Jada Pinkett-Smith has come to the defense of her young daughter, Willow Smith.
The 13-year-old raised eyebrows this week when photos were shared of her lying in bed with shirtless 20-year-old actor, Moises Arias.
Due to the suggestive nature of the shots, rumors swirled that the pair, who are seven years apart in age, were engaging in an inappropriate relationship, but Pinkett-Smith insists that’s not the case.
“Here’s the deal,” she told the paparazzi via TMZ Wednesday at LAX Airport.
“There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation.”
“You guys are projecting your trash onto it,” she continued.
“You’re acting like covert pedophiles and that’s not cool.”Arias has since deleted the black and white images he uploaded of the two from hisTumblr and Instagram. According to the gossip site’s sources, famous father Will Smith also has an opinion. He believes his daughter is “very mature” and old enough to make her own deicisions.Smith’s parents think the photo was an artistic expression and innocent fun
