Fans of Will and Jada’s marriage can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that the heartbreaking split rumors arose sometime last week. The two have finally made a public announcement stating that the rumors were absolutely false:
‘Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false. We are still together, and our marriage is intact.’
Will’s son from a prior marriage also spoke up by tweeting: ‘Did #WillandJada split? No they did NOT split! False information … it’s not true RETWEET!!!’
It’s definitely good news for everyone who’s been following and rooting for their marriage since they wedded in 1997. The two symbolize the African American marriage and give hope to many couples who are surrounded by high black female single rates and black children being raised without a father. Other couples that blacks have had high hopes with include Barack and Michelle Obama (though not mainstream enough) and Russell Simmons and his ex-wife Kimora. Of course there are others, but none pair up to the status of Will and Jada (i.e. T.I. and Tiny).
They have been doing a great job of staying together and staying out of the negative limelight, so not sure how this one even surfaced. Their parenting skills have also been under the limelight, given that their daughter Willow and son Jaden have been taking Hollywood by storm with films and music. Some feel that they may be too young for these industries and others feel that they are managing them quite well. Some think that Willow is too sassy, but everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Let’s just rejoice in the fact that they are all still a happy family and hopefully it stays that way ‘til death do them part.
Anyone who looks at Jada Pinkett Smith can’t help but to see a very successful black woman. She’s starred in countless Big Office movies, including The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolution. She’s a business woman, doing all types of projects such as co-producing a broadway show called “Fela”. You can also find her starring in the TNT series, Hawthorne, where she plays a Doctor.
Jada was recently on Shade 45′s “Great American Morning Show”, where she was interviewed by DJ Wonder about her success in Hollywood, projects she’s working on with rap mogul Jay-Z,and managing her family life.
“I’m always clear on what my priorities are. So when ever obstacles or confusion come in to play, I’m always very clear and I always know where I’m stepping, because I understand what comes first in my life. And that makes it very easy,” Jada said.
When asked about working with Jay-Z as a partner, she said, “He’s very professional, he’s a good partner, and we are about to do a movie with him, the ‘Annie’ joint with Willow [Smith], so he’s a good partner.”
“You know, we just have great teams and we have great partnership. It’s all about partnering. And that’s the thing that I’ve learned about being in this business. You can’t expect to do great things by yourself that you have to be able to partner up with people,” Jada shared. “I think, especially for African Americans to understand that particular component, because we’re always thinking ‘I want to do it myself.” I’ve learned that in this business and in life, it’s about choosing really fantastic strong partners that can come into the game with you and make things happen with you.”
