    Does Jaden Smith REALLY Have Only One Pair Of Shoes? An Investigation

    Or does Will Smith have no idea what he's talking about?

    In a recent interview with Esquire, Will Smith told the magazine that his son Jaden has only ONE pair of shoes:

    Will Smith: Jaden, my sixteen-year-old, he has one pair of shoes.

    Esquire: That's it?

    Will Smith: He has three pair of pants and he has five shirts.

    Esquire: Total?

    Will Smith: Total. He has refused to be a slave to money. I so respect that.

    The natural reaction here is "HEY! That can't be right."

    Conclusion:

    To Will Smith's credit it appears that Jaden has worn the same TWO pairs of shoes for the last year or so. But a quick sample from Getty Images showed us at least THIRTEEN pairs in the past four years.

    Will Smith is a liar, liar, pants on fire.

    OR he has no idea what he's talking about.

    THE END.
