Will and Jada: Love on the Rocks?
Rumors of a troubled marriage continue to swirl around high-profile couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith -- who reportedly threatened In Touch with a legal war after the pair released a statement denying the tabloid's claim that they're separating. In Touch first reported the story Tuesday morning, saying the two were parting after 14 years together.
In Touch also claimed Jada had a fling with newly separated "HawthoRNe" co-star Marc Anthony, who broke up with J.Lo this summer. The Smiths also addressed the affair in a statement released late Tuesday by Jada's rep: "All the rumors regarding Marc Anthony and Jada are false. Completely untrue."
Despite the threat of a lawsuit, In Touch stands by their story, insisting it's true. Their newest report says Will and Jada are secretly living apart.
According to TMZ, a source close to the pair believes a separation as "definitely a possibility," but it hasn't happened yet. The Smith family is planning a getaway soon, but it's unclear whether they are avoiding the media frenzy, or if the trip is a last-ditch effort to save their marriage.
Will, who previously opened up to "Extra" about his first marriage that ended in 1995, explained, "When you've been divorced, it's like you failed." Will has an 18-year-old son, Trey, from that marriage. The "I Am Legend" star added, "If you've been married and divorced and have a child, that's the rest of your life that you have to deal with that."
