Will, Jada Pinkett Smith under investigation regarding viral photo 

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are being investigated by the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services after a photo of their 13-year-old daughter, Willow, lying in bed with a 20-year-old friend went viral online earlier this month.

Radar Online and the Huffington Post reported Wednesday that the investigation, which began last week, is being taken seriously by the department.

A source told the website: “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,” and added that social workers will speak with Willow separately, as well as with former Disney star Moises Arias, who was in the photo — and not wearing a shirt.

Meanwhile, family matriarch Pinkett Smith brushed off controversy after the photo of Willow sparked attention, telling TMZ’s cameramen: “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.”

Smith has not commented about the image, although viral photos seem to run in the family; a photo of him helping a fan announce her pregnancy has exploded online.
