Pinkett Smith became the subject of the biggest story of the last few weeks, after King Richard star Will Smith got up on stage at the Academy Awards and slapped Chris Rock, who was presenting an award, across the face.
Comedian Rock had made a joke about Pinkett Smith’s haircut – comparing her to GI Jane – allegedly not knowing at the time that she suffers from alopecia.
In the days to have followed since the controversy, the family have kept largely quiet, although Smith did himself apologise for the incident to Rock in a statement.
He claimed he ‘reacted emotionally’ because the ‘joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear.’
But his actress wife has now said ‘discoveries’ made by the Smith family will be shared ‘when the time calls’, in an update posted at the top of her latest Red Table Talks show.

The message read: ‘Considering all that has happened in the last few weeks, the Smith family has been focusing on deep healing.
‘Some of the discoveries around our healing will be shared when the time calls.
‘Until then … the table will continue offering itself to powerful, inspiring and healing testimonies like that of our incredibly impressive first guest.
‘Thanks for joining us, Jada.’
Red Table Talk sees Pinkett Smith, her daughter, Willow Smith, and her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, discuss a wide variety of topics.
Wednesday’s episode featured singer Janelle Monae as the guest who shared her experiences of coming out, overcoming her fears of abandonment and how she healed from the traumatising effects of her father’s drug addiction, where they were also joined by her mother.

Elsewhere, Madagascar star Rock hasn’t said much on the incident but has hinted he will talk about it when he ‘gets paid’ to do so.
According to local outlet Desert Sun, the comedian told audiences in Coachella Valley: ‘I’m OK, I have a whole show and I’m not talking about that until I get paid.’
‘Life is good,’ he added.
Smith was later banned by the Academy from the ceremony for 10 years over the violence.
The news was announced in an open letter from Academy president David Rubin, who described Smith’s actions as ‘unacceptable and harmful’.
He said: ‘The 94th Oscars were meant to be a celebration of the many individuals in our community who did incredible work this past year; however, those moments were overshadowed by the unacceptable and harmful behavior we saw Mr Smith exhibit on stage.’
