Another year, another rumor that Will and Jada are divorcing.
Allegedly, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are planning to quietly file for divorce after 17 years of marriage, a source tells RadarOnline.com.
“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,” the insider says. “They’re exhausted from trying to maintain the façade of a happy union.”
Indeed, the Smiths’ marriage has been under scrutiny for sometime, with rumors of infidelity circling both of the A-list actors. In 2011, various “sources” reported that Jada was having an affair with Jennifer Lopez‘s then-husband Marc Anthony, while years later, in 2014, Will was said to be cheating on his wife with his Focus co-star Margot Robbie. Both the Smiths vehemently denied the rumors.
Recently, Jada told Howard Stern that she refuses to let the rumors get to her. “You’ve got to trust who you’re with,” she told Stern. “And at the end of the day, I’m not here to be anybody’s watcher. I’m not his watcher. He’s a grown man.”
According to Radar, the Smiths are trying to reach a settlement on their $240 million fortune and prepare their children, Jaden Smith and Willow Smith, for the news. The source says the hope to separate quietly and amicably.
