Jada Pinkett Smith gets photographed without her wedding ring, significant?

Jada is shown here wearing her ring on 8-1-11. Go to X-17 to see the ringless photos, which look staged

Photo agency X-17 and MSNBC’s The Scoop are making a big deal out of the fact that Jada Pinkett Smith stepped out without her massive pear-shaped diamond wedding ring. I did some forensic analysis (ha!) of older photos of Jada, and even when she’s casually dressed and out without Will, she wears that ginormous bauble. For example here she is at the LA Times Festival Of Books in April, wearing jeans and a jean jacket, but still with her ring.

I couldn’t find any photos of her without it at any of our agencies (which don’t have recent photos). I did find these photos of her ringless in late August, which could possibly be dismissed since she’s out exercising. Given the fact that she still isn’t wearing her ring, I would say that things are close to over between her and Will. Remember how they were rumored to be planning to sue In Touch for their split article last month? We haven’t heard anything about that since.

So did Jada cheat with Marc Anthony on the set of HawthoRNe? Marc has denied it, but I bet there was at least an inappropriately close “friendship” there. That can happen when one party wants out of a marriage, and it often blows up into an affair. An emotional affair can be just as devastating to a marriage, though, and whatever went on between Jada and Marc may have hastened the end of Marc’s marriage to J.Lo.

Are Jada and Will the next celebrities who are going to announce a split? I wouldn’t count on it. I bet they’ll keep it under wraps for as long as possible. It’s probably the best way to deal with it, given their kids’ ages (10 and 13) and how an announcement could affect them.

    I think that Will&Jada are the type of people who would try anything first to fix the marriage. I don’t think they are the types to get a divorce very quick.

  2. whitedaisy says:

    Given that she is wearing a ring on her other hand it seems significant.
    But my oh my she looks hard, doesn’t she?

  3. Nonny says:

    This woman looks like a walking skeleton. Eat a burger please!

  4. Bubulle says:

    More proof that open marriage can’t work.

  5. Quest says:

    Conspiracy theories anyone. I’m not sure if the read anything much into this, I’ll play it safe and wait. She is getting hard looking

  6. ladybert62 says:

    I do not like this woman. Please someone give her a hairbrush and get a stylist to cut and shape her hair and while you are at it, get a stylist to pick her clothes for her – she is a horrible dresser.

    Poor Will – but I think you are better off without her. Sorry for the kids too.

  7. spinner says:

    Jada looks like she was carved out of a rock. I think they are both gay & tired of living the contracted lie. But what will $cientology have to say about this.
    Tisk. Tisk.

  8. Dibba says:

    I’ve always liked him and detested her for some reason. She gives me the creeps.

  9. Eve says:

    I always try to resist the temptation of reading blind items as much as I can but I was doing my daily reading of MK’s posts on Dlisted when I spotted this:


  10. Raised Brow says:

    Sorry to the Jada-haters to throw in something positive about her, but her Shoe Game is on POINT!!!

    Yep, I said it.

    Back to the hate.

  11. layla says:

    Maybe her fingers were swollen.
    Maybe she forgot to put it on after the shower.
    Maybe they hate each other and are getting a divorce
    Maybe a Xenu alien ate it
    Maybe its getting cleaned.
    Maybe she’s just f*ckign with you.

    Seriously… to dissected every minutiae to this extent is ridiculous.

  12. phlyfiremama says:

    Well, that explains the Blind Gossip blind item~they DO actually have 3 children, although technically the oldest son is Will’s with another woman. They were the only couple who fit, but I couldn’t figure out the 3rd kid….

  13. Nancy C. says:

    she’s too trashy for me. trying to be the ‘hood’.

  14. Iggles says:

    @ Eve: Saw that blind yesterday! I totally think it’s them!

  15. Sue says:

    I say it’s significant when you take someone who used to wear her ring all the time, up until rumors of a split Jada stop wearing her ring. My take is that they have split but still live together as a family for the kids, like they have separate bedrooms and are allowed to see other people on the down low as for divorce I don’t see that happing until the kids turn 18.

  16. the original bellaluna says:

    I don’t know…I just don’t know. The blinds sure sound like them, but is a blind supposed to be obvious?

