Willow Smith felt like she lost her 'sanity'

IANS  |  Los Angeles 

Singer-actress Smith felt like she lost her "sanity" after finding success in the music industry at the age of nine.

On the second episode of her mother Smith's Facebook Watch series "Red Table Talk", opened up about releasing her hit song "my hair" in 2010. During the episode, which focused on surviving loss, Jada asked what's been her biggest loss so far in her life.

"I honestly feel like I lost my at one point," Willow confessed, reports

"It was after that whole 'my hair' thing and I had just like stopped doing singing lessons and I was kind of in this grey area of, 'I? Do I have a purpose? Is there anything I can do besides this?'"

"After the tour and the promotion and all of that, they wanted me to finish my album and I was just like, 'I'm not gonna do that'," Willow continued.

"And after all that kind of settled down and it was like a lull, I was just listening to a lot of dark music and it was just so crazy."

Willow added: "I was just plunged into this black hole and I was like cutting myself."

A shocked Jada replied: "What? Really? When were you cutting yourself? I didn't see that part."

Willow explained that it was "a long time ago" and she cut herself on her wrist.

"Totally lost my for a moment there," Willow shared, adding that no one knew except for one friend.

After hearing Willow talk about self-harming, Jada shed tears.
