JADA Pinkett Smith has her work cut out.
The actress is apparently at her wits’ end as fights to save her wild-child daughter Willow Smith, and her rocky marriage to superstar Will Smith.
Jada, 42, is determined to pull mega-talented but deeply troubled 13-year-old Whip My Hair singer Willow back from the brink after several episodes of shocking behavior.
But she’s struggling to maintain the facade that her 15-year marriage remains solid.
“These are very stressful days for Jada,” a source told American tabloid the National Enquirer.
“But she’s selflessly putting aside her personal anguish over her problems with Will to break through and rescue Willow.
“Jada is terrified that Willow’s already a victim of the ‘too much, too soon’ lifestyle that’s destroyed so many young performers.
“She’s even admitted that she and Will might have made mistakes allowing Willow and her big brother Jaden to reach for the stars so young.
“But Jada’s convinced that tough love combined with quality time together can undo the negative effects of developing Willow’s talent at the expense of her childhood.
“Jada told a friend, ‘I know in my heart Willow’s a good girl. And I’ll do anything to save my baby’.
“The children have created a huge strain on Will and Jada’s marriage, and it doesn’t help that the couple appear to live separate lives.
“Jada is encouraging Willow to open up to her.
“They shop together, gossip together and just take time to laugh with each other. Jada believes that while Willow may have been swept up in the tidal wave of show business fame, she can still have a normal childhood.
“She’s comforting Willow with a mother’s love, showing her that while fame is fleeting, family is forever.”
