Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith did not “secretly split,” despite a false tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk the breakup rumors. We’re told they’re completely untrue.

According to the Australian outlet NW, the famous couple’s marriage is on its last legs. A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “The word is that they are spending a lot of time apart. It’s supposedly a trial separation. Only time will tell if it’s temporary or if it’s well and truly over and they decide to divorce.”

The outlet’s questionable insider adds, “There’s no doubt that Will and Jada still love each other, but it seems like they’re just not in love any more. They’re very different people now than they were when they got married. Twenty years is a long time to be together after all, especially by Hollywood standards.” The tabloid’s seemingly phony source further contends that both are now open to “the idea of exploring other romantic possibilities.”

However, Smith’s Instagram page tells a very different story. The movie star wrote a lengthy tribute to his wife on their 20th wedding anniversary last month, noting how their relationship has blossomed and strengthened over the years. He ended his post by saying, “Happy Anniversary, My Queen! I am forever Devoted to Nurturing your Deepest Truth.”

Regardless of the evidence disproving the outlet’s story, Gossip Cop still checked in with a source close to Smith, who confirmed there’s no truth to the allegations of marital drama. A rep for Jada similarly assured us on the record that the tabloid’s account of their relationship is entirely “false.” This is simply a non-story.

Unfortunately, Gossip Cop has had to debunk many bogus reports about the couple divorcing over the years, so we’re not surprised by this latest phony article. Smith was wrongly linked to Suicide Squad co-star Margot Robbie by various outlets in the past, while one website recently claimed Jada was leaving her husband for R&B singer August Alsina. Despite all of these ridiculous claims, the happy couple’s marriage is going strong.
