Jada Pinkett Smith Denies Ongoing Rumors of Marital Strife

By Nottage and Ward on April 20, 2012

Rumors that Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith were calling it quits have been circulating since the beginning of 2012. Celebrity couples often find themselves the subjects of constant media attention, but that doesn’t mean that the media always sees what is actually going on. In January, TMZ had reported that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith were separated and living apart due to marital troubles spurred on by differing opinions on how to manage their kids’ careers. According to a recent People magazine article, however, this does not seem to have ever been the case.

In the article, Jada Pinkett Smith spoke out against the rumors of marital discord and impending divorce, claiming them to be “ridiculous.” She has no idea why the rumors started or why they won’t go away. At least one celebrity couple is placed under the marital microscope every year, and this year it seems to be the Smiths. Jada Pinkett Smith says the rumors are completely untrue. She and her husband travel a lot for work and so, naturally, end up spending quite a bit of time apart, but their commitment to each other has not changed and they have always lived together. The rumor that they were now living apart was just that, a rumor. The Smiths are fine and working on new projects with their kids.

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.

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.
