Will and Jada under investigation by Child Protective Services

By  |  72 Comments


Apparently, that seemingly “innocent” picture of Willow Smith in bed with a 20-year old didn’t fly over so well with everyone.  RadarOnline is reporting that the image has not only led to criticism on-line of Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith’s parenting skills, it has also gotten attention from the authorities.   Radar is also reporting that the couple is now under investigation by The Department of Children and Family Services as a result of the image appearing in public.

“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 also stated that Willow will be one of the subjects of the interview, since the 13-year old is going to be expected to explain why she was in bed with a topless 20-year old.  They are also going to speak with the parents to find out what might have been going on.

“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,” the source stated.

The older man in bed with Willow is 20-year old actor Moises Arias.  The image appeared on his twitter page and was removed shortly thereafter.   Arias is best-known for his role on “Hannah Montana.”

Jada, when caught at the airport by TMZ, went after the media for making something out of what she considers to be nothing.

“Here’s the deal,” she said. “There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation. You guys are projecting your trash onto it. You’re acting like covert pedοphiles and that’s not cool.”

So Jada, you may think that the public is to blame here, but they’re not the ones under investigation, are they?  Also, we ask:  Would they be investigating Will and Jada if they weren’t celebrities?  Most of us believe that celebs get a free pass, but there are some situations where they might receive more scrutiny than others.

Then, there is the bigger question:  Some people say that they might be getting investigated because they are black.   A few of our readers even believe that the reason the media covered the image so much was because the family is black.   They’ve even accused of us racism for talking about it.  Is that a possibility or are people just protecting Will and Jada because they are beloved celebs?  At this point, no one really knows what was going on in that picture between Willow and Moises, but it just doesn’t seem right.

    It’s about time. Rich or not, these kids have too much freedom. If the so-called parents can’t do their job, then the state will. Maybe she can quit blaming everyone else for their failure to be parents and not friends to these kids.

      I agree. It doesn’t matter who they are. If it had been a less fortunate couple. People would be demanding the picture be investigated. I personally don’t feel they are targeted.

        Targeted or not, where was CPS, when Jaden stated in an interview at 10 yrs.old, that his father drops his pants, in public anywhere
        Children are sexualized in their homes every day, adults look the other way, as usual CPS shows up after the fact.

    These people are actors. The picture was just an act. Unless there was nudity (a shirtless man is not nudity) or sexual contact, the government should keep its f***ing nose out of it.

      If it was your child, how would you feel about it? I wouldn’t want my 13 year old daughter in bed fully clothed with a/any man. Maybe you need to interview some children that have been molested. (not saying this is what happened.)I work with women like this everyday and it sometimes start off very innocent and then that one person come along and its not innocent anymore. Just saying!!

    I don’t know if they should be investigated but I do know that no 13 years old should be in a bed with a 20 years old unless they are making a commerical. Will & Jada have always allowed those children to do as they please and they were never treated as childredn they have always been treated as adults. The oldest child was raised by his Mom and you can see the different in Jada children and him. He is more normal. Willow always appear to be hurting inside and she may have many mental issues. Will & Jada need to get their parenting skills together and attempt to try to raise Willow the next five years. Let her be a child.

    WTF… really ppl! This is a 13 year old child laying up with an adult and you guys think just because Will and Jada got money they are somehow suppose to be exempt from the law. That is the problem with ppl who have $ believe they are privileged and can do wtf they want. If it had been an everyday normal citizen, Willow would have been snatched out of the home and put in foster care until the investigation is cleared and someone gets charged. It is really sad to hear that ppl that have commented seems to think that it is ok for a 13yr old and a 20yr should be in such a compromising situation(sex or no sex… wtf are you even doing in his presence laying up) This world is too desensitized! There is a problem here and someone should be charged!

