The Daily Mail is reporting that the wife of A-list actor Will Smith has revealed that she has an addiction to sex.

"Alcoholism and drug addiction runs through my family and I've had my own addiction that I've had to get over", Pinkett Smith admitted.

Jada opens up about being addicted to sex at a point in her life, August talks about his addiction to Percocet after a awful fall on stage and how he managed to overcome it and Ashley Marie addresses her addiction to marijuana.

"I've been to the top of money, I've had all the sex that I've ever wanted, I've had all of the adoration", the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air alum, 49, said during an appearance on TIDAL's "Rap Radar" podcast on July 5.

"There's a stigma and a stereotype attached to addiction that makes it hard for people to seek the help that they need", she said. "I could tell when my mother was high".

But to her credit, she said, she realized she had a problem - especially when it came to drinking - and curbed it before things went too far.

"I think I didn't find out my mother was addicted to heroin until I was in my teens", she said.

She said: "My sort of addictions jump". "When I was younger, I definitely think I had a sex addiction of some kind". "I was in the house by myself and I had those two bottles of wine and was going for the third bottle and was like, 'now hold up, you in this house by yourself going for your third bottle of wine?"

Adrienne has now been 27 years clean, and broke down while talking about her past.

The actress also revealed that she had previously battled an alcohol addiction and that she realised she had hit rock bottom when she drank three bottles of wine whilst home alone.

Pinkett Smith elaborated later: "If you want to have a lot of sex, that's great".

"At that time, I didn't think I was anything without a man", she explained.

"That's what you've got to look at", Smith said.

That's the thing about me: "I can go cold turkey", she explains. Just because I was in an exploration state and I was abstaining from men. Or she's nodding off, falling asleep in the middle of something. You can create so much pleasure, you just constantly want it'.
