot of feeling about it. One being, I was like, man, how complicit we all have been,” she said. “That really broke my heart to really think about, we ignored it.”
Jada has previously expressed that she felt guilty for ignoring the allegations against Kelly. She has vowed to help out R. Kelly’s alleged victims.
