Will Smith opens up relationships with his eldest son: ‘He felt betrayed and forsaken’
At the beginning of Will Smith’s career, when he was in the “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air”, he got his first son, Trey Smith, whom the few may know.
Now Will Smith opens and says that he and his son had a strained relationship with each other for many years.
Will Smith got her son, who is 26 years old, together with her first wife, Sheree Zampin. The couple got married in 1992 and divorced again three years later.
And just divorce seems to be the focal point of why Will Smith and his eldest son went skewed apart and had a bad relationship for several years.
The 50-year-old star posted a picture on his Instagram profile on Tuesday, where you can see him and his son Trey Smith sit smiling at each other side by side.
Here, Will Smith speaks openly about their relationships and feelings.
“It has not always been like this between Trey and I. We have fought for years after my divorce with his mother. He felt betrayed and left behind. It’s a huge blessing to restore a loving relationship with my beautiful son, “writes Will Smith on his Instagram.
When you press the picture, Will Smith’s movie starts in a robe that tells him he has taken his son to Abu Dhabi, where the two hang out and have some son-in-law.
He tells what the son had said to him:
“He said,” Do you know what Dad, it just happened to me: You’re not just my dad, I’m sure you’re my best friend. ”
Will Smith looks up at the ceiling with his naked eyes while he is deeply exhaling and says,
“You’re probably right, you’re probably right.”

Change isn’t always easy…Especially when it’s not on your terms. But change is necessary for growth. Even if I didn’t know it then. I’ve always been surrounded by love. But there’s hidden context in this photo. When I look at it, everything falls into place… @shereezampino @jadapinkettsmith @c.syresmith @willowsmith #AcENation #InMyThoughts #blessed #family #TheSmiths
That the two have restored and built a strong bond now is not to be mistaken.
During the last three days, Trey Smith has posted five entries on his Instagram with his father.
He has also put up a childhood image in which he is sitting in the middle between his mother, his father’s new wife, Jada Smith, and their two children, his half-sister, Willow, and Jaden Smith. He writes:
‘Change is not always easy. Especially when it’s not on your own terms. But change is necessary in order to grow. Even if I did not know it then. I have always been surrounded by love. ”
