Who said that you have to grow up before the millions start rolling in? The young American actor Jaden Smith is still in his teens and already earning all the money most of us can only dream of.
He is an actor, rapper, singer, songwriter, dancer, and the son of the famous Hollywood power couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. Perhaps influenced by the talent that already exists in his family, Jaden became popular in the entertainment industry at a very young age. He made his acting debut in 2003, at the tender age of 6, when he starred in “All of Us”, a UPN show created by his parents based on their own mixed family.
Many films with his father Will Smith prepared Jaden for the task at hand, and he began soliciting offers himself. Within a short time in the industry, he starred in successful movies, most of which received much applause.
However, this cannot be said of his musical career, as he has not yet released a hit album despite working with well-known singers such as Justin Bieber. He also shows interest in the business world and has already started working with a Korean designer to set up pop stores that will sell clothes with unique designs. It would be nice to invest some of his money, as it is a lot for a teenager.
In most cases, Jaden makes his own waves in Hollywood, despite the fact that he achieved fame with the influence of his famous father.

Jaden Smith Bio, Family
The child star Smith was born on July 8, 1998, in California (Malibu), USA, as the son of the famous Hollywood stars Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. He has a mixed-race of African-Caribbean origin.
Jaden and his siblings – an older half-brother named Trey and his young sister Willow Smith – grew up in a very liberal environment. In other words, their parents gave them the freedom to live life as they saw fit. At the age of 15, Jaden asked for emancipation from his parents, which he received as a birthday present.
Before fame, he and his siblings helped Project Zambia and Hasbro to care for children in Zambia. The children were made up of those whose parents died of AIDS. He later followed in his father’s footsteps and in 2006 made his film debut in “The Pursuit of Happyness” with his real-life father. The duo also starred in the science fiction film “After Earth”, made in 2013, and in 2010 they starred in the remake of “The Karate Kid” together with Jackie Chan. While the former turned out to be a disaster, the latter was a complete blockbuster and is still his biggest role today. Another of his popular roles was in “The Day The Earth Stood Still” with Keanu Reeves. The film won him a Saturn Prize for the best performance by a younger actor.
In his 2010 hit “Never Say Never” Jaden rapped alongside singer Justin Bieber and tried his hand at music. Later he released his first mixtape “The Cool Café” in 2012. Nevertheless, he still has to explore the horizon in the music industry.
Height, Girlfriend, Is He Gay?
With such good looks and a height of 1.74 m, it is no surprise how much attention he gets from fans, especially women. Jaden dated reality TV star Kylie Jenner from 2013 to 2015. Shortly after his separation from Kylie, in 2015, he started dating Instagram star, Sarah Snyder. But their relationship began to falter in 2017, whereupon he began dating actress Odessa Adlon.
Jaden, 19, and Odessa, 18, are still in love with each other and do not mind stealing a few kisses in public. Apparently, the trouble hasn’t reached their paradise yet, and we hope that this won’t be the case because they look so cute together.

Although he may have appeared as a gay character some time ago, the young star has never given us reason to question his sexuality as, as far as we know, he has only dated girls until recently when he came on stage at one of his performances to announce to his audience that Tyler the Creator is his friend. He went on to say that Tyler didn’t want people to know, but he would announce it anyway. Tyler, on the other hand, did not deny or confirm the statement so people wondered if Jaden was serious about what he was saying or if he was just doing an expensive publicity stunt.
Is Jaden Smith Dead?
Being a celebrity brings challenges, which may include dying several online deaths before the appointed time. Jaden Smith is no stranger to this.
In September 2016, a heinous hoax broke out on the Internet that suggested the actor’s death. The news claimed that he had committed suicide, and some fans actually bought it. Be that as it may, Jaden is alive and well and has lived his life to the fullest.
