Who is Jaden Smith
Jaden Smith is an American singer and actor who has a net worth of $8M.
Jaden started his career at a young age, playing a role opposite his father Will Smith in The Pursuit of Happyness.
However, he quickly forged out his own brand of solo fame thanks to his musical and acting talents.
The Early Years
Jaden Smith was born in Malibu, California on July 8, 1998. His parents are Will Smith and Jada Pinket Smith.
He has a younger sister Willow Smith and another half-sibling who is called Trey Smith.
Jaden went to the New Village Leadership Academy in Calabasas but then switched over to home-schooling which he says kept him from making conventional friends.
In interviews, Jaden said this sense of isolation led him to skateboard, a hobby he could enjoy without being recognized as a celebrity.
Jaden’s first major film role was The Pursuit of Happyness in 2006, starring alongside his father Will Smith.
In the film, he played the son of Will Smith’s character and was awarded Breakthrough Performance at the 2007 MTV Movie Awards.
A few years later in 2010, he managed to land his first starring role in a remake of The Karate Kid alongside Jackie Chan.
In 2014, Jaden landed a role to play his father’s son again in the film After Earth, a science fiction adventure.
The film didn’t perform great at the box office and Jaden did receive some negative reviews for his performance.
This led him to take a break from acting to pursue his passion for music and other projects.
However, in 2017 he returned to star in Netflix original series The Get Down.
In 2018, he landed a role in teen drama Skate Kitchen and in 2019 performed in the young adult drama Life in a Year, alongside Cara Delevingne and Cuba Gooding Jr.
Jaden rapped alongside Justin Bieber in the song Never Say Never and in 2012 released a mixtape called The Cool Cafe.
He released a follow up mix tape in 2014 called CTV2 and started to work on his first album.
The record took 3 years to complete and in 2017 he released his first album Syre.
He released a follow-up album the year after called Syre: The Electric Album which was a rework of the music in his first album in an electric guitar style.
In 2019 he released his second album Erys.
Jaden Smith filed for emancipation from his parents at the young age of 15, with their full approval and the hope that he would be able to get his own house.
In 2017, both Jaden and Willow moved out of their family home and moved into a $4M home in Hollywood Hills.
