Willow Smith 'keeps 10 snakes in her bedroom': Brother calls them his 'girlfriends'
The children of Will Smith certainly aren't afraid of the reptiles
As far as bed companions go, they wouldn’t be top of most people’s list – but Willow Smith isn’t most people.
The 13-year-old daughter of Will Smith reportedly sleeps with not one, not two, but ten snakes, according to Us Weekly.
And if that wasn’t enough to give you the shivers, brother Jaden, 15, refers to the slithery creatures as his “girlfriends”.
A source told the publication that the “Whip My Hair” singer “ is obsessed with snakes” .
“She has 10 sleeping in her room and some aren’t in cages!”
And the source added that Jaden allows the serpents to “slither into his bed and curl up with him!”
Willow has been a life-long fan of snakes – she got her first boa constrictor at the age of seven and named it Beauty.
Father Will is a fan of the reptiles too, telling The Ellen Degeneres Show last year: “I'm good with snakes. Willow has a boa constrictor.”
But the Independence Day actor does draw the line at some pets. “I'm brave for my kids and strong, but if there's a mouse, Jada gotta [SIC] deal with it,” he said.
“Rats are okay, or a possum – but a mouse, ahh! Even now I'm getting nervous thinking about it.”
Last month, Willow's antics attracted controversy when she was pictured lying in bed with 20-year-old actor Moises Arias.
The black-and-white shot of the young singer, casually reclining with a topless Moises Arias, was initially posted via his Instagram account but subsequently deleted.
However, mother Jada Pinkett Smith branded critics "covert paedophiles" and claimed there was "nothing sexual" about the picture.
