We Are Not Father And Son: Justice Smith’s Twitter Bio Refuted Will Smith Related Rumors

The rumors were so intense that Justice had no choice but to deny their relationship rumors. Hilariously, he set his Twitter bio to not Will Smith’s son.

Speaking with Jimmy Kimmel on his late-night show, Justice revealed coming across a video essay accusing him of being a nepo baby. Upon closer look, he discovered the video assumed his dad was Will Smith.
