Through his publicist, Will Smith denied reports his marriage to Jada Pinkett Smith is over: “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 comment came several hours after Jada denied having affair with her Hawthorne co-star, Marc Anthony. “All the rumors regarding Marc Anthony and Jada are false. Completely untrue,” Jada's spokesperson, Karynne Tencer, said. “As for [the reports of a split between] Will and Jada, I'm not commenting on their personal life.”
A representative for Marc Anthony also addressed the rumors, saying, “We unequivocally deny this. Enough is enough. There are families involved, children involved, friendships involved. This is NOT true."
Jennifer Lopez's estranged husband joined Jada’s TV show ‘Hawthorne’ as a love interest last year. Anthony was initially introduced as a guest star, but is now a series regular. He also serves as the show's executive music producer. He split from Lopez last month after seven years.
Will's son was the first to defend the Hollywood power couple, who married in 1997. Trey Smith, 18, who is the actor's child from his first marriage, tweeted today: 'Will and Jada getting a DIVORCE .. NOT TRUE AT ALL !!'
He later added: #Did #WillandJada split? No they did NOT split ! False information ..its not true RETWEET!!!'
Will has been divorced before. In 1995, he split from Trey's mother, former fashion design student Sheree Zampino, after three years together.
Will and Jada first met in 1990 when she auditioned for the his girlfriend on his TV show, ‘The Fresh Prince.’ She was rejected for the part because she was considered too short.
