Jaden Smith seeking emancipation from parents
The 14-year-old son of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith is seeking emancipation from his parents.
For his fifteenth birthday, Jaden wants legal emancipation from his parents so he can live with the maturity and responsibility characteristic of all teenage boys.
In an interview with British newspaper The Sun, Will said, “I know if we do this, he can be an emancipated minor, because he really wants to have his own place.”
The “Parents Just Don’t Understand” rapper seems to be taking his son’s request in stride, but admits, “That’s the backlash. On the other side, if kids just want to have command of their lives, I understand.”
Father and son will be playing father and son in the new movie After Earth which hits cinemas on May 31st.
