Jada, 52, stunned fans last week when she revealed she and Oscar-winner Will, 55, have been secretly separated since 2016.
The actress also claimed Chris Rock had asked her out on a date after hearing rumours she and Will were divorcing, and that when Will infamously slapped the comedian at the Oscars, it was the first time in years he had referred to her as his wife.
In another shock confession, Jada said she had allowed people to think of her as an adulterer because Will wasn’t ‘ready’ to tell the world about their split.
In the wake of all their mum’s claims, Willow and Jaden are said to be ‘wishing for privacy’ and also ‘feel sorry for their dad’ amid the headlines about him.
A source told ET: ‘They know he has been going through a lot lately and this isn’t helping.’

They added: ‘They wish some of their family’s private matters remained private.’
The insider also commented on how Will’s doing, saying he’s ‘trying to stay busy and has been hanging out with his good friends and his kids’.
Both Willow and Jaden have showbiz careers of their own, with the former being a musician and the latter also working in the music industry as well as being an actor.

Jada recently caught heat over her marriage revelations, with fans pleading with the star to ‘stop talking’.
In a new interview with Today’s Hoda Kotb, Jada said she and Will are ‘in a deep, healing space’ and are ‘really concentrating on healing the relationship between them’.

‘There’s no divorce on paper. We really have been working hard. That’s the whole thing. We are working very hard at bringing our relationship together. Back to a life partnership.’
But Jada’s latest public update rattled some fans, with one writing on social media: ‘Please remove us all from the family group chat.’
Another added on X, formerly Twitter: ‘Will Smith really be going through it, Jada really needs to stop talking at this point.’
‘Jada and Will doing this s*** on purpose,’ someone else complained.
