His parents stayed married for three years before divorcing.
The Net Worth of Trey Smith
How rich is Trey Smith? As of early-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is at $2 million, earned through success in his various endeavors. He’s gained a significant amount of wealth thanks to his father’s success, as Will Smith has an estimated net worth at $300 million. As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Education
Very little is known about Trey’s childhood despite the spotlight that has been shining on his father for most of his career. His parents divorced when he was three years old, and he later grew up with two half siblings in California, where he attended Oaks Christian School located in Westlake.
During this time, he was interested in and played a lot of American football, even with the son of the legendary Joe Montana. After matriculating from high school, he was offered an athletic scholarship by Northern Arizona University in 2011, but it’s not known if he followed through and enrolled at the university. His father and uncle later started a business named after him, called Treyball Development, however, few details have been shared about the business. Their website was eventually shut down, and there are no traces of the business continuing to operate.
Father – Will Smith
Will Smith is a rapper and actor, one of the most well-known actors in Hollywood, the recipient of four Grammy, two Academy, and five Golden Globe Awards. He began his rise to fame as a rapper called The Fresh Prince and earned a significant amount of fame through the television series “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”, which ran for six seasons. He then managed to successfully transition to film, becoming a part of numerous blockbuster films that elevated him to stardom.
As an actor, eight of his films consecutively grossed more than $100 million at the domestic box office – a record – and 11 films internationally and consecutively grossed over $150 million, so unsurprisingly he is ranked as the most bankable star worldwide by Forbes. Some of his most notable projects include “Ali” in which he portrayed famed boxer Muhammad Ali, and “The Pursuit of Happiness”. Other popular projects he’s worked on include “Bad Boys”, “Independence Day”, “Men in Black”, “I, Robot”, “I Am Legend”, and “Suicide Squad”. He is set to have one of the lead roles in the upcoming live action adaptation of “Aladdin”.
Stepmother – Jada Pinkett Smith
While Trey stayed close to his mother while growing up, but also spent a lot of time with his stepmother, his father’s second wife Jada Pinkett Smith. She is also a well-known actor who began her career in the 1990s, with some of her notable projects during this period including “The Nutty Professor”, “Scream 2”, and “Set It Off”. She worked alongside Will Smith in “Ali”, and a few of her most popular films during the 2000s were “The Matrix Reloaded” along with “The Matrix Revolutions”.
She is also known for voicing Gloria the hippopotamus in the numerous “Madagascar” animated films. A few of her recent projects include “Gotham”, “Hawthorne”, and “Bad Moms”. Similar to her husband, she also has a music career, and is a singer for the metal band called Wicked Wisdom. She also owns a production company alongside Will Smith, and has helped with the production of numerous films. She has also written a children’s book “Girls Hold Up This World”. She has two children with Will – Jaden and Willow Smith – who have also gained exposure in the entertainment industry thanks to their high profile parents.
For his personal life, not much is known about Trey’s romantic relationships; many sources state that he is single, and that he is the type of person who doesn’t share a lot of his personal endeavors with the media. In 2018, his father opened up about how Trey struggled with abandonment issues after his parents divorced. He mentioned that he is interested in acting and has had a few roles, in some of which he’s been seen working with his father. Some of the projects he’s worked on include “Will Smith: Just the Two of Us”, “The Speech”, and “All of Us”. He mentioned that some of his favorite actors include his father, stepmother, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Tom Cruise.
One of the reasons there is very little information about his past or present endeavors is due to the lack of any strong online presence. He doesn’t have any accounts on any major social media websites, preferring to keep to himself. He hasn’t actively pursued acting projects compared to his half-sibling, and there is no information regarding the projects he is currently working on. Time will tell if he resurfaces to actively become a part of the entertainment industry like his family.
