Willow Smith, the 11-year-old daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinket Smith, shocked fans and followers when she posted an instagram photo of herself sporting some new hardware inside her mouth– a tongue ring.

The “Whip my Hair” singer received a bit of outrage from her fans after she proudly posted this pic, showing off the mouth metal. Her friend joined her in the photo, wearing a chin ring.

Willow later updated the caption writing, ‘It’s Fake…Sorry.’

“It isn’t a piercing– it is a magnet. Just a young girl having fun with accessories,” a source told Gossip Cop of Willow’s pic.

If the ring had been real, in the state of California, you must receive parental consent at Smith’s age to get that kind of body piercing. This means one of her A-List parents, Will or Jada Pinkett Smith, would have had to sign off on it.

Do you think she is too young to have posed with a fake tongue ring? Sound off in the comments!
