Look, I get that Will and Jada Pinkett Smith are supposed to be the “cool parents” – like Amy Poehler in Mean Girls – when it comes to raising Jaden and Willow Smith, but something’s gotta give, here. These kids are fucking WEIRD, way too grown for their own good and will either need serious counseling to become functional adults or they’ll just go off the rails and live in some wilderness commune as they wait for Xenu to come back and rescue them on his spaceship.
The latest from the Smith camp is that apparently Willow and Jaden are “obsessed” with snakes, to the point that they sleep with them every single night.
“Willow is obsessed with snakes,” a source tells Us Weekly, adding that Jaden, 15, “cuddles” with them in bed.
“She has 10 sleeping in her room,” the source adds of the 13-year-old, “and some aren’t in cages!” She isn’t the only Smith family member who adores the serpents. Her brother Jaden refers to his sister’s pets as his “girlfriends,” the insider tells Us. “They slither into his bed and curl up with him!”
Apparently the snake love has become a family affair, as even Jada told Redbook:
“I’ve always loved snakes but was afraid of them,” she told Redbook magazine. “But Willow had wanted this one snake forever. She’d go into the pet store and pick it up and wrap it around her. I’d never touched a snake before, and I put out my hand, and Beauty [mimics the snake slithering up her arm]. I’ve been in love with her ever since. I said to Willow, ‘You did Mommy a big favor. You helped me overcome a fear.’”
Welp… okay then.
