Jaden Smith’s behavior has a lot of fans worried about his mental state. Jaden posted an epic rant on his Instagram account that many critics are calling either an existential crisis or a teenage meltdown. The 18-year-old son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith said in his bizarre video meltdown that he’s leaving Los Angeles. He claims that ‘bad things’ are happening in the City of Angels and that adults apparently aren’t supporting youth creativity.
Jaden said in his Live Instagram post, “It’s going to be so funny to tell my dad that I’ve failed straight up. Everybody follow your heart, you know what I’m saying? Do exactly what you want to do, be who you want to be. I’m about to move out of LA. There’s a lot of bad things here. Create the life that you want for yourself. Don’t try to be somebody else. It’s hard these days to really create the life you want for yourself because there’s nobody really here that’s like supporting the youth or the youth’s creativity.”
Yet, many reports reveal the reason behind Jaden Smith’s epic meltdown: He flunked his driver’s test. Eyewitnesses say that he filmed himself while sitting in his car at a Department of Motor Vehicles center in Los Angeles.
This isn’t the first time Jaden has made headlines for his bizarre rants. Back in 2013, he encouraged his young fans to drop out of school. Last year, Will Smith went on the record to confess that he and his wife Jada might have made poor parenting choices with their kids. During an interview with BBC1 Radio, Will said that he made the mistake of giving his children Jaden and Willow too much freedom of expression and not enough rules. Could Jaden’s meltdown be the result of Will’s controversial parenting? That’s what fans want to know.
Will Smith has not made any comments about his son’s Instagram meltdown. Is Will upset about his son’s failure? Will Jaden end up moving from Los Angeles? No one knows for sure. Jaden even ended up deleting the embarrassing post from his Instagram account.
