(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.
