Will Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith are under investigation by the Los Angeles Department of Children & Family Services after a picture of their 13-year-old daughter Willow in bed with actor Moises Arias, 20, surfaced.
“The investigation was formally opened last week and is being taken very seriously by the department,” an insider told Radar. “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 source revealed, “Social workers 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.”
Arias posted the photo of himself in bed with Willow on social media earlier this month. In the pic, Willow is fully clothed, while Arias is shirtless under bed sheets. Jada Pinkett-Smith passionately defended her daughter and the image when asked about it: “Here’s the deal,” Jada said on May 7. “There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation. You guys are projecting your trash onto it. You’re acting like covert pedophiles and that’s not cool.”
