“I get bored and I start to eat,” Will explained while adding that he’s a “grazer” when it comes to food.
Then Jada opened up about the “intervention” they staged because they were “really nervous” about Jaden’s eating habits.
“Will and I had a bit of an intervention with Jaden because he’s a vegan now, but we realized he wasn’t getting enough protein,” the “Girls Trip” star explained. “So he was wasting away. He just looked drained, he was just depleted, he wasn’t getting the nutrients.”
“There was even a little grayness to his skin,” Will added. We got really nervous. But you’re definitely looking better now.”
“I also just wanna say that I’m vegetarian, that I’ve tried to be vegan,” Jaden responded. “I’m vegetarian, you know, I’ve tried to eat vegan meals. I’ll go vegan for a week or so but for the past year I’ve been vegetarian.”
“I was just eating like two meals a day…maybe one,” he added. “Maybe just that one big meal and I’m like, ‘Oh, you know, I didn’t get around to it.'”
