Jaden is Will and Jada Pinkett's second child. Willow, 21, and Trey, his half-brother, are his siblings. The actor's parents had previously expressed concern about his weight, with both stars believing he was "wasting away."

Jada and Will 'realized he wasn't getting enough protein, he was wasting away' in late 2019. Jada had stated that Jaden 'just looked drained, he was just depleted, he wasn't getting the nutrients' he needed, while Will said he was 'nervous' because his son's complexion had a 'greyness' to it and he could always see 'dark circles' beneath his eyes. After photographs of Jaden looking extremely thin went viral and his parents intervened, the actor decided to take matters into his own hands and attempt to gain weight and improve his health.

Jaden claimed in December that he had gained 10 pounds since the beginning of the year and is focused on 'putting on muscle.' "I was able to work with the doctors and really get my vitamins, supplements, and protein shakes," he stated on Jada's Facebook show, Red Table Talk. "That’s half of my diet. It’s like a password that I have to find to my body."

"I feel like I'm keeping my weight. I’m able to put on my muscle." he continued. Jaden said that he's 'a long way' from where he was and how he appeared at Coachella in April. "I just was just, like, bones," he explained. "I thought I was so tight! I was like, 'This. I’m swagging on this. Like, I need to take off my shirt right now.'"

"I was just eating, like, two meals a day… maybe one," the rapper continued. "Maybe just that one big meal and I’m like, 'Oh, you know, I didn’t get around to it,'" he said. He discovered he was losing out on a lot of the nutrients his body needed after chatting with his parents and medical professionals.
