By his 15th birthday, Jaden Smith wants mom Jada Pinkett Smith and dad Will Smith to legally emancipated him. That’s so according to a recent report from The Sun.
The media outlet reports the statement came directly from musician and actor Will Smith.
Will told The Sun, “[Jaden] 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 … That’s the backlash. On the other side, if kids just want to have command of their lives, I understand.”
