Jaden Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith haven’t always had the best mother-son relationship.
While Jada’s beautiful features are clearly present in her son’s appearance, Jaden hasn’t always taken kindly to his mother and father Will Smith’s parenting style.
The couple’s open relationship also seems to have taken a toll on Jaden.
It all came to a boiling point in the young man’s teenage years, during which he made a startling announcement.
