The story of Jaden Smith’s suicide has been doing the rounds on social media recently and people want to know if the news is true. Is Will Smith’s legacy going to die with Jaden Smith?
People who are freaking out and sending in a torrent of prayers and condolences to his parents can relax now because the news is a complete hoax. Jaden Smith is alive and apparently set to appear on the cover of some of the top magazines in the world!
The fraudsters who are coming up with such ridiculous stories on Facebook are only looking for a payday and nothing else.
Selling fake death hoaxes under the brand names of CNN and TMZ is just a cheap ploy to make people click on the bogus news link that directs them to an advertisement page for some shady apps, reported The Hollywood Gossip.
The biggest prove of the young star of “The Karate Kid” being far from dead is the fact that he is still posting and tweeting on his official social media pages and the fact that he just appeared in an exclusive interview for GQ (and we are pretty sure that GQ does not feature ghosts on their cover)!

Still, don’t believe that the young lad is alive and well? You can soon watch him in a movie called “The Get Down”, where he plays “psychedelically talented and enigmatic graffiti writer” named Marcus “Dizzee” Kipling.
