The rumor mill has been buzzing for quite some time that Will and wife Jada Pinkett-Smith were involved in an unhappy marriage. There were early 2011 rumors that the couple was on the verge of divorce, but after the couple denied those rumors and were spotted out holding hands, the rumors dissipated. Now, however, Radar Online is reporting that Will Smith and wife Jada undergone a separation and are leading separate lives.
The celebrity gossip magazine is reporting that Will Smith is in New Orleans filming a movie and has been there ever since September. His ex Sheree Fletcher is also in town, although no one is speculating that the two are together.
Jada flew to Paris with her mother and daughter, Willow, but now that she is back in L.A., she is reportedly living with her brother, Caleeb Pinkett.
At the Associated Black Charities of Baltimore Girls’ Night Out Event on October 23 last week, Pinkett reportedly opened up about her troubled marriage.
“When you are going through a storm with your spouse … stop thinking about what you ‘believe’ a husband or wife should be,” she said.
She added: “I thought success would make me happy … It does NOT.”
When asked about the state of the couple’s marriage, Will’s mother, Carolyn Smith, replied “Isn’t that personal? … Thank you for your concern.”
Even though Jada is reportedly living with her brother now, it was initially reported that she moved out of the home she shared with husband Will Smith early last year.
