Have Jada Pinkett & Will Smith separated? (updates: finally, a direct denial)

wenn3198703

Jesus! Just the other day, I was thinking about how slow it was going to be this week, and how we wouldn’t have much gossip until September, when the film festivals and Oscar campaigns begin in earnest. I actually thought to myself, “I wish some big couple would break up. Someone exciting.” Well… something might have happened. MIGHT. In Touch Weekly (via The Mail) is reporting that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have separated.

Just last month they opened the doors of their luxury Malibu home and happily posed for a revealing and intimate family photo shoot.

But Hollywood power couple Will Smith, 42, and wife Jade Pinkett-Smith’s seemingly picture perfect marriage has now come to a shock end, according to a new report.

The pair, who have been married for 13 years, are said to have decided to call it quits, according to America’s In Touch Weekly magazine.

This will be the second marriage to end for Men In Black star Smith who divorced former fashion design student Sheree Zampino in 1995 after three years together.

The couple had a son, Willard Christopher Smith, also known as Trey, who is now 18.

He later dedicated his 1998 single Just the Two of Us, to Trey. Lyrics included: ‘It didn’t work out with me and your mom/But yo, push come to shove/You was conceived in love.’

After his divorce, Smith found comfort in Jada, whom he had first met in 1990 when she auditioned and was rejected for the role of his girlfriend on his hit TV show, The Fresh Prince.

In 1997, they married in a lavish ceremony at a mansion near her hometown of Baltimore in front 100 friends and family.

[From The Mail]

When TMZ contacted Jada’s rep, Karynne Tencer, she said, “What? In Touch said that? I know nothing about this … Lord. I’m going back to bed.” So obviously, this is still in the “In Touch Weekly is reporting it, for what it’s worth” stage of gossip developments. Nothing has been confirmed, and if ITW’s story is untrue, I tend to think Will and Jada could possibly sue. If it is true, then what a coup for ITW, and I expect Will and Jada will release a statement to People Magazine or Us Weekly shortly.

UPDATE: Us Weekly got a denial from an “insider” who claims that ITW’s report is “100 percent not true…It’s total bulls***.” Radar also has some unnamed sources denying the report:

“This is absolutely not true,” a family member –who did not want to be identified – exclusively told RadarOnline.com Tuesday about the rumors that the couple has broken up.

“No way are they splitting up. They are totally together and are not separating,” the family member said.

Meanwhile, a separate source that works very closely with Smith at his production company, Overbrook Entertainment, exclusively told RadarOnline.com: “The rumors are not true. Not sure who the source was but they are wrong. All is good in their relationship.”

Reports that Will and Jada, the Hollywood powerhouse couple who have been married for 13 years, surfaced Tuesday and the report was quickly shot down by those close to them.

“They’re happy and married still,” the family member said when asked about the rumored split.

[From Radar]

OK, can I just say something? I thought the report from ITW was suspicious, but now I’m getting more suspicious because Jada and Will haven’t flat-out denied it. There is nothing around from their reps, no named sources going on the record about their marriage. It’s weird. Very sketchy.

UPDATE #2: Another Us Weekly report, and this time they spoke to Jada’s rep who didn’t outright deny the separation story, but did deny the alleged affair with Marc Anthony…? Apparently, ITW’s report claims that Jada and Marc had an affair, and THAT is what lead to Will and Jada’s separation. The rep says, “Everything about Jada and Marc Anthony is false… In regard to Jada and Will, I will not comment on their personal lives.” Meanwhile, Will’s son Trey went on Twitter and said, “Did WillandJada split? No they did NOT split ! False information ..its not true. Will and Jada getting a DIVORCE ..NOT TRUE AT ALL !! Everyone can think what they want ..even if its not true #Lame”

UPDATE #3: Finally, a real denial from Will and Jada, via a joint statement to People Mag: “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 really think they have lived separate lives for a long time. Now she can spend more time with her girlfriends.

  2. mln76 says:

    oh well it’s ITW so I am going to have to hold my tongue for a bit but what kind of juicy gossip could come out of this one???

  3. ninab says:

    whatever is going on behind the scenes, I see no seperation happening. I mean, the smith family is like an industry unto itself with Will and Jada and their kids having careers that are dependent in part by the picture of being a healthy, happy family.

  4. Jezi says:

    Wow…just wow!! I am very surprised.

