Jaden Smith and Will Smith took the opportunity took to set the record straight when they appeared together on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and confirmed that despite recent rumors, Jaden is not emancipating himself from Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith.
The rumors all started when Will made a joke in Japan that was taken out of context and the rumour mill went into overdrive claiming that the 14-year-old wanted to be emancipated from his famous parents. However, the truth is quite different, with Jaden saying he "wasn't aware" of the rumors until the press tour for After Earth, his most recent movie with dad Will, started.
"I didn't know what was going on 'cause I don't really go on the Internet except for going on Tumblr," the younger Smith said. "I totally wasn't aware at all of anything."
He also provided Ellen with a pretty good reason why he's "not going anywhere," saying that 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."
We're not sure what Will and Jada will think of that, but it's good that they've been able to sort out the confusion around a joke that was misunderstood.

Catherine Zeta-Jones has returned home after completing her ongoing treatment for Bipolar II disorder. The Welsh actress "proactively" checked into a health care facility in late April, as confirmed by the star's rep, and completed her treatment today.
Zeta-Jones spoke about her diagnosis for the first time two years ago in April 2011 when she checked into Connecticut's Silver Hill Hospital and husband Michael Douglas confirmed on Monday that she's "doing wonderful" and that "she's got herself worked out with her meds and she's raring to go!"
Douglas said his wife make the brave decision to share her diagnosis with the world in the hope that it would help to reduce the stigmas often attached to mental illnesses. "There are so many outlets, so it's better you get out in front of it tell your story before it becomes gossip," he clarified.
We wish Catherine all the best with her ongoing treatment and admire her decision to share such a personal story.

Multiple reports have surfaced from various media outlets that Twilight co-stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have taken a break from their relationship of over three years.
The relationship hit a rocky patch last year when incriminating photos of Stewart and her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, came to light.
Although the couple were seen holding hands at Coachella last month, various outlets are saying that the duo are taking a time-out.
People magazine has quoted a source saying the duo have called it quits, but "it would not be surprising" if they got back together.
US Weekly has also reported that the relationship is in trouble, saying that Pattinson "insiders" say that Stewart and Pattinson have been "having problems" and "fighting a lot."
Most recently on Friday, HollywoodLife also caught wind of the story, saying that Pattinson even piked out on his own birthday bash, which Stewart had apparently arranged.
There's been no comment so far from either of the private stars' reps, so whether they have actually been to Splitsville or whether this is just a care of over zealous reporting remains to be seen.

The 2013 Billboard Music Awards happened in Las Vegas last night and the show certainly had it's highs and it's lows. Hosted by Tracy Morgan, there were big names both in attendance and performing, however, most of the artists seemed to lip sync their way through their performances.
While presenting, Kid Rock made reference to all the lip syncing and while most of the artists lip synced, Justin Bieber's performance of "Take You" was one of the worst lip syncing displays of the night as he barely made much of a sound, but when he did, it was pretty clear to hear.
In addition, Shania Twain presented the award for Best Rap Artist (who would have ever thought Shania Twain when thinking of rap?!), which went to Nicki Minaj - the only female nominated in the category.
During his performance, Migel jumped from once side of the stage over the audience to another part of the stage, but the jump didn't go too smoothly, with the singer landing on top of an audience member's head, knocking it against the stage (but it later turned out that she was okay).
Jennifer Lopez put in one of the best performances of the night with her song "Live It Up", causing the audience to all get up and dance while Twitter went nuts with tweets about the superstar.
Bad things lay in store for Justin Bieber though, when he accepted the first ever Milestone Award. The audience booed the 19-year-old and, after a few moments, the singer finally spoke, telling the audience that "I'm an artist and I should be taken seriously and all this other bull should not be spoken of." Which then naturally left him wide open to all sorts of jokes on Twitter.
Taylor Swift was on an absolute roll last night, scoring six awards, including Top Female Artist, Top Country Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist and Artist of the Year. While accepting her award for Artist of the Year, Tay Tay told her fans that they are "the longest and best relationship I have ever had."

It's the song contest that has seen the likes of Julio Iglesias and Olivia Newton-John and crowned winners such as ABBA and Celine Dion and this year, artists from all over Europe descended on host country Sweden for the Eurovision Song Contest.
After all the sequins, good-looking drummers, pyrotechnics, wind and smoke machines, floating lanterns and a Romanian guy who looked like a camp version of Dracula, but sounded like a woman singing opera, the winner was crowned.
It was Emmelie De Forest from Denmark who finally took out the title of winner of the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest with her barefoot performance of her song "Only Teardrops." Denmark had been the favourite to win and she managed to beat out 26 other artists, including "Total Eclipse of the Heart" singer Bonnie Tyler, who represented the UK, and Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi, who represented Armenia.
After her win, De Forest said that "I could feel the fans and all the energy in the arena" and that it was extra special for her to win in Sweden, as her late father was Swedish. "It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I'm just the happiest girl in the world," she said.
The 20-year-old's performance earned her 281 points, causing her to take the lead ahead of Farid Mammadov of Azerbaijan (234 points) and Zlata Ognevich from the Ukraine (214 points). In keeping with the Eurovision tradition, De Forest's win means that Denmark will play host to the contest next year.
Check out top three performances below and the memorable performance by the Romanian entry.
Winner: Emmelie De Forest (Denmark) - "Only Teardrops"
Second place: Farid Mammadov (Azerbaijan) - "Hold Me"
Third Place: Zlata Ognevich (Ukraine) - "Gravity"
Memorable performance: Cezar (Romania) - "It's My Life"

Rumors have been bouncing around recently that Beyonce is pregnant with her second child and now E! Online say that multiple sources have confirmed the news. Other media outlets have written about the supposed pregnancy as well, but they're all crediting E! at this point.
The news has not yet been confirmed by either Beyonce or Jay-Z's reps, but the rumor mill went into overdrive this week when Beyonce was forced to cancel a performance of her Mrs. Carter Show in Belgium due to "dehydration and exhaustion."
Tongues were also set wagging when Bey wore a custom made Givenchy gown to the Met Gala that conveniently covered her stomach, with the bodice belted above the waist and an intricate pattern on the gown making it hard to spot any kind of baby bump.
The songstress also cleverly disguised her baby bump under well designed outfits when she was pregnant with daughter Blue Ivy, so it's no surprise that her outfit for the Met Gala only added fuel to the pregnancy rumor fire.
What do you think? Is Beyonce pregnant or is this just another case of a presumed pregnancy??
