Will Smith Reveals How His Mother Caught Him Having S*x
American actor, Will Smith has revealed that his mother once caught him having sex in the kitchen when he was a teenager.
In his memoir, Smith explained that he was ‘deep in the throes of reckless lovemaking’ with his then-partner Melanie Parker on the kitchen floor at 4 am when his mom Caroline walked in.
He recalled being ‘deeply and totally in love’ with Melanie, who he met at Overbrook High School.
Explaining that his girlfriend had moved into Will’s family home after her aunt kicked her out following a fight, he said that the condition had been that Melanie would stay in the basement and there would be ‘no sex’.
However, Smith broke the rule and was caught by his mother less than three months after she moved in.
The incident happened when his mom went to the kitchen for a cup of coffee in the early hours of the morning.
‘And wearing slippers far too quiet to defend her delicate sensibilities, she approached the threshold of the family kitchen.
“Still innocent, she flipped the light switch as she had done tens of thousands of times before. But this time, her eyes landed upon her eldest son and his girlfriend deep in throes of reckless lovemaking”.
He added: “As a teenager, outside of physical injury, you cannot feel worse than having your mother catch you and your girlfriend doggy-style on her kitchen floor”.
Will further revealed that his mother stormed back to her bedroom and Melanie later moved back in with her aunt.
‘I’m still not exactly sure why I did what I did that night. To this day, I have no idea what I was thinking.
‘Of all the experiences I am sharing in this book, this is the individual moment of personal behavior that makes the least sense to me.’
He also revealed how he turned to drugs when his marriage broke down, clashes with his children, and falling in love with his co-stars.
Recall he revealed that he once thought about killing his father so he could “avenge” the abuse his mother suffered.
In excerpts that were published on People, the actor revealed the fraught setting of his early life in Philadelphia with his father, Willard Carroll Smith Sr., and mother Caroline Bright, and how it affected his later life with his father, whom he cared for while he was battling cancer.
