Star: Will Smith & Jada Pinkett are “tired of faking it” and are headed for divorce

At the end of the day, I always end up admiring Star Magazine and The National Enquirer. They’re the two seediest tabloids in America, and they get decent scoops often enough that I often put stock in whatever they’re reporting. I also appreciate how ballsy they are in going after certain celebrities that most of the other magazines just refuse to touch. Back in August, In Touch Weekly shocked everybody by claiming that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith were “separated” and headed for a massive split, all because Jada was fooling around with Marc Anthony when they worked together on HawthoRNe. In the following month, both Will and Jada stepped out and did some damage control, threatened to sue In Touch, and all of the “respectable” tabloids cleaned up the mess and claimed that Jada and Will were just fine, thank you very much.

Now Star Magazine is doubling-down on In Touch’s claims. According to their sources, Will and Jada are totally headed for divorce:

After 14 years of marriage, Will Smith, 43, and Jada Pinkett Smith, 40, seem to be heading straight for divorce, sources reveal in a new Star magazine report. Endless fights, Will’s nights out partying with the guys and sleeping in separate bedrooms have left the couple living two “separate lives.”

“They’ve been faking it for a long time and they don’t want to live a lie anymore,” a source tells Star magazine. “Living and sleeping separately — and now Will finally walking out on Jada — have pushed them to their limit. They’re done.”

The marriage is done. “Will and Jada are finished,” says another insider. “They’re still keeping up appearances because they worry divorce could hurt their careers, but there’s no turning back now. It needs to end.”

Sources expect that the couple will file for divorce quite soon — and that a nasty, drawn-out battle over their $520 million will follow.

In August, the couple fought off rumors that they had already split, and they tried to work on their issues.

“They’ve been trying to work through it, but things came to a head in early November, when they got into a huge knock-down, drag-out fight,” a source shares. “They put up a good front in public, but behind doors they really fight like cats and dogs. They’ve always had issues in their relationship, and now they’re bubbling to the surface.”

Will “has taken to spending many nights” in a different bedroom from Jada, notes an insider. “He’s barely speaking to Jada as it is. But when they fight, he’ll storm out and go off to spend time with his guy friends. He and Jada are living separate lives.”

Will has also been traveling all over the world with his guy pals, almost as to forget about his problems back at home. On Nov. 26, he was spotted at Drink! Win Bar in Port of Spain. Later that night, he was out until 4 a.m. at 51 Degrees. He “wasn’t wearing a wedding ring,” says a witness.

“Will feels like he’s living a lie for everyone else, but he knows it needs to end,” explains a source. “They can’t keep pretending.”

It’s weird because Page Six just had a report about Will and Jada being out together in Miami a few nights ago – go here to see Page Six’s report. They were at a club called Liv, listening to DJ David Guetta. Anyway, it will be interesting to see how Will and Jada react to this story. If they just do the bare minimum of damage control – vague threats to sue, a photo op, a publicist’s denial – I will think that something is sketchy. I don’t believe all of the conspiracy theories about them, but I do think something weird is going on with their marriage. It’s been ages since Jada has given an interview about their sex life. THAT speaks volumes.

    “Their” $520 million??? She hasn’t done anything since A Low Down Dirty Shame. Did anyone even watch HawthoRNe??!

    • ahoyhoy says:

      Whether you agree or not, Will made most of his $$$ after marriage. It’s the law that those assets are split. Especially when children are involved, it’s unfair for one parent to be living in a mansion and another in a shack. It can cause the kids to favor one parent over another.

      • MW says:

        Yeah, in California, all earnings and assets accumulated during the course of a marriage are community property, split 50/50 if they divorce. I don’t think it’s to do with if they did divorce that the breadwinner would live in a mansion and the other in a shack, it’s more like no matter who’s earning what, they both supposedly are in it as a joint venture and should both benefit from the rewards they receive during the course of it. However, they both have to split any debts half and half, too, don’t forget.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Yes, since they hit that “magic number 10” she gets half. That’s how it works in Cali without a pre-nup.

      MW, you’d be surprised what some men will do to their ex-wives. Him living in a mansion and her living in a shack isn’t actually too far-fetched.

      • Shoes says:

        IIRC,10 years is a “magic number” relating to alimony, but community property is divided 50/50 starting from Day 1; generally speaking, anything acquired during the marriage is community property and is divided equally, even if you were married 72 days. Assuming there isn’t a valid prenup that stipulates otherwise.

      • MayaMae says:

        That’s why Tom Cruise shocked Nicole Kidman by filing for divorce right before their tenth anniversary.

  2. fabgrrl says:

    “Guy friends”, “guy pals”, “partying with the guys”. Star Magazine sure wants to let us know that Will Smith has been spending a lot of time with males, instead of his wife. It’s like they are trying to tell us something….

