WILL & JADA PINKETT SMITH
After reports that Will and Jada Pinkett Smith were separating this week set off a tabloid frenzy, the couple strongly denied any trouble in a joint statement: “The rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false. We are still together, and our marriage is intact.” Reps for Jada, 39, and her HawthoRNe costar Marc Anthony, 42 (whose marriage to Jennifer Lopez, 42, imploded in July), also shot down gossip that the stars had a fling. “We unequivocally deny this,” said Anthony’s rep. Publicly, there have been no signs of trouble for the couple, who’ve been married for 13 years. They show off their home near Calabasas, Calif., in the current issue of Architectural Digest, and Jada recently told Uptown magazine, “We love on each other. We raise our kids [Jaden, 13, and Willow, 10] together. We are building something together.” Still, with two busy careers-earlier this summer, Will, 42, filmed Men in Black 3 in New York City, while Jada shot her series in L.A.-they are often apart. “They haven’t been in the house together in a long, long time,” says a source. But the pair often speak of their strong commitment. Divorce, Will has said, “just can’t be an option.”
