The American performer – who is the daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett – told her mother and grandmother, Adrienne, about her sexuality for the first time during a recent episode of Table Talk.
The Facebook series focuses on all three generations of their family as they discuss “taboo” subjects such as porn and infidelity, with the most recent instalment focusing on unconventional relationships.
Willow admitted that she’s become interested in polyamory, before explaining the meaning of the term to her mother and grandmother. She then said that her ideal relationship would be with both a man and a woman.
“Personally, male and female, that’s all I need,” she said, to which Jada responded: “Well, there it is… I think my stomach just jumped. Listen, you know me Willow, whatever makes you happy.”
Willow added: “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. I’m not the kind of person that is constantly looking for new sexual experiences.
“I focus a lot on the emotional connection and I feel like if I were to find two people of different genders that I really connected with and we had a romantic and sexual connection, I don’t feel like I would feel the need to try to go find more.”
Adrienne later said she “wouldn’t be excited” at the thought of her granddaughter in a throuple.
“There’s so many different types of people in this world and so many people to learn from, and I don’t see the benefit in… not putting myself in a position to learn as much as I possibly can from as many people as I possibly can,” said Willow.
Watch Willow, Adrienne and Jada discuss unconventional relationships below.
Some made horrible decisions, others were just bad presidents, a few were really bloodthirsty extremists, whilst a couple were warmongers. All of these guys are a mix who in the last 130 years have been the architects of the most horrific genocides, systematic murders, blockades, brutal wars, and policy reforms history has ever recorded.
Where to begin? Maybe an icebreaker for you next dinner party? Did you know the word “genocide” was coined in 1943 to describe when the Armenians were slaughtered haphazardly by Turkish leader Ismail Enver? Until then there was no specific word for it in our language. It makes me think about how much more cognizant we’ve become in this last century to these events. So, a quick toast between you and I to a more peaceable future where less of what follows below is allowed to happen. Sit back, but don’t relax.

Breakdown: 1 million civilians on the wrong side of a blockade caused by a war of secession in Nigeria and 100,000 soldiers who died in that war.
It starts as many sad stories do with precious beautiful oil. It had been found in the Niger delta where tensions were already high between the Eastern region (led by Ojukwu) and the rest of the country (governed by Yakubu). A dummy agreement was signed between them called the “Aburi Accord”, but it meant nothing to either leader.
Yakubu started to put pressure on the region, and tested how much sway he had in the area versus Ojukwu. Well Ojukwu being no slouch declared secession from the rest of Nigeria and became the “Republic of Biafra”. This began a war that caused the deaths of 100,000 soldiers, and much worse, a blockade on the region which starved 1 million civilians.

An Italian container ship bound for Brazilwhile carrying some 2,000 cars including some three dozen Porsches caught fire and sank in the Atlantic Ocean just off the coast of France last week.
All 27 crew members aboard were rescued by the British military, though French authorities quickly began to clean up an oil spill caused as a result of the sinking.
The vessel ran aground on March 12 about 150 nautical miles southwest of Brest, France, at a depth of 15,000 feet beneath the surface of the ocean.
The German automaker confirmed on Tuesday that the doomed vessel was carrying four models of the 911 GT2 RS.
Production of this specific model ended last February, but Porsche will manufacture a few more to make up for the lost shipment, according to Carscoops.
Each vehicle carries a retail price of about $293,200.
The Stuttgart-based company wrote a letter to its Brazilian customers informing them that they would reproduce the model especially for them.
‘We are sorry to inform you that, due to a fire, a Grimaldi group ship, that was transporting your vehicle, sank on March 12, 2019,’ the company wrote to its customers.
‘And for that reason, your GT2 RS can not be delivered.
‘As you may know, Porsche ended the 911 GT2 RS production on February 2019 and under normal circumstances, it wouldn’t be possible to give you another car.
‘But, due to the nature of the situation, and considering that you’re a loyal and highly valuable customer for our brand, Porsche has decided to resume the GT2 RS production in Germany, and your vehicle will be produced in April, with delivery scheduled for June.
‘We recommend that you contact your local Porsche Center for further information.’
In addition to the 911 GT2 RS, Porsche had a number of other models that were lost at sea.
They include 718 Caymans, Boxsters, and Cayennes.
In total, there were 37 Porsches aboard the Grande America.
Another European car maker, Audi, lost a number of its vehicles in the shipment, including the Audi A3, A5, RS4, RS5, and Q7 models.
A crew of 27 were saved from the Grande America on March 11 as it was engulfed in flames after a Royal Navy vessel moved in to rescue them from 150 miles away.
It took sailors on HMS Argyll just eight hours to save every person aboard the 28,000-ton merchant ship in the Bay of Biscay after the ship’s cargo of containers and cars caught fire.
The crew aboard the Grande America merchant ship had been trying to fight the flames but were forced to abandon it, climbing into their lifeboat despite the 5m to 6m swirls in the sea at night.
The lifeboat’s engine had been damaged, which left it unable to move away from the flames leaving the crew ‘bobbing around like a cork in a bathtub.’
On receiving a mayday message, the Argyll moved 150 miles through difficult sea conditions to launch their small sea boat, which was used to nudge the lifeboat against the safety of the frigate so the crew could be lifted to safety one-by-one.
Lieutenant Commander Dave Tetchner, from HMS Argyll, said: ‘It was pretty awful for them – they’d had to fight a fire in dreadful seas.
‘Every one of them suffered smoke inhalation. Then they faced the prospect of abandoning ship and then their lifeboat failed. It was pretty awful all round and they were shocked.
‘You see container ships like this every day when you’re sailing around the world. What you do not see is one in flames – it was a dreadful sight.’
The 27 sailors rescued were then taken to the French port of Brest and while there were no life-threatening injuries, some required hospital treatment.
The frigate had been returning to Plymouth after nine months in the Asia-Pacific region working with allies overseas.
The MV Grande America was still aflame when Argyll left the merchant ship around 5am.
The Italian-registered vessel had been bound for Casablanca from Hamburg when the fire broke out at 8pm on March 10.
Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson said: ‘HMS Argyll’s swift and selfless response to very dangerous situation in difficult conditions undoubtedly saved 27 lives. I commend her crew.
‘This rescue demonstrates that even on the final leg of a challenging nine-month deployment to the Far East, the Royal Navy’s sailors remain vigilant and professional at all times.’
Clean up efforts are underway after 2,200 tons of heavy fuel seeped into the ocean.
Grimaldi Lines, the Italian company which operates the vessel, said that the ship carried 365 containers – 45 of which had ‘hazardous materials,’ according to the BBC.
These materials included 10 tons of hydrochloric acid and 70 tons of sulphuric acid.
French authorities said that because most of the materials had already burned, the damage was likely to be ‘very localised’ and ‘would not have serious consequences for the environment.’
