Undisputed Hollywood power broker Will Smith and his wife of 13 years Jada Pinkest Smith have reportedly announced they are separating.
They key word to focus on is “reportedly” as it sees there is little official word from the power couple.
The couple has two adorable, and famous, children Jaden Smith and Willow Smith.
Jaden is pals with Justin Bieber and appeared last year in the movie Karate Kid and in Bieber’s “Never Say Never” music video.
His sister, Willow, also appeared at several Bieber concerts promoting her hit single “Whip Your Hair Back and Forth.”

This could just be the next internet rumor or Hollywood hoax machine at work – so take it in with a grain of salt.
Will, a powerhouse actor and deal maker, got his start on the TV series “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” before appearing in some of the biggest movie block buster’s known to man.
A few of his biggies include Independence Day, Men in Black, Wild Wild West, The Legend of Bagger Vance, Ali, Bad Boys II, I, Robot, Hitch, The Pursuit of Happyness, I am Legend, Hancock, and Seven Pounds.
Smith is currently filming “Men in Black III” due in theaters in May of 2012 and starring Will, Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin.
Jada Pinkett Smith got her start as Lena James in the TV series “A Different World” then went on to star on the big screen in hits like The Nutty Professor , Scream 2, The Matrix Reloaded , Madagascar, and Reign Over Me.
She is currently working on “Madagascar II” lending her voice to the character of Gloria, and is appearing as Christina Hawthorne on the hit television series “Hawthorne”.
It was reported earlier this month that Will and Jada just purchased a new 25,000 square foot mansion in Calabasas California and was quoted by Architectural Digest as saying,
“We wanted the house to have no dead ends…to create an infinite cycle that represented what Jada and I hoped for our love. For us this home was always a spiritual endeavor…we’re very earthy, organic people. We wanted to create a family retreat, something made by hand and as natural as possible, and something that ties back to the land."
These words seem genuine and don’t sound like the words of a couple getting ready to divorce.
We suspect this whole separation and divorce news is just another grand hoax and rumor mongering.
If we’re wrong – we’ll eat crow.
But for now we’re calling foul and saying it just isn’t true.
** UPDATE **
Will's son from a previous marriage, Trey, has taken to his twitter page saying his dad is not getting a divorce saying,
"Will and Jada getting a DIVORCE ..NOT TRUE AT ALL !! RETWEET."
** UPDATE #2 **
Will and Jada have just released a statement saying,
"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."
We didn't think it was true, and it is looking more like a hoax by the hour.
