Will Smith and Trey have an enviable father and son relationship. But their bond wasn’t always close-knit.
The 50-year-old actor revealed in a heartfelt Instagram video that he and his firstborn Trey Smith, 26, “struggled for years” after Will divorced his first wife and Trey’s mother, Sheree Zampino, in 1995.
“It has not always been like this between Trey & I,” Smith captioned a video with his son at the F1 in Abu Dhabi during their “individual daddy time.” He continued: “We struggled for years after my divorce from his mother. He felt betrayed & abandoned.”
However, as their numerous Instagrams together prove, they’ve not only managed to recover and restore their loving relationship, but have even become best friends.