  5. K-MAC says:

    yeah, this is not surprising. Either one or both are a beard for the other. Seriously, they need to split and be free to spend time with their side pieces

  6. Turtle Dove says:

    Sad news if it’s true. They make (made?) a really great couple.

  7. irishserra says:

    If it is true, I have this to say: What in the hell did you think was going to happen when you started introducing additional sexual partners into the marriage? Derp!

  8. Heatheradair says:

    just noticing how much she looks like Sarah Jessica Parker.

    I’m “meh” on this one, otherwise. never thought they had much chemistry as a couple. cute family, but not a huge disappointment to me one way or the other….

  9. brin says:

    This is really interesting IF true. Is COS in the mix along with other speculated reasons?

  10. curegirl0421 says:

    Eh I don’t buy it. I will be super shocked if this is true; it doesn’t fit!

  11. Jackson says:

    Isn’t she always bragging about all the hot sex they have? Ooops.

  12. kelly says:

    it was an arrangement. all black people in l.a. have known for a long time. they are not each others types (hint).

  13. RobN says:

    Is Scientology going to allow that?

  14. GossipVixen says:

    I will be very surprised if this turns out to be true. Will and Jada breaking up would be like Brad and Angie breaking up to me.

  15. Tiffany says:

    I am with you Kaiser, when I read it on People’s website I will believe it.

  16. Tia says:

    Well it sux for the kids, but Jada is totally into women. She should be happy and live her life as she chooses to. It is 2011. The world is a completely different place with coming out that it was when they met 13 years ago. Best of luck to all of them.

  17. Kara Ann says:

    I would be well and truly shocked which surprises me because I didn’t think HW’s relationship merry-go-round had the ability to shock me!

    I know it’s all PR with these people but Will & Jada are very good at it and I completely bought into it that they had a good solid marriage.

    Hmmm…we’ll see.

  18. kieslwoski says:

    No way I do not believe that they will ever split, do they live separate lives – possibly. But Will and JAda worked hard to be perceived thee way they are, they are lifers.

  19. DetRiotgirl says:

    @Irishserra wait, full stop. Did I miss something? When did they start taking on other partners? Please explain!

    *grabs popcorn and pulls up a chair*

    While I wait on that, I have to comment on Jada’s face. She used to be very pretty, but now she looks… Yes, @heatheradair, she looks like SJP. That is most definitely not a compliment on my part. Did she lose a lot of weight or maybe get awkwardly placed fillers in her face?

    As for this divorce, eh… I don’t know. This is coming from In Touch Weekly, so it has about the same chance of being true as a fortune cookie accurately predicting the future.

    I mean, because they have such an great sex life, right? Just ask Jada! Hmmm… On second thought, this could be true.

  20. zephyr says:

    *But yo, push comes to shove/You was conceived in love*
    A strange lyric if Will’s intention was to comfort his elder son.

  21. Palermo says:

    I have read for years that they are both gay, so why continue with the farce. At least we don’t have to listen to them going on about their perfect marriage and sex life on Oprah’s show, a blessed end to that too. I will enjoy the quiet.

  22. You don't say says:

    Until given some credence by another more reliable source, I say hold off. But it is spreading like wild fire as usual on the net, which is sad, especially if it is not true.

  23. Christine says:

    Separating??? But they have sex all the time!!!

  24. Harley says:

    Don’t believe it. Regardless of whether they are each other’s beard or not, the Smith family makes too much $$$ with their “happy family” image to break it up.

  25. Luise says:

    WHAT? Is Jada gay? Is this is what all of you are saying?

  26. Lady D says:

    Anybody know what that dark mark on her right boob is? (3rd pic down)It looks like a burn.

  27. Pyewacket says:

    This is a case for HawthoRN. She can work miracles!

  28. TQB says:

    I feel bad for the publicist. What a thing to wake up to. You know her day is gonna be hell!

  29. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    This is BS. Please tell me the last time ITW had the scoop on thing. God when will people learn to stop listening to tabloids, especially one as poorly done as ITW.

  30. really says:

    They seem to live seprerate live anyway! So IF they did split, no one would be hurt but goof-balls who believe in their marketed partnership.

  31. jam says:

    I don’t believe it. It’s IN TOUCH, people!

