Uprising actor Justice Smith is famous for his recurring role on Nickelodeon's 'The Thundermans.' His charm has won millions of hearts, making everyone want to be his girlfriend. 

However, Justice, who played the lead role of Ezekiel in Netflix's series 'The Get Down,' is often mistaken as the brother of the cast member, Jaden Smith.

So, let's clear up the confusion about Justice's parents' identity!

Justice Smith's Parents

Justice is on occasion identified as the son of Will Smith. He even had to clarify that the Hollywood star is not his dad. He tweeted on Twitter on 6 September 2016,

"Hey guys love u I'm not will smiths son if you come up to me telling me stories of "my father" I will have no idea what ur talking bout"

Then who is Justice Smith's parents? 

Well, his birth parents are far from the spotlight. Born in Orange County, California, as the fifth child of Wayne Smith and Duilia Setacci's nine children. Justice is the fifth of nine siblings.

He possesses a mixed ethnicity as he was born from the union of an African-American father and an Italian-French-Canadian mother.

The 'Paper Towns' actor's parents were singers. Justice revealed in an interview with Vulture that his mother always made a comment when he sang, so eventually, his interest in music decreased and diverted into acting. 

The 26-year-old is also always seen on social media expressing his love for his partner.

The news of Justice's dating surfaced after he shared a picture of himself with a girl named Raffaella. The photo uploaded on 25 June 2017 was taken during one of the couple's vacations and was quoted as "un an" meaning first anniversary in English.

In October 2017, Justice, who stands at the height of 5' 10" (1.78 m), attended an event with Raffaella and was photographed. He shared a picture clicked by Getty Images and thanked the site for making the couple look adorable.

Moreover, Justice showered love for his girlfriend when he shared a picture of the couple on Instagram and wished Raffaella on her 22nd birthday in April 2018. He further expressed a heartwarming message in the caption and proclaimed his love for the girlfriend. He wrote in the post,
