You’ve gotta hand it to WILL SMITH and JADA PINKETT-SMITH, they boomeranged reports of their separation with an announcement that their marriage remains intact. Whew! For a moment there, we thought the power couple was a goner.
A few hours after Hollywood celebrity websites reported their “announced separation“, Will and Jada immediately set the record straight – they’re still together, and they’re going strong.
“Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false. We are still together, and our marriage is intact,”
the couple said in a statement.
The two met in 1990 when Jada auditioned for the role of Will‘s girlfriend in hi show “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”. The producers nixed her in favor of actress Nia Long, saying she was too short. Not too short for Will, apparently. They began dating soon after and were married in 1997.
“I will throw my career away before I let it break up our marriage. I made it clear to Will. I’d throw it away completely.”
Jada has been quoted as saying in the early years.
We guess she’s made good on that, both of them. And we’re all heaving a sigh of relief and rooting for their happy-ever-after.
