Cape Town - Willow Smith does not believe in monogamy.

The 17-year-old made the candid confession in the latest episode of her mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, Facebook show Red Table Talk, which they co-host with Jada’s mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones.

With the conversation centred on sex and relationships, the Girls Trip actress questioned her daughter and her best friend Telana Lynum about their views on commitment, to which Willow answered: “That feeling of ‘you’re my one and my only, there’s no one else’… for me, that would not work.”

Jada, who has been married to husband Will Smith for 21 years, also shared her thoughts on the topic, admitting that for some people committing to one person for the rest of their lives would be difficult.

“It’s a tricky one, and I tell you I think about it a lot with married women who are in this sexual monotony of feeling this obligation of having to have sex because they’re in a monogamous relationship,” Jada said, “but sometimes you just don’t feel like it. Never feel obligated. It’s because women fear losing their men if sex isn’t good or you’re not having enough sex.”

It’s not the first time the Whip My Hair hitmaker has made it known she doesn’t believe in monogamy.

In 2017, she posted on Instagram an excerpt from a book which spoke on the topic.

In her caption, Willow, who is in a relationship with Tyler Cole, said about being committed to just one person: “It's a trap // Don't fall into it // Emotional independence is KEY // This is precisely what 'Romance' is about // Album drops in 3 days !! #The1st // Book:
