The investigation into the racy photo of Willow Smith and Moises Arias laying in bed together is heating up, and a new report is claiming that Child Protective Services wants to interview Moises himself.
Willow Smith, 13, and Moises Arias, 20, unknowingly sparked controversy when a photo of them laying in bed together hit the internet. In the photo, Willow is curled up next to Moises, who is shirtless — despite being seven years her senior. Now, Child Protective Services is reportedly investigating the situation and would like to interview Moises about his participation in the photo with Willow, who is a minor.
Willow Smith: Child Protective Services Wants To Interview Moises Arias
Uh oh. It sure sounds like things are getting serious in the Willow-Moises investigation by CPS.
After the agency reportedly interviewed Willow and her parents, Will Smith, 45, and Jada Pinkett-Smith, 42, they are now hoping to interview Moises since he is a subject in the controversial photo that sparked the investigation.
“Social workers would like to talk to Willow’s friend, Moises, about the photo which depicts them on the same bed together,” a source close to the investigation told Radar Online.
However, that same source revealed that Moises has the option not to get involved.
“Moises is under no obligation to talk to authorities.”
It would be a little suspicious if Moises refused to speak to CPS in regards to the investigation, especially since the Smith has been so cooperative.
After all, the CPS just wants to make sure that “there is proper adult supervision of the children in Will and Jada’s house.”
Willow & Her Parents Interviewed Twice By CPS
As mentioned above, Willow and her parents have already been interviewed by Child Protective Services after the photo went viral and put their parenting habits into question.
The first time Willow was interviewed was with her parents present, and the second time was alone. Both Will and Jada were also interviewed separately.
Before the alleged investigation began, Jada responded to the controversy when she ran into a few photographers at LAX airport on May 7.
“Here’s the deal: There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation,” Jada declared.
“You guys are projecting your trash onto it. You’re acting like covert pedophiles and that’s not cool.”