    This is an actor. It is amazing that a fully dressed 13 year old actor and a shirtless 20 year old actor would get all of you riled up, but a photo of a baby and a real bear wouldn’t ring any alarms. You’re to busy in other people’s business. The most ridiculous part of this whole thing is that some of you talk about this as if your know these people and have actually witnessed their lifestyle and parenting skills. Someone asked if it would be ok if the child were mine, to that I say this, it depends on what the ad or the message was. I would be on set and in the editing room, and for the right situation, yes it would be ok. I’d certainly prefer that picture over a photo of her pretending to be dead with a 6 year old sitting on the bed with her holding a smoking gun. Get a grip people and even more than that, get a freakin’ life. Good lord!

    When I was 13 I had BETTER NOT been in the bedroom with my brother’s friend more or less on the same bed. Not only would my parents have an issue but my Brothers would have kicked my butt and threw me out the room……period.
    Despite what Will and Jada thinks children ALWAYS need guidance.

    Whether or not we agree with their parental skills or not, there is something that is not quite right in this situation. I would never want to judge someone, but that family appears to be a sham. They make it seem like they are enlightened parents but, their children seem way to grown. I think they know something we don’t. (The kids, I mean)

Do they go to church? What is their point of reference? Movie scripts?…Designer clothes? Black, white, brown, light-skin…whatever…your 13 year old daughter should not be in a bed with a 20 year old man…I do not care that he used to be on Hannah Montana…I do nor care if Mr. and Mrs. Smith and brother Jaden were in the room working the camera…it should not have happened and it should not happen until she is of age…emancipated minors I know exactly what that is about…visit Covenant House…

    On the surface, protective services can launch a investigate for a lot less.

    No this is not racist, and we need to stop tossing that word out any time we disagree or agree for that matter if inciolves a black person. If you don’t have all the facts then it’s an educated judgmental opinion, like my opinion. Not racist!

    Here’s a question. Why does this site “beep” out the word sex, and also all references to genitalia or sexual behavior? What’s wrong with sex? It seems juvenile to censor plain English in this fashion.

      Because Boyce Watson and other sites like this sold their soul to the Masters at Google for #1 listing on the internet. I don’t see sites run by whites with any form of censorship.

      YT is letting Boyce and others know who is the boss and it ain’t them.

      I have seen the following words censored and they are the topic of discussion.

      b-l-o-o-d, b-l-o-o-d-y
      d-e-a-t-h, d-y-i-n-g
      p-e-n-i-s and this was an actual topic
      v-a-g-i-n-a and that word was another subject as well.
      that time of the month.

    I love Jada and Will as actors, they have always had great roles and seem to be very secluded from media at first. Now allowing their daughter to be photographed with a young man thwt is shirtless is insane. Someone said in another post her parents would have never allowed something like this and neither would her brothers. That was how I was rasied, if it was a non celebrity child yes cps would have stepped in, and took the child out of the home. I’m not here to judge them, or say they are bad parents, but from a real mothers perspective, my daughter would have not been allowed to be photographed with a 20 year old young man or any man for that matter. All I can say is as a concerned parent your baby is st7ll a baby in my eyes and need guidance, she is not the decision maker and it is not okay.

    Willow is one of my favorite singer’s and I like how she gets freedom to express her moods through hair styles & clothes..nevertheless I have two answers for this case, its either they dating or its a cast picture!

    • Prayers are needed

      May 21, 2014 at 2:09 pm

      A cast picture, for what, Child molestation! There is enough porno out there.

      What on Earth, could Jada and Will think, to even let their 13 daughter play any sexual role, unless it is about sexual violence.and even then, it would be heavily monitored.

      Sorry, there is no excuse for this one.
      The fact that it was removed immediately, leads one to think both the young man and Willow, knew better.

      Willow, although seemingly sophisticated, is still a minor!

      I supported Jada when she let Willow cut her hair,
      I did not support the Smiths, when they allowed their 15 year old son to have his own apartment.

      Rich or famous,poor or unknown, this is unacceptable.

      Seems to me, they are wanting her to grow up too Fast!

      I wonder what do the parents of Willow and Jayden’friends think.
      Are they just as extreme.
      Yes, this is Hollywood, but still, how could Jada even respond the way she did, when she is an advocate against sexual exploitation of young children and teenagers.