  32. TG says:

    It might be BS but it doesn’t surpirse me at all since they always seem to give off the impression that they have an open marriage. @DetRiotgirl – I have read or watched quite a few of their interviews where they talk about how they make their marriage work and I wish I could quote some but I can’t but the vibe always comes off as they allow each other their freedom to explore other partners and stuff like that. This has been my own impression directly from their interviews not from reading gossip sites.

  33. Winnie says:

    I remember an article where they said divorce is never an option for them. So …. either it’s not true or they’ve changed their tune.

  34. Mermaid says:

    Women who brag about their sex lives are “red flags” for bad relationships. Eva Longoria also was a bragger like Jada. Not surprised here…

  35. Nanea says:

    I’d be surprised if they were actually to divorce because I think their freak cult Co$ wouldn’t have it.

    I know they haven’t really been together for ages, and all that TMI talk from Jada was a clue.

  36. girlwithapearl says:

    naww. She’s a giant famwhore and I’ve never been a fan of Will’s movies, but they’re both so big-headed they’re perfect for each other.

  37. dread pirate cuervo says:

    Unless one or both of them is coming out, I call BS. Divorce is not an option for control freak Jada, remember?

  38. BeckyR says:

    Sounds like Will needs help with his lyrics..can the man speak proper English? As for a split, could care less, but they are always mouthing about how great their marriage is.

  39. jo says:

    I can not stand her or her bratty kids.. tired of her incessent bragging.. she is so masculine.. ever notice when they are photographed sitting she always has her legs apart like a guy and he crosses his like a girl.. so weird

  40. WOM says:

    If they separate I hope Jada gets custody of Scientology and Will gets the kids. But I don’t see it happening, they’re too entrenched in the “church” for this to be permitted.

  41. Beautrice says:

    I admire them alot, hoping this isn’t true.

  42. Juice says:

    I can’t help but to laugh if this is true.. She never shuts up about what an insane sex life they have…blah blah blah..i can’t STAND when people do that…

  43. Mary jones says:

    They are both gay everyone in the industry knows this. Nothing wrong with it but I think it would damage Wills career more than hers,if he admitted it.

  44. ladybert62 says:

    so lets see:

    (1) Did COS approve this?
    (2) Does this mean that he/she/they are coming out of the closet now?
    (3) Will this finally mean the end of all their interviews and her comments about the amazing, wonderful, satisfying, cant-describe-how-great their sex life is?
    (4) Is there a third person responsible?

    Inquiring minds need answers!

  45. maggiegrace says:

    Brad and Angie will split upp at some point. Mark my words.

  46. eternalcanadian says:

    I smell CO$ all over this! It’s like Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman Part 2! :o

  47. LAK says:

    what is is about the CO$ that attracts all the gays and their beards??!!

  48. 4Real says:

    I think they are BOTH GAY so I wouldn’t be suprised but I’m confused since OPEN MARRAIGES usually always work out don’t they?? (sarcasm)

  49. Cheyenne says:

    When it comes from a reputable source, I’ll believe it. ITW has never been a reputable source for anything.

  50. Happy21 says:

    Good. Now Will Smith can be with Halle Berry…LOL, for some reason I have ALWAYS pictured those two together. Not sure why. I think that when couples are constantly bragging about what a great relationship they have and are bragging about their sex lives, etc they are saying it to themselves as much as they are to anyone else – to convince themselves that its true. I can say I don’t totally believe it – not yet. When People announces it, I will be 100% certain, now its just speculation.

  51. Roma says:

    Was Will ever in consideration for the lawsuit about the A lister who gave someone herpes in Vegas?

    It was settled quietly without releasing any names. When I actually sat and read through it I got a very strong gay vibe. Hmm.

  52. Violet says:

    I haven’t looked at a photo of Jada in years, and she looks really different. Not Botox different, but major surgery different.

    It’s ITW, so I’d prefer to see another source before getting all excited. That said, Will and Jada apparently have an open marriage; maybe Will got someone pregnant?

  53. weeble says:

    I like them as a couple, and whatever rumors or perceptions about them came about, they still stuck through it. I hope this isn’t true.

  54. Teddy says:

    I thought it was well known that they are both gay.

  55. lucy2 says:

    I’ll be stunned if this is true. I think they’re all too wrapped up in their brand and the kids careers to split up.

  56. Truthful says:

    nothing would shock me. They are human and probably have outgrown each other.

