Jaden Smith is a strange character.
The son of Will and Jada Smith is taking his perpetually perplexing celebrity offspring game to new heights in recent months.
He's receiving plenty of attention as a result.
So perhaps it should come as no surprise that Jaden passed a "famous in his own right" milestone over the weekend:
He became the subject of a death hoax.
Yes, reports that Jaden had committed suicide surfaced in late July, then went viral and were everywhere on Friday and Saturday.
While the whole thing was a bit morbid, it's something that Jaden can hang his hat on as an indication that he's arrived.
From Chloe Grace Moretz to Pawn Stars favorite Chumlee, every A-lister and whatever the hell Chumlee is has been the subject of an unwarranted rumor about his or her death.
Now Jaden has officially joined the ranks of Hollywood's top actors, musicians, and Chumlees with reported that he killed himself following a breakup with longtime girlfriend Sarah Snyder.
Thankfully, we know that Jaden is still alive and well.
What about his relationship, though?
Well, Ms. Snyder added fuel to the rumor fire by making all of her social media accounts private over the weekend, but we now have confirmation that she and Jaden are definitely still an item.
The young couple was spotted out and about in NYC - fittingly enough for the New York premiere of Suicide Squad.
Prior to putting a lid on her Instagram and Twitter accounts, Sarah raised eyebrows with a caption reading:
“When your little ex is salty. You’re in love with your man. Btw, thanks for the flowers baby.”
Despite that apparent diss, sources close to Sarah and Jaden confirm that they're still a couple.
As for whether or not Snyder will wind up in jail before the year is out, well, that remains to be seen.
