American actress, producer, director, singer, writer, and businesswoman Jada Pinkett Smith has a net worth of $50 million. Though it should be said that a big part of Jada’s net worth comes from her marriage to Will Smith, who has been one of the highest-paid actors of the last 20 years. Jada Pinkett Smith has worked in film, TV, music, fashion, and writing children’s books to build up her net worth.
Early Years of Jada
She was born on September 18, 1971, in Baltimore, Maryland. Her mother, Adrienne Bandfield-Jones, was a nurse, and her father, Rosbol Pinkett Jr., ran a construction business. Adrienne had Jada while she was still in high school. She and her boyfriend quickly got married, and Adrienne was left to raise Jada with only help from her mother, Marion Martin Banfield.
Jada’s grandmother immediately saw that Jada was good at performing, so she signed her up for dance and piano lessons. She went to the Baltimore School for the Arts, where she studied dance and theatre as her main subjects. Jada graduated in 1989. One of Jada’s classmates at this school was the rap star Tupac Shakur. They would be friends for life, even after his sad death.
Career of Jada
After Jada moved to Los Angeles in the early 1990s, she started getting small roles on TV shows like “True Colors,” “Doogie Howser, MD,” and “21 Jump Street.” She soon got a role on the sitcom “A Different World” that would last for 36 episodes. “Menace II Society,” from 1993, was the movie that gave her a big break. She was in “A Low Down Dirty Shame” with Keenen Ivory Wayans in 1994. Her performance in the movie got her a lot of attention and good reviews. In the same year, she was in the romantic drama “Jason’s Lyrics.” In 1995, she played a prisoner in “Demon Knight.” Roger Ebert liked how well Pinkett Smith and her co-star Allen Payne worked together.
In 1996, Jada’s big break came when she played Eddie Murphy’s love interest in a remake of “The Nutty Professor” in which they both starred. The movie made $25 million in its first weekend and more than $274 million all over the world, making it a huge business success. “The Nutty Professor” was the start of a very successful and lucrative career for Jada. She went on to star in movies like “Kingdom Come,” had a cameo in “Scream 2,” and was in two very popular and successful “Matrix” movies.
She won an Image Award in 2010 for being the best actress in a drama series for her role as Christina Hawthorne in “Hawthorne,” which ran from 2009 to 2011. In 2014, she started playing Fish Mooney on the TV show “Gotham.” In the animated “Madagascar” movie series, Gloria was voiced by Jada Pinkett Smith. Jada has been the star of the Facebook Watch show “Red Table Talk” since 2018.
Real Estate of Jada
Will and Jada have about 10 properties in the U.S. Here’s a short list of their most famous properties, both now and in the past.
Will and Jada bought a beautiful 100-acre property in the hills between Malibu and Calabasas, California, for $7.5 million in 1999. Over the next year, they bought a few nearby parcels to make 150 acres of land that was all connected. The property has a 20,000-square-foot main house, several guest houses, a private lake, a horse riding ring, equestrian trails, stables, tennis courts, and much more.
After falling in love with actor Gene Hackman’s Santa Fe home, they chose a Santa Fe style for their own home. They hired Hackman’s architect in Santa Fe to work on the project, which took years to start because of concerns about the environment and rules about getting permits. In 2013, they quietly put the property on the market for $42 million, but no one bought it. Today, this property is probably worth between $50 and $70 million by itself.
In 2017, Will and Jada sold their oceanfront property on Kauai, which was 7 acres and cost $12 million. In 2015, they paid $10 million for the property with several homes. In 2011, they sold Ekaterina Rybolovlev, the daughter of billionaire Russian oligarch Dmitry Rybolovlev, a different oceanfront Hawaiian property on 7 acres for $20 million.
They also own a 9,000-square-foot home in Hidden Hills, California, that is part of a gated community, as well as a 9,200-square-foot ski chalet in Park City, Utah.
Will and Jada bought a 10,400-square-foot home in Hidden Hills, California, for just over $11 million in September 2021. We know that the Smiths own at least $100 million worth of property all over the world.
