Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith: Are They or Aren’t They?
Is this simply a classic case of the rumor mill gone awry, or something more?
One of Hollywood’s biggest power couples is under fire this week following a teaser report from In Touch that claims lovebirds Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith are calling it quits.
Naturally, our immediate reaction was, “Say what??”
And just as we were about to bawl our eyes out at the thought of yet another A-lister breakup, Will’s oldest son Trey Smith (from a previous marriage) took to Twitter in the hopes of squashing the alleged rumor.
“Did #WillandJada split? No they did NOT split! False information … its not true RETWEET!!!” He later added, “Everyone can think what they want … even if its not true.”
After Trey’s tweet hit the Web, Jada’s rep Karynne Tencer responded to the allegation via TMZ: “What? In Touch said that? I know nothing about this … Lord. I’m going back to bed.”
Finally, the couple of the century issued a joint statement that seemed to silence the gossipmongers (if only for a moment):
“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.”
RadarOnline reports that Will and Jada are currently working with their legal team to see what can be done about the ruthless breakup buzz.
Meanwhile, rumors of a hookup between Jada and her HawthoRNe co-star Marc Anthony are still going strong. Yes, we’re serious!
Tell us: Do you believe that something really is going down in the Smith household, or is this one power couple that’s built to last?