    Will and Jada can now be true to themselves. aren’t they in their late 40′s??

    how dreadful to have to live how society deems as normal…and to sneak around w/who you really want to be with.

    maybe its not true but I’ll never buy that Will is into Chicks.

    Benny Medina messed that one up lonnng ago.

  57. brin says:

    US Weekly says they are not splitting up.

  58. Rita says:

    Family members are denying the seperation (Radar) as are close co-workers. Family member said all is lovey-dovey. Might just be a delaying tactic or In-Touch is out of touch.

  59. Quest says:

    I am waiting till it is official, this is coming from ITW other mags are stating otherwise….I’m whipin’ my hair back and forth until the news becomes official.

  60. MJ says:

    I love that JP rocks the natural hair most of the time. It looks awesome.

  61. Hellen says:

    OH NOES! All that hotter-than-hell sex life and uber-togetherness and family famewhoring has suddenly screeched to a halt?!

  62. anti says:

    sounds like a recent blind item too…

  63. LAK says:

    we all know that In Touch is usually more wrong than right, but this particular couple don’t play the usual famewhory game that would interest a rag like In Touch. I think there may be truth to this. Also, Will Smith has the scariest publicist in Hollywood. She’s done a very good job of keeping him out of the tabloids or even getting papped. In Touch would be very silly to piss her off.

  64. GossipVixen says:

    I still don’t see it happening. Will and Jada are like a Brand – unless one of them is coming out of the closet I say no.

  65. Rita says:

    Personally, I hope the Smiths don’t respond. It would be like “F U this is a private matter and that’s how we’ll handle it”. I’d respect that even though I want to know the truth so bad I have to pee.

  66. Leticia says:

    Quest – hilarious comment about hair whipping!

    Will someone please elaborate on the Benny Medina clue above?

  67. anon says:

    @Quest:”….I’m whipin’ my hair back and forth until the news becomes official”

    lol :-)

  68. rose80 says:

    Will and Jada have never been known to address any rumors surrounding their marriage, so not releasing a statement through their rep doesn’t surprise me.

  69. Seal Team 6 says:

    I am saying it’s true, and I’m curious if Xenu has anything to do with it, Like Cruise and Nicole Kidman (or Cruise and Mimi Rogers)?

  70. Mermaid says:

    oh joy! Anything to steal the limelight from the Kardashians is fine by me!

  71. Seal Team 6 says:

    Got a gay vibe from Jada during her “Different World” days. Who knows. COS is very anti gay.

  72. Kimble says:

    I wouldn’t shed a tear – these two are so smug!

  73. Jayna says:

    Her cheek implants are awful. And when a couple keeps talking about their hot sex life ad nauseum, it means they don’t have a great sex life.

  74. Rhiley says:

    Yeah, they are the holders in a key club. Their marriage is as open as open as a can of Budweiser in a pool hall on Saturday night. I bet if they do divorce it will have to do with the direction their children are going in. Will probably don’t like his baby girl whipping her hair all over every where.

  75. Zzzzzzzzz says:

    A bit shocked but not surprised, if that makes sense. Didn’t think either of them would have the guts to actually call it a day, seeing as how they’ve tom-tommed their family about so much. That said, a split is always sad, especially when kids are involved. But this is Hollywood, no doubts they’ll bounce back and quick. Oh and it really bugs me when stories like this ‘suprise’ everyone when the tabloids who could have been scooping this out continue to obsess about Brangelina. Ridiculous.

  76. Ron says:

    This made me giggle like Anderson Cooper.

  77. the original bellaluna says:

    Okay, as a Will Smith fan, this is what I’ve heard to be true:

    1) His first wife was a raging bitch;

    2) He mis-managed his money (he was young and very generous) when he first “made it.” Like, “treated the cast of Fresh Prince to a Hawaiian vacation” generous. And wifey HATED that about him;

    3) Jada auditioned for the role of “Lisa” (his GF on the show) and was turned down because the big-wigs thought she was too short and the two looked “ridiculous” next to one another;

    4) Will re-bounded from that financial situation, and never let it happen again;

    5) They both love their kids.

    If this is true, I will kinda be surprised. If this isn’t true, I will be glad.

    I like them together; I think they love each other; the nature of their relationship is their own.

  78. Catherine says:

    That entire family is so in your face and annoying. It’s like they can’t function if they haven’t taken over the room with their big mouths. Ugh. Sad for the kids if the parents split.

