Jaden Smith is at that age when he’s ready to lay it on a Kardashian, but his dad Will Smith is trying to get him to hit the breaks on his teen romance because having a girlfriend can be the pits. Will should know – he married Jada and now they’re stuck together by the sheer force of their own denial at what a sham their relationship is. Break free from the chains, young Jaden! Emancipate yourself before it’s too late!
From E Online:
“Probably the best advice he’s ever given me is, ‘Don’t have a girlfriend,'” Jaden revealed. “The stress is real.”
A laughing Will clarified that his advice against being in a relationship is “for now.”
“At this point, I just want him to establish his dreams, establish his desires,” the actor said. “Find out who he is. And blending with another person is very difficult, and a lot of times you can lose yourself in that process. So my encouragement to him is to be honest with anybody that he interacts with. Don’t make commitments that a 14-year-old can’t live up to.”
I have to agree with Will on this one. Jaden’s 14 – why in the hell does he need a girlfriend? I know times have changed since I was 14 and he’s also in Hollywood, which is a whole other kettle of fish, but seriously, I was still playing with dolls at 14, I think. Just doing their hair and outfits, of course. WHATEVER, don’t judge me!!
