Everything old is new again, including conclusive, concrete proof — from anonymous sources — that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are totally done as a married couple. Welcome to the latest edition of Celebrity Gossip Déjà vu! “For Will and Jada, holding it together these past few years has been tough because their marriage has been on life support for a long time,” a source tells Radar Online.
“They’re exhausted from trying to maintain the façade of a happy union. They’ve decided to pull the plug in a carefully choreographed manner [and] agree announcing their split at the end of the summer is the right move.” Of course, because August is generally a pretty quiet month, with lots of folks on vacation, and you wouldn’t want to blow a big announcement then.
“They tried to fix things with therapy, [but] it’s not happening,” the source says. “They’re already moving on with their lives. All that’s left is the inking of the divorce papers,” as they’ve already “worked out a confidential settlement to protect their $240 million fortune and prepare their kids for the fallout.” Given all the false alarms there have been in tabloids about this kind of thing over the years, you’d think they’d be pretty well prepared already.
