There is no doubt that Will Smith is one of the highest-paid stars in show business. Besides being a successful star and musician; he is a proud father of three beautiful children, and you will be surprised to find out that his entire family was also at the height of their success.
Now you’re thinking it’s easy for Will Smith’s kids to break into Hollywood, but did you know that Jaden Smith asked his father to emancipate (A legal process by which a child before achieving the age of 18 can free himself from his parents’ guidance and control) him when he was 15?
Surprise, huh Well, I have many more amazing facts to share, but you have to keep reading to find more.
Born on July 8, 1998, Jaden Smith’s real name is Jaden Christopher Syre Smith. Like his father, he is a successful actor and rapper. With his father Will Smith, he made his film debut at age eight with The Pursuit of Happyness in 2006.
Early Education And Career
Before being homeschooled by his parents, Smith attended New Village Leadership Academy. Being a famous child star made it difficult for him to enjoy a normal childhood. As a child he also loved skateboarding.
As I had told you before, he started his career with The Pursuit of Happyness in 2006. Due to his spectacular performance in the movie, he bagged the award for Breakthrough Performance at the MTV Movie Awards in 2007.
In 2008, he played the role of Jacob in Scott Derrickson’s science fiction film, The Day the Earth Stood Still.
In 2010, Jaden starred in the remake of the 1984 movie The Karate Kid, alongside Jackie Chan, which earned him quite fame and success.
After Earth was the film in which Will Smith starred with Jaden Smith and the movie was released in May 2013. Sadly, the film did not receive good reviews and wasn’t a big hit.
Now we come to his music career. In 2010 Jaden started his music career and rapped alongside Justin Bieber in the hit song “Never Say Never. The single earned a massive hit on Billboard.
After the success of his single, Jaden released his first mixtape, The Cool Cafe, in 2012.
Smith’s father, Will, revealed that his son sought an emancipation ruling, with the consent of his parents, as a present for his 15th birthday. Will Smith revealed that it was a tough moment for him and his wife, and he sensed that his son was “betrayed” by his actions.
Will balmed this mess on the unsuccessful movie “After Earth” because he had “coached” him through the film.
We never discussed it, but I know he felt betrayed,” Will wrote of his relationship with Jaden. “He felt misled, and he lost his trust in my leadership.
However, on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Jaden explained the reason behind his decision and said,
The thing that people don’t get is everything at his house is free. So, I can get anything and everything at his house, so I’m going to be there for 20, 30 more years. He [Will Smith] says that as soon as I have a movie that’s bigger than one of his movies, I can get my own house
As of June 2017, Smith had moved out of his parent’s house and into a new home worth $4 million in Hidden Hills.
Between May 2010 and August 2011, Jaden began dating Madison. Both were very young at that time and had a lot in common. However, the couple broke after spending a year together.
In 2011 Jaden Smith started dating Stella Hudgens, Vanessa Hudgen’s younger sister; they both broke up in 2012.
After breaking up with Stella, he dated Sofia from November 2012 to January 2013; sadly, their affair lasted only three months.
Jaden then dated Kylie Jenner for almost a year, from March 2013 to March 2014, and she helped him through some tough times. However, the couple broke up without sharing the reason for their breakup reason with the public.
From 2015 to 2017, Smith dated Sarah Snyder. They split up amid cheating rumors after “growing apart.”
Then in 2018, he dropped a bomb on his fans when he told the public that he was dating rapper Tyler, the Creator.
In 2021, on Valentine’s Day, Karate Kid star was seen kissing his former co-star, Cara Delvigne. Smith even brought her roses and stuff to celebrate this special day. So, on the basis of this photo people assume that he is currently in a relationship with Cara Delvigne.
It is well known that Smith is a conspiracy theorist, and his opinions are often controversial. His tweets about the Illuminati sparked controversies in public. He said,
Why Is There A Pyramid With An All Seeing Eye On The Dollar Bill?
Jaden also took to Twitter to talk about chemtrails. He wrote,
Besides talking about different theories he also shared his thoughts about the traditional education system and advised people to drop out of school. He said,
“If Everybody In The World Dropped Out Of School We Would Have A Much More Intelligent Society.”
In 2016 Smith received heavy criticism from his fans after modeling in a womenswear campaign for Louis Vuitton. In this modeling campaign, he wore a woman’s skirt. But he wasn’t ashamed of his decision and said,
In five years, when a kid goes to school wearing a skirt, he won’t get beat up and kids won’t get mad at him.

A public controversy started in 2015 when Willow Smith, who was 13, posed in bed with a shirtless 20-year-old Moises Arias. The people started talking about their age gap and said it was too mature for a girl to be in bed with a 20 years old boy.
Willow’s parents supported their daughter and said nothing was wrong with this picture.
Again, in June 2019, Will’s statement created controversy when she proudly announced that she is bisexual, stating, “I love men and women equally.” She also supports polyamorous relationships, and it is her desire to be in one. She said,
I love men and women equally, and so I would definitely want one man, one woman. I feel like I could be polyfidelitous with those two people… I focus a lot on the emotional connection and I feel like if I were to find two people of 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.
