While Jaden Smith and his family's allegiance went to Jordyn Woods during her cheating scandal with Khloe Kardashian's baby daddy Tristan Thompson, it doesn't seem like he is letting the drama get in the way of his career. On May 1, Showtime announced that the 20-year-old would be playing a young Kanye West in a new series. Scroll through for all the details.
As OK! readers know, Jordyn, 21, and Jaden, 20, have been close family friends for years.
Since then, the Girls Trip actress decided to unfollow Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian and Khloe, 34, on social media. Plus, Jordyn and her longtime BFF, Kylie Jenner, have not been seen publicly together and don't seem to be on talking terms.
So while things aren't exactly peachy between the Kardashians and Smiths, it doesn't seem to be affecting any future business ventures — at least for Jaden and Kanye, 41, that is!
The Karate Kid alum is set to star as a young version of the "Famous" rapper in a new Showtime series called Omniverse. The limited half-hour anthology show will examine aspects of perception.
While Kim, 38, who has been married to the Yeezy designer since 2014, has not commented on her husband's new project, it's likely she supports it. The E! star is known for being very protective of her sisters, but on April 2 she said "forgiveness is good" when asked about the cheating scandal.
