Will Smith may be one of Hollywood’s hippest and coolest dads, but when it comes to his daughter, Willow, well, he’s an old-fashioned papa. According to reports, Smith has apparently banned Willow from dating until she’s middle-aged.
In a new video report floating around the Web, Smith apparently told reporters that his superstar daughter isn’t allowed to date until she’s 40.
“When Willow does bring a boy home, I’m going to screen him and find out everything about him,” Smith stated. “And that’s going to happen when she’s 40, when she’s allowed to go on dates!”
And even when the 11-year-old does date, Smith is still going to do background checks on her beaus.
However, Smith may have a hard time enforcing that ban in the coming years. Willow has already confessed her love for Odd Future’s wild frontman, Tyler The Creator. And the “Whip My Hair” singer is poised to be Hollywood’s next P.Y.T.
Though Smith was apparently joking, well, at least to some degree, it’s commendable that he’s invested in protecting his daughter. And something tells us, with Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s guidance, Willow’s going to avoid any boy trouble or scandals when she gets older.