      SHAME on You Jada, I do not support you on this!!

    • Prayers are needed

      May 21, 2014 at 2:24 pm

      Even, if the Smith’s allow their daughter to date a 20 year old, there is a great difference in age,13-20.
      Perhaps, when Willow is 20 or 21, but not at the age of 13.
      I pray for both of the Smith’s children.
      I love both Will, Jada, Jayden and Willow as actors, but that picture was not acting.
      I think the Smith’s need parenting classes and supervision themselves; before their children are the victims of far more than the media.
      I dare say, Jada did not know that her 13 year old, was in bed with a 20 year old.
      In some states, that is considered neglect and possible harm to a minor/juvenile.
      I know, I wrote much on this, but No, this is not acceptable, regardless of who the parents are.

      I pray for this family.
      Jada, is losing respect. Maybe Will also.

      • Prayers are needed

        May 21, 2014 at 2:56 pm

        I know, I wrote much on this, but it angers me, that Jada, has let her children, especially her daughter, have too much unsupervised freedom.
        From the time, those children were born, Jada has had an extreme way of parenting.
        For the most part, we have accepted her, as being Jada, but lately, she seems to be losing ground in her parenting arena.
        I do not read too much about Will, and for the most part, he seems to be the level-headed parent;although, he has said some weird comments through the years.

        I am sure every concerned parent, is asking, what is wrong with The Smith’s.
        We know they live in a glamourous world and most of these children, are perhaps exposed to more than an average teenager.
        On the other hand, too many teenagers are being raised without supervision.

        I read an article about how Jada’s mother raised her to be a strong, independent woman. That seems to be the path she wants for Willow;but Willow, actually appears to be a child, who is trying to emulate her mother, or get her “mother’s attention”.

        Also, Jada, seems to be in competition for her daughter.

        She has admitted, that she had to grow up tough, but her daughter does not live that life, or does she?

        Jada and Will, I do not want to lose my respect for you; but you need to get a grip on your children, or your images will be disrespected.

        Jada, was again in the airport. Who supervises her children, when she is away.
        Perhaps, her mother is needed to be there for her granddaughter.
        I pray for this little teenager.
        Yes, I am angry.

    I feel sorry for people of African decent. you live in this world, but don’t understand the ways of how you should live your life. You don’t know who you are; because if you did you would not want to be and act like the earthly races who is living in sin. You truly believe because your Masters said it is ok for you to accepts those beliefs. It is not rights. Black,Negro, Color and African American men and women, ratio of 5 to 1 only 24 % of you know how to reasons what is right for you and your children. Look at the condition in your community. My question to my people. What make it right for a 13 years baby to pose and lye in a bed with an adult?

      You seem to be confused about who you are. It appears you start off addressing African Americas as if you are not of the race but then you make comments as if you are and then conclude near the end with, “my people”. Despite the race, economical status, or the community in which you reside I think we can all conquer that this scene was inappropriate and improper.

    From what I’ve seen, I believe that Will Smith and Jada are very good parents. That photograph is only “suggestive” in the minds of people who seek to see something suggestive in it. I don’t believe for one moment that there was anything sexual relating to that photograph and in any case, it’s NONE OF OUR DAMN BUSINESS.

