Jaden Smith is one rich kid.

The 12-year-old was paid somewhere in the seven figures to star in 2010's Karate Kid.

In his contract, it states that Jaden was initially paid $900,000 and then was later given an additional $100,000.

And because the movie was such a big hit, grossing over $150 million, he also received a $2 million bonus.

AND, Jaden likely received even more cash with other perks such as merchandising, DVD sales, etc…

The funny thing is that even though that seems like an extraordinary amount of dough for a kid, he still gets paid way less than mom, dad, and sis Willow.

Crazy. He'll probably be ruling the world by the time he's 20 or something…

    So that's why The Smiths pimp out their kids! Now I get it. They fuck upo their childrens childhood for the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. How precious.



  2. 2

    I hope this hasn't begun the rehab clock countdown for him, as these Smith kids haven't been allowed to grow & develop as kids.



  3. 3

    GREAT I'm glad to see that he made soooo much money now LETS TAX HIM!! I HOPE HE MAKES MORE WE'LL TAX THAT TOO !!!!



  4. 4

    The Satanic Illuminati owned Smith clan strikes gold again.

    Re: mattyvoyager – The Smith's don't need the money - I think they pimp out their kids because they are addicted to fame. But you're right, their childhoods are completely screwed.

    He needs a session with Joe Jackson.



  7. 7

    OH PLEASE MARIO! don't you think WILL AND JADA has pulled and paid so many strings to get their kids into what they have been IN? MORE THEN WHAT THE KIDS HAVE PULLED BACK IN! I would be truely surprised if they are famous when they are adults, UNLESS, MOMMY AND DADDY ARE BACKING THE MOVIE/SONG.



  8. 8

    He looks like he needs to be beat bad….lil asshole…so entitled



  9. 9

    Oh fuck up everyone not everyone is a child star grows up to be a hot mess. Leonardo dicaprio ever heard him do anything wrong? Not to mention others.



  10. 10

    Re: booboo1111 – Yes there are exceptions, but the vast majority of child stars end up a mess. ANd most of those who do well get educated - hopefully Will and Jada will encourage their kids to pursue higher education.



  11. 11

    why, since the original was better

    Re: rosebud99
    No stupid, they won't. They're Scientologists… do some research. The kids don't even attend school. They attend a Scientology school and probably sporadically (I believe Will built it with his $$ ). There is no curriculum and they learn nothing but L Ron Hubbart insanity.
    They should be jailed for withholding education from those kids.
    Look up ex Scientologists and read/watch video of all their experiences regarding "school".
    Evil cult, it is.

    Re: D-INCARNATION – ha ha ha h a!!!!



  14. 14

    It's also very important for these folks to earn a lot of $$ because they donate a tremendous amount to their Scientology cult.
    Fools.



  15. 15

    Mommy and daddy bought the movie script, rights, etc…mommy and daddy bought Willow her horrible song…mommy and daddy have bought their futures for them. They don't have to have real talent with mommy and daddy's $$$ backing them all the way. SAD they weren't allowed to find their own way.



  16. 16

    rule the world by the time he's 20? More like have a dozen DUI's and publicized OD's to his name by the time he's 20, at this rate.



  17. 17

    Does it really matter? These kids are part of something we would never understand. The fact is that they've already fucked up their kids careers by pimping them out so early and they're plain hateful. How that movie made that much money I'll never know but I do know that the majority of people find them a little hateful, like their Mother. Honestly, we only like Will. Hollywood needs to find creative, hopeful, outstanding writers and creators. There's no vision and all they do is re-create and dig hard with past movies to keep it going.



  18. 18

    BTW, in the scope of things…..this is just a kid that is living in his environment, he doesn't have a chance (or a choice). I will bet anything that this is all opportunistic Jaeda.



  19. 19

    Unbelieavble for this hack of a kid.
    Nepotism is ruining Hollywood.



  20. 20

    I hope this kid (and the rest of his family) gets away from the Evil $pace Alien Mind Control $cilon CULT.
    Otherwise, money or no money, he is screwed.



  21. 21

    He's kind of Creepy



  22. 22

    People study and take classes for years. Actors who believe in their craft and would take any job, and this punk ass kid rubs their faces in it.



  23. 23

    what a joke no kid in his right mind should be allowed this much money, this kid provides nothing to the growth or well-being of this society

  24. @v@ says – reply to this

    Re: Frank Bambace – Them that has, gets. If they didn't, you know someone else would. To think people have a problem with the royals.



  25. 25

    Great. Now here's another American kid who will have no use for college.
    Hollywood–they eat their own out there.



  26. 26

    Good for him… He's part of the lucky sperm club.



  27. 27

    Re: kellyfox – What? Do you work for the IRS?



  28. 28

    Re: Meggie246624 – And how would you know this, oh wise one?



  29. 29

    Re: rosebud99 – I doubt it, neither Jada or Will graduated from college.



  30. 30

    Re: Frank Bambace – Many great actors have never taken a single acting class. Your point is nul.

    Re: caroaber – He's already banked more here than most college graduates will manage in an entire lifetime. There's more than one way to skin a cat. School is important, imo, but look at the allowance he just hauled in.



  32. 32

    if he is a scientologist? then a percentage of his earnings would go to scientology.



  33. 33

    I really don't understand why there is so much hate for the Smith kids, and not every other child in the limelight. Unlike Demi and Linsey Lohan, these kids are filthy rich to begin with. Will is one of the biggest blockbuster stars of our time, he doesn't need to "pimp" his children. Not every childhood is the same, and who's to say that theirs isn't fantastic? I think it's jealousy.



  34. 34

    Rule the world? Nepotism is hardly an actual achievement.



  35. 35

    DIDNT THEY PRODUCE THE MOVIE



  36. 36

    Like most negros he will probably be dead or in jail by 20.



  37. 37

    Re: rosebud99 – Eh, you'd be surprised. Money's the reason why Will got his Fresh Prince gig in the first place. Apparently he had been too busy spending it all on random cars, and clothing. He was practically bankrupt, and the IRS had seize many of his posessions, and garnish his wages. Even though he was still young when all of that happened, I doubt that his ways have changed but so much. Look at his wife- do you EVER see her without a shopping bag in her hand?? And Willow- she's got more stylists and clothing designers than she has school teachers. Yes, they may make a lot, but I'm sure they still spend a lot, as well.

    The positive side of this is that, unlike other child stars, he isn't supporting his family. This can be rightfully put aside for him in a trust, while his parents earn far more than that on their own to support their family.
