Jaden Smith to Parents: Emancipate Me!

by at . Comments

He may never be mistaken for Mel Gibson in Braveheart, but Jaden Smith apparently went to his famous parents recently and demanded something unusual:

FREEEEEDOM!

Jaden turns 15 in July and his dad told The Sun this week what his only son has asked for as a present.

“He says, ‘Dad, I want to be emancipated," Will Smith said. "I know if we do this, he can be an emancipated minor, because he really wants to have his own place.

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

Jaden, meanwhile, may be dating Kylie Jenner and is definitely close friends with Justin Bieber.

He stars this summer opposite his father in a new movie and you can check out the After Earth trailer now.

I was like him when I was a teenager too. But, now that I am grown, I realize that adult life is not as great as it seems.

Are you kidding me? All kids want this...to get as far away as possible from their parents. And when things go wrong they run back to mommy and daddy...Another example of Hollywood's Stupid Brats and their Parents.

He's NOT his 'only son'...

I'd say fine - here's the door and by the way - you have no money. Enjoy your stay on the streets....
What a spoiled brat. Or - get your little rear in your room - get a part time job for your allowance - and you can't date anybody associated with Kris Jenner (or hang out with hoodlum wanna-be Justin Bieber). Will and Jada need to put their feet down -

Emancipating him at 15 would be a big mistake. Of course he wants his freedom and his own place and to be able to make his own decisions about his life. But at 15 he does NOT have the mental and emotional tools to handle it. Will and Jada, Don't Do It! It is not safe.

Do not let him do it WIll, stay strong and get through this, my son wanted to do this and we wouldn.t let him and now that he is 22 he very much thanks us for staying strong. His friend did it and went off to a Rhode Island school and wound up of Heroin and is a mess. Kids need the parents to be caring but tough love, believe me it was worth it. Usually later in life they tell you that you should have made me stay home

Very few 15 year olds have the kind of maturity to carry off emancipation well, although most think they do, hence the issue. When your a celebrity it brings with it a whole other set of troubles, like less accountability for my actions since I'm not under your roof anymore, who to trust as manager when my current one quits, finances etc.
I hope Will, and Jade because she would have to agree to this also, do not allow it.

I hope Will doesn't allow it. No way. His son has only 3 more short years left and he'll be 18. Say no for his own good, Will!
