Jaden Smith to be emancipated? Not so fast, says Will
Jaden Smith's dreams of being emancipated have been squashed. The 14-year-old and his father, Will Smith, explain why he'll be at home for a long time to come.
Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday, the acting duo shot down speculation that Will Smith admits he set into motion.
"See, here's the thing that you need to understand: I’m not going anywhere," Jaden, seen here with younger sister, Willow Smith, began. "The thing that people don’t get is everything at this house is free! So I can get anything and everything at his house, so I’m going to be there 20, 30 more years."
His father then chimed in to explain, "I think I made a joke in Tokyo. I mean… my baby boy, he’s never leaving me, ever. No emancipation for the Smith kids."
"He says, 'Dad, I want to be emancipated,'" The Sun previously quoted the 44-year-old as saying. "I know if we do this, he can be an emancipated minor, because he really wants to have his own place, like ooh. That's the backlash. On the other side, if kids just want to have command of their lives, I understand."
Jaden Smith added jokingly of his father's rules for leaving the house someday in the none-too-near future, "He says as soon as I have a movie that’s bigger than one of his movies, I can get my own house."
"There's no reason to live in my house no more," the open-minded husband of actress Jada Pinkett Smith added.
