Will Smith Has Neglected His Son Trey for Years: Here’s How They Became Best Friends!

by Tracy Finke

Those who know Will Smith, an actor, and singer, know that he has two children, Jayden and Willow. However, few of them know that this talented actor has a 27-year-old son, Trey Smith.

Famous actor and singer Will Smith is 51, and it is not a secret that he has one failed marriage behind him and a son Trey.
In 1992, when Smith was 24, he married Sheree Zampino. Their son, Trey Smith, was born the same year on November 11th. The couple divorced three years later.

The Smith family lives a somewhat strange life. Jade Smith runs a show where she talks openly with her children and husband about all the family issues the couple is facing.

In one of those shows, Will described the moment he met his current wife, Jade. He was still married to Sheree at the time, and as he says, he knew he was married to the wrong person, but also that he would never divorce. However, his then-wife decided to divorce, and they did.

Will Smith admitted that his biggest failure was that his first son felt rejected after the divorce.

“You can’t really fix everything when you just spend the weekend with your kid,” Will Smith said at the time. However, the actor promised to spend the rest of his life trying to make up for lost time with his son.

Every time I post a picture of you, a few people will put themselves up for adoption regardless of their age, wish you were their dad, or my personal favorite, call you a national treasure and ask that we protect you at all cost. I’ll start by saying, I agree with ALL of their sentiments. What they may not know, is that you treat your family like we are the national treasure’s national treasure. You find a way to give all of us our individual moment while still sharing your beautiful soul with our global family. I’m not sure how you do it, but I am forever grateful that you’re so damn good at it. Happy Father’s Day to the greatest father the heavens could manufacture. ??‍♂️ love you Dad! Drop a ??‍♂️ if you love @willsmith #FathersDay #WillPower #Family

It seems Smith was successful in fulfilling his promise. His son Trey recently told him: “You know what, Dad? I realized that you were not only my dad, but I’m pretty sure you are my best friend too!”

Will Smith once wrote on Instagram about their relationship: “We struggled for years after mu divorce from his mother. He felt betrayed and abandoned. It is a wild blessing to recover and restore a loving relationship with my beautiful son!”

Trey Smith followed his father’s footsteps, so he is in the entertainment business also – he is a DJ. Trey Smith is also quite active on social media and is happy to post family photos of his mother and stepmother.
