For most individuals, being born into a celebrity family implies being born with a silver spoon in one's mouth, but Willow Smith's narrative is not so sugar-sweet. Despite the fact that her father, Will Smith, is one of the world's highest-paid actors, and her mother is a successful actress, businesswoman, and hostess, the young girl made her way onto the stage through her own talent, courage, and despite her own mistakes, which sometimes cost her a little more than she expected. Was there someone unique who could console her on a bad night?
Willow Camille Reign was born on October 31, 2000, in Los Angeles, California, to the Smith family. At the time, her father, Will Smith, was looking for a fresh project to distract him from the critical and audience failure that his most recent film, "Wild Wild West," had been. He was also working on his music career, filming music videos following music videos. Jada Pinkett Smith, his wife and Willow's mother, took a break from acting after starring in the film "Bamboozled" to spend more time with the new addition to the family, despite the fact that Willow's older brother, Jaden Smith, was only two years old when she was born.
She saw her family succeed in the entertainment industry and quickly realized she enjoyed the concept of becoming famous and performing on stage. She made her acting debut in the film "I Am Legend" with her father when she was only seven years old, while attending Sierra Canyon School in Los Angeles. She went on to star in "Kit Kittredge: An American Girl," for which she won a Young Artist Award, and the "True Jackson, VP" series, but her music career proved to be considerably more promising. Willow's debut single "Whip My Hair" was a tremendous hit and was certified platinum in the United States, thus she secured a deal with the Roc Nation label in 2010, where she was mentored by Jay-Z.
It was only in 2018 that Willow shared that the fame she generated from releasing “Whip My Hair” was more than she could bear, so she started cutting herself, as if trying to give way to her inner emotional pain no one had even noticed. ‘I honestly felt like I was experiencing so much emotional pain but my physical circumstances weren’t reflecting that’, she shared during a talk show episode, hosted by her mother and grandmother, Adrienne Banfield-Norrison. It took Willow more than two years to understand that she wasn’t doing anything beneficial to her body, and that her life could become better, so she just stopped self-hurting herself by 2013.
Despite the popularity of her first two songs, "Whip My Hair" and "21st Century Girl," her collaboration with Nicki Minaj was a commercial flop, and her album was delayed, then scrapped. Willow's debut album, "Ardipithecus," was released in 2015 when she gathered enough good material. Willow released her second album, "The 1st," in 2017 at the age of 17, to generally positive reviews, and in July 2019, she recorded another album, "Willow," which contained a duet with her brother Jaden called "U Know."
Willow has been working on her new music project, "The Anger," with her current beau Tyler Cole, since the end of 2019.
Willow’s first relationship she was rumored to have as a teenager, was with American actor Moisés Arias, who is most famous for starring in “Ender’s Game” and “The Kings of Summer”. Born on 18 April 1994, in New York City USA, Moisés started his acting career when he was 11 years old, appearing in an episode of the “Everybody Hates Chris” series. He later appeared in several popular Disney series, such as “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody” and “Hannah Montana”.
Willow and Moisés supposedly began dating in April 2014, however their romance was short-lived. Because Moisés was focused on his burgeoning acting career and Willow was looking for inspiration for her future record, the two couldn't devote too much time to dating and ended up breaking up, but the story was far from over.
Photos of Willow and Moisés were shared on his blog in May 2014, causing quite a stir. Arias was photographed shirtless on the bed, with Willow snuggling close to her with her head on the former "Hannah Montana" actress.
Moisés was 20, while Willow was just 13, so it even triggered an investigation by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services. Even though the photos were proven to be harmless, and Willow’s brother, Jaden, also had photos from that set, lying on the same very bed, the smoke from the whole situation was far from being pleasant. Willow certainly became far more careful with taking photographs which might become controversial.
Willow started dating aspiring musician Tyler Cole in April 2018, though some sources suggest that their friendship-turned-to-relationship started in late 2017
The first public evidence of their breakup came in 2018, when Tyler shared a photo of the two of them on Instagram, claiming that Willow was his 'queen' and 'best friend.' Willow and Tyler were seen kissing in October 2018 during a sushi date at Nobu Malibu, a prominent restaurant in California. It was Smith and Cole's first and only public display of affection, as they continued to keep their relationship under wraps.
Willow persuaded Tyler to join her on "Red Table Discussion," the talk show she produces with her mother and grandmother, on October 6, 2020, and Tyler was introduced as a "family friend."
Willow and Tyler have been recording music together as "The Anxiety" since 2019, with the eponymous album due out in 2020.
Meanwhile, Willow came out as bisexual in June 2019, saying she could see herself with either a boy or a girl: 'I love men and women equally, so one man, one woman would be ideal,' Smith said, revealing that she wishes to be in a polyamorous relationship. During one of the "Red Table Talk" episodes, she mused aloud, "Do you think you can be in love with two people at the same time?" Willow concluded, "I feel like I could be polyfidelitous with those two people."
'Do whatever makes you happy,' Jade Pinkett Smith replied, waiving her hand. Willow went on to say that she thought a monogamous relationship was toxic because if a person found out his partner was in love with someone else, it created insecurity in their relationship, which might lead to anxieties, worry, and, in some circumstances, violence. Willow's brother, Jaden, was also reported to be having a homosexual relationship with artist Tyler the Creator, though neither of them verified or disputed the reports.