  79. TheHeat says:

    Perhaps they aren’t giving any personal responses because they don’t feel the need to dignify b.s. with a response.

    I certainly wouldn’t feel the need to justify my marriage to tabloids.

  80. Cheyenne says:

    The “unidentified family member” who denied they are splitting up is Trey Smith, Will’s son by his first marriage.

    http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2011/08/will-smith-son-trey-denies-parents-split

  81. Commenting on the update**I’m glad it’s not true.Its sad when families breakup.

  82. Maureen says:

    Will Smith was the emcee of our Shareholders meeting back in June and he played a video of Jada from the set of..whatever her show is called… saying “I love you and miss you baby”…etc I almost hurled. He also played clips of his kids doing “their thing.” I actually lost a lot of respect for him because he was there to entertain us, not promote his family…or shall I say his business.

  83. Roma says:

    Random sports trivia: Trey Smith played on the same high school football team as Wayne Gretzky’s son.

    That must be a nice private school.

  84. gg says:

    I whip mah divorce papers back and forth …

  85. Kim says:

    R they finally going to be honest about their sexualitites? Doubtful.

  86. CHRISTIAN_GIRL says:

    Okay, so when is the serious problem plagued “Men In Black” due out?

    And better still, When will it garner any interest? Just saying.

    Oh wait, only another couple is accused of pimping their kids and relationship whether true or not. I get it.

  87. OXA says:

    So Jada did not have an affair with Marc but what about Will?

  88. Onyx XV says:

    Slightly off topic, but I can’t help noticing – how to’ up is Jada looking these days? Man, she is looking weathered and downright ROUGH. I didn’t realize she was from Baltimore, and she sure does look like one of the crackheads off The Wire! GF needs to gain a little weight, soften the sharp edges. Just sayin’…

  89. mel says:

    I seriously doubt Jada had a affair with Marc Anthony. What would be the purpose and who would want to bone that skelton.

  90. Fatkid says:

    “official” denial issued to people. Smoke/fire? Hope not…

    http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20522228,00.html

  91. Lauren says:

    Jada will be a nobody without Will. Will is the one with all the power and $$$. Jada always seemed like a controlling diva to me. Sorry , I don’t like her. Will is an amazing actor. I thought they were scientologists..are they allowed to divorce?

  92. bitchbelying says:

    ITS NOT TRUE. LORD! I HOPE NOT!!

  93. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Told ya they weren’t splitting up.

  94. Diane says:

    If I had to take a wild, uninformed guess, I’d guess that the COS played a part in this. Smith has made some ingratiating comments about the space worshippers, but he also has spoken about the deep faith of his grandmother and how he respects that. I’d bet money that Jada bought into the COS thing hook, line and sinker and he’s resisting. Look at her, she’s starting to look like an alien. A mean, unfriendly one. Making MIB films might be a blast, but maybe Will’s just tired of fighting off aliens in real life.

  95. Beautrice says:

    Lol every happy couple is gay!!! Give me a break please!

  96. kerfuffles says:

    Since Jada & Will talk endlessly and openly about their relationship and *alleged* sex life, they can’t very well claim that whether they have split up or not is nobody’s business. They’ve made their relationship a business, period.

    Anybody else think the denial from People was a little weak? Yes, it said they were “intact” (intact??? what kind of word is that to use?) and haven’t split but not like “happily together” or any such adjectives.

    Maybe I’m too much of a gossip conspiracy theorist, but my smutty senses are tingling….

    (And I agree with those that think they are eachother’s beards; there have been reliable blinds about them for ages and the COS connection just adds fire to those, ahem, flames).

  97. Nah, nah & nah... says:

    “We were on a break!” – Ross Gellar

  98. Sheigh says:

    Mmmh, there’s no big smoke without fire!

  99. rissa says:

    not splitting. people got a denial

  100. the original bellaluna says:

    I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, but just because a denial was issued doesn’t mean it’s not true. (Take that, double-negative-publicist-issued non-speak!) :D

  101. Cheyenne says:

    Some people on here act like they want them to split up. How can anyone hope a family of five breaks up? Damn, that’s ugly…

  102. Firecracker says:

    Strange choice of words for the denial “our marriage is intact”. Not that they love each other, or anything, just that it’s intact. Could be that they whipped their hair back and forth too much and caused brain damage so that they can’t think properly. (I stole that idea from Quest, loved that comment Quest!)

