Willow Smith has been known to have some “strange” antics, but this is enough to make anyone’s skin crawl. The 12-yar-old celebrity sleeps with snakes in her bedrooms.
“Willow is obsessed with snakes,” a source told Us Weekly, adding that Jaden, 15, “cuddles” with them in bed.
Willow doesn’t have just one or two pet snakes, she has close to a dozen.
“She has 10 sleeping in her room,” the source adds of the 13-year-old, “and some aren’t in cages!” She isn’t the only Smith family member who adores the slithering serpents. Her brother Jaden calls to his sister’s pets as his “girlfriends,” the insider revealed to Us. “They slither into his bed and curl up with him!”
Although Willow has been a snake lover since she was very young, mom Jada hasn’t always had a warm and fuzzy feeling about them.
“I’ve always loved snakes but was afraid of them,” she told Redbook magazine. “But Willow had wanted this one snake forever. She’d go into the pet store and pick it up and wrap it around her. I’d never touched a snake before, and I put out my hand, and Beauty [mimics the snake slithering up her arm]. I’ve been in love with her ever since. I said to Willow, ‘You did Mommy a big favor. You helped me overcome a fear.'”
Willow was recently spotted, snake-free, on a family trip with her mom and dad in Hawaii.
