There has been much speculation across the web that Hollywood power couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith have separated after 13-years of marriage, sparked by a report by In Touch Weekly.
One rumor claimed that Pinkett was having an affair with J.Lo’s ex-husband Marc Anthony.
In response to the rumor, Pinkett released a statement through her publicist denying rumors that she was having an affair with Anthony, who acts as her love interest in television series ‘Hawthorne.’
“All the rumors regarding Marc Anthony and Jada are false. Completely untrue,” Pinkett’s spokesperson Karynne Tencer said today. However, in what could be a telling move, the statement did not address rumors of the split between Will and Jada.
The couple, who first met during Pinkett’s audition for ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air,’ married on December 31, 1997. They have two children together; actor Jaden, 13, and pop-star Willow, 10.
When the rumors first surfaced, Will’s eldest son from a previous marriage, Trey, 18, took to twitter exclaiming: “Did #WillandJada split? No they did NOT split! False information!”
Will Smith is expected to make a statement addressing the split later this evening.
