Recent reports have revealed that years ago when Tommy Davidson and Jada Pinkett Smith were working together on Woo, there were some issues behind the scenes that put Davidson in a tight spot and jeopardized his entire career for a while.
The actor got an opportunity to talk to his birth mother, something which was very important for someone in his position and with his history.
However, this clashed directly with the filming schedule of the new production, which placed Davidson in a tight spot.
It was Pinkett Smith who decided to pause work on the production, all so Davidson could have some time to talk to his birth mother.
This came out in recent reports which have shed some light on the relationship between the two during their long careers, and the struggles they have gone through over the years.
When Davidson was a year-and-a-half-old, his birth mother abandoned him in the trash in Mississippi and was saved by a woman who became his adoptive mother.
While many of Davidson’s fans were aware of the fact that he had gone through some difficult times, this revelation seems to have come as a bit of a shock to some.
The two co-stars spoke during an appearance on Red Table Talk where Davidson said: “[The] first time that we worked together — and I really got to know you on the set of Woo — I came out for a scene, and you looked at me, and you said, ‘Something’s wrong with you. I was like, ‘What are you talking about? Let’s just get to work.’”
Davidson further revealed: “I said, ‘My mother contacted my real mother, and she was on the phone. I got a chance to talk to her, but I don’t want to deal with that.[Jada] said, ‘Oh, really? OK, hold up… That’s a wrap!’”
The star said the phone call “led from our conversation to finally meeting my real mom.”
Davidson has been generally closed about his private life, and he has been reluctant to go into more detail about it over the years, which has made this insight an important one for his fans — and those of Pinkett Smith as well.
It is interesting to think about what else the two might have gone through over the years of working, but this will likely be revealed little by little.
One person had this reaction: “This is going to be a tearjerker. I have learned a lot about my self watching your show. Bless you and yours for helping us heal healthily.🙌🏽🙏🏽❤️”
Another commenter stated: “Those tears. They tear at your soul. There’s so much pain at that table. But there’s always an equal amount of opportunity for healing as well. I do believe everyone who sits down, comes away better!”
The actress has a reputation for helping others.
