Child Protective Services have concluded their investigation on Will Smith and Jada Pinkett. The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services began investigating the A-List couple last month after their daughter Willow posted a controversial photo on Instagram. The photo captured the 13-year-old in bed with shirtless 20-year-old actor Moises Arias.
The photo quickly sparked controversy and debate. Media reports and headlines all questioned its appropriateness. An anonymous tip “about the welfare and safety of Willow based on the contents of the photo” to the agency lead to the investigation.
DCFS has concluded the investigation and found that “no evidence presented that Willow has ever been in any danger around Moises, or that she has ever been physically or emotionally abused.” They even reported that the “Whip My Hair” singer is “a very well adjusted, smart, and articulate young lady.” However, DCFS did advise Will and Jada to monitor their children’s social media accounts more carefully.
Jada did not hold anything back when paparazzi grilled her on the top last month. She insisted there was nothing sexual about the photo and that the two were just friends. “You guys are projecting your trash onto it, and you’re acting like covert pedophiles, and that’s not cool,” she added.
They may have not been anything sexual between Willow or Moises but the pic was definitely suggestive. And no matter how innocent, a 20-year-old man in bed with a 13-year-old will always raise a few eyebrows. Have celebrities learned nothing from all of the Michael Jackson allegations?
