Report: Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Separate
UPDATE:

The couple's rep just released this statement: "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."

Will's son Trey is also speaking out. "Did #WillandJada split? No they did NOT split! False information ... its not true RETWEET!!!" Trey posted to Twitter Tuesday. "Everyone can think what they want ... even if its not true."

And apparently there were rumors that Jada was hooking up with her 'HawthoRNe' co-star Marc Anthony. I never heard those rumors, but their reps are denying that one. "All the rumors regarding Marc Anthony and Jada are false. Completely untrue. As for [the reports of a split between] Will and Jada, I'm not commenting on their personal life," Jada's rep, Karynne Tencer told ET.

Adds Anthony's rep: "We unequivocally deny this. Enough is enough. There are families involved, children involved, friendships involved. This is NOT true."

ORIGINAL STORY:

There are a lot of awful things going on in the world right now. Wars, a failing economy, Darfur. But if Will Smith and Jada Pinkett separate, that just might push us over the edge.

Reports surfaced this morning that the hot Hollywood couple has split after thirteen years of marriage. And they had an open relationship, too--so what could've possibly happened? Smith said of their marriage fidelity:

“Our perspective is you don't avoid what's natural. You're going to be attracted to people. In our marriage vows, we didn't say 'forsaking all others'. "If it came down to it, then one 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'."

I mean, if Jada is the type of woman who is laid-back enough to let her husband have sex with other women, I don’t know what could’ve happened that these two couldn’t work out.

Hollyscoop contacted Will’s publicist but we haven’t heard anything as of yet. Jada’s rep reportedly told TMZ: “What? ‘In Touch’ said that? I know nothing about this ... Lord. I'm going back to bed.”

I agree. If this is true, I want to just lie in bed for a week, eat ice cream and look at old pictures of Will and Jada. If they can’t make it, no one can.

In the past, the couple has vowed to never, ever let divorce be an option:

“Divorce can’t be an option,” Smith told MTV in 2006. See? I wasn’t making that up.

“With Jada, I stood up in front of God and said, 'Til death do us part.' So there are two possible outcomes. One, we are going to be together till death, or two, I am dead."

And Jada felt the same: “When Will asked me to get married, I said, 'Understand this, there will be no divorce," she said. "So, you might be in one bedroom and I might be in another, but we're gonna be under the same roof and we're gonna be married.'"

And speaking of roofs, the couple was just recently featured in Digest Architectural. The have a massive, 25,000 square foot adobe home in Malibu that was photographed for the mag.

So he lives in a giant house, is free to have sex with other women, and still gets to come home to a loving wife and kids. What more could a man want?

Let’s just hope there’s been some misunderstanding, because I can’t take this news on a Tuesday morning. Say it ain’t so, guys.
