Will Smith's wife has handled some very tough subjects on the latest season so far, revealing that a recent episode discussing the death of former Miss USA Cheslie Kryst left her unsettled.

She shared: "The Cheslie Kryst episode has been the most personal table for me yet. Listening to @aprils_hr, Cheslie's mother read the note Cheslie left to her before jumping to her death, brought me right back into my experiences of such overwhelming, unbearable despair that I was consumed by everyday."
