Daughter of American actors and producers, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow, has come out as a polyamorous.
Polyamory is the practice of engaging in multiple romantic relationships, with the consent of all the people involved.
Willow disclosed this to her mum and grandmother on The Red Table Talk show.
The 20-year-old, however, noted that she can’t see herself going past two partners.
She said: “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, who practices ethical non-monogamy, received support from her mother, but was met with resistance from her grandmother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, who said it feels like it’s really all just centered around sex.
However, Willow tried to explain things to her grandmother by giving her an example of a couple who might have opposite appetites for sex.
She said: “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 also added that the history of marriage really irritates her.
