Back in August there were a lot of rumors that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith were on the verge of separation. Some said Jada had had an affair with her HawthoRNe co-star Marc Anthony, and more recently there was some speculation on Will’s sexual orientation. Other than a few words from friends, and Will’s son from his first marriage no one has said a thing about the rumors. Now however Jada has come out and spoken to the French magazine Gala.
Gala asked Jada about why she and Will were targeted for the rumors, and she replied “I have no idea! Every year, one celebrity couple is under the microscope. This year, unluckily, it’s us! I almost want to say that we should have been expecting it.” Later on she added “Will and I know the truth. We’re waiting peacefully for the storm to blow over.”
Like most celebrity couples Jada and Will do spend a fair bit of time apart, but that doesn’t mean there are problems with their marriage. ”These rumors are completely untrue,” she says. “I travel a lot because of my work, just like Will does. … But our lifestyle hasn’t changed. Before we had the kids, we were already far away from each other quite often because of separate projects.”
They do still live together too, even though it was reported several times that they no longer do. ”That’s ridiculous,” Jada said. “We’ve always lived together.”
Perhaps this rumor can finally be put to bed now that Jada has come out and publicly denied that any of it is true.
