With a career spanning acting, producing, directing, singing, writing, and business, Jada Pinkett Smith has amassed a net worth of $50 million.
It is worth noting, however, that Jada’s wealth is mostly due to her marriage to Will Smith, one of the highest-paid performers of the last two decades.
Jada Pinkett Smith has amassed a fortune through her work in several fields, including acting, television, music, fashion, and children’s literature.
Jada visited Will Smith on the set of his 1990s series The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and the two eventually got married. Jada tried out to play Lisa Wilkes, his on-screen lover. Nia Long was cast in the part instead of Jada because the latter was deemed “too short.”
Separating from Sheree Fletcher in 1995 (although he had supposedly grown attracted to Jada before this but never acted on it), Will began dating Jada, and the two eventually tied the knot in 1997.
Will and Jada Smith’s kids, Jaden and Willow, are now grown up and both have made it big in the entertainment business like their famous parents. Trey Smith, Will’s kid from a previous relationship, considers Jada his stepmother.
While Jada and Will were divorced in 2016, she revealed having an affair with musician August Alsina in July 2019.
