The trio of Trey, Jaden, and Willow Smith may not be as accomplished as their famous father yet, but they are already showing signs of living up to and even surpassing his legacies someday. Will Smith‘s children had an unconventional childhood which came with several challenges despite their enormous wealth. They were able to come through though and are now popular personalities in their own right. While Willow and Jaden are busy making their impact in the movie and music business, Trey has a few TV credits to his name and is also a budding DJ. The trio now have handsome individual fortunes but they still have some way to go before they can catch up with their famous dad.
Jaden Smith is Richer Than His Sister and Half-Brother
Growing up in the spotlight can have adverse effects but the Smith children have coped with this relatively well and have gone on to build impressive careers for themselves in showbiz. They have also amassed significant riches in the process though to varying degrees. The third richest amongst all three siblings is Trey Smith with a net worth of $2 million. Trey got his first taste of showbiz by featuring in the music video of his father’s 1998 song, “Just The Two of Us”. By 2003, he scored some episodes on the TV series, All of Us, and five years later, featured in a short film titled The Speech.
Trey’s acting career has since fizzled out but he isn’t too pained as he is now a budding DJ and music producer. Working under the moniker AcE, Trey has thrilled audiences from California to Dubai with his ingenious mix of a diverse array of sounds, originals, edits, and remixes. He has also deejayed at several Hollywood events, including the Vanity Fair pre-Oscars bash. Trey is also additionally a producer and has created beats for the likes of Kelly Rowland. All this now accounts for his $2 million net worth and while this is impressive, it is trumped by his half-sister, Willow, who is worth at least $6 million.
Just like Trey, Willow got her career start thanks to their dad who featured her in his 2007 film, I Am Legend. She then went on to feature in the 2008 comedy-drama, Kit Kittredge: An American Girl, before lending her voice to the popular animation film, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, that same year. Willow Smith remains an actress to date but what is occupying her attention the most is her music career. The young lady made quite the splash with her debut single, “Whip My Hair”, in 2010. The song made it to No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 1 on the official singles charts in the U.K. It sold one million copies in the US alone and was certified platinum.
Willow has not been able to reach such heights again but she has dropped about three studio albums. She also had a lucrative side gig co-hosting the TV show, Red Table Talk, with her mom and her grandmom. All this has helped her amass a net worth of $6 million. It is, however, not enough to crown her as the richest of all Will Smith’s children. Her older brother Jaden takes that title with his $8 million fortune.
Jaden Smith has a thriving career as an actor and singer. He has featured in several popular movies over the years, including The Pursuit of Happyness, The Day the Earth Stood Still, and After Earth. He also played the lead role in the 2010 blockbuster martial arts film, Karate Kid. The movie performed marvelously at the box office, grossing $359.1 million on a budget of $40 million, and Jaden walked away with a huge payday. He was paid $1 million as his upfront salary. He then received another additional $2 million as a result of back-end deals and other contract perks.
Jaden’s movie career has also slowed down as he is committed to taking only roles that make sense to him. He has now shifted his sights to the music and fashion world which he has both conquered. As a musician, Jaden Smith has collaborated with the likes of Justin Bieber and has dropped about three studio albums. In the fashion industry, he has founded several clothing brands, including MSFTSrep, and modeled for the likes of Louis Vuitton.
Will Smith’s Family is Worth a Combined $386 Million
The trio of Trey, Jaden, and Willow Smith have certainly achieved handsome fortunes but their wealth is dwarfed by that of the matriarch of the Smith family. Jada Pinkett Smith is worth about $20 million and this is thanks to her exploits in music, movies, and TV show hosting. Jada has featured in several movies over the years, including The Nutty Professor, Gotham, and The Matrix Reloaded. She also delved into music at some point and dropped an album with her heavy metal band, Wicked Wisdom. Jada has since founded and invested in several businesses, including a fashion line and a beauty line. She most recently began serving as the host of the talk show, Red Table Talk, a role that possibly pays her millions seeing how popular it has become.
But the person that contributes the lion’s share of the Smith’s family net worth is Will Smith himself. The rapper-turned-actor has managed to remain one of the most relevant stars in Hollywood and still pockets big salaries. He reportedly received $12.5 for the movies Aladdin and Gemini Man apiece. He also got $20 million for the 2021 film, King Richard, and $27 million for the 2017 Netflix film, Bright. Will has also invested in companies (Uber inclusive) and has several businesses of his own, including a sustainable water company known as Just Water.
Trey is The Oldest of Will Smith’s Three Children
Trey Smith is Will’s eldest child. Born Willard Carroll III on the 11th of November 1992, the 30 year old’s mother is Sheree Zampino. Zampino and Smith were married for three years before divorcing in 1995. While the two adults went their separate ways, Will made an effort to remain present in his eldest child’s life. Those efforts later fell short and things became strained between him and his eldest child with the boy feeling betrayed and abandoned. That situation persisted for some years but Will Smith later made an effort to reconnect with his son.
Father and son now enjoy a close relationship and this has also positively influenced the relationship that Trey has with his two younger siblings; Jaden and Willow. Full name, Jaden Christopher Syre, Jaden was born on the 8th of July 1998 which makes him six years younger than his older half-brother. The 24 year old is two years older than his sister, Willow Camille Reign, who was born on the 31st day of October 2000 and is 22 years old. Smith’s youngest child is eight years younger than Trey.
