Here we go again. Welcome to Round 2 of the Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith divorce rumors, folks. And I really hope they’re just rumors, because I don’t think I can handle another split. I barely got out of bed for Katy and Russell.
Jada Pinkett has reportedly met with high-profile divorce attorney Laura Wasser. Wasser is a powerhouse lawyer who has repped stars like Britney Spears and Kim Kardashian. So it looks like her specialty is world’s shortest marriages.
According to In Touch Weekly, a source says the couple has "finally begun to take steps to dissolve their marriage," and Jada even passed on a movie role to spend more time with her kids during this "difficult time."
Round One of the rumors started back in August, with reports that Jada and Will had separated. But they shot down the reports, saying, "Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false.” They added, “We are still together and our marriage is intact.”
A rumor I’m a little more interested in getting to the bottom of—okay, I’ve been dying to find out whether it’s true or not—is a ‘Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ reunion. After Will Smith posed for a photo with his old costars Tatyana Ali, Alfonso Ribeiro, James Avery and Karyn Parsons, rumors started swirling that a reunion was in the works. Just don’t take it so seriously.
But what about Aunt Viv?!
Well, Janet Hubert, who played the original Aunt Viv in the show, has pretty much squashed any hope of a full cast reunion.
“There will never be a reunion as I will never do anything with an as-hole like Will Smith,” Hubert said. If you read between the lines, I think she’s trying to say she doesn’t get along with Will Smith. “He is still an egomaniac and has not grown up... This constant reunion will never ever happen in my lifetime unless there is an apology. He doesn't know the word."
Great, now I can never watch those reruns the same.
So what was the deal with the partial cast reunion photo? Turns out the ex-costars were attending the same charity luncheon.
