Smith’s career started out by forming the rap group ‘DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince’ with his friend Jeffrey Townes in the 80’s. They had several famous hits, including ‘Summertime’ and ‘Parents Just, Don’t Understand’.
The problem came when Will started spending a lot of money and ended racking up a tax debt of $2.8 million. The IRS took various possessions of Smith’s, and it was at that time he was approached about the making of the sitcom ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’.
Needing money, and open to trying new things, Smith accepted the opportunity, and the show was a huge success. For a short while, 25% of his pay-cheque from the show was going straight to the IRS.
After appearing in the show, he starred in several films in the ’90s, including Six Degrees of Separation, Bad Boys, Men in Black and Enemy of the State.
Since then, Will Smith has broken acting records, appeared in some of the most successful films worldwide, and has become one of the highest-paid actors in the world.

Will Smith Net Worth
Will Smith Net Worth from Real Estate: In 1999 Will and Jada spent $7.5 million to acquire a stunning 100-acre property in the hills between Malibu and Calabasas, California. Over the next year, they bought several nearby parcels to string together 150-acres of contiguous land.
The property features 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.
They designed the property in a Santa Fe style after falling in love with actor Gene Hackman’s Santa Fe home. They actually hired Hackman’s Santa Fe architect for the project which took years to kick-off due to environmental concerns and permit restrictions.
In 2013 they quietly listed the property for $42 million but did not find a buyer. Today this property alone is likely worth $50 – $70 million.
In 2017 Will and Jada sold their 7-acre oceanfront compound in Kauai for $12 million. They bought the multi-home property in 2015 for $10 million.
In 2011 they sold a different oceanfront Hawaiian property on 7-acres for $20 million to Ekaterina Rybolovlev, the daughter of billionaire Russian oligarch Dmitry Rybolovlev for $20 million.
