Celebrity Mum, Jada Pinkett Shares How She & Hubby, Will Smith Swiftly Intervened After Son, Jaden, Who Adopted The Vegan Lifestyle Began Wasting Away

Celebrity mum-of-two, actress and television host, Jada Pinkett Smith has revealed that she and her Hollywood actor husband, Will Smith were forced to intervene when their son Jaden turned grey after embracing a new approach to healthy eating.

Jaden, 21, had previously cut out all animal products from his diet, choosing to become a vegan but the lack of protein saw him looking ‘drained’. Speaking on her Facebook Watch show Red Table Talk, Jada said:

“Will and I had a bit of an intervention with Jaden because he’s a vegan now, but we realised 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.”

Will and Jada host the co-show, which this week featured Jaden, their daughter Willow, 18, Will’s 26-year-old son Trey, and Jada’s mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones, and focused on healthy eating habits and dieting.

The life-saving intervention saw Jaden move to a vegetarian diet instead of a vegan one, meaning he can consume animal products including eggs and cheese, but still shuns meat.

Speaking about the changes to his diet, Jaden revealed:

“I’ll go vegan for a week or so but for the past year I’ve been vegetarian.”

Jaden’s vegan diet has also seen him fall ill during Coachella, and a spell of dizziness and nausea in Australia saw the youngster hospitalised.
