“We messed up,” she admitted to hosts Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith, and Adrienne Banfield-Norris.

“I just want a second chance to be like, ‘I recognize I messed up.’ I never got to say ‘I’m really sorry that this happened,’ or, ‘I really own that this was a big mess-up on everybody’s part,’ but I think everybody feels that way in my family right now.”
