Justice Smith Is Not Related to Will Smith & Nor Is He A Nepo Baby

The record is crystal clear

Key Takeaways

  • Justice has confirmed that he and Will Smith are not related.
  • Since netizens assumed Justice to be related to Will, he was accused of being a nepo baby.
  • A look at their separate family background shows just how unconnected the two actors truly are.

For years, rumors have swirled that actor Justice Smith is the son of famous Hollywood star Will Smith.

The speculation seems understandable at first glance – they share the same last name, and the two actors have some physical similarities.

However, Justice has confirmed that he and Will are not related.

Since netizens assumed Justice to be related to Will, he was accused of being a nepo baby.

The nepotism assumptions got so out of hand that Justice had to directly address them during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2021.

“There was this video essay that I saw here someone was like, ‘Justice Smith, he’s banking off of nepotism. He didn’t work for anything that he has.’ Who do they think my father is? Then I realized it was Will Smith.”

Justice Smith

Justice even went so far as to put “not Will Smith’s son” in his X (formerly Twitter) bio to clear up the constant case of mistaken paternity.

The record is crystal clear—Justice Smith and Will Smith are not related at all, nor are they father and son.

A look at their separate family background shows just how unconnected the two actors truly are.

Justice Smith was born Justice Eilo Smith on August 9, 1995, in Los Angeles to parents Duilia Setacci, a singer, and Wayne Smith, a businessman.

He has three brothers and four sisters.

Meanwhile, Will Smith has been married to wife Jada Pinkett Smith since 1997.

His three children are sons Jaden and Trey (from a previous marriage to Sheree Zampino) and daughter Willow with Jada.

So, while the “Smiths” may share a familiar surname, Justice and Will simply do not share any direct family relation.

Justice has worked hard to pave his own path in Hollywood, separate from the long shadow cast by Will’s superstardom.

The constant merging of their identities has been an understandable source of frustration for the rising young star.

In Case You Didn’t Know

  • Will Smith is the son of Willard Carrol Smith Sr. and Caroline Bright.
  • Will has three siblings: one older sister, Pamela, and twin siblings, Harry and Ellen.
  • Justice’s mother, Duilia Setacci, named him ‘Justice‘ because she thought it would be funny.
