Willow Smith’s latest Instagram photo has caused quite a stir. The daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith was pictured in bed with a shirtless actor named Moises Arias. Arias is 20 years old, while Willow Smith is just 13.
Willow Smith is fully clothed in the photo, and Moises Arias is not touching her in an inappropriate way. Instead, she is just lying next to his arm and looking off towards the camera. Arias, meanwhile, is sitting up with his shirtless back against the wall.
Moises Arias, best known as Rico on Hannah Montana, apparently posted the controversial Willlow Smith photo on his Instagram page. He later took it down, but others continued to share the image on social media.
The Willow Smith Instagram photo in question was apparently part of a larger set of images taken during the recent Coachella music festival. Willow’s brother Jaden also appears in some of the pictures, as do Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
Many believe that Willow Smith is too young to be posing with a naked man like Moises Arias. Others wondered why the young adults were allowed at the often wild festival without parental supervision.
But this is not the first time Will and Jada’s daughter has pushed boundaries with her behavior. Last summer, many criticized the tween’s “Summer Fling” video as inappropriate for someone her age.
“The video is called ‘Summer Fling,’ but it might just as well be called ‘Lolita,’” psychiatrist Carole Lieberman told Today. “It’s outrageous. … There’s nothing innocent about this video. It’s clearly about sex. I don't know what Willow’s parents were thinking.”

Even when she was just a kid, Willow Smith raised eyebrows with her controversial style. In 2010, the then-9-year-old wore a leopard print outfit to the Karate Kid premiere. At least one website thought the star looked twice her age at the event.