  103. Firecracker says:

    Absolutely, Bellaluna! They might “officially” make the announcement to split up in a few weeks or a month.

  104. You don't say says:

    @cheyenne-Why surprised. This is not the first time folks have wished for a break-up that involved a family. I find it sad and rather mean spirited as well.

  105. Nah, nah & nah... says:

    1.) I still kinda like them, still kinda think they’re both bi in an open marriage and still kinda think that’s their business. I think they do have all of the great sex, just not always with each other. You like it; I love it. Go for it.
    2.) I doubt they’re breaking up because they seem to have worked enough flexibility into their marriage to be able to withstand “extended breaks” from each other with others, especially anyone of the Anthony persuasion who can’t even keep his own homes intact.
    3.) Their primary commitment seems to be to their family not The Family (ne’ The Gay Lifestyle) and to the institution of marriage, not so much to each other. This kinda renders a separation unnecessary. So, unless one of them has decided to make that commitment with someone else, it’s cheaper to keep her (him) and this rumor is just someone at ITW trying to love up on Kaiser on the sly by fulfilling her pre-awards and tv season dreams:-).
    4.) If they have any COS leanings (which I think they do, just kinda lean with the Xene’s, not fly on the spaceship fulltime), I think that’s probably what brought them together in the first place. I mean, Jada was raised in some kinda “lifestyle” in B’more by her grandmother that encouraged personal spiritual and existensial exploration, the trying of all kinds of philosophies and methodologies (I forget what it’s called – Universal Brotherhood or something). Will went from one of the first big rap bankruptcies to be one of the biggest tv/movie stars ever. I’m sure some COS’ers helped out with that there, so I doubt that COS would be the cause of a split as it probably played a big role in bringing and keeping them together. Remember, COS might not promote homsexuality, but if you’re just having same sex sex and not labeling yourself “homosexual” but being candid in your auditing sessions, what’s their policy on that? I think it’s kinda Eddie Long-like in that respect.
    5.) Benny Medina started (and literally is, with Quincy Jones,) the Fresh Prince tv show so that’s the BM reference talked about above. He’s certifably “2 thumbs up and a snap with a jazz hands big finish” and is probably why folks always associate Will with The Family. While I wouldn’t be surprised if Will and Ben have double-dated in the past, I’m not so sure Will is still smoking in the boys room that much. I think he and Jada are probably quite bored with The Family, very enamored with their family right now and never really seemed concerned with labeling anything but their marriage, so one of them coming out to live all Rosie O’Donnell-like with someone else doesn’t seem that likely. I mean, why? The whole labeling thing isn’t for that celebrity’s peace of mind; it’s for middle America and box office ticket sales. The celeb knows who they’re screwing and why. At 40, I think that whole crew has decided to leave the coming out party to Queen Latifah (who I also love and wish she’d just say it already, goshdarnit).

    This is a gossip site. Superstar couples like Will & Jada breaking up is good for gossip, so yeah, some peeps find the possibility good gossip. I find the rumors and the weird denials good gossip worthy of discussion on a gossip site.

    It’s not like what anybody “wishes” in the comments here is going to actually break them up or have any impact at all on their relationship.

    I seriously doubt when they are sitting in their $30M+ mansion that they give a flying fig what I think :-)

    Oh now this makes sense just more blow back from the J-lo drama….ITW sure knows how to get attention.

  108. Andie B says:

    This is sad if it’s true. I have been a fan of Will’s for years. I’m sure he must have a massive ego, but I’d bought into the ‘happy Smith family’ that you see in the photos and the interviews. If they have broken up, and it’s due to Jada having an affair with Marc Anthony, then I will have to seriously question her taste. The guy is revolting.

  109. anonymous says:

    Jada have started to look tragic for a long time. I could see Will going for some body like Zoe Saldana, I can bet you that girl is in the mix
    since the last movie they made together. She is younger than Jada and more beautiful and starting to do action films.

    COS is really, really anti-gay. The writings of LRH see no difference between “same-sex sex” and homosexuality. You are pretty much teh worst people in the whole world if you are gay: subversives, covert hostiles, etc. And, remember NO DEVIATION is allowed in the teachings of LRH.

