Will Smith & Jada Pinkett are “living and sleeping separately,” tabloids claim

On Wednesday, I covered some early excerpts from Star Magazine’s cover story this week, all about how Will Smith and Jada Pinkett are headed for divorce. The cover story in the print edition doesn’t cover that much more, but Star did compile an extensive timeline to “prove” that Will and Jada have been spending a lot of time apart over the past year, especially in the past few months. I won’t bore you with those details – suffice to say, Star seems to have accurately traced Will and Jada’s movements for months, and it doesn’t seem like they’re the portrait of a healthy marriage – Will is pretty much living alone in their Miami home, and he goes out partying with “the boys” a lot, all while Jada is in NYC and LA with the kids. Here are just some random pieces in the Star report that I found interesting:

Sources tell Star that Will and Jada’s marriage is over and they expect divorce papers to be filed. One source says: “They’ve been faking it for a long time and they don’t want to live a lie anymore. Living and sleeping separately – and now Will finally walking out on Jada – have pushed them to their limit. They’re done.”

An insider says: “Will and Jada are finished after 14 years. 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.”

“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. They put up a good front in public, but behind closed doors they really fight like cats and dogs.”

“Will is 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.”

Jada’s great-aunt, Estelle Pinkett, tells Star: “Jada’s already gone through a lot of tragedy. Both her grandmother and father died not too long ago, and I know it was hard for her. I really hope that she and Will can work it out. They always seemed like a pretty compatible couple. And even if they’re having troubled, I just don’t think, in the end, that they’d be satisfied with anyone else. Marriage is hard work for anyone, so I hope they stick it out.”

In Touch has a similar story, only In Touch’s sources don’t make grand pronouncements claiming that everybody totally knows that IT’S OVER. ITW’s story is basically just restating that Jada and Will have been spending a lot of time apart, and then sources say it’s getting really hard on their kids. Bodyguards are now shuffling the kids around to and from school and various activities and stuff, and Jada and Will used to be very hands-on parents and they aren’t anymore.

    She looks like she would actually be sticky if you touched her. That’s alot of make-up.

    Those are some dead eyes too.

    • Marjalane says:

      I know, right?! That’s all I could think of was, “Man, she looks meaner than hell!” Those are the kind of eyes you see on serial killers.

  2. Dominique says:

    Ugh. That tan.

  3. NM9005 says:

    – Both gay and had this fake marriage for the image: poor children…

    – Their children are gorgeous and this break-up comes in the worst moment. Right when their children are getting pimped, the household isn’t stable anymore!

    – What I really want to know is: How does Marc feel about JLo’s rico suave??!!

  4. Loralei says:

    Weren’t they the ones that said that they “didn’t believe” in divorce? Also, I always thought that they were exploiting their kids.

    • Kara Ann says:

      I believe Will Smith has been quoted as saying that for them “divorce is not an option”. I believe it was a way to acknowledge that they were dedicated to making it work. It’s very sad that they were apparently dedicated to that ideal at one time and, for whatever reason, have been unable to sustain it.

  5. Jessica says:

    oh man, just leave them alone..

    • Tapioca says:

      …they’ve always been so private!

      • LadyAnne says:

        LOL awesome comment!

      • Wildone says:

        Until they started pimping out there kids and Jada talking about their sex, showing photos of inside their house, doing photo op, Jada going from magazine to magazine with nothing to promote talking about there privte life and her and Will’s childhood.

  6. Victoria says:

    They weren’t private about their sex lives. Look I wanted to love Will and Jada from the start, I did because I love seeing positive black Hollywood couples with power, success, and a nice family and seemingly happy life.

    BUT since our urban blogs, gossips, and tabs,have been dropping tapes on this couple from day one, and having grow up in Philly all my life, I never believe it. It’s only new to mainstream media that this marriage is and was a farce from days one. I have a bunch of friends and family in West Philly who spent plenty of days on the Strip hanging out with Will back in the day and even BEFORE he made it famous there was talk of him being sweet. And this was in the eighties right before he blew up.

    Philly is a small community and in the black community it’s even smaller. Everyone native is connected in some kind of way so his business has been put on front street for years. Which is why as Jada’s career started taking off and she was covering up her own lesbian affairs (she’s from Baltimore and that place is like the Philly of the south and WE SHARE INFO LOL) they both latched to each other.

    I think they are exploiting their children but I think it goes so much deeper than that. Not to sound like a conspiracy theorist but I believe there is just a lot of evil that top celebrities who are always making big money are involved with. I really do. And I believe the Smith clan is one of those families.

    Nick and Mariah for example know this which is why Nick DOESN’T want his kids to be an entertainer.

    • Launicaangelina says:

      Wow – I liked all the dirt! I always wondered about the Will Smith gossip. With Jada, there’s a vibe but Will hides it well. At least to me.

    • Happymom says:

      Yep. Do you think their involvement with Scientology is contributing to this? I find it so creepy that they got hooked up with it, and yet try their best to cover this up to. A whole lot of secrets to try and suppress, no?

      • Victoria says:

        Oh I definitely the saving of the face is all about them being involved with Scientology maybe even regrettably so. Why? Because we’ve learning from John Travolta and Tommy scandals that their cult is all about the power of secrets and information. Maybe before Will and Jada were able to do them without it being exposed since Hollywood will take care of it’s own to a certain point. But with Scientology they find out all your secrets and then blackmail you into staying with them if you ever decided to leave. As long as you stay faithful, you can almost do whatever and they have your back. They’ll cover all your dirty deeds.

        Tommy, John, Will, and even Jamie Foxx are all in that How You Doin’ circle. All of them.

    She does look sticky—and mean.

  8. Vanden says:

    God she looks also, and i still can’t get over how much Willow looks like her dad!

  9. Kara Ann says:

    Will has always been my favorite of the two but I really liked them as a couple. The “family love” I felt for them waned after their children jumped into the entertainment field. I felt that reflected poorly on them as parents. Although up til then I thought they spoke with alot of common sense about their family. The vague hints that they are $cientologists also bothered me. I truly hope that they are not. Anyway, I find this incredibly sad.

  10. SistaSoFine says:

    I believe every word!

  11. Sisi says:

    Meh, I think Will and Jada have always lived separate lives.

    I do think it’s suspect that we suddenly hardly see the kids anymore. Last year they were freaking everywhere, and now they are kept relatively under the radar. This is a good thing for the kids, but I think that the Smiths wouldn’t do this without a really important reason. Something changed since last year definitely.

  12. truthful says:

    Will nds to live his life happily, whatever it takes–it shows on his face.

  13. Dani says:

    I won’t believe anything until I see it in People.

  14. NeoCleo says:

    Jada Pinkett has always creeped me out. And these photos just cement that feeling.

  15. rainstarr says:

    She was so pretty before, when they had been together for awhile, and obviously took great care of herself, and then a few years back *BAM* those cheek implants!!! Now any warmth she EVER had towards Will, even the kids, has disappeared and has been replaced by alien-cold-dead and yes, just plain MEAN-ness. Maybe she was body-snatched?!

  16. CeeCee says:

    Marc Anthony & JLo, now these two. Connect the dots everyone! hahahhaa

  17. Gypsy says:

    Now Charlize will soon not have go to her Premieres alone.

  18. Charlotteanbella says:

    What happened to Jada’s face? She used to be so lovely back when she was on ‘A Different World.’
