Jada Pinkett Smith Says ‘No Comment’ To Reports She Is Separating From Hubby Will Smith [UPDATE]

Clarification

Earlier today a report from In Touch Weekly magazine came out that made the claim that Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith are separating and some ridiculous mention was made that Jada was having some sort of affair with her Hawthorne co-star Marc Anthony (who, himself, is newishly separated from wife Jennifer Lopez). Jada has issued a statement to Entertainment Tonight shooting down reports that she is philandering with Marc Anthony … but she very purposely gave a NO COMMENT on reports that she is separating from Will. HMMM. Does that sound like an admission that they are to you?

A rep for Jada Pinkett Smith is opening up to ET about rumors that she and husband Will Smith have split up. Karynne Tencer tells ET, “Everything about the Marc Anthony story is completely false, but we are not commenting on whether they are separating or not.” On Tuesday, In Touch Weekly reported that a source told the magazine that Will and Jada had decided to separate after 13 years of marriage. A rumor surfaced that Jada was cheating with Marc, her Hawthorne co-star and love interest. The couple has two children together, Karate Kid star Jaden, 13, and 10-year-old Willow, who became famous last year when her single Whip My Hair became an Internet smash. Jada is also stepmother to Will’s son, Trey, from his previous marriage to Sheree Zampino.

HMMMMM … the fact that Jada‘s rep denied one part of the story and not the entire break-up report seems … tellling. Before Jada issued her statement, Will and Jada‘s son Trey denied that the couple are splitting:

A tabloid reported Tuesday that the A-List Hollywood couple, who’ve been married for 13 years, are separating. But Trey Smith, Will’s son from a previous marriage, says not so fast. “Did #WillandJada split? No they did NOT split! False information … its not true RETWEET!!!” Trey posted to Twitter Tuesday. “Everyone can think what they want … even if its not true.”

I guess we’ll just have to see how this all plays out. At first, I was reluctant to believe the report but if Jada‘s rep is issuing “no comment”s on break-up reports while denying other rumors … I dunno. Seems fishy. In the end, we’ll learn all sooner or later. What do y’all think? Do you believe that Will and Jada are splitting up?

UPDATE: It seems the “no comment” comment is causing problems for the couple so they decided to issue a new statement for clarification:

“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.”

I mean … OK. If that’s their story, I guess they’re sticking to it.

    She probably thinks it’s a waste of time to comment and deny anything because people will believe what they want to believe.

    • ella

      But then why would she comment about Marc Anthony?

    • @ella — Exactly. It seems really odd that only one part of the rumor would be denied … seems fishy.

    • I totally agree! That doesn’t really make sense. It seems very odd!!

    • kath

      I would think that most of these hollywood couples have prenups with a cheating clause

    • helen

      Maybe she made a comment on the Mark Anthony part out of respect for him and jlo, since they would also be affected by the rumors and on the other hand did not comment on her own marriage because there is no need since they both know it’s “intact”…. right??… RIGHT???

      Seriously I’d be super bummed… First Jen and Brad, then Courtney and David, now Will and Jada… who’s next??? Heidi and Seal??!!…
      :(

    • lori

      isnt there a scientology connection between jlo/ma and the smiths? so, out of respect for jlo she decided to comment on the mark anthony rumor where normally she would not..i think they are fine. wouldnt it just suck if they weren’t?

  2. loriannakim

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !!! it just CANT : (

  3. CHASE

    There’s been rumors for years that she’s really a lesbian and that Will is bisexual.

  4. C

    Wasnt the rumor for years that they had an open marriage? With their kids being teens, I would hope they wouldnt but they dont seem as they would be nasty if they did seperate.

    • I’ve never hear the gay rumours, but I think every couple in Hollywood are accused of being gay and leading double lives. I have however heard about their marriage being open. Maybe she’s been doing the horizontal horah with MA afterall, but it’s nothing more than casual sex.

  5. Ama

    Maybe there was no comment on them separating or not because it had not been decided yet? Maybe they are close to separating but are trying to work through it? I don’t know.

  6. krissy

    Maybe the rep already talked to Jada about the Mark Anthony rumors, so she was free to give a response. If she hadn’t talked to Jada about the separation rumors, she might not have been allowed to give comment on that issue without first talking to the person she represents.

    Some stars require that their reps get an OK from them before they comment about ANYTHING. I wouldn’t read too much into it.

  7. loriannakim

    They already denied it: “The rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false…Our marriage is intact.”

  8. Jada doesnt come off as the type that would hide it if they were seperating. so im going to believe its a false rumor if she says it is.

  9. Janaegal

    I’m actually inclined to believe them… The first statement from their rep was they don’t comment on their personal life…maybe it was due to respect to Marc Anthony that they outright denied that at first.

    They seem to have a happy, loving marriage and if it’s an act, that’s a dedicated and hard core act that i doubt they’d give up so easily. I actually believe they’re in a real marriage and one I envy. ;)

    If the sepparation rumor is true,then maybe Will can finaly focus on working on his “relationship” with Tom Cruise.

  12. Anne Boleyn

    They already denied it: “The rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false…Our marriage is intact.”

    Yeah, but 50% of the time that’s followed up with a “oh, BTW, yeah, we are separating.” comment.

  13. Carmen

    They were the only couple in Hollywood that made me believe that celebrities can be married :(

  14. kath

    yeah…….. i remember when brad and jen wernt breaking up either and he wasnt sleeping with angelina on the set of his new movie…….. oh le sigh it must be sooo hard to be rich and beautiful

  15. Jenn

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO I’m glad it’s not true.

  16. teri

    I hope this is not true but like they say “where there’s smoke there’s fire”. I’ve always heard the gay rumors too but they made a great couple (or so it appeared anyway). Time will tell!

  17. aimie

    OMG… who in their right mind would choose zombie looking marc anthony over will smith! it’s just weird all around!

  18. BriK

    I love me some Will Smith.

  19. whitney marchelle

    WOW..i don’t know gossip can really hurt…TMZ is pretty reliable with it leader being a lawyer…I think there might be some truth to all of this…the rumor was marc was cheating on Jlo and we would soon find out more inf…welll whats up MZ picket…seems like you need to make up your mind…being rich just buys material things not love
