Willow Smith reveals she’s polyamorous on ‘Red Table Talk’

Willow Smith, the 20-year-old daughter of Will and Jada Smith opened up about being polyamorous and why the concept of marriage ‘irks’ her.

Willow Smith chose Wednesday’s episode of the Facebook Watch show “Red Table Talk,” which she co-hosts with her mom and maternal grandmother Adrienne “Gammy” Banfield Norris, to reveal that she is polyamorous.

Polyamory falls under the umbrella of ethical nonmonogamy. It is a dating practice in which partners can openly date multiple people without deceit or infidelity. With Polyamory, one can be involved in more than one romantic relationship at the same time.

Pinkett Smith asked her daughter how she arrived at knowing that fact, to which Willow Smith 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?,” the younger Smith said. “Also, doing research into polyamory, the main reasons why monogamous relationships or why marriage, why divorces happen is infidelity.”
“When you were like, ‘Hey, this is my get down’, I was like, ‘I totally get it,'” Pinkett Smith said. “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. You know what I mean?”
Smith’s grandmother said, “For somebody like me, it feels like it’s really all just centered around sex,” though she admitted to having considered it herself.
“Even outside of the counseling that you get from your pastor before you get married, ’cause most people that get married, you know, will get counseling from their pastors because there is a religious aspect to it, a God aspect to it, Jada,” Banfield Norris said.
“And we had deep conversation about, what does this mean to us? What do we wanna create for ourselves? And we actually talked about polyamory, and was that something that we wanted to explore? We had that conversation.”
