Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith have been married for 17 years now. The star couple took to the front pages of tabloids when the news of their divorce broke out.
Sources from inside Hollywood almost confirmed the news with statements like "For Will and Jada, holding it together these past few years has been tough because their marriage has been on life support for a long time". This further increased the chances of believing the story.
But, as it turns out, rumours were all they were!
Will Smith took to Facebook to rubbish these rumours and addressed Jada Pinkett Smith as his “queen.”
The post Will Smith shared read, “Under normal circumstances, I don't usually respond to foolishness. (Because it's contagious) But, so many people have extended me their "deepest condolences" that I figured - "What the hell... I can be foolish, too!"
So, in the interest of redundant, repetitious, over & over-again-ness... Jada and I are...
NOT GETTING A DIVORCE!!!!!!!!!!!!! : -)
I promise you all - if I ever decide to divorce my Queen - I SWEAR I'll tell you myself!
#Dumb People Should Have to Wear Scarlet D's.”
After The Pursuit Of Happiness star posted this, his wife tweeted saying, “My king has spoken.”
The divorce got so much hype in the media also because it was anticipated that the couple has worked out a confidential settlement to protect their $240 million fortune.
But we are happy that it was all a rumour and the couple who have two kids, Willow and Jaden, will see more happy years in the future
