The wife of actor Will Smith revealed the eye-catching news to her fans and the world 4 years ago during an episode of her viral Facebook Watch chat show Red Table Talk–
“My sort of addictions jump, they jump around. When I was younger, I definitely think I had a s*x addiction of some kind, yes, that everything could be fixed by s*x.”
She further explains that time of her life-
“I am a binger, and I always have to watch myself and I can just get obsessed with things. It’s not what you’re doing but how you’re with it. Why you’re doing it. It’s the behavior that’s attached to it because if you want to have a lot of s*x, that’s great, but why are you having all that s*x? That’s what you’ve got to look at.”
Almost anything in copious amounts is not good for anyone’s health, and fans would be glad to know that the Collateral star showed a healthy approach to dealing with her addiction to s*x.

Much to her relief, Jada says that she’s happy she wasn’t in a relationship during that time of her life-
“I wasn’t in a relationship when I had a po*rn addiction, believe it or not. Thank goodness.”
