"Willow made me do it because it was time to let go BUT … my 50’s are bout to be Divinely lit with this shed," the "Red Table Talk" host, who turns 50 in September, captioned her post.

Celebrities took to the comments to show their support, with Gabrielle Union commenting a series of heart and fire emojis on Pinkett Smith's post.
"Beautiful ❤️It Just shows that beautiful face and soulful eyes more prominently," wrote Tina Knowles-Lawson.
"Perfection," Lena Waithe added.
Smith also commented on her mother's picture, calling her "DIVINE."
The two have always been candid about their close mother-daughter relationship.
"My mom got so much hate,” Smith recalled. "It was intense racism and sexism, just packed on to the tens. People giving her death threats, throwing glass at her onstage. Some crazy stuff went down."
Smith's music career started at a young age when she released her debut single "Whip My Hair" at 10 years old. She said for a long time she regretted making the song and had doubts about her music, but said her memories of what her mom went through with her rock band, Wicked Wisdom, give her strength to keep creating.
"She really showed me what ‘womaning up’ really was by taking a stance and not being afraid of other people’s judgements and perceptions," the singer said. "I really wanted to just go within that place in myself and try something new, regardless of what my insecurities were."
