TV star talks about adding Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith’s offspring to her Kardashian brood

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has admitted she has a "very close" relationship with 15 year-old actor Jaden Smith, son of mega-stars Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, amid rumours he is dating her youngest daughter, 16 year-old Kylie Jenner.

The 58-year-old Kardashian family matriarch stated, "he is the greatest kid in the world. I'm very close to Jaden and he's like one of my own, you know."

The After Earth star and Kylie, who previously insisted they were just good friends and was rumoured to be seeing troubled singer Justin Bieber, were spotted getting super-close at her half-sister Kim Kardashian and rapper Kanye West's wedding in Florence, Italy last month.

Kylie was one of the few members of the bridal party granted a plus-one for the wedding and despite it being a very formal affair, Jaden wore a Batman costume, which Kris thought was a "genius" decision.

She explained: "And he had this Batman costume on and I thought it was just genius. When you look at it ... it sounds just crazy. It was beautiful. He looked so good, and so fun, and he also has a really good sense of humour." Kris revealed that Jaden wore the costume all night and she even borrowed his shoes the next day, as her feet were sore from her high heels. She added: "actually, the Batman costume was really cool and fabulous, and it was white and it was almost like, 'Oh, there's Jaden in his Batman costume.' It wasn't like a crazy thing. It was actually really fun, and he added such humour to the night and it was great."