    This isn’t a great link, but it’s a decent jump-off point:

    I don’t buy it. It’s tabloids looking to sell magazines. They are too family oriented.

  112. Chris says:

    She’s not aging as well as he is. She’s three years younger than Will but looks about ten years older.

    Thanks for the link. Good info.

    I don’t know. It’s obvious their beginnings are clearly homophobic and the Prop 8 thing and refusal to denounce is homophobia personified, especially after the Haggis request. But, L Ron’s son was gay? That’s new to me. And, aside from the Prop 8 issues, they seem to be patently against then weirdly contradictory in their modern approach to homosexuality as an evasive tactic, kinda like a lot of religions that end up having same sex sex scandals.

    Their 2 biggest celebs, Cruise and Travolta…well, need I repeat it? ’cause I really don’t want to. These guys, along with Will and Jada, tow the line on the whole perfect family thing while also having years of same sex sex rumors attached to their names. I just don’t think any of that is coincidence. Don’t know what it is or why, but find it hard to see as a coincidence.

  114. Ruby says:

    I remember back when Cindy Crawford’s marriage to Richard Gere was rumored to be breaking up so they put out a big ‘ad’ in some newspaper stating that it was a big lie…..later their marriage broke up.

    Your right on target there, Seal Team.

    COS has tried to censor some of L. Ron Hubbard’s earlier anti-gay writings, but it’s still out there. The refusal of the COS to condemn some of this anti-gay stuff is one of the reasons director Paul Haggis left the church.

    The (unconfirmed) scuttlebutt about some gays/lesbians attraction to COS is that the COS says it can “cure” the gayness through auditing and the like. Of course, auditing involves these celebs confessing these aspects of their life (along with whatever the actors/actress feels embarrassed or concerned about), which COS then has a record of and can use to pressure the celeb into staying wit the “Church.”

    COS aside, even if Will & Jada swing both (or entirely the other) ways, it doesn’t mean they can’t have a happy family life or love each other, too. I just think it’s a shame that if someone like Will Smith is gay or bi, he doesn’t feel comfortable being open about it because he thinks it will hurt his “brand” of big action star.

    And in Will & Jada’s case, it’s not even that they aren’t open about it, but that they go so overboard trying to hide it with all this “we have sex 50 times a day” stuff they are constantly selling.

    Anyway…that’s just my gossipy speculation about it all.

  117. Rita says:

    “Our marriage is intact”, strange way to put it.

  118. taxi says:

    They do ridiculous together, just like Kim Kardashian & her husband do!
    I never saw “FP of Bel Air”, but saw a couple of Will’s movies – ok, bland, affable. Can’t stand her on “her” TV show, about a nurse. Saw the boy on a talk show (maybe Letterman?) after he made a movie. What a little arrogant snot! Made me re-think the Smith family values.

  119. Jenni says:

    @Chris Personally I think it’s just Jada has shanked her face ! :( Will, he’s cute, got that boyish smile all the time that looks youthful, his energy is youthful, but to me, he still looks older than Jada upon inspection.
    Jada has always been very pretty to me personally, so I wish she’d just CUT IT with the face crap- botox,implants, whatever it is is so freakifying her. And I think it’s a bad example for her little girl, especially at that vulnerable age she’s at.
    As a couple I think they’re very cool. I am happy this was a rumor, and hope they can keep on keeping on together.

  120. Cheyenne says:

    @you don’t say: Not surprised, just disgusted…

  121. Sinder says:

    @53 yeah, that’d be a match made in heaven. Two egomaniacal fat heads getting together. Sheesh!

  122. Alix says:

    Denials mean noooooooooothing.

    That said, maybe the Co$ is doing something frantic to try and keep them together.

  123. Elizabeth says:

    “we are still together and our marriage is intact”?
    Doesn’t sound like a rousing denial to me. What does “intact” mean in this context?! None of this “we’re still deeply in love” shit for those two! “Intact”, indeed.

  124. Memphis says:

    I would be shocked if this one was true. And considering it’s IN TOUCH magazine, I have serious doubt as to their “sources”

  125. EW! says:

    Jada’s looking like the black version of Cher…damn!

  126. Maddox says:

    Wtf In Touch? Business must really be in the shitter to perpetrate such a silly move… Unless, it’s really fo real and Will/Jada are in a position of having to issue a denial in order to stay in control of media coverage. Personally, I wouldn’t be surprised to hear a formal separation announcement a month down the road.

