Will Smith, wife Jada Pinkett shutdown divorce rumours

LOS ANGELES: Hollywood couple Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett have denied getting divorced, calling the rumours “foolish”.


There were speculations that the couple, who have two kids together, were heading for a split after almost 20 years of marriage.

Will, 46, posted a denial on Facebook, adressing his wife as “queen.”

He also joked about those, who sent him their condolences after asuming the rumours were true.

“Under normal circumstances, I don’t usually respond to foolishness. (Because it’s contagious) But, so many people have extended me their “deepest condolences” that I figured, “What the hell, I can be foolish, too!”

“So, in the interest of redundant, repetitious, over & over-again-ness, Jada and I are, NOT GETTING A DIVORCE!!!!! I promise you all, if I ever decide to divorce my Queen, I SWEAR I’ll tell you myself! ?#?Dumb? People Should Have to Wear Scarlet D’s,” he wrote.

Jada Pinkett’s tweet followed a few minutes later. “My king has spoken,” she wrote.

The couple married in 1997 and has been plagued by rumors in the past.
