Will Smith is giving fans an up close and personal look into his life
In his new memoir, Will, the actor opens up about his first real heartbreak. Will was 16-years-old and dating a girl named Melanie. Melanie was going through a lot as her mother was imprisoned for killing her father.
Melanie was later invited to live with Will and his family. “The look in Melanie’s eyes became the substitute for Gigi’s approval. I’ve always needed a woman to achieve for,” said Smith. Will’s career began to take off and he was always away performing shows and eventually Melanie cheated. Will was brokenhearted and he began having sex with as many women as he could.
“I desperately need relief but as there is no pill for heartbreak, I resorted to the homeopathic remedies of shopping and rampant sexual intercourse,” he wrote. “Up until this point in my life, I had only had sex with one woman other than Melanie, but over the next few months, I went full ghetto hyena.”
“I had sex with so many women, and it was so constitutionally disagreeable to the core of my being, that I developed a psychosomatic reaction to having an orgasm,” he added. “It would literally make me gag and sometimes even vomit… In every case, though, I hoped to God this beautiful stranger would be ‘the one’ who would love me, who would make this pain go away, but invariably, there I was, retching and wretched. And the look in the eyes of the women even further deepened my agony.”
