However, before the news spread, a Twitter post by the young rapper was suspected to have been the reason why he did such thing. Many people believed that these messages were referring to the possible divorce of his parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith.
Depression is one of the most common reasons why a person like Jaden Smith is tempted to commit suicide. Some celebrities might look happy and contented with their lives but no one can deny the fact that they are also experiencing difficulties like normal people.
Christopher Rogers of Hollywood Life confirmed that Jaden Smith is alive, accusing some media outlets of sharing the false news. It was reported that the young rapper and his girlfriend Sarah Snyder were seen together on September 10.
The rumors about the death of Jaden Smith still continue to circulate on the web even after a month. Unfortunately, there were some people who believed that the rapper is really dead without finding any confirmation from trusted news sites.
Smith was not only the celebrity who was victimized by death hoax as stars like Miley Cyrus and Sylvester Stallone also experienced the same thing. Most of this false news came from satire sites that make people believe that what they are telling are all facts.
Unfortunately, there are still some people who do not knowledgeable that they continue to share such information without confirmation. As of now, it is safe to say that Jaden Smith’s death is not true.
