'Our marriage is intact,' the power couple said in a statement, just hours after rumours surfaced
Hollywood power couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith have slammed reports that they are to separate after thirteen years of marriage, confirming in a statement: ‘our marriage is intact.’
Their statement came just hours after US magazine In Touch claimed they had called time on their relationship – even alleging the separation was down to an affair between Jada and her Hawthorne co-star Marc Anthony.
And in a rare move, the usually private couple issued a statement denying the reports.
‘Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumours circulating about our relationship are completely false,’ it read.
‘We are still together, and our marriage is intact.’
Later, both Jada and Marc Anthony’s spokesmen also issued denials, branding the rumours ‘completely untrue’.
‘All the rumours regarding Marc Anthony and Jada are false. Completely untrue,’ Jada’s rep, Karynne Tencer, said. ‘As for [the reports of a split between] Will and Jada, I’m not commenting on their personal life.’
Marc’s publicist added: ‘We unequivocally deny this. Enough is enough. There are families involved, children involved, friendships involved. This is NOT true.’
Will and Jada have two children, Jaden, 13, and Willow, ten. Smith also has an 18-year-old son, Trey, by his first wife Sheree Zampino, who he was married to for three years until 1995.
One of Hollywood’s longest running couples, they married in 1997, after first meeting when she auditioned to play his girlfriend on hit TV show, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, back in 1990.
