Willow Smith’s famous mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, is now responding to the controversial photo posted this week of her 13-year-old daughter lying in bed with 20-year-old actor Moises Arias.
Although calls to her rep went unanswered, TMZ got her to speak on it as she arrived at LAX on Wednesday.
"Here's the deal: there was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation," she said. "You guys are projecting your trash onto it, and you're acting like covert pedophiles, and that's not cool."
E! Online notes Arias, a former Hannah Montana star, is good friends with Pinkett Smith and Will Smith’s other son, Jaden Smith. The two were seen having dinner in Calabasas, Calif. on Tuesday, at Sugarfish Sushi.
The photo was originally posted by Arias, but he quickly took it down from his Instagram page after the backlash ensued.
Also featured on his page are multiple pictures of Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Jaden and Kylie have been linked romantically in the past, although they often deny they’re a couple.
