Willow Smith enjoys a day out with her mom Jada on Wednesday (May 16) in Cannes, France.
Willow was in Paris with her family, where dad Will Smith promoted his latest movie, Men in Black 3.
Willow and Jada recently participated in a video discussion titled â€œRed Table Talksâ€ along with Jadaâ€˜s mom Adrienne Banfield-Jones.
â€œFor people to be able to sit down together and have a conversation, thatâ€™s the power of love. Love is what sometimes holds us and binds us when weâ€™re not so happy,â€ Jada shared. â€œMy belief is that communication is the best way to create strong relationships.
Will Smith was made a proud papa today as he got to witness the High School graduation of his first born Trey Smith. The Hollywood superstar took his place among the rest of the parents with wife Jada Pinkett-Smith and their other two children Jaden and Willow. Trey, 18, took the stage to collect his diploma at Oaks Christian high school in Westlake Village, California.
Now y’all all know how Will and Jada are about their kids so it was no surprise that the two couldn’t contain their excitement and pride throughout the presentation, during which all of the students at the High School took their turn to appear on stage and picked up their graduation papers. Will Smith’s ex-wife Sheree Zampino who is the biological mother of Trey Smith. The Smith family were the center of attention(DUH) at their son’s big day.

â€œThere are so many other kids you can worry about. My kids? Theyâ€™re going to be all right. I get why people would criticize. But people need to know that Will and I would never put our children in a situation that would bring them detriment,â€ she says, her hazel eyes flashing.
â€œMy kids have no idea how I grew up,â€ Pinkett Smith continues. â€œEven in knowing my story, they couldnâ€™t know what that means. They have no RE-ALI-TY. None. My feeling is, my kids need to have challenges, in a safe way. If I survived everything that I survived in Baltimore and Will survived everything he survived in Philly, these kids surely can survive the Hollywood game. With so many heavyweights surrounding themâ€”from BeyoncÃ© and Jay-Z to Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith to Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthonyâ€”if they can fail in a circle like that, then they werenâ€™t going to win in the first place.â€
â€œAll I want for Trey (Willâ€™s oldest son from his first marriage), Jaden, and Willow is happiness,â€ she says. â€œAs long as theyâ€™re happy, and know how to maneuver in this world, Iâ€™m good.â€
On Ending Her Music Career
When Jaden did The Pursuit of Happyness, I was supposed to go on tour with Guns Nâ€™ Roses in Europe,â€ she says softly.
She turned down the offer and eventually disbanded the group. â€œIt was probably the most heartbreaking experience. But what I realized is that sometimes God will place things in your life that will make you recognize what your priorities are. I adore my son; heâ€™s my soul seed. There was no way that I was going to allow him to do [a movie] and not have his mother.â€
