Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith Deny Split Reports
Wed, 24 Aug 2011 12:15:06
Despite both being vocal in the press about their distaste for the concept of divorce and plenty of evidence of a rock solid marriage, media reports were swirling that Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith are planning to split after 13 years of marriage. Pinkett-Smith's rep Karynne Tencer said that she knew nothing of the sort, seemingly dismissing the report printed in supermarket rag InTouch. The report's source was allegedly someone close to the couple, who have two kids.
Speaking of kids, the couple's son Jaden posted a tweet saying that the rumors of the demise of his parents' marriage are untrue. He called it "false information" and asked followers to retweet it, presumably to help correct the reports.
Later in the day, Pinkett-Smith's rep told Entertainment Tonightthat "Everything about the Marc Anthony story is completely false, but we are not commenting on whether they are separating or not." There were rumors that Pinkett-Smith and her HawthoRNe co-star were an item.
This was getting complicated…
...But before the end of the day, at the point when rumors burned at a fever pitch, a joint statement was issued: "Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false," the couple said. "We are still together, and our marriage is intact." And that's that.
It's worth nothing that InTouch did break the news that Jesse James had cheated on Sandra Bullock in 2010.
Do you think these Will Smith/Jada Pinkett-Smith reports are true or false?
