Will Smith Divorce Update 2011: Will and Jada Release Statement!
Fans of Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith were devastated yesterday when news that the couple was filing for divorce hit the internet. The rumors quickly spiraled out of control with large media outlets quoting unreliable sources who have nothing to do with the situation.
The divorce news was derived by gossip tabloid In Touch Weekly who claimed that the marriage between the two stars was on the rocks and that the two actors were parting ways.
TMZ called Jada’s rep for comment and this is what she said:
“What? In Touch said that? I know nothing about this…Lord. I’m going back to bed.”
After that, Will Smith’s son, Trey, tweeted about the rumors as well:
“Will and Jada getting a DIVORCE,” he says “NOT TRUE AT ALL!!”
But even after Jada’s rep and Will’s son denied the speculation, the rumor mill continued in full force. Eventually, Will and Jada felt the need to intervene and released this statement yesterday:
“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.”
Hmm, the statement doesn’t really scream “we’re totally in love and would never dream of leaving one another” but we’ll take it.
Do you think it’s just a matter of time before the real truth comes out and Will and Jada announce their divorce (like so many other rumored splits that were eventually confirmed…like Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt, Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey, Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman…)?
