Jada Pinkett Smith says 'there's nothing sexual about' Willow's controversial pictureThe web erupted with concern on Wednesday after Willow Smith, 13, was seen lying on a bed next to her shirtless, 20-year-old male friend, Moisés Arias, in a photograph on the actor's Tumblr page. Given Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith's low-key parenting style, it should come as no surprise that Jada saw the picture in a very different light from critics."Here's the deal: there was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation," she told a paparazzo (via E!) after the hubbub. "You guys are projecting your trash onto it, and you're acting like covert pedophiles, and that's not cool."For his part, Arias apparently agrees. A source close to the Smith family tells GossipCop that Willow is "like a little sister" to Arias, who finds the notion that anything else is going on "laughable" and "disgustin."The furor over whether Willow was in harm's way doesn't seem to have phased the young singer's brother, either. Jaden, 15, who is also friends with the 20-year-old Arias, was spotted going out to dinner with the older actor later that evening.
