Will Smith took over his wife Jada’s Red Table to sit down and hash out why his relationship with his former tv mom, Janet Hubert, ended in a feud that almost ended her career.
Will Smith and Janet Hubert reportedly did not get along on the set of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, which started when Will Smith was just 21 and Janet Hubert was 34.
Janet has opened up about how rowdy Will was on set and how he told ‘yo mamma so Black’ jokes to warm up the studio audience, but actually offended her with the jokes.
Check that out here:
Will admitted that at the time he was at the height of his career and that he was not considerate or “kind” to Janet. He revealed that he ran with a 20 person entourage of his Philly homeboys, even while on the set of the show. And he admitted he was not considerate of Janet, who was older than him and who had just given birth, so needed peace and quiet off camera.
Will spoke with a therapist to get to the root of his behavior on the set of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. And he discovered that the reason he acted the way he did on set was because he was re-creating his own family dynamic with his TV family. And in his own family he had to be funny in order to keep his father from abusing his mother.
