Will Smith And Jada Pinkett-Smith Cleared By Child Protective Services
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith have been cleared by Child Protective Services after a very public investigation by the LADCFS. The investigation came to the Smiths’ front door after Willow Smith, their 13-year-old daughter, was photographed fully clothed on a bed with a 20-year-old actor and star of Hannah Montana, Moises Arias. The photo allegedly came from the aspiring singer’s Instagram account and went viral.
After the photo made the rounds, it eventually came to the attention of the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, which started an investigation into Will and Jada and the safety of their daughter Willow. In the past, the couple was accused of unorthodox parenting due to their no punishing policy.
According to Radar Online, officials said that they didn’t find any evidence suggesting that Willow Smith was ever in danger. Therefore, they felt no need to take action against her parents Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith.
That said, the parents have been advised by the DCFS to keep an eye on their daughter Willow and her social media accounts.
Although the parents didn’t publicly comment about the investigation, Willow’s mother, Jada Pinkett-Smith came to her defense when the photo caused an initial uproar.
At the time she told TMZ:
“Here’s the deal: There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation. You guys are projecting your trash onto it and you’re acting like covert pedophiles, and that’s not cool.”
There is some validity to Pinkett’s words about the photo. While it may not be deemed as an appropriate picture by some people, there was nothing sexual in nature happening in the photo of Willow and Moises. Most of the attention was focused on Moises not having a shirt on and their location.
This isn’t the first time the Smiths had to battle the media. Over the last few years, the two publicly came forward to deny breakup rumors that stemmed from cheating allegations. They have also been very candid about the fact that past quotes have been misconstrued to imply they have an open sexual relationship. Apparently, their open relationship status is built around an open-communication policy and has nothing to do with extra-marital sex.
Either way, all of that seems to be a thing of the past. Just last week, Will and Jada were snapped in Hawaii looking very much in love with each other. As we previously reported, Willow was also present as their parents soaked up the sun and enjoyed each other’s company on the beach.
