After 13 years of marriage, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith have reportedly separated, or so says In Touch Weekly, who was told by a source of the couple’s plans to go their separate ways. What did Will and Jada have to say about their alleged split?
The couple released a joint statement regarding In Touch Weekly’s claims:
“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.”
Now reports are coming out that Jada and Marc Anthony had an alleged affair. Anthony plays Jada’s love interest on her TNT show, HawthoRNe. Jada’s rep put the kibosh on the rumor that the two were hooking up, telling Entertainment Tonight, ‘Everything about the Marc Anthony story is completely false.’ Hmm. Interesting, eh?
Will and Jada met back in 1990 when she auditioned for the role as his girlfriend on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. While she didn’t end up getting the role, the two did form a friendship because of it. On New Year’s Eve 1997, the two were married, and Jada was two months pregnant with their son Jaden. He was born July 8, 1998. Daughter Willow was born October 31, 2000. Will has an older child, Will III, aka Trey, with his first wife, Sheree Zampino.
For several years, the Hollywood power couple have been regular tabloid fodder when it comes to the rumors of their ‘open marriage’. In a 2009 interview with NPR, Jada said:
“I don’t have an open marriage, no, we’re not gay. You know, then – and you don’t trust that, well, there’s nothing that we – that I really have to say to anybody about anything because at the end of the day, I’m living my life and I’m happy.”
Here we are two years later…are they really still a happy couple?
