Will Smith and Wife Jada Pinkett Smith Calling it Quits?

By Nottage and Ward on January 18, 2012

Celebrity marriages have to overcome many obstacles to succeed, the most obvious of which is the constant gauntlet of media attention and rumors. For many couples, the stress of it all takes its toll on the marriage. When celebrity marriages add celebrity children to the mix, it can create even more stress, as has reportedly occurred in Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s relationship, according to an article in TMZ.

Separation rumors began circling around the celebrity couple in the summer of 2011 due to tension in the marriage. This tension was allegedly the result of conflicting opinions about how to handle their children’s careers/fame. Their two children, Jaden and Willow Smith, are already household names as the result of successful acting and music careers. Reportedly, Will Smith was all for pushing their kids into all-out stardom while his wife wanted things to move more gradually. The couple, who denied separation/divorce rumors supposedly moved past this rough patch and was back to normal by the end of 2011.

This no longer seems to be the case, however, if it ever was. According to The Huffington Post, Jada Pinkett Smith has allegedly retained celebrity divorce lawyer, Laura Wasser, which makes it appear as though she is taking the first steps to dissolving her 13-year marriage with Will Smith, despite the couple’s previous statement that they are still together.

Keeping private relationship issues actually private is very difficult for a high-profile couple. Even if there are problems in the marriage and the Smiths are heading toward divorce, who can blame them for trying to keep the press and the public out of it?

Five Stars5 Leslie has been the strongest representation I could ask for

Leslie has been the strongest representation I could ask for in a very complicated, emotional matter. She has continuously looked out for my best interest and the best interest of my son. She is always prompt in getting back to me and in keeping me well informed about my case.
