Actor Will Smith and wife, singer and actress, Jada Pinkett Smith are under investigation by the Los Angeles Department of Children And Family Services over a social media post of their 13-year-old daughter in bed with 20-year-old actor and friend Moises Arias.
“The investigation was formally opened last week and is being taken very seriously by the department,” an insider told RadarOnline.com. “Will and Jada Pinkett Smith have been extremely cooperative with officials. Of course, they aren’t happy that their parenting skills are under scrutiny, but they understand.”

The investigation stems from a photo of their 13-year-old daughter Willow lying on a bed with her friend, Moises Arias, 20, according to a report.
The controversial black and white snap, which was posted on social media, depicted former Hannah Montana actor Moises shirtless with Willow slouched, fully clothed laying in front of him.

Willow's mother Jada, defended the image on May 7, as she arrived at Los Angeles International Airport. When she lashed out to videographers and photographers, TMZ aired a video with Jada saying '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 pedophiles and that's not cool.'

RadarOnline also reports that the investigation was launched last week and that Will, 45, and Jada, 42, have been 'extremely cooperative', stating that the Los Angeles Department of Children And Family Services will also be talking separately with Willow, and they also want to talk to the young man in the picture with her as well. "This won’t just be one or two visits with the family, and it will likely be an open investigation for at least a month, out of an abundance of caution.”
