Jaden & Willow Smith Might Blame Themselves If Will & Jada Split, Experts Say!

Tue, August 23, 2011 3:50pm EDT by 10 Comments

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith’s seemingly wonderful and strong marriage is reportedly on the rocks, but experts say they won’t be the ones who will suffer the heartache — their kids will.

The news broke today (August 23) that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are possibly calling it quits after 13 years of marriage, and we’re shocked! But we’re sure no one else is more surprised than their kids, Jaden, 13, and Willow, 10, who have worked hard to create a strong family foundation that has now fallen out from under them.

“If Will and Jada separate, it will be especially hard on their children because – just like the rest of us – they never saw it coming,” Dr. Carole Lieberman, celebrity psychiatrist and best-selling author, tells HollyBaby.com.

“Sure, there must have been hints,” she adds, “but the kids wanted to believe all their parents’ assurances that they would never get divorced.”

And Dr. Jenn Berman, psychologist and author of The A to Z Guide To Raising Happy Confident Kids, tells HollyBaby.com, “Willow and Jaden are in very formative years and divorce is always traumatic. Their family foundation is falling apart — it’s like having a rug pulled out from under you.”

But what both experts are concerned about is what caused this sudden split. Was it the balance of fame between Will and Jada and their instantly successful kids that might have stirred up some controversy within their seemingly perfect marriage?

“I wouldn’t point the finger at the kids’ careers,” Dr. Berman adds. “But it’s tough for any family to juggle the needs of each individual and it’s definitely tougher when everyone has a Hollywood career. Not to mention the media spotlight is constantly on them,” she adds.

Dr. Lieberman, on the other hand, thinks Jaden and Willow’s careers might have played a role in their parents’ alleged separation.

“Though we don’t yet know the details as to what may have caused the split, one possibility is that Jada finally realized that life was passing her by as she sacrificed her music and acting career for that of her kids,” Dr. Lieberman explains. “And Will may be having a mid-life crisis, as well.”

No matter what the outcome of their marriage, Will and Jada will have a lot to talk about with their children, who include Will’s son from a previous relationship, Trey, 18.

“All children of divorce blame themselves to some extent,” Dr. Lieberman adds, “and if they feel that their fame has become ill-gotten gains at the expense of their parents’ marriage, they’ll be even more distraught.”

What do you think of Will and Jada’s rumored split, HollyMoms? Did the family’s fame contribute to their destruction? Share your thoughts!

It would be tragic if they blamed themselves. I know how I feel with my parents not being together and it doesn’t feel right it feels kinda overwelming and sad because I don’t see one of them very often.

Eva, you’re sick. Both your comments are insensitive and ungodly. I hope that you don’t have any children to speak such hatred to. Thats whats wrong with the world today. I hope that Jaden and Willow’s eyes never have the opportunity to view such negative comments. No matter what race we are, we all want the same things in life. One is to be respected. Didn’t your parents teach you if you don’t have anything positive to say, don’t say nothing at all? Well, I AM.

I think it’s ridiculous that they are parading Willow all over the place – she has absolutely no talent and her hair looks like a freak. Let KIDS be KIDS!!! They will one day regret that they made their kids get into show biz and don’t tell me they didn’t do it. Kids don’t just decide they want to sing a son on tv, etc. Let them be.
