See which couples called it quits this year.
After months of silence, Jada Pinkett Smith has finally addressed the rumors that her long-term marriage to actor Will Smith is headed for divorce.

“These rumors are completely untrue,” Smith told French magazine Gala (via PEOPLE). “I travel a lot because of my work, just like Will does. … But our lifestyle hasn’t changed. Before we had the kids, we were already far away from each other quite often because of separate projects.”

The rumors first started last summer, and went as far as to allege that Jada had hooked up with Jennifer Lopez’s ex-husband, Marc Anthony. A rep for Jada quickly shot down the Marc Anthony connection, though, at the time, was unwilling to address the status of Jada and Will’s marriage.

“Everything about the Marc Anthony story is completely false, but we are not commenting on whether they are separating or not,” the rep said.

A rep for Will also stepped in, telling Entertainment Tonight:

“Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false. We are still together, and our marriage is intact.”

Months after the rumors first broke, Jada expressed confusion to Gala, admitting she had no idea where they came from in the first place. “Every year, one celebrity couple is under the microscope. This year, unluckily, it’s us! I almost want to say that we should have been expecting it,” she said.

“Will and I know the truth. We’re waiting peacefully for the storm to blow over.”

Jada and Will most recently appeared at the Kids’ Choice Awards in March, alongside their two kids, Jaden and Willow.
