Will Smith lends his star power to controversial author Sister Souljah as she launches her new book

Will Smith attended an event where author Sister Souljah paraded her latest work “A Deeper Love Inside:The Porsche Santiaga Story” in Philadelphia on Saturday.

The jolly Men in Black star looked thrilled to be attending the event at the Temple Performing Arts Centre as they posed together on the red carpet before the discussion event.

She was discussing her latest book A Deeper Love Inside: The Porsche Santiaga Story, a coming of age tale about a girl who is a 'natural-born hustler' which is said to be marching off the shelves.

She shot to fame after Bill Clinton criticised her remarks about race in the United States during the 1992 presidential campaign.

Following the infamous Los Angeles riots that year she said: 'If black people kill black people every day, why not have a week and kill white people?

'White people, this government and that mayor were well aware of the fact that black people were dying every day in Los Angeles under gang violence.

'So if you're a gang member and you would normally be killing somebody, why not kill a white person? Do you think that somebody thinks that white people are better, are above and beyond dying, when they would kill their own kind?'

As well as her writing, Sister, born Lisa Williamson, was also previously the executive director of Daddy's House Social Programs Inc., a non-profit corporation for urban youth financed by Diddy and Bad Boy Entertainment.

While Will was listening to Souljah, his son Jaden was fighting off the attentions of Kris Jenner as they celebrated the build up to Super Bowl Sunday together.

Awkward: While Will was attending the event his son Jaden was being accosted by Kris Jenner.


Anyone read the new book yet?
