The photo that shocked Hollywood.

Why the world is losing its mind over this Instagram photo of Willow Smith.

Willow Smith, the tween popstar/actress daughter of  Hollywood couple Will and Jada, is making headlines after this photo of her was shared on social media.

In the Instagram pic the 13-year-old singer is seen lying on a bed with a half-naked man, known to be 20-year-old Hannah Montana (Miley Cyrus’s sitcom) actor Moises Aras.

Moises posted the photo but quickly deleted it after the tirade of backlash against the image started growing.

The picture has many questioning the parenting decisions of A-listers Will and Jada, whose son Jaden is reportedly dating Kim Kardashian's sister Kendall Jenner.  But while Will and Jada are said to be distressed by the fuss, they reportedly have "no issue" with the photo, as Moises is a "family friend."

Willow has said in the past that her childhood is far from conventional. "I never really get to go to school because I am always on tour or with my father.

"There is a tutor most of the time, but usually I am working so I never get to do the lessons. The worst thing about math is all the kids are ahead of me because they go to school."

Only just entering her teenage years, Willow is well known in Hollywood for her extravagant fashion sense and popular hit 'Whip My Hair.'
