Jada Pinkett Smith talks about her intention not to lend money to family and friends.
Following Tuesday’s Red Table Talk, Jada Pinkett Smith, mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris and daughter Williow Smith asked the Fielder Viewer questions on a combination of topics related to “awkward” situations.
Samantha, a woman from Queens, asked the trio if they were loved ones asking for money.
Mansfield Norris, 67, jokingly said to her daughter, “You should be able to answer that.”
She also shared her point of view on lending money.
Jada Pinkett Smith said, “For socialmediagossips like us who came from countries where we didn’t have much, don’t feel guilty. She also adds, “I’ve spent so many years feeling guilty and my guilt made me feel like I owe everyone and I couldn’t say no.”
Pinkett also stated that she came up with a few rules when loved ones asked for money. She said, “First of all, I don’t borrow money, I just give money that I am willing to give, that’s a gift, I don’t borrow money because it creates a lot of problems, just as far away from other than socialmediagossips who are you repay or what do you have? ‘
She also adds, “I tend not to give where I can’t just say. Here’s a gift for you.” Especially socialmediagossips who are close to me “because I’m not trying to have a fallout over money.”
Pinkett Smith also said that she will only help others by asking for financial assistance if she knows they are “ready for that help”.
The ‘Girls Trip’ actress said the general message to Samantha is, “Don’t feel guilty just because we turned ourselves upside down.” You don’t own anyone. ‘
