Will Smith and his wife Jada-Pinkett Smith are reportedly under investigation by the Los Angeles Department of Children And Family Services.
This comes as a result of a picture of their daughter Willow which was posted to a social media page.
The shot, shown above, shows the 13-year-old with her ‘friend’ Moises Arias, who is 20-years-old. He is a fellow child star, well-known for his stint on Hannah Montana.
Although the Smiths found nothing wrong with the picture, authorities seem to disagree. They are exercising an abundance of caution in the matter. Their investigation is expected to last at least a month and the Smiths have been cooperative thus far.
Willow made this statement about her photo to TMZ:
“Here’s the deal. There was nothing sexual about that picture of that situation. You guys are projecting your trash onto it … and your acting like covert paedophiles and that’s not cool.”
The bubble of Hollywood seems to become more and more obscure as time goes on. In the real world, it’s not normal for a 13-year-old girl to be hanging out with a 20-year-old boy whether it’s platonic or not. And lets be clear about something – a 20-year-old man has no intentions with a 13-year-old girl that are strictly platonic.
At that age, a seven year age gap is huge in terms of maturity levels, hormone levels and many other important factors. Normal parents would not even begin to consider allowing their 13-year-old daughter to hang out in their room, on their bed, unsupervised with a shirtless 20-year-old boy. Inappropriate on all levels.
This behavior may be more understandable when you hear about the Smith’s parenting style. Will said on that subject:
“We don’t do punishment. The way that we deal with our kids is, they are responsible for their lives. Our concept is, as young as possible, give them as much control over their lives as possible and the concept of punishment, our experience has been – it has a little too much of a negative quality. You can do anything you want as long as you can explain to me why that was the right thing to do for your life.”
Does this statement, dripping in liberalism, not make you just a little bit sick? They are doing their children a tremendous disservice by adopting such a lackadaisical attitude like a couple of drugged out hippies.
