Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s child protective services update

2005 BET Awards - Show

After a month of scrutiny and controversy, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have been cleared by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services. According to Radar Online, the superstar couple won’t be facing any charges following the public fallout from a photo of their daughter.


In April, the Smith’s 13-year-old daughter, Willow, was featured in a photo lying across a bed with shirtless 20-year-old actor, Moises Arias.


A backlash immediately followed after Arias posted the image on Instagram. Someone reportedly notified DCFS concerning “the welfare and safety of Willow, based on the contents of the photo”; and the agency soon announced its investigation.

But DCFS reportedly found no wrongdoing or danger to the teen.


“”No evidence presented that Willow has ever been in any danger around Moises or that she has ever been physically or emotionally abused,” a spokesperson for DCFS told Radar Online.

DCFS did, however, recommend that Will and Jada monitor their children’s social media accounts more closely.
