Amid the unending reports that Jade Smith is already dead, his father Will Smith has finally taken a move to finally put an end to the nasty rumors.
For quite a while now, the death hoax has been making headlines as more fans continue to be curious about the real status of the 18-year-old actor.
It can be noted that certain malicious reports have even alleged that the son of the 47-year-old “Men in Black” actor and 44-year-old Jada Pinkett Smith committed suicide.
To clarify these rumors, Will Smith made sure his son is seen by the public — healthy, well, and very much alive!
At the world premiere of “Suicide Squad” in New York City on Monday, the rumored dead Jaden Smith was spotted with his father.
As hinted by Daily Mail UK, the former co-star of Jackie Chan in “The Karate Kid” was surely a dead ringer of his father as their being look-alike can never be denied.
In the meantime, FX News Call reported that in the middle of the dead stories hurled at Jaden Smith, the star of the 2006 film “The Pursuit of Happyness” has been very active in social media lately, proving that he is still very alive and kicking.
The news site noted that following his “previous silence” on Instagram, the actor is now back in the loop reportedly posting a number of images.
Despite the actor being the victim of the death hoax, FX News Call revealed that there have been rumors saying that the issue could have just been a publicity stunt for him to gain public’s attention.
“While that could not be true, people are suspicious as the rumor mill only produced the news a few days before the premiere of the Netflix musical drama series ‘The Get Down,’ which Smith will be co-starring in,” the report stated.
