Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s daughter Willow Smith has come out as polyamorous.
The 20-year-old made the revelation on Wednesday while on an episode of her mum’s Facebook show Red Table Talk.
She discussed that she was polyamorous when speaking with her mother and grandmother but added that she could not see herself “going past two partners”.
Willow explained: “With polyamory, I feel like the main foundation is the freedom to be able to create a relationship style that works for you and not just stepping into monogamy because that's what everyone around you says is the right thing to do.
“So I was like, how can I structure the way that I approach relationships with that in mind? Also, doing research into polyamory, the main reasons why monogamous relationships – or why marriage – why divorces happen is infidelity.”
Willow’s grandmother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris pushed back against her granddaughter saying: “For somebody like me, it feels like it's really all just centered around sex.”

Willow then gave an example of a couple who might have different sexual appetites.
She reasoned: “Are you gonna be the person to say, you know: ‘Just because I don't have these needs, you can't have them either?’
“And so that's kind of one of the reasons why I actually was interested in poly because I was introduced to it through kind of a nonsexual lens. In my friend group, I'm the only polyamorous person, and I have the least sex out of all of my friends.”

Willow added that the “history of marriage really irks me”.
Her mum Jada was supportive of her decision saying: “I'm okay with whatever you do.”
"When you were like, ‘Hey, this is my get down.’ I was like, ‘I totally get it.’
“Wanting to set up your life in a way that you can have what it is that you want, I think anything goes as long as the intentions are clear.”

Willow had previously come out as bisexual and polyfidelitous (a form of non-monogamy) on her weekly Facebook Watch series two years ago.
She said: “'I love men and women equally and so I would definitely want one man, one woman,' the Calabasas native said at the time.
“I feel like I could be polyfidelitous with those two people. I'm not the kind of person that is constantly looking for new sexual experiences.
“I focus a lot on the emotional connection and I feel like if I were to find two people of the different genders that I really connected with and we had a romantic and sexual connection, I don't feel like I would feel the need to try to go find more.”