    I was just discussing this topic with my significant other this morning and although child molestation is very prevelant in this society the picture did not depict any signs of it to me. I will say that it may seem inappropriate at first glance but as celebrities the rules tend to be different in regards to public relations. I believe this was a publicity stunt for an up and coming art piece and the family was ill advised. I can not believe that any parent would willingly put their child in harms way. Yes I believe you can trust an adult with your minors and get betrayed. The way around that is to create the communication that will allow the children to inform their parents. That’s the goal I believe Will and Jada are looking for and hopefully it works in their favor both the parents and the children. The old fashioned upbringing sends kids the message that what adults say is always right and you must listen to them. Will and Jada’s way tells their children they have a say too. Remember there is no manual for getting it right but like many of us I am sure they are using their upbringing to guide them and even that’s not fool proof. I have witnessed a situation where a father touched his daughter once. She raised her children to be open and share their concerns with her. Surprisingly this woman’s daughter just shared with her that her grand father had been continuosly molesting her from a very early age until recently. The daughter is now in her late twenties and since then he has demised. Imagine the sense of betrayal of the daughter’s mother who not only was not able to protect her daughter but she respected and shared her family with her father. The daughter’s reason for never sharing was that when another female cousin claimed he touched them the family didn’t believe her and she was alienated. Of course who could ever believe that a grand father could do such a thing. Could you imagine the daughter’s feeling when her daughter shared that story. Had she been informed of the cousin’s situation she would’ve known she was telling the truth because he did it to her. The daughter says that his latest episode was when he was visiting the family and she greeted him he grazed her breast. He has since demised without ever appologizing to his daughter or grand daughter. I shared that with permission from the person involved and to make people aware that no one can ever know the history behind people’s parenting styles and/or family life. You can only hope to get it right.

    You know all this stuff about Will & Jada “letting their kids make their own decisions”?

    That’s standard Scientology parenting technique; Kids are millennia-old beings (‘thetans’) in young bodies, and should be treated as such.. You can bet that Willow and Jaden have been on the E-Meter from an early age (might explain some of the wierdness – Have you *seen* Jaden’s Twitter feed recently?)

    It is scary to me that so many people are so ignorant. Willow was fully dressed on a bed not in the bed. The guy was sitting at the end of a bed by the window with his shirt off as though it was hot. He is not a stranger but a family friend. We don’t know who else was in the room, maybe even the parents and/or many others. How many times have you been in a room where adults and children were relaxing together enjoying time together. There could be many explanations for the situation. But people rather go down the most negative trail. More a reflection of you than of Will and Jada, Willow and Jaden. People aren’t even giving Will and Jada a chance to respond with their side. Smh

    What really scares me is how easily people are influenced by what they hear and see in the media or the lie machines. People speak about these media stories as though everything they see or hear is true. Smh no critical thinking is going on today, just robotic repeating of what you are told by the media…word for word. Sad times we are living in. People acting against their own interest and against their own freedoms. Walking towards the cliff and will voluntarily step off the edge because of lack of ability to think for themselves. Think about where you are getting your info and what the agenda of the source is. Then decide if you are going to be a free worker for them by repeating their stories as though they are truths and participating in destroying peoples lives who are innocent. There are people who despise this powerful black family and would like to see them destroyed. Are you enjoying helping them? Sad and scary!

    @LilNaNa: There is nothing sexual going on in the picture, you’re right. But the point is, why is she in the bed with clothes on or off with a 20 year old guy? She’s 13 for goodness sakes. If it was just a random man in the bed with a little girl we would be thinking he was some type of child molester or pervert and would be screaming for his head!
    It is just not right! Why isn’t he in the bed with a chick his own age? Why for whatever reason, does she
    need to be in the bed with this man? What purpose? So what if he is a family friend! Most of the
    children who are raped/molested are violated by someone they knew. I’m sorry, but me as a mother,
    this is very inappropriate and does a grave injustice to that little girl.

    You are far to amoral and unethical in your own lives to be trying to pass judgement on someone elses!

    Use birth control females! Teach your daughters to use birth control. If you truly love them, give them a chance to finish high school and college. Let them become adults and then they are in a position to find a decent Black man. Females have no value to us when they come to us with a handful of bastard children by different men!
    HEAR ME!

    I could understand it if people were making statements or passing judgments AFTER the findings of the investigation. But people love judging so much, why wait? It doesn’t matter if there’s a story there or not. Let’s make something big out of it now. After all, truth or facts are secondary to salacious sensationalism.

    What a sad way to raise ones children. At 13yrs old that is far to young to be caught in this situation. Whats wrong with these people, oh well, in this permissive society today anything goes.
