Willow Smith recently opened up about her stalker and the incident that first made her fear for her safety.
Through PAPER magazine, in the Wednesday October 6 episode of Red table talk, Willow spoke about the terrifying crime to her mother, Jada Pinkett-Smith, and her grandmother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris.
“In December, when we went on a family vacation, [the stalker] actually came to my house and broke in while we were away, “the singer revealed.” Crazy, crazy times. Thank goodness I wasn’t there. “
Essentially, the man found out about Willow’s daily habits and ended up setting up a camp outside his house where he planned to wait for her return.
Jada explained what happened after finding out about her camp. “Once [the police] got all the evidence they needed from inside, we had to take all the stuff out of the fridge because we were afraid he might put something in the drinks or his food to knock him out. We had to go through everything. Toothpaste, everything. Everything in the house had to go, ”she shared.
The man started stalking Willow online after trying to connect with her on social media. When it didn’t work out as he expected, he resorted to in-person harassment.
“They’re monitoring all of your social media accounts to see what your moves are and this guy was doing that to me … for a few years, actually,” Willow added.
The crime ultimately forced Willow to go to court and testify against the man she described as a “pedophile.”
