Jada Pinkett Smith and her family were, thankfully, out of town when an overzealous fan decided to break into their home and have a look around, but the woman has been issued a restraining order and is on probation after the incident.
The Smiths are the latest celebrities to endure a home invasion after 26-year old Ariel Archer entered their home back in March and took a little tour. The family’s maid came upon her in the kitchen and notified authorities, who arrested her on charges of trespassing. Archer pleaded no contest to the charge on Monday.
The restraining order will keep Archer from coming within 150 feet of the entire Smith family. Meanwhile, Jada Pinkett Smith has not commented on the intruder but spoke recently about how important her family is to her, saying she won’t take on a project unless she knows they are taken care of first.
”My family is my priority. If my family is stable and everyone has what they need, then I look at a way to fit in a creative endeavour. There is no one way to do it! A woman needs to be deeply connected to herself and her family, and she has got to trust herself. It’s about staying present and adjusting the formula which comes in a million forms. Trust takes courage–happiness takes courage; it’s not easy!” Smith said.
Jada seems like a woman you wouldn’t want to mess with, especially when it comes to her children. She recently told Haute Living that her strength sometimes hinders her when it comes to roles, because she doesn’t know how to play a woman who isn’t strong.
“People tell me that I always play strong women. In all honestly that is probably where I am restricted in my creative pursuits. I have no idea how not to be strong, and I don’t know if I have the desire to. I tend to gravitate towards strength energy lines,” Jada Pinkett Smith said.
