We heard rumors for months last year that Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith were on the verge of a split. The split stories started in August, 2011 and then picked up steam toward the end of the year. There were rumors that Jada may have gotten “close” to Marc Anthony on the set of her show HawthoRNe, that Jada and Marc’s “friendship” hastened the end of his marriage with J.Lo and that Jada and Will were living in separate homes. In December, Will was seen out partying with other women. By January, Jada was said to have visited celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser. So there wasn’t just one story that these two were having problems, there were a series of stories in different (mostly tabloid) sources that suggested it was true.
In April, Jada denied that there was any trouble with her marriage, and chalked the rumors up to their busy work schedules. Some subsequent photos with Will gave the impression that they were back together.
Now Jada is repeating that claim in a new interview with Essence (the same one where she said she doesn’t eat for pleasure.) She says she’s not getting a divorce:
“It’s rumored that we’re getting a divorce. But no. We’re not getting a divorce. Where am I going to go? That’s my boo. It’s like he’s another part of me.” [Essence via ETOnline]
Is that nice or is that basically saying that she’s stuck with him and doesn’t know what else to do? “Where am I going to go” sounds like she can’t imagine life without him, but not like it’s a particularly romantic vision. Does that make sense? Whatever happened between them it sounds like they’ve worked it out and are moving forward. I’m rooting for them. Maybe they’ve finally learned to stop talking about their sex life with the press. We saw how that worked out for Heidi Klum and Seal.
Also, I have to say that Jada looks even more alien-like on the cover of Essence, but a lot of that is probably Photoshop.
These are photos of Jada yesterday on her Can-Am Spyder Roadster, a three-wheeled motorcycle basically. These things look cool, but even used ones are predictably expensive. Credit: FameFlynet
