Jaden Smith Parents and Siblings
Jaden Smith is the second child of Will Smith as he already shares a son, Willard Carroll “Trey” Smith III with his ex-wife, Sheree Zampino. The Bad Boys actor and Zampino divorced in 1995 after marrying in 1992.
Despite being half-siblings, Jaden shares a deep bond with his elder brother, Trey, who is an actor. All things considered, there aren’t many people who have a relationship quite like the Smith Family. Trey is like one of those dotting big brother who takes care of his siblings. In addition, he is also close to Jaden’s mom, Jada Pinkett.
Meanwhile, Jaden has one baby sister, Willow Smith. Just like him, she is also into music and till now, released several albums. Her famous songs are Wait a Minute, Everything Stays, and Why Don’t You Cry.
For the greater part of his life, Jaden was homeschooled by his parents. Before homeschooling, he attended, the now-defunct, New Village Leadership Academy. His mom and dad founded the school back in 2008 and it closed in 2013.
Jaden Had Difficulty Adjusting to the Celebrity Life
There are plenty of star kids who enjoys their celeb status and would give up anything to be born again as a celebrity, but Jaden was an exception. Growing up, Jaden wanted a normal childhood, something he couldn’t afford due to his parent’s fame.
In an interview with Dazed, Jaden went on lengths explaining how his celeb status refrained him from living a normal life as a kid. He explained,
“People treat me like I’m not a normal human so much, that you start to believe [it], like, ‘Am I not a normal human? I didn’t always get to hang out with normal people when I was young. So being older and being able to hang out with the big kids and play with normal people is fun.”
This is why Jaden found solace in skateboarding and blended straight into the scene. According to him, whenever he goes skateboarding, people for five-minutes say, ‘Oh its Jaden Smith,’ but afterward, he is just another skater.

Does Jaden Smith have Tattoos? Has he Inked Himself Yet?
Being a rapper, it’s like a formality or something to ink a tattoo in your body, though there are many who exempted themselves from these unwritten rules.
Naturally, fans were curious if Jaden has followed this rule and inked himself. Well, back in 2019, he surprised his fans by sharing a picture of his face with a tattoo. He had the name of his discography, Erys under his left eye, and a straight & triangle like-figure under his right cheeks.
But later on, it was found, the tatts were just drawings and not permanent. He just imagined himself with them. Soon after, he removed the picture from his social media handle.
In addition, he also rocked the internet when a picture of him surfaced with a Drake tattoo on his left chest. At the time, many thought he inked the Canadian rapper’s face but it was a fake, after all. It seems Jaden doesn’t have any real tattoos yet.
Jaden Smith’s Vegetarian Diet and Health Issues: Is he a Vegan?
In late 2019, during one of the episodes of ‘Red Table Talk,’ Jaden’s parents, Will and Jada vividly talked about his health condition and staged an intervention on his diet.
According to them, his diet was affecting him as his health was deteriorating. They said, “he just looked drained” and his body lacks essential nutrients.
Since 2018, Jaden followed a strict vegetarian diet and had an inconsistent eating habit. Sometimes he would eat two times and sometimes one big meal the whole day. After the episode, Jaden had some bad moments in the public. He stated, “After the last episode, I walk in the street, and people are like, ‘Oh my God’ — they’re like, ‘Are you sick? Like, can I pick you up? Can I get you some water?”
Jaden then had a health test conducted after three months when the result came, Will gave him a pep talk. The full episode was filmed and featured Dr. Mark Hyman and Mona Sharma, Will Smith’s wellness coach.
When Jaden revealed he faces stomach issues frequently, Hyman mentioned it is because he is sensitive to Dairy and Gluten. Likewise, as Jaden’s diet doesn’t contain fish or meat, the B12, Omega-3, and Vitamin-D levels dropped significantly.
