Wednesday, May 7, 2014 4:00PM
Less than 24 hours after the Internet went crazy over a photo of 13-year-old singer Willow Smith and 20-year-old Moisés Arias posed intimately, new reports claim the Smith family are not freaking out.
According to reports, sources close to movie icon Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith claim they are not upset.
Sources connected to the Smith family tell TMZ ... 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. Will and Jada view the now-famous photo of Willow in bed with 20-year-old "Hannah Montana" star Moises Arias as innocent fun ... an expression of art. The Smith's have known Moises for years, and he's best friends with 15-year-old Jaden. Bottom line ... Will and Jada have NO issue with the pic. (TMZ)
A shot of the 13-year-old and Arias started to make its rounds online last night (May 6).
Will Smith's 13-year-old daughter took a pic in bed that's raising a lot of eyebrows ... because she's laying next to a topless 20-year-old man. In the photo ... Willow Smith is in bed -- fully clothed and on top of the covers -- and an actor named Moises Arias is sitting next to her sans shirt. Moises -- best known for his role as Rico on "Hannah Montana" -- and Willow don't appear to be touching each other in the black and white shot he posted on Instagram ... still it's a strange scene. (TMZ)
Despite trying to delete the evidence, the photo still made its way across the Internet.
Moises eventually deleted his IG post -- but other people have reposted it and called the image perverted. It appears the pic was taken by Moises and Willow's friend ... who posted the bed photo and several others of Willow, Jaden Smith and the Jenner girls. We've reached out to Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's reps to find out what's going on -- but haven't heard anything back yet. (TMZ)
The duo have spent various outings together including a recent stop at annual music festival Coachella.
This isn't the first photo of the two together, just take a look at Moisés' Instagram. The Hannah Montana actor has several shots of Willow, her brother Jaden and even the Jenner girls. The whole clan also partied together at Coachella. Arias seems to be somewhat of a budding photographer and has many artistic shots of all his friends...not just Willow. (Hip Hollywood)
