Beyoncé’s nephew, Daniel Julez Smith, Jr., who is mostly referred to as Julez, has recently received some attention over the trending rumors of his relationship with actress and former Disney Channel star Skai Jackson. Smith, who is the son of artist Solange Knowles and her high school sweetheart, has largely remained out of the public spotlight with the exception of appearances in family photos and videos.

More recently, however, images surfaced from an alleged screenshot conversation where he allegedly detailed his relationship with Jackson and seemed to offer staunch criticism of his experience in the relationship. 

Smith, 16, has a face recognizable to many as one of the heirs to the Knowles legacy. Jackson, 18, is best known for her role on the Disney Channel show Jessie. The two, previously not captured on photos together, were rumored to be dating as a result of leaked groupchat messages where Smith was discussing their relationship.

The texts, allegedly written by Smith (as reported by Rap-Up), claim the two had a relationship, but she was unfaithful so he got revenge.
