Who is Willow Smith dating? Singer reveals 'fair share of swooning' over women, believes in 'ethical non-monogamy'
Willow Smith's mother Jada Pinkett Smith revealed that she too had been sexually attracted to women in the past in the latest edition of their Facebook show 'Red Table Talk'
Jada Pinkett Smith and her daughter Willow recently made some revelations about their private lives. During the latest edition of their Facebook show 'Red Table Talk', the mother-daughter duo revealed that they have been attracted to women in the past.
Present on the show with them was the co-host Jada's mother, 67-year-old Adrienne Banfield-Norris.
While Jada confessed that actually having a relationship with a woman "wasn't for me", she revealed that she had been sexually attracted to women in the past. "I love being amongst women but I never could connect to women romantically but that's not to say that it couldn't be, like you just never know," said Jada.
Adding that she has "swooned a lot" for women, the actress said, "I've had two times I've been like infatuated with a woman." She recalls how these intense emotions came to her "early, early, early on" in her life when she was around the age of "like 20".
At the same time, her daughter Willow noted, "I've had my fair share of like swooning and thinking: 'Oh my god, she's so beautiful! She's so talented!'" Willow added, "I don't feel like I've been in love with a woman just yet, but I definitely feel like it could happen because I've had very strong feelings for women before. That feeling that you get when you're with your sisters - that understanding and that acceptance and that softness, I feel like it is very appealing, specifically to me."
No monogamy for Willow
In the June of 2019, Willow had opened up about her sexuality and polyamory, saying that "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." On her Instagram bio, Willow writes she is into "ethical non-monogamy".
On a 2018 episode of the 'Red Table Talk', she said, "That feeling of you’re my one and my only. There’s no one else; for me, that would not work. This is the scariest thought that people shy away from. It’s the feeling of feeling like the person that you love is falling in love with somebody else. And that insecurity and fear just eats us alive."
She added, "But that insecurity and fear is something that we need to overcome and something that we need to evolve out of and transmute that into something new and different that can actually be helpful and make us love more and more freely."
Who is Willow Smith dating?
All this talk might have one wondering if Willow is dating or single. Since 2018, she has been linked to musician Tyler Cole.
In October 2020, he appeared as a guest on 'Red Table Talk' to discuss voting alongside her mother and grandmother. When she introduced the 22-year-old musician, she described him as a "close family friend". Many reports at the time claimed that she was debuting her romance with Cole on the show.
Cole is on the band The Anxiety with Willow Smith. He worked on her latest album and even collaborated with her on a 24-hour performance art event at the Museum of Contemporary Art’s Geffen Contemporary.
According to reports, Cole is also reported to be one to break the various moulds of the music industry. "I feel like a huge dilemma for us as Black people is that the media and the industry wants to see us in a certain light. In the music industry, you’re taught that oh, if you’re Black and you rap about violence and money that’s going to make you more money. Labels are going to want to sign you if you’re talking about violence more so than [something else]." While he is known for avoiding the normative staus quo when it comes to his music, it is not known what Cole feels about Willow's ideas about polyamorous relationships.
