Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith weren’t concerned over the recent online picture of their 13-year-old daughter laying on a bed with Moises Arias, who is 20. While they considered it nothing to be alarmed about, child protection services thought otherwise and have opened an investigation into the incident, according to Gawker on May 21.
Jada Pinkett-Smith wasn’t happy about being asked questions about the picture earlier this month. She got angry and defended the picture saying that there was “nothing sexual about that picture or that situation.”
Many people differed with Jada’s analysis of the photo, as the 20-year-old was shirtless in bed with 13-year-old Willow, who was laying down close to him. It is believed that the photo was taken during the Coachella festival in Indio, California, which was a full weekend of events.
This brings up another avenue of investigation for child protective services, they want to know about the adult supervision for Willow during that weekend. They not only plan to talk to Will and Jada, but to Willow and Moises too.
While Will and Jada aren’t happy about the child protective services getting involved, they understand it’s their job and they will be cooperating with that department, according to sources. This investigation won’t entail just a onetime visit, the plan is to thoroughly investigate how the kids are supervised by adults, reports AZ Central.
Will and Jada also have a son, Jaden, who is 15-years-old. The infamous Willow photo went viral at the beginning of the month and for a little while, there was no comment offered from either Will or Jada.
When they finally did address the uproar over the picture they stood together on the subject denying that there wasn't anything inappropriate about the picture of Willow and Moises.
Moises is Willow’s brother’s best friend, and while Moises is only five years older than Jaden, 20 represents a big age difference compared to a kid of 15. If they were 20 and 25 then that would be much different, but a man at 20 has much different interests and freedoms than a boy of 15.
It could be that the kids are just growing up too fast? Maybe Jada and Will totally trust their kids to make the right choices. While the picture of Willow was disturbing, the circumstances around the picture are unknown.
This could have been taken with the whole family in the room taking a break from the Coachella festivities. If you picture Will, Jada, and Jaden sitting in the room along with Willow and Moses watching TV, then this is just a snapshot out of context! But, no one knows what that context is today and that is where the child services come into play!
