Will Smith Opens Up Relationship with Son Trey After They 'Struggled for Years'

Will Smith is getting honest about his relationship with his eldest child Trey.

In a recent Instagram post, the 50-year-old actor opened up about his relationship with his 26-year-old son and revealed that they wen through an extremely rough patch after Will and Trey‘s mom Sheree Zampino divorced back in 1995.

“I’m in Abu Dhabi at the F1 [Formula 1 Grande Prix]. I brought my son, Trey,” Will starts off in the post. “We’ve been hanging and I usually take my kids separately on stuff so they have their individual daddy time.”

Will then starts to get emotional when explaining, “So we’ve been doing this, hanging at the F1, and he said, ‘You know what dad? I just realized you’re not just my dad. I’m pretty sure you’re my best friend.’ I was like, [exhales], ‘Yeah man, prolly. Prolly.’”

“It has not always been like this between Trey & I. We STRUGGLED FOR YEARS after my Divorce from his Mother [actress Sheree Zampino],” Will captioned the video. “He felt betrayed & abandoned. It is a Wild Blessing to recover & restore a Loving Relationship with My Beautiful Son!”

Trey re-posted the video, writing, ““Awwwww shucks ♥️ you too big guy.”
