A week after Will Smith’s daughter Willow Smith shared a teary-eyed photo on social media, the ‘Whip My Hair’ singer has shared a cryptic message that has sparked even more support from fans.

Willow’s previous emotional Instagram snap in mid-May showed the singer with red, swollen eyes and a single tear rolling down her face. The picture was accompanied by the simple caption: "pantomime".

And now Willow has continued her mystery posts on Twitter, with a tweet simply reading. “When you approach a bruised heart with tenderness, the true beauty of existence opens itself.”

The poetic phrase caused a reaction among Willow’s 3.3million followers with one Twitter fan replying: “You say the most healing things.”

While the meaning of the mysterious Twitter post has yet to be revealed, it could be referring to Willow’s recent era of ups and downs which has seen some big highlights for her music career, but also very public family drama.

Earlier this week, the 22-year-old received the first-ever NFT accolade from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for her multi-platinum career. “I am beyond grateful to have the opportunity to engage in the sacred process that is music,” she said in thanks.

There have also been some low points, most famously dad Will causing an uproar after infamously slapping comedian Chris Rock on stage at the Oscars last year.

And in April, Willow’s talk show alongside mom Jada Pinkett Smith and grandmother Adrienne Banfield-Norris, Red Table Talk, was canceled by Facebook Watch after five seasons.

The show was the backdrop for quite a few Smith family revelations, including Willow’s mom Jada speaking out about her struggle with alopecia and an interview with Will himself amid rumors of cheating and a marriage split.

Jada shared a hopeful reaction after the cancellation, hinting that the show could be back. "We are so grateful to have had such a beautiful partnership with Facebook Watch and we are sorry to see the entire team disband. We wish everyone well in their new journeys to come," Jada said, adding: "We at Red Table are in talks of finding a new home and we'll see you soon."