  3. ahoyhoy says:

    Over-sharers like Jada are very often big fakers. I have never believed this relationship was anything more than convenience & for having a family. Nothing new for closeted folks. jmo

    • Palermo says:

      Exactly, I totally agree. The few couples I have known in “real life” who said things like “we’ve never had a single argument!” are always the ones who end up divorced.

    • whatevs says:

      people who go at lengths to prove they’re happy are always the most unhappy and desperate.

    • lucy2 says:

      I agree too. People like that are too concerned with the image of the relationship than the relationship itself.

      • Mugs says:

        AMEN remember Christina A. talking about “naked Sundays” then divorce was around the corner

  4. Justaposter says:

    Well you know, gotta have some really good ‘busting up’ storys for the Holidays. 😉

    Que the Angie and Brad are breaking up stories in 3….2…..1….

  5. JaneWonderfalls says:

    I’m not shocked at all if it is true because marriages end even after 20yrs, but I will be a bit disappointed cause I actually like Will and Jada and I thought they had a strong marriage especially to be in Hollyweird, but nothing last forever best of luck to both of them.

  6. ShanKat says:

    Now THAT is bangs trauma.

    If they’re tired of faking it, that should make it unanimous.

    • Lisa says:

      I was thinking the same thing … OMG those bangs are traumatic !!! I’ve always had the feeling that she’s gay…not that there’s anything wrong with that, just seemed like a really fake relationship to me.

    • Cidee says:

      Thank God she plays a nurse b/c that trauma requires serious medical attention. He CAN’T be gay b/c no self-respecting gay man would allow her to go out with that hair.

    • novaraen says:

      They’re clip on bangs. No joke. Ugly too.

  7. CandyKay says:

    Don’t like them, don’t like their showbizzy kids.

  8. Rhiley says:

    I kind of suspect that she is a drug addict, like maybe steroids or something. She is always so sweaty and manish looking.

  9. Canada Guy says:

    Wait a second! Won’t that put them in the Scientologist dog house?
    She looks like a total bitch. Always has.
    I think thats where the kids get their holier than thou smirk.

  10. Tierra says:

    I was just wondering whatever happened with their scandal. One day they were all over the news and then it went quiet.
    I just hope they keep their kids out of the spotlight. It would be one thing if they actually had some talent but they’re just getting TV/music spots based on their name alone.

    • spinner says:

      I just hope they keep their kids out of the spotlight.

      Too late. They have those kids propped up in the spotlight already. UGH!

  11. capepopsie says:

    I don´t blame him. She seems like a difficult person to be around. On the other hand, he´s probably not easy himself. I suppose living your lives in public is strenuous on any relationship.

  12. spinner says:

    Well it’s about time. I always liked Will but Jada has always seemed so sanctimonious & above everyone else. I hope she goes away & takes those 2 smug little brats with her.

  13. Nev says:

    they were the couple who spearheaded “divorce is not an option”…seemed so devoted…if this is true…really sad.

  14. Criss says:

    “She hasn’t done anything”? really, having kids and raising a family is considered nothing?

  15. HadleyB says:

    Ruin whose career? She is awful. Over acting everything and even then..pretty bad. So no Jada, hate to break it to you, divorce will not hurt your never had one. You just walked the red carpet because of Will.

    As for splitting everything because you are married and have kids — just because you are married and have kids doesn’t mean you should get everything .. like Linda Hogan. I hardly think any of their kids will be living in a shack. It’s a shame when some women make the rest look bad by taking money or too much money just because they can, or get away with it when other women get nothing when they really do need it and ARE living in shacks.

    she didn’t make the $$ and while I am not saying she should get nothing.. I hate when I hear the woman getting 80% of everything just because she popped out a kid. Please.

  16. Shoes says:

    She’s had cheek implants, right ?

  17. Jayna says:

    I have been so sick of her ad nauseum remarks about their sex life. The last time was Oprah a year ago or so. He seemed to have toned it down realizing people were over it. Not her. When people bring up their sex life all the time it’s a red flag.

  18. Cathy says:

    If she pulled her hair any tighter into that bun her head might pop like a giant zit.

  19. diane says:

    Jayna (#17) … you are SO RIGHT!

  20. AlaskaJoey says:

    I wonder if they have a pre-nup or not? If not, I guess that’s what the battle would be. If so, she probably would still fight to break it.

  21. Turtle Dove says:

    Still like them together. It’ll be too bad if they do split.

  22. Debbie says:

    Will is a class act. Jada is a creepy critter and their kids are repulsive. I hoope he gets out soon.

  23. j says:

    Can not stand both of them and their kids bug also… she especialy is so tiresome with all her bs.. also if you ever see pic of them seated she sits just like a guy with her legs apart and he sits just like a girl.. she is always so flippin militant when someone afrian american wins some award with her stupid fist pumping and stuff ugh!!

