Jaden Smith Explained What His Relationship Was Like With Will Smith’s Son, Trey Smith, at 11 Years Old

Everyone knows that Jaden and Willow Smith are the children of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. But we cannot forget about Trey Smith. Trey is 27 years old and was Will’s first son in his first marriage to Sheree Zampino. And he had a very difficult relationship with his father.

So how did Jaden feel about Trey’s stepbrother when he was a kid? He gave some audience insight when he was just 11 years old. Here is what he said.

Mixed family dinamics can be difficult, and that was true for Will and Trey. Willard Carroll “Trey” Smith III was born in 1992 back when Will was still with Zampino. But Will and Zampino separated in 1995. Although Trey was the only child in Will’s world for years, everything changed when Will remarried in 1997 and had Jaden in 1998.

While Trey appeared in Will’s music video, “Just the Two of Us,” he later explained that he felt completely abandoned by his father. While Will worked on raising Jaden and Willow to become stars, he didn’t spend as much quality time with Trey. And it was Jada who eventually kicked Will in high gear to get his friendship with his eldest son back on track.

“You are so concerned about creating this image that you have in mind that you will not even see the blessing that stands right in front of you,” Jada once explained of Will.

Trey and Will have done much to improve their relationship over the years. And the father-son duo look better than he did now. As for Jaden, he doesn’t talk about his relationship with his stepmother too often. But the subject came up when he was only 11 years old and visiting The late show with David Letterman in 2010.

While on display, David Letterman drew a picture of the Smith family. “I have a picture of your family here,” said Letterman. “Tell me a little bit about everyone in the picture, okay?”

“Well, all right,” Jaden began. And finally the subject turned to Trey. “It’s really nice,” said Jaden. “He and I are very close.”

“The boys are doing well? ”Asked Letterman.

“Very well,” said Jaden.

Jaden did not have the best relationship with Willow Smith at the time

While Jaden seemed to have a strong relationship with Trey at the time, Jaden and Willow did not. “She bullies me a lot,” Jaden explained.

“If she’s younger than you, how does she run the show? ”Asked Letterman.

“‘Cause I’m not allowed to push,” Jaden said.

“When will they give the ban on pushing?” The man of the letter objected.

“I don’t know,” said Jaden. “I think she has to wait until she’s 18 so my parents won’t sue us. ”

After talking about Trey, Jaden doubled back to the conversation about Willow. After saying that he and Trey were close, Jaden said, “My sister and I are not that big.”

Willow and Jaden seem to be pretty close now – and we’re willing to bet they’re all tight with Trey too. From the outside looking in, the Smiths are pretty fragile. Although we are happy Jaden spoke a little truth when he was just a kid.
