The internet and gossip sites were heating up from the rumors that circulated regarding Jada & Will Smith possible divorce. In Touch Weekly reported that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith had separated after 13 years of marriage. They received the bit of information from an anonymous source with instructions to pick up the magazine this week for the full story. Since then, a family member has told Radar Onlinethat the rumor is false.
This is absolutely not true,” a family member –who did not want to be identified – exclusively told RadarOnline.com Tuesday about the rumors that the couple has broken up. “No way are they splitting up. They are totally together and are not separating,”. A separate source that works very closely with Smith at his production company, Overbrook Entertainment, exclusively told RadarOnline.com: “The rumors are not true. Not sure who the source was but they are wrong. All is good in their relationship”
Access Hollywood also reached out to a rep for Jada Pinkett Smith who didn’t quite shut down the rumors when she responded, ”[Jada] has nothing to say right now”, however the entertainment site noted that Will has always said that ‘Divorce Is Not An Option’. In 2008, he told Ellen Degeneres:
What I found is divorce just can’t be an option. It’s really that simple. And I think that’s the problem with L.A. – there are so many options. So a huge part of the success for [Jada] and I is that we just removed the other options.”
Access Hollywood also added fuel to the fire by pointing out that Will wasn’t wearing a wedding ring when photographed in Miami yesterday evening.
UPDATE: Another rumor circulating around their split involve a hookup between Pinkett Smith and her recently separated “HawthoRNe” costar Marc Anthony. Jada’s rep, Karynne Tencer tells People, “All the rumors regarding Marc Anthony and Jada are false. Completely untrue. As for [the reports of a split between] Will and Jada, I’m not commenting on their personal life.”
Anthony’s rep added, “We unequivocally deny this. Enough is enough. There are families involved, children involved, friendships involved. This is not true.”
