Jaden Smith has denied intentions to get emancipated from his parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith because he is financially comfortable.
Jaden Smith has laughed off rumours he wants to emancipate himself from his parents.
The 14-year-old son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith squashed speculation during a television interview with his actor father.
He explained he doesn’t intend to move out soon because he is well looked after financially.
“See, here’s the thing that you need to understand: I’m not going anywhere,” Jaden told host Ellen DeGeneres. “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.”
Reports suggested he requested emancipation as a minor on July 8, when he turns 15.
Jaden joked that he and his father Will have a pact of sorts regarding the Karate Kid star’s future move out date.
“He says as soon as I have a movie that’s bigger than one of his movies, I can get my own house,” he chuckled.
According to British newspaper The Sun 44-year-old Will reluctantly accepted Jaden no longer wanted the legal guardianship of his parents.
The publication quoted him as preparing to leave his family in hope of finding his independence.
“He says, ‘Dad, I want to be emancipated,’” he allegedly said. “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.”
