Will Smith Gets Real About His Relationship with His Oldest Son.

It wasn’t always sunshine and rainbows between Will Smith and his son Trey, he revealed in the caption of a recent Instagram video. In fact, Will Smith says they “struggled for years” after he divorced his mother. “He felt betrayed & abandoned,” he added.

In the video, Will talks to his followers from Abu Dhabi, where he’s relaxing in his hotel room and reflecting on his relationship with Trey.

“So I’m in Abu Dhabi at the F1,” he begins. “I brought my son Trey. We been hanging and usually I take my kids separately on stuff just so they have their individual daddy time.”

He continued, “So we been doing this, me and him hanging out at the F1. And he just hit me with, ‘You know what dad? I just realized you’re not just my dad.’ He paused and he said, ‘I’m pretty sure you’re my best friend.’”

Will pauses as he becomes emotional and goes on to say, “I was like, ‘Whoo. Yeah, man. Probably. Probably.”
