Incase you missed it, social media has been in a bit of a frenzy with a new photo of 13 year old singer/actress Willow Smith laying in bed with 20 year old actor Moises Arias, who is most well known for his role as Rico on Hannah Montana. Arias is shown topless and sitting up against a wall while the two are not touching, TMZ reports, many news outlets that have obtained the photo are calling it “perverted” why? Because although the two aren’t doing anything, Willow is a minor. The photo has since been removed from the actor’s Tumblr and Instagram accounts. US Weekly reports, Arias is also good friends with Willow’s brother Jaden, along with Jaden’s on-again-off-again girlfriend Kylie and her sister Kendall Jenner.
The real question is, how do the 13 year olds parents, aka Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith feel about the photo? Willow’s mother, Jada, actually defended her daughter to TMZ saying that “there is nothing sexual about the photo” and continues by stating, ” you guys are just projecting your filth into it, you’re acting like covert perverts and thats not cool”.
On professional note, Willow has been MIA for while, and lat year she turned down the title role in the remake of Annie. Her famous father tells the story as it was her decision, stating that she looked him the face and said ‘Daddy I have a better idea, how about I just be 12. ” The actor also stated, “”I’m really learning through Willow the necessity that we have to snap ourselves back and refocus on the emotional needs of the people that we love,” via US Weekly. So, we have to ask, who do you agree with? The media or her parents? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
