In the most recent episode of the Facebook web series Red Table Talk, 18-year-old Willow Smith, the daughter of actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, came out as bisexual. Her mother also admitted that she and her husband are in a non-sexual throuple with another woman.
In the series, members of the Smith family and guests discuss “controversial topics.” The latest episode was entitled “Unconventional Relationships: Can Multiple Partners Work?” While discussing the topic, Willow told her mother Jada and her grandmother Adrienne:
“I love men and women equally, and so I would definitely want one man, one woman. 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 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.”
What’s cool is that Jada responded to the news by admitting that her stomach jumped a bit, and added, “Listen, you know me Willow: whatever makes you happy.”
Jada also said that she and Will have been involved for years in a non-sexual throuple with Will’s ex-wife, Sheree Zampino.
Perhaps we should’ve seen this coming as Willow’s 2013 music video, “Summer Fling,” gave us some bi vibes. The video showed her pining after a boy and also featured a brief shot of a female same-sex couple holding hands and staring into each other’s eyes.
