Today’s “WTH” moment is brought to you by the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services and Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. Earlier this month, a picture of 13-year-old Willow Smith circulated the internet showing her casually lying in bed with shirtless friend, 20-year-old actor Moises Arias. Making the social media rounds, there were critics suggesting a deeper relationship between the two. Mama Jada fired back.
“Here’s the deal,” she said on May 7. “There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation. You guys are projecting your trash onto it. You’re acting like covert pedophiles and that’s not cool.”
Well, Jada can now add the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services to the list of folks she feels are behaving like “covert pedophiles.” According to RadarOnline.com, an insider advised the outlet of a formal investigation that was opened last week.
“The investigation was formally opened last week and is being taken very seriously by the department,” an insider told RadarOnline.com. “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 added, “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.”