    • Kellie says:

      lol Agree, the entire family is FUG

    • Imo says:

      Goodness gracious, hide all your silverware a militant black woman seems to get people all bothered lol. I don’t know what her cheering for anyone African American has to do with this post but whatever. I luv them as a family and I hope their marriage works out.

  24. Lisa says:

    I remember this really gross interview with them a few years ago where she was calling herself the Queen of the house and he was her “King” ……. yuck.

  25. skimama says:

    Talk about ego-maniacs–naming their kids after themselves! They are phony people living a lie and it’s a wonder they lasted this long.

    • kay says:

      that’s ridiculous. what does ego have to do with it?
      we named both my children after their father. has nothing to do with ego.

  26. e.non says:

    and the best part …. those freakin obnoxious kids of theirs will hopefully be forced to lay low.

  27. Mingy says:

    will was in port of spain..awesome
    i wonder if he goes to trinidad often..

  28. nemera says:

    Wow I thought only certain celebrity couples get this kind of negative.

    lesson learned.

    *** They shouldn’t make statements or even sue. Will and Jada have not gotten near the press some couples get ever week. Yet they don’t sue or release statements. If you life if fine live it and let the outside world talk all it wants. The truth always wins out.

  29. kristenier says:

    I KNEW they were headed for divorce when they started pimping out their kids as celebrities.

    I knew the kids money would be Jada’s because she’d get primary custody of them. That way, in a divorce she wouldn’t take half to all of Will’s money. With Willow and Jaden making millions her lawyers might say okay she’ll take 1/4 o9f Will’s money and get custody of the kids and have control of their money without Will touching it since he makes 10x the money the kids make.

    Something just didn’t feel right about them not letting these KIDS be KIDS.

  30. G says:

    Hurt their careers? Not in the least.

  31. lisa g says:

    she has been a c44t since her performing art school days.

  32. Dana says:

    I would not at all be surprised if Will tried to screw Jada out her fair share. I remember he was openly contemptuous of the amount that the judge awarded his first wife in their divorce.

  33. nemera says:

    The bangs look bad because that is not her hair but a bang piece.. I know it has a correct name but I don’t know what it is called.


  34. kimberly says:

    About time!

    Just when they have their 2 average kids in their 15min.

    Hate to say it, they’re kids are just as fake as their parents when you watch them.

    FameWhores breeding

  35. judyjudy says:


  36. I RUN NEW YORK says:

    They are really good at faking it. They look super in love.

  37. LeeLoo says:

    I hope they’re not divorcing. I’ve always thought they were a decent couple. I do disagree with the fact that they have put their kids out there. I think if the kids really wanted a Hollywood lifestyle they should have waited until they were 18.

  38. lisa good says:

    They are fake and annoying..they need to come out of the closet and lock xenu in said closet.

  39. dean travers says:

    Jada Pinkett looks as though she was carved from a slab of bitch. Will Smith is perhaps the most asexual seeming man I have ever seen that actually has a female fan base. Odd.

  40. dean travers says:

    Oh and their kids are beyond annoying!

  41. Doris says:

    Before u guys crucify them, these are just rumours of magazines tryna sell. Why are some peeps hating on the kids, Dakota n Elle Fanning, Lindsay Lohan n a host of many big kids started out small. I would be a proud mama if i know dat my kids can carve a niche for themselves. U myt hate their kids buh ur kids will sure dance to Willow and everykid wanted to see Karate kid by Jayden. I hate when pple sit n write to discredit celebs especially when they are making mega money. Get a life

  42. mccoy says:

    Jada has been in numerous movies that made money. Matrix 2 & 3 and Collateral which Jamie Foxx got a Oscar nomination in. She messed up when you put her eggs in those kids basket. Who said that they needed careers? They were what 5 & 7. BTW I couldn’t stand Jaden in Happiness or Earth Stood Still. Karate Kid should have never been remade.

    • Iggles says:

      I thought he was pretty good in Happiness. The role was rather one note, and he was acting with his real father.

      He was TERRIBLE in The Day The Earth Stood Still and I refuse to watch the Karate Kid remake!

      I don’t think Will and Jada should have pushed their kids on the public. They aren’t talented and have huge egos. Should have just let them be kids. His eldest son by his first wife seems much more grounded.

  43. Shalom says:

    Although they are absolutely nerve wracking I feel truly sorry for the kids. I’m sure they realized all this fake marriage drama for a long time and now have to deal with the reporting on it. Furthermore they have been sold long time ago, the boy into the movie industry, the girl to Jay-Z. Showbiz will be their new family…

  44. Doris says:

    @Iggles,do u expect me to reply that
    question or u like to insult

  45. Thea says:

    I think they have been “done” a while with their “relationship”. Time to shave and get a new beard. She is scary as hell.

  46. Ouch!
    They were just in Miami, too!
