It’s not every day that Will Smith speaks out about rumors, but when it comes to his relationship with Jada Pinkett Smith, the actor is super protective! Amid reports that the couple has secretly worked out a divorce deal, Will took to Facebook to adamantly deny the split.
Will Smith, 46, considers wife Jada Pinkett Smith, 43, his QUEEN — so don’t go believing those rumors that they’re getting divorced! The actor responded to reports that he and his wife are splitting up after 17 years of marriage, and HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVE details on why a break up won’t be happening any time soon.
“Under normal circumstances, I don’t usually respond to foolishness (Because it’s contagious),” he wrote on Facebook. “But, so many people have extended me their ‘deepest condolences’ that I figured – “What the hell… I can be foolish, too!” So in the interest of redundant, repetitious, over &over-again-ness… Jada and I are… NOT GETTING A DIVORCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : -) I promise you all – if I ever decide to divorce by Queen – I SWEAR I’ll tell you myself!” Jada also took to social media to defend her marriage and support her husband simply tweeting, “My king has spoken.” Ok now this couple definitely seems united!
The couple’s response comes after Radar Online reported they had “worked out a confidential settlement to protect their $240 million fortune and prepare their kids for the fallout.” The site claims that the pair are planning to announce the divorce at the end of the summer, but HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that, even though there are problems in the marriage, there won’t be an official split any time in the near future.
“They have tried to make it work, and the reason they stay together is because they feel it would be detrimental for the kids to break up,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY (Will and Jada are parents to son Jaden, 17, and daughter, Willow, 14). “So they never pull the trigger on a divorce, but it’s been thought about for years. A divorce is possible since they’ve talked about it in the past, and there is relationship trouble, but I wouldn’t plan on it happening any time soon.”
Tell us, HollywoodLifers: Do you think Will and Jada will ever end up getting divorced?