  127. the original bellaluna says:

    “Our marriage is intact” is not all that odd, when you really think about it. “Intact” means it still exists, it’s not broken…

    ITW didn’t claim they don’t love each other; ITW claimed they were separating.

    Now, I believe the Sci-Co$ connection to be more strongly attached to Jada than Will. You know his devout Grammama would bust that ass if she heard he was messing with the devil that is Sci-Co$! (LL’s would do the same. Some Grammamas don’t play!!)

    I HOPE it’s not true, as I’ve liked them together for years. I think they love each other, and really love their kids. Anything contradicting that would surprise me.

    p.s. IF they have an open marriage, it’s their deal. Obviously something they agreed upon prior to the big day.

    p.p.s. Hubs and I have AWESOME sex, but we do not succumb to hubris and tell everyone about it. Sometimes, a little mystery is really ok! :D

  128. Playlist says:

    Although I’m not buying this story as true, “right now” I do think there is some credibility to these rumors. First, the house is shown on the market (Architectural Digest is the same thing as showing your house on the market). Second, recently there was a help wanted ad posted for help moving an “independent school” in Calabasas (coincidence?). That is where the Smith’s alternative school is/was located. And third, Jada may be cheating on Will, but it’s not with another man. It’s about as secret in Hollywood as John T.’s lifestyle (which means it’s no secret at all). Fourth, someone started this and the media ran with it. AND Will and Jada made sure the Entertainment shows ran a denial TODAY not tomorrow, which means they had to add it at the last minute, as the shows had already taped their entire segments for today. Either the Smith’s are pulling up roots and moving their entourage and lifestyle, or they are splitting (but not announcing it yet).

    Celebrities absolutely hate when the media beats them to the punch regarding splits. They will deny it so they can later split on “their terms”. Will and Jada have several business ventures together that probably involve other investors, so they might have had to do some quick damage control today before they are ready to announce a split on their own terms.

    Regarding the Smith’s “amazing sex life” – those that have it don’t talk about it. Those that don’t go on and on about the sex life they are not having. And for the record, the Smith’s are not members of COS, but they sure sound like they should be, since most of COS is made up of hypocritical gay celebrities that can’t admit or support being gay.

  129. ZenB!tch says:

    Marc Anthony ~ Will Smith ~ Marc Anthony ~ Will Smith….

    Jada, you cannot be that stupid. I get that Scientology can get a girl down but hello??? Will Smith tall, buff, funny never rumored to have beaten anyone vs. Marc Anthony? PLEASE NO!

  130. Amanda G says:

    Took them awhile to deny it and the denial doesn’t seem very positive. Like “we are very much in love” or whatever else they could have said to make it more firm. Strange. Honestly, I’d be sad if their family broke up, but I’d be happy for Will. I can’t stand Jada and her attitude. Their family has become a business though so they will stay together just so they can pimp out their kids some more.

  131. KLO says:

    I can recall an interview that Jada did years ago. About her first having doubts marrying Will. And then agreeing on the condition that when there will be a marriage, there will never be a divorce, that they would live on the opposite ends of their house if they couldn’t live together, but that they’d never divorce. I wonder if she meant it.

  132. Shy says:

    I don’t know. Remember like it was with Eva Longoria and Tony Parker? When TMZ reported about Split and they denied it like crazy. And then bam – in few days official split.

    I won’t be surprised if InTouch somehow find out about split and Smiths wanted to announce it in their own way so they denied. And then in a few weeks there could be official split. They all are such a liars in Hollywood.

  133. Joe's Mom says:

    After all this, TMZ is back to saying a source says there are significant problems in their marriage, they haven’t split yet, definitely a possibility. Also, the article is speculating about the “our marriage is intact” statement, as opposed to why didn’t they go the more traditional PR route and say “they’re still in love and committed to each other”? Their sources allegedly said the language in that release was carefully constructed. Hey . . . perhaps that “blind” item was about these two. . . just kidding, I sure dunno! Stay tuned, as TMZ said.

  135. Rose says:

    Hmm the word ‘intact’ doesn’t inspire great confidence. I love that they’ve basically whored out their children, their movies, music and their house but they are ‘reluctant to respond to these types of press reports’…you can’t have it both ways guys.

    What did Jada DO to her face? Cheekbones from hell.
