Will Smith - Jaden Smith has no plans to be emancipated

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith's son has no plans to try to become an emancipated minor.

Jaden Smith has laughed off recent comments made by Will, who claimed he had reluctantly accepted that their son wanted to be freed from their legal guardianship so he could move into his own house on his 15th birthday in July.

In a joint interview with his father on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' on Wednesday (15.04.13), the 'After Earth' star said: ''See, here's the thing that you need to understand: I'm not going anywhere.

''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.''

The 'Karate Kid' star also joked that Will said he can only move out when he becomes hugely successful.

Jaden said: ''He says as soon as I have a movie that's bigger than one of his movies, I can get my own house.''

Will also dismissed his previous comments, insisting they were made in jest and taken out of context.

He said: ''I think I made a joke in Tokyo. I mean... my baby boy, he's never leaving me, ever. No emancipation for the Smith kids.''

The 44-year-old star, who also had a daughter, Willow, 12 with Jada, as well as a 19-year-old son, Trey, from his previous marriage with Sheree Zampino - previously claimed his children to take responsibility for their own lives and this had encouraged Jaden to ask for a house of his own for his next birthday.

He explained: ''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.''
