Jaden Smith Wants To Be Emancipated From Will & Jada

(AllHipHop News) International superstar Will Smith recently revealed in an interview that his 14-year-old son Jaden wants to be emancipated from his parents. According to radaronline, Jaden asked that he be given legal independence for his 15th birthday so that he can live in his own private home.

“He says, ‘Dad, I want to be emancipated.’ I know if we do this, he can be an emancipated minor, because he really wants to have his own place, like ‘Ooh,’” Will tells The Sun.

Jaden would like to join other famous teenagers like Drew Barrymore, Corey Feldman, and Macaulay Culkin who were granted independence from their parents. Past cases of celebrity emancipations have been mostly the result of battles over money or obtaining the legal right to work longer hours on movie sets.

Jaden’s emancipation request appears to be more about personal freedom than disputes over finances or wanting to work overtime. Will does not reveal if he and Jada Pinkett Smith will willingly grant their son the right to live alone, but he seems to be understanding of the teenager’s desire to control more of his life.

“That’s the backlash. On the other side, if kids just want to have command of their lives, I understand,” says Will.

Jaden has been a professional entertainer since the age of three when he appeared in 2002’s Men in Black II. The young actor has also starred in The Pursuit of HappynessThe Day the Earth Stood Still, and The Karate Kid.

He will join forces with his dad for this month’s sci-fi film After Earth (5/31) directed by M. Night Shyamalan.

He also continues to follow in his father’s footsteps by pursuing the world of rap music as well. Last October Jaden released his first mixtape The Cool Cafe.

    Then emancipate your ass from your parents’ pockets too, see how you like that. #RichPeopleProblems

    • Sean Taylor

      Um in case you haven’t noticed he makes his own money. Nice try though.


      • Blaq_Boi

        Don’t you for a second try have anyone believe this kid can live off his own stacks alone. I can’t even believe I’m arguing with a cigar smoking pumpkin. #SoftHeadPeopleProblems

      • He could……he will just get eaten by the wolves.

        Solution : Build him a house next to theirs.

      • Blaq_Boi

        I don’t see this kid pulling a decade + long career. He must stay put and get as much from his parents (beyond financially), then try shit. Emancipation @ 15?! Thats a bit much homes. This kid ain’t allowed to drive a car yet and he already wants to run his own affairs. Nah.

      • Guest

        at 15, they ain’t thru supportin’ him, and helpin’ him be famous – a case of shitt#ing where he eats..

        Blaq_Boi – which is what you said – my bad.

      • scullyson

        Right ! But he needs to stay home and soak up some more knowledge no doubt.

    • Why Sean Taylor sound hella offended? Accountant A$$ muthaf***a! lmfao

      • Blaq_Boi

        Tell me about it… hahahahaha. He prolly think Mr Miyagi can cut Fresh Prince type checks.

    • mike malarkey

  • Definitely against 14 year-olds being 100% in charge of themselves 100% of the time. But, we’ll see… It’s their kid, not mine.

    emancipate his gaye azz

  • Elle

    All you have to do is look at the examples given (Drew Barrymore, Corey Feldman, and Macaulay Culkin) to get an indication of how Jayden’s emancipation will turn out.

    • churchboy2

      Unlike many in her messed up family, Drew Barrymore is highly successful and runs her own production company. The others, well…

      • Jessica2248

        she was messed up for a long time. she went through a lot before she finally took control of her life. in the end she’s doing okay, but i still would not want to go it the way she did.

      • Guest

        churchboy2 – but Barrymore is a rare ex-addict that beat addiction and turned it around – her case is not normal

      • Drew had to struggle to get that way. She was a wild child for years, a recovered addict, etc. She is an exception.

      You ignorant Genetic Defect…..

  • BulldogCG

    He make more money than most grown ups so I believe financially he could do it, its silly to believe otherwise, I mean do you ever look around from time to time to see the mouth breathers that make it in society? at least he has a. talent and b. a recognizable name. He can make money simply for being Will Smith son. Obviously don’t know the kid, but he really seems to have a decent head on his shoulders too. Some kids I know got they stuff together more than adults, and I know people that raised theyself, age is just a number, I say do you, time will tell.

    • @BulldogCG:disqus he could do it no doubt but as a mother I would have to really sit down and talk to him and find out what it is he really wants. If it is his own place then why can’t he wait until he is 15 and 9 months or wait until you are 16. he could probably pay his parents bills. It doesn’t matter how much money he has, is he able to live on his own. All his money would go into a Maid, Butler, House keeper, Chef and a driver.

    • He may have the money, but he doesn’t have the maturity.

  • Darek Thomas

    Parents just don’t understand.

    • From the looks of it, I think Jaden might get his way.

  • Reblogged this on HUEY mix wit RILEY.

  • does this lil nigga even go to school?? lol.. he should stick to movies cause lil rich spoiled brats dont make for cool rappers.

  • these kids will be trains wrecks in 10 years if not sooner


    this lil nigga prolly ready to smash a few chicks but Big Will and Jada got his ass on lock down lol he aint ready for that life yet noway, he just need to wait it out till 18 and concentrate on stacking his bread up until then, hell im 34 and aint gon see not even a 1/4 of what he’s earned already lol
