Two rumors were created and squashed all before lunchtime. Where else can you create a rumor that Jada Pinkett Smith is cheating on Will Smith with Marc Anthony and because of it the Pinkett-Smiths are separating? Hollywood, where else?! Hollywood: Where dreams are born and then go to die.
This morning the rumor circulated that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith were separating. We know this is false because Jada's son Trey Smith told us so via twitter. "Did WillandJada split? No They did NOT split!" he tweeted. In the short time it took that rumor to circulate and then die, the tabloid gods also announced that the reason Jada and Will were splitting was because Jada was having an affair with Marc Anthony. GASP!
Wow double infidelity. Two marriages crumble. The headlines were barely forming as soon as Jada's rep released the statement, "Everything about Jada and Marc Anthony is false. In regard to Jada and Will, I will not comment on their personal lives."
Apparently Jada supposedly cheated on Will with Marc because they both appear on the TNT show, "Hawthorne." This affair was supposedly what caused the ruin of Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez's marriage too.
However, if you truly know your celeb gossip you will know that Jada and Will have an "open relationship," which is what adults call "f-ck buddies" to make it sound fancier. Hey man, call it what it is.
Moral of the story: how can Jada have an affair with Marc Anthony if she and Will have an open relationship? If you both agree that each of you can sleep with other people than how do you know if it's an affair? And don't call it an "emotional affair" because I don't know what that is.
Will Smith talked about their open marriage in 2005, "If it came down to it, then one spouse can say to the other, 'Look, I need to have sex with somebody. I'm not going to if you don't approve of it - but please approve of it."
And Jada has said, "We always have people that we're attracted to that we talk about. That don't stop just because you're married...is there somebody right for a nice night? Maybe."
I don't really know what she's saying in this statement, but it sounds pretty shady.
Regardless, the Will and Jada aren't cheating. They aren't splitting up. Everyone can go back to work and stop burning your DVD copy of "Men in Black" because you thought it would symbolize solidarity with Will Smith.