  17. Christine says:

    Sometimes blinds are obvious for a reason – they are “blind” so they can’t sue, but the information is out there. And no, Mark Anthony never had an inappropriate relationship with Jada because JADA LIKES WOMEN. And maybe she agrees with the rest of the world that Mark Anthony is Skeletor.

  18. F5 says:

    I guess the contract expired

  19. Denise says:

    No story here…..moving on….

  20. Bubulle says:

    Another fake blind item by BG , Jaden and Willow are homeschooled, how are they fighting at school ?


  21. YoursTruely says:

    I think the media is looking for a new couple to nitpick at and Jada and Will are lucky contestants…nothing is wrong with their marriage…Will never wears a ring and Jada hardly ever does that’s not new…I wish the media would find a new couple to pick apart b/c Will and Jada aren’t budging and the fabricated stories are not believable…IMO

  22. Liz says:


    That’s a really good point. My fingers swell up in anything approaching heat and I can’t wear rings. I think that sometimes things just happen and people can’t wear their wedding rings. Either temporarily or – in my case – permanently.

    But I’ve always thought their marriage was in trouble. All the talk about how much they did it made me think they hadn’t touched each other in years. I don’t care enough to find out if they’re really bearding, but I don’t trust people who put their kids in the spotlight.

    So I feel for the kids, even if their parents aren’t getting divorced.

  23. sassenach says:

    If you look up old pics of Jada, she hardly wore her ring. I do not understand why people think they are splitting up just because Intouch Weekly said they were. These two would do anything to save their marriage. They are in it for the long haul.

  24. Kim says:

    are they both finally going to come out of the closet?

  25. Lauren says:

    JPS would be nobody without Will…and she looks scary. Why are these skeleton chicks so full of themselves?

  26. Dibba says:

    Always talking about their sex life. dead give-away.

  27. Slim Charles says:

    I love that she wore those shoes to the LA Times Festival of Books! I guess that’s dressing down.

  28. mln76 says:

    I don’t think Marc was involved in the split did you ever see these?


    If there was anything to the rumors neither would be seen together. I think if it’s over it’s more than likely because the other ‘rumors’ about them are true and a renegotiation of the contract stalled.

  29. Turtle Dove says:

    Sad news if true. I like them together a lot and they seem(ed) really in-tune with each other and their family.

    I respected Will tremendously because not every man is strong enough to allow a woman to be strong.

  30. Lantana says:

    I really like her black outfit at the top, and usually when I like an outfit I scroll down thru the comments and it gets trashed so I just keep my (obviously fashion-challenged) mouth shut…imagine my surprise when I went through these 29 comments (above) and no one trashed her outfit. I feel like I owe y’all a big thank you!

  31. Aqua says:

    I’m going to wait till their rep confirms or denies a split through the Holy Grail of tabloid magazines otherwise known as people.

  32. G says:

    Just the ring is missing? No one wears the good jewlery EVERY day. Maybe looking for some press though.

  33. Your mama says:

    Wait are they in fact Scientologists?? I thought they were being wooed, but didn’t bite.

  34. Kelly says:

    Can’t stand her or her husband, ugh

  35. Ben says:

    Does nobody else believe the recurring rumours that they’re both gay? Wasn’t Will meant to be sleeping with some B-list RnB singer? *googles*… Trey Songz (urgh)?

    I genuinely want to know – are those just malicious / off-base? I always thought that was one of the true ones :s Anybody?

  36. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    Eve thanks for the blind item post – I don’t think it is them because the blind item mentions three kids and I believe Jada and Will only have two?

  37. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    Put a beard on that French President Sarkozy and you’ve got Marc Anthony, thanks for the link mln in this insomniac hour.

  38. the original bellaluna says:

    Mitch – Will’s oldest is from his previous marriage. He’s the one who was denying the rumours on Twitter (or whatever) and then they have Willow and Jaden together.

  39. Chris says:

    Kick this frizzy hair ho to the curb! Go bang Marc some more you sleaze. Will, move on and find a decent person to be with…hopefully a more feminine looking woman.

  40. Sydney says:

    Wow people come on Jada is an amazing role model in the world of women. Now i know pleanty of women who have been married a long time and don’t wear a wedding ring. Now if something is really going on then i’m sorry to hear that, but that’s their life and they can do whatever they want with it, and they definatly don’t need us judging them on the way. So lay off a little!
