Willow Smith emerges for the first time since revealing she’s polyamorous for dinner with her beau

Willow Smith has stepped out for the first time since publicly revealing she is polyamorous as she headed out for dinner with her brother Jaden on Friday.

On Wednesday Willow, 20, revealed she was polyamorous during a discussion with her mother and grandmother on Red Table Talk, but has been in what appears to be a monogamous relationship with Tyler since 2017.

On Wednesday Willow spoke publicly about being polyamorous, but noted that she can’t see herself ‘going past two partners.’ 

Willow, who appears to be a monogamous relationship with her boyfriend, Tyler Cole, made the revelation on her mother’s Facebook show Red Table Talk.

She explained: ‘With polyamory, I feel like the main foundation is the freedom to be able to create a relationship style that works for you and not just stepping into monogamy because that’s what everyone around you says is the right thing to do.’

‘So I was like, how can I structure the way that I approach relationships with that in mind? Also, doing research into polyamory, the main reasons why monogamous relationships – or why marriage – why divorces happen is infidelity.’

Willow – who practices ethical non-monogamy, meaning that all partners give consent to being polyamorous – was met with resistance from her grandmother Adrienne Banfield-Norris, who said: ‘For somebody like me, it feels like it’s really all just centered around sex.’

Smith then gave her ‘Gammy’ an example of a couple who might have opposite appetites for sex.

‘Are you gonna be the person to say, you know: “Just because I don’t have these needs, you can’t have them either?”‘ the Rise songstress explained.

‘And so that’s kind of one of the reasons why I actually was interested in poly because I was introduced to it through kind of a nonsexual lens. In my friend group, I’m the only polyamorous person, and I have the least sex out of all of my friends.’

Willow – who said the ‘history of marriage really irks me’ – found a more open, compassionate listener in her mother Jada.

‘I’m okay with whatever you do,’ the 49-year-old Matrix 4 action star shrugged.

‘When you were like, “Hey, this is my get down.” I was like, “I totally get it.” Wanting to set up your life in a way that you can have what it is that you want, I think anything goes as long as the intentions are clear.’

Willow’s ‘coming out’ was not a revelation as she already confessed she was bisexual and polyfidelitous (a form of non-monogamy) two years ago on her weekly Facebook Watch series.

‘I love men and women equally and so I would definitely want one man, one woman,’ the Calabasas native said at the time.

‘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 the 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.’

Since 2017, Willow has been in what appears to be a monogamous relationship with Tyler Cole, whom she met through her big brother Jaden.
