Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Headed For “Separation”?

Truth rating: 0

“We’re not exactly sure WHAT is going on… but Jada and Will may [have] SPLIT!!” begins a piece from MediaTakeOut about Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith. Take a moment to read through that sentence again: The blog admits it doesn’t know what is going on with the couple, and in the same sentence alleges that they’ve split. Huh.

Anyway, MTO speculates the couple could be headed for a “separation” because Pinkett wrote on Facebook that “she’s going through a change in her life!!” The site reports that the actress “posted about how she’s on a ‘new journey,'” adding, “She went on to talk about how Will and her will continue to parent their children the way they have in the past.”

MediaTakeOut then quotes Pinkett’s Facebook status, which partially reads, “I am on a tremendous journey of great change in every area of my life and I see how change can be scary. For instance, how Will and I raise our family is a tremendous change from the norm.” OK…

Her post goes on to say, “The freedom of choice is the crux of happiness. We are not here to live up to another’s approval. Take responsibility for YOUR life, YOUR values, YOUR beliefs and expect NO ONE to hold that banner for you or to prove it RIGHT.” Um…

We don’t see anything in there alluding to a breakup or any other trouble with Smith. In fact, she speaks of herself and Smith as a unit, when she writes, for example, “How Will and I raise our family.” Perhaps one of the writers over at MTO forgot their glasses today? In any case, Gossip Cop reached out to a source close to Pinkett, who tells us, “She always writes on Facebook,” adding that the site was simply reading way “too far into it” in an apparent attempt to manufacture drama with the couple. That’s all, folks.
