If you are to believe In Touch Weekly (and that’s a big “if”), Will Smith, 42, and wife Jada Pinkett Smith, 39, are separating. However, the tabloid’s website doesn’t offer much verification for the. Their brief write-up only states:
“After 13 years of marriage, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have decided to separate, an insider tells In Touch Weekly exclusively. ... For more on this breaking news story, pick up this week’s issue of In Touch Weekly.”
A ploy to sell copies of the magazine? Totally!
After day-long speculation by many media outlets, the famous couple sent out this joint statement:?“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.”
The pair, long considered one of Hollywood’s most successful couples, have two children together, Jaden, 13, and Willow, 10. Smith has an 18-year-old son, Willard Christopher Smith, known as Trey, with his first wife. Trey took to Twitter to shut down the rumors. “#WillandJada split? No they did NOT split! False information ... its not true RETWEET!!!”
