Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith have kept relatively silent as rumors of their troubled marriage continue to flourish, but Jada has had enough.
“These rumors are completely untrue,” she told the French magazine Gala. “Will and I know the truth.”
It was late last year when the rumors first hit. Reportedly, Jada had indulged in a steamy affair with “HawtoRNe” co-star Marc Anthony. The couple did respond to the gossip then, but that didn’t do much to stop it.
More recently, Star magazine reported that it was Will who had been unfaithful with former “All of Us” colleague, Duane Martin.
Duane’s wife Tisha Campbell-Martin had a few things to say about that.
“Usually I ignore negativity, but I’m tired of the media attacking The Smiths. They’re an amazing couple n I wish ppl wld stop perpetuatin LIES,” she wrote on Twitter.
Jada admitted that she and her superstar hubby have hectic schedules that require they spend time apart, but that’s nothing new for the duo, and the two do still live together.
“I travel a lot because of my work, just like Will does,” she said. “Our lifestyle hasn’t changed. Before we had the kids, we were already far away from each other quite often because of separate projects.”
Jada said she and Will are taking the rumors in stride and consider it all a part of Hollywood life in the spotlight.
“Every year, one celebrity couple is under the microscope. This year, unluckily, it’s us! I almost want to say that we should have been expecting it,” she said.
