When Jaden Smith isn’t singing his heart out in the studio and on stage, making bold fashion statements, or preparing for movie roles, he’s known to be quite the heartthrob.
Over the course of his high-profile career, Jaden has shared his life with around 8 people.
It all started in 2010, when rumors of him and The Game Plan star Maddison Pettis took the internet by storm. While fans and followers of both individuals were nothing but excited, they were met with bad news as their relationship was short lived and ended just a year after the pair linked up.
In late 2011, Jaden gave love another chance when he placed his trust in Stella Hudgens, American actress mostly known for being the younger sibling of Vanessa Hudgens, American actress who starred in High School Musical. While the pair undoubtedly had a memorable time, Jaden Smith found himself in the same scenario yet again in 2012, when the couple called it quits.
Between the years 2012 and 2014, Jaden Smith devoted his loyalty to Sofia Ritchie, American model, fashion designer, and daughter of Lionel Ritchie. They were spotted having dinner on multiple occasions from 2012 and 2013, but reportedly called it quits before reconciling on July 4th, 2014. However, due to irreconcilable differences, the pair parted ways for good in August of that year.
For a brief period of time, Jaden also sparked rumors for being linked to Kylie Jenner. While the pair is said to be friends to this day, they were labeled as more than friends during 2014, until one of the partners got involved in acts of infidelity.
Furthemore, in 2015, Jaden was rumored to be linked with Amandla Steinberg, actress and singer, widely recognized for her influential role in the “The Hunger Games” franchise. While it was never confirmed whether the pair did get together or not, we might as well consider her to be one of the many exes of Jaden’s due to the compelling rumors that were created.
Additionally, from 2015 to 2017, Jaden was in a serious relationship with Sarah Snyder. While the two kept things incredibly private, the two were regularly seen together, and made their official debut at New York Fashion Week 2015.

In 2018, Jaden Smith was seen strolling Coachella with actress Odessa Adlon. The pair remained a couple throughout that year and even went to prom together. In late 2018, the Grammy nominee and actress reportedly split due to reasons unknown.
In November 2018, Jaden created another buzz on social media when he expressed his love and gratitude for Tyler, the Creator, 2 time Grammy Award winner and influential rapper. He also confessed how Tyler was his “boyfriend” at the time during his performance, which not only caught us off guard, but also came as a surprise to his family members. Despite the flattering move of Jaden’s, Tyler The Creator revealed in an interview that they were nothing but friends and they NEVER DATED.
As of 2021, Jaden Smith has been dating Sab Zada, model and Instagram star. The couple regularly show appreciation for one another on social media, and were also seen in each other’s company at Coachella, 2022.

However, one more thing was added to their plate, when a clip from an old interview of Jaden Smith’s resurfaced on the web. It was re-released a few weeks ago, and was met with unfavorable responses in an instant.
In the interview, Jaden was talking about how relieved he was to have a different childhood and be in the company of relatively older people as opposed to people of his age at the time. “I’m very happy that I spent my childhood with more adults than I did with kids my own age”, he stated.
He then proceeded to make fun of people of his age due to their lack of awareness regarding the “political” and “economic” state of the world, which was met with a substantial amount of rage on the internet. Not only did fans call him out for being a child of nepotism, but his vocabulary when making each statement also managed to turn him into a meme, a movement that is still going strong as of mid-June, 2022.
