Will Smith Terrified of Willow Dating

She's only 11, but Willow Smith will be dating soon enough. And it has her father freaked out.

"It's coming, and I'm nervous about it," Will Smith told PEOPLE with a laugh at Wednesday's Men in Black III premiere in New York City. "Having two boys and a girl, I realize that boys take trouble to other people's houses, and girls bring it home."

"So, the thing we are struggling with is the rules," he says, "and setting fair rules for the boys and for Willow, but she's not having any of that."

Willow Smith managed to squeeze in some shopping Friday while in Paris with her parents for the Men in Black III premiere.

Shortly after arriving in the morning from Tokyo, the singer/actress took off from her hotel and made a beeline to a nearby Cartier boutique, according to several eyewitnesses. Dressed in black leggings and a white T-shirt, Willow, 11, who was accompanied by a nanny, spent more than an hour inside the shop.

Jada Pinkett Smith and Willow's Mellow, Mother-Daughter Movie Day | Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith

Jada Pinkett Smith and Willow's Mellow, Mother-Daughter Movie Day

Originally posted 04/24/2012 05:55AM

Jada Pinkett Smith and daughter Willow headed out to the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica, Calif., on Sunday afternoon to support filmmaker pal Bess Kargman at the premiere of the ballet documentary, First Position.

Willow was clad in a black and tan leather motorcycle jacket, worn over a print T-shirt and dark leggings with combat boots. The singer capped off her rock 'n' roll look with a pink mini-mohawk.

Although the mother-daughter duo didn't do any interviews, posing for photos must have worn Willow out, because according to an onlooker, "She looked bored and sleepy as she waited for her mom to catch up inside the theatre lobby."

Once inside the theatre, the Smith women kept a seemingly low profile, as they were joined by a couple of unrecognizable guests – one of whom complimented Jada on her appearance.

"Before the screening, Willow kept mostly quiet, while her mom chatted with one of the guests," the source says. "Willow checked her phone once when they first sat down, but otherwise kept it in her pocket. On a few occasions, Jada leaned in to whisper to Willow and kissed her twice on the cheek, but as the lights dimmed, Willow shyly pulled away."

Despite reports of trouble in their marriage, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith were caught smooching Friday in Philadelphia – on the Jumbotron!

Will, 43, and Jada, 40, were "couply and cuddly," says fellow spectator Becky Haring, 22, of Birdsboro, Pa., who sat a few rows away from the famous pair at the Philadelphia 76ers-Miami Heat game Friday night. "They were having a good time," she says.

Philadelphia-native Smith danced during the game (even though his team lost 84-78) and at one point planted a wet one on his wife for the "kiss cam."

The night out was a family affair for the basketball-loving couple, who posed courtside with kids Willow, 11, and Jaden, 13.

"We are still together, and our marriage is intact," the couple of 13 years said in a joint statement Tuesday, responding to tabloid reports of a split.
