Willow Smith, 13, was seen lying in bed with a shirtless Moises Arias, a 20-year-old actor, in a recent Instagram photo, and the picture has sparked controversy across social media sites and media outlets alike. However, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, the girl's parents, are apparently unfazed by the picture and trust her to make her own decisions.
Moises Arias, known for his time on "Hannah Montana" as Rico and his recent role in "Ender's Game" as Bonito de Madrid, or Bonzo. Arias has been friends with Jaden, the Smiths' 15-year-old son, for years, so they don't see a problem with the risqué black and white shot.
"Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith believe their daughter is 'very mature' ... enough so to make her own decisions, as long as they don't clearly cross the line," a source told TMZ. "Bottom line … Will and Jada have NO issue with the pic."
Willow Smith is seen in the photo fully clothed and laying on top of the covers while Arias, is shirtless and seemingly under the covers next to her. The pictures originally were found on a Tumblr page, but once Arias posted them on his personal Instagram account, the speculation began.
The controversy prompted Arias to delete the picture from his Instagram account, especially after some of his followers repeatedly called the picture "perverted." Others, though, defended the shot, pointing out that Arias and Willow's older brother Jaden Smith have been friends for some time. In addition, there are shirtless pictures of Jaden on the Tumblr account along with shots of Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
The pictures were apparently taken in Calabasas, California at Coachella earlier this year, with the photo of Smith and Arias taken by a friend.
