Jada Smith has reacted to a photograph her daughter Willow, aged 13, took whilst on a bed with a 20-year-old actor. The image was posted on actor Moises Arias’ Instagram account and showed Willow lying fully clothed on a bed whilst a shirtless Moises held a pillow behind his head whilst leaning on a wall.

Willow Smith
Willow Smith caused a minor scandal last week when Moises Arias posted a picture of the two on a bed.

Jada spoke to photographers awaiting her arrival at LAX. As TMZ reports, Jada said she was furious with the response from the press which has implied there was a sexual element to the picture. She said “There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation. You guys are projecting your trash onto it, and you’re acting like covert paedophiles, and that’s not cool.”

Jada Pinkett-Smith Willow Smith

While the internet is still in a twist about Willow Smiths recent photo with a 20-year-old actor – he’s shirtless, they’re both lounging on a bed, so naturally, the controversy rages on – Jada Pinkett-Smith just doesn’t see what all the fuss is about. TMZ recently caught up with 13-year-old Willow Smith’s mother, and she had something to say about anyone suggesting that the picture was sexual.

Will And Jada Pinkett-Smith Step Up To Defend Willow's Questionable Instagram Shot With 20-Year-Old Actor


Willow Smith Moises Arias Will Smith Jada Pinkett-Smith

After a picture of 13-year-old Willow Smith, lounging on a bed next to 20-year-old actor Moises Arias hit the web, gossip blogs practically exploded. Speculation is rampant on what the relationship between the two is and whether or not it’s appropriate for the Whip My Hair performer to pose in such a suggestive manner at her age. As far as Willow’s parents – Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith – are concerned, she hasn’t done anything out of line. According to the ever trustworthy anonymous “sources” for TMZ, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith believe their daughter is "very mature" - enough so to make her own decisions, as long as they don't clearly cross the line.

Willow Smith
Willow might be very mature for her age... but she's still only 13.

Apparently Willow’s folks view the photo as “harmless fun” and “an expression of art.”
