When we talk about leading men in Hollywood, one cannot not talk about Will Smith. Throughout his career in the film industry, the actor has starred in a plethora of films and shows. Apart from an incredibly successful career in the film industry, he also has an incredibly adorable and loving family. The actor has three kids who also enjoy successful careers of their own. While Jaden and Willow Smith have often been in the limelight, not much is known about Trey Smith. And as surprising as it sounds, the actor shares a peculiar bond with his eldest son.

Will Smith has established an image of being all about his family and has championed them whenever he has a chance. While his relationship with Jada Pinkett-Smith and their two kids is well known, his dynamics with his eldest son Trey Smith are less explored. The Emancipation actor has Trey with his first wife, Sheree Zampino. However, their bond was never the typical father-son relationship. The duo has had a very complex relationship throughout the years. It got more complicated following the actor’s divorce from Zampino after being together for nearly three years.

Interestingly, during the early days when the actor was more popular for his rap career, Trey even made an appearance on his father’s 1998 music video for Just the Two of Us.

Interestingly, as years went on by the actor distanced himself from Zampino and his son Trey. It was not until Pinkett-Smith’s intervention that the actor finally rekindled his relationship with Trey. The duo eventually grew together and share an adorable relationship as of late.
