Jada Pinkett Smith is tackling the R. Kelly controversy head-on.

The 47-year-old actress is airing a special two-part episode of her hit Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk, on Friday, Jan. 11, and Monday, Jan, 14, in which she and her regular guests -- her 18-year-old daughter, Willow, and her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris -- will give their thoughts on the aftermath of the Surviving R. Kelly docuseries.

Singer R. Kelly has recently reappeared in headlines after Lifetime aired the docuseries, which featured interviews with several women who claim they were the subject of abuse and predatory behavior from him, while other interviewees claim to have witnessed inappropriate behavior between him and his then-underaged protege, the late Aaliyah.

Twitter is roasting Will Smith as the new 'Aladdin' Genie: 'Sinbad on a diet' "What could Will Smith possibly have done to deserve this?" one user tweeted.

Watching Red Table Talk is like being a fly on the wall in the Smith family home. On its newest episode, Jaden and Willow Smith sit with Pinkett - Smith said when she was growing up her mother was the authority, which was completely different from the upbringing she wanted to give her children.

Jada Pinkett Smith , mom Adrienne Banfield-Norris, daughter Willow Smith and one of Willow's friends tackled the topic even Jada admitted was conventionally "difficult" for women to talk about on Monday's episode of her Facebook talk show, " Red Table Talk ."

Kelly has long denied all allegations against him.

The Red Table Talk special will feature one of Kelly's accusers, Lisa Van Allen, as well as Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Chicago School of Medicine, Dr. Candice Norcott. Norcott will discuss the public's reaction, warning signs we all should know, survivor stories and different paths to healing.

Judging by the preview, the special already looks to be an emotional one, with Willow looking especially horrified at one point.

Join us at the Red Table for a special two-part episode this Friday and Monday where we will continue the conversations...

Jada Pinkett Smith 's Facebook Watch talkshow Red Table Talk has been getting rave reviews for its upfront and honest approach to tackling everyday topics. Smith explained that speaking with her fellow actress was "like a gorilla hopped off my back that I didn’t even know was there."

“So, I got an article this morning that R. Kelly streams have spiked substantially since the release of Surviving R. Kelly docuseries and I’m having a really difficult time understanding why,” she said. “But I think it’s important that I understand why. I really would like for you guys to help me understand what I’m missing, even if I’m missing something that I don’t necessarily agree with. I just want to understand what I’m missing.”

" ... I really don't want to believe that it's because black girls don't matter enough," she continued. "Or is that the reason? So, let me know."

A concertgoer tells ET, “R. Kelly was there for his birthday and the club was packed. More packed than usual. Everyone was having a good time, drama aside. [People] still have love for R. Kelly.”
