In a rather carefully constructed statement, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smitth have confirmed they are NOT separating. In Touch reported that the couple was pulling the trigger on their 13 year marriage. The mag appears to have jumped the gun.
The initial report gave no detail as to why Will and Jada were allegedly breaking up. It simply announced they were separating and then instructed readers to by the print version of the tabloid. Huge red flag right there, but is the mag completely wrong?
The Smiths issued this statement to People:
“Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false. We are still together, and our marriage is intact.”
Will’s son and Jada’s stepson, Trey Smith, also took to Twitter to fire a big FALSE at the reports:
“Did #WillandJada split? No they did NOT split! False information … its not true RETWEET!!! Everyone can think what they want … even if its not true.”
However, TMZ is reporting that despite their show of unity, sources close to the couple insist that their marriage is in fact on the rocks. They aren’t at the separation stage yet according to the site. They are planning a family vacation that they hope will calm the waters. Jada’s rep also released another odd statement addressing rumors that Jada was cheating with her ‘Hawthorne’ co-star, Marc Anthony.
“Everything about the Marc Anthony story is completely false, but we are not commenting on whether they are separating or not.”
Yet another report says that the couple is “laughing” about the reports and have met with a legal team to decided how to handle In Touch’s initial report.
I’d say that like every marriage, they have their ups and downs. When I saw them at Oprah’s Farewell Spectacular when the cameras weren’t rolling, they seemed lighthearted and affectionate. I’d say they are still solid.
