Jaden Smith was reportedly paid over $3m (£1.79m) at the age of 10 for his role in The Karate Kid.

The son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith starred alongside Jackie Chan in the 2010 remake of the 1984 classic and received a seven-figure sum for his efforts, states TMZ.

The website claims to have obtained Jaden's contract for the film drawn up in June 2009, which details an upfront fee totalling $1 million (£598,000) and paid in two instalments.

He is also believed to have taken home a $2m (£1.19m) bonus after The Karate Kid passed the $150m mark at the worldwide box office. The action flick eventually grossed a total exceeding $350m.

Jaden, who is now 12, recently featured on Justin Bieber's single 'Never Say Never' and appeared in the 17-year-old's documentary of the same name.
