Jaden Smith death rumors spread on the Internet like wildfire. He’s been rumored to commit suicide after attending a concert together with Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth and Brandi.
But that’s nothing new to celebrity life, not unlike what Sylvester Stallone, Angelina Jolie, and Jacky Chan had experienced. In fact, this is one of the manifestations of his success.
For that, the actor himself receives those Jaden Smith death rumors as sort of a “badge of honor.”
According to a report by Hollywood Life an insider to the story said, “Jaden is OK with the death hoax, because, to him, it shows that people actually care about him. He is using it as a badge of honor like you have not made it until you are involved in a death hoax.”
The only question that remains is how these theories could have come about in the first place.
One possibility that’s been opened up pertains to Jaden’s sexuality. It could be the way he dresses outside gender norms, sent off the wrong impression that the actor is gay.
But for that Jaden Smith, in an interview with Yahoo! Style said, “[The clothing line is for] the girl that wants to be a tomboy or the boy that wants to wear a skirt, and people try to condemn. We’re here for you. Tell us your stories. If someone at your school’s trying to pick on you, it doesn’t matter because Jaden Smith’s got your back.”

Coincidentally, Will Smith also had his share of gay rumors after he was said to be in a secret relationship with his long-time friend Duane Martin. It started after the Martins declared bankruptcy, yet failed to surrender their laptop to a court that’s said to contain very personal photographs and documents that allegedly reveals the true nature of their relationship.
Will Smith was accused of paying a whopping $2 million as the cover up money.
Like father, like son. Gay rumors mar Will Smith son, as the theory follows that this could have sparked his depression, contrary to his gf Sarah Snyder’s infidelity, that pushes the young star to commit suicide.
