Willow Smith says she has no plans to get married in the future after coming out as polyamorous.
The Whip My Hair singer opened up about her sexuality during a sit down with her mother Jada Pinkett Smith and grandmother Adrienne Banfield-Norris in the latest episode of Red Table Talk.
After revealing she lives a polyamorous lifestyle, which is when a person who engages in multiple intimate relationships at the same time, Willow shared her thoughts on marriage and it doesn’t look as though she’ll be following in her parents Jada and Will Smith’s footsteps.
The 20-year-old explained: ‘The history of marriage really irks me. Just the history of marriage as a whole and what it has represented over the years, for women in particular.
‘I feel like the only way that I would get married is – let’s say me and my partner or partners wants to help people, and we need to put our finances together in order to make that vision happen.’
She confirmed: ‘That’s the only way I could see myself getting married.’
Jada had earlier asked Willow to explain how she came to be polyamorous, to which the youngster revealed she was drawn to ‘the freedom’ to be able to create a relationship that works for her needs without feeling forced to conform to monogamy because that’s what society says is the ‘right thing’.
‘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,’ she added.
Jada understood where Willow was coming from and weighed in: ‘When you were like, “Hey, this is my get down”, I was like, “I totally get it”.
‘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?’
Last summer, Jada and Will took their seats at the red table to open up about their own marriage and the strain they faced.
Former Gotham actress Jada then revealed that she had an ‘entanglement’ with singer August Alsina during a period when she was on a break with Will.
The couple, who married in 1997, joked they were in a ‘bad marriage for life’.
