Will Smith, whose first solo rap album, 'Big Willie Style,' spawned singles like 'Just the Two of Us,' wed Jada on Dec. 31, 1997. They held a secret New Year's Eve wedding in Baltimore at the Cloisters Mansion. After 13 years of marriage, they are reportedly calling it quits.
However, TMZ placed a call to Jada's rep, Karynne Tencer, to confirm the news and her response was not in union with what the tabloid magazine conveyed. "What? In Touch said that? I know nothing about this ... Lord. I'm going back to bed," Tencer stated.
The couple have two children together: Jaden, an actor who starred in films like 2010's 'The Karate Kid,' and Willow, whose widely recognized for her work as a singer with 'Whip My Hair.' Will has a son, Trey, from a previous marriage.
On the music front, news circulated last week that Will Smith may be returning to the hip-hop world. Producer La Mar "Mars" Edwards revealed that he was working with the rapper-turned-actor on his lyrical comeback.
*UPDATE: Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are quelling the rumors of their split. The couple, married for more than 13 years, released a statement denying the separation reports.
"Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false," the couple said in a joint statement. "We are still together, and our marriage is intact."
Will's first son Trey, from a previous marriage, posted to his Twitter account, addressing the talk that his father and stepmother were no longer an item. "Did #WillandJada split? No they did NOT split! False information ... its not true RETWEET!!!" he wrote. "Everyone can think what they want ... even if its not true."
