Jayden Smith Spotted With a Tesla Model X Before (Almost) Everyone Else
Being the offspring of a Hollywood great has to be difficult. We don’t mean difficult in terms of going to the best schools or having all the latest swag. We mean such a parental dynamic means the kid doesn’t always end up as the most well-developed member of society. But it certainly has its perks. Enter Jayden Smith. The son of the famous Will Smith, Jayden, is a bit, um, off. He considers himself a prophet and generally dresses like a millennial-hipster Milli Vanilli. Say what we will about him, but he’s driving an all-new Tesla Model X, and we’re not. RELATED: See more images of the 2016 Tesla Model X SUV
Regardless of who it actually is at the wheel, seeing anyone with a set of keys to the Model X right now is a bit eyebrow-raising. The all-electric crossover has been delayed for a year, and a whole host of buyers who have already plunked down deposits are still waiting for their Model X. So for it to be the 17-year-old Smith to beat many owners to the punch–that’s got to annoy a few still-waiting buyers.

According to TMZ, Smith was proud of his purchase, or just wanted to be weird, because he posed for the paparazzi when he was spotted in the new whip. Sure, he stays out of trouble and doesn’t seem like a bad person, but he certainly comes off as insufferable. We have to wonder what Elon Musk thinks of Smith being one of the first celebs to be spotted out in public with one of his vehicles. Any publicity is good publicity?
Smith is technically not the first to own a Model X. Sources indicate at least three LA area customers have already received their all-electric SUV. But Smith is the first celeb we've seen out and about with the new Tesla.
