Polyamorous Willow Smith

Legit.ng earlier reported that Will Smith's daughter said she preferred to have two partners at a time.

Willow broke the news on April 28 during a discussion with her mother and grandmother. Speaking on her mum's Facebook show dubbed Red Table Talk, Willow said she could not see herself going past two partners.

According to Willow, she does not want to get into a monogamous arrangement simply because those around her encourage it.
