Will is living with Jaden, 13, in Philadelphia, 3,000 miles away from Jada and Willow, 11, who are still in LA.

Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith seem even closer to getting divorce than ever before. They have split up their kids and are living on opposite sides of the country. The kids are devastated, family members and sources reveal to Star magazine.

Will and their son Jaden, 13, are in Philadelphia where they will be filming After Earth — while Jada and Willow, 11, are living in LA before Willow starts touring in May. “The kids are really suffering,” a source says.

“It’s always a shame when divorce splits up families,” Estelle Pinkett, Jada’s great-aunt, agrees.

The family has been torn apart for a while now. “They haven’t spent any time as a whole family in months,” explains the source. “And it’s not going to happen anytime soon — if ever again.”

Willow and Jaden are aware of what’s going on with their parents. “The kids hear everything that Will and Jada say about each other,” an insider shares. “They’ve shed tears over it. It’s a hard time for them.”

“I’m sure [their parents] take it into consideration, the psychological impact on the kids and what they could do to make it minimal,” Jada’s former stepdad Warren Brown tells Star. “[But] it would surprise me if they stayed together.”
