Will and Jada Smith Set to Divorce, or Not?

The rumor circulating amongst the tabloids a week ago was that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith were planning on divorcing. It took a lot of people by surprise given that Will and Jada seemed to be one of the rare celebrity couples who remained committed to each other. The couple wed back in 1997 and have two children – 13-year-old Jaden and 11-year-old Willow.

An In Touch magazine report started the rumor when it reported that Will and Jada’s relationship was in trouble and that they were going to divorce. The reaction was immediate and strong. The couple released a statement the day afterwards saying that their marriage is intact. Their children posted to Twitter that the rumors were false. Other celebrities like fashion entrepreneur Russell Simmons and Justin Bieber also came to the couple’s defense and played down the allegations.

Fans of Will and Jada may not be entirely off to suspect something, though. Divorce rumors followed by denials followed by actual divorce is certainly not an unknown timeline amongst celebrity couples. A few of the celebrity couples who pulled this stunt include: Madonna and Guy Ritchie, Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson and, most recently, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. Perhaps this is another case of where there is smoke, there is fire.
