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.
