It’s been a tough year for some of Hollywood’s favorite couples. First American Horror Story sweethearts Emma Roberts and Evan Peters called off their engagement. And while the pair had their ups and downs, don’t act like you didn’t just about die of envy anytime Emma shared sweet BTS pics or cuddly date night shots.
Then Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck announced they would be divorcing… a day after their ten-year anniversary. And we all resigned to the notion that love is dead.
Just days later another (nearly) decade-long couple – Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick – called it quits, followed in mid July – to country fans’ dismay – by Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton.

Then today – double whammy – Reba McEntire and Narvel Blackstock called it quits after 26 years of marriage while Gwen Stefani has filed for divorce from her husband of 13 years, Gavin Rossdale.
With all of this devastating news it seems we’re pretty maxed out on heartbreak, right? Well then I hear that my homeboy (We’re both from Philadelphia… just let me have this) has ended his magical partnership with human goddess Jada Pinkett Smith.
Important aside: But seriously – have you seen Gotham or Magic Mike XXL? If I wasn’t already – because come on, she’s always been awesome – I’m totally obsessed. Anyway…
Radar Online reported the story – Secret Split Deal! Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith’s $240 Million Divorce – They Decided To ‘Pull The Plug’ – alleging that the couple were throwing in the towel after 17 years of marriage.
However, the love doctor himself was SICK to death over the rumors, which have plagued the high profile couple throughout their marriage, and decided to set the record straight in the most phenomenal way.
He took to his Facebook account on Monday to assure fans – and haters spreading those nasty rumors – that he and Jada were doing JUST FINE, thank you very much.
He wrote: “Under normal circumstances, I don’t usually respond to foolishness. (Because it’s contagious) But, so many people have extended me their “deepest condolences” that I figured – “What the hell… I can be foolish, too!”
“So, in the interest of redundant, repetitious, over & over-again-ness… Jada and I are… NOT GETTING A DIVORCE!!!!!!!!!!!!! : -)”
The suave superstar continued, reminding fans to always be weary of the source: “I promise you all – if I ever decide to divorce my Queen – I SWEAR I’ll tell you myself!”
He finished off his applause-worthy post with a bit of a burn, noting: “#Dumb People Should Have to Wear Scarlet D’s.”
And Jada responded succinctly, yet beautifully, as she classily let everyone know the subject had been closed: “My king has spoken.”
BE STILL MY HEART YOU GUYS
*All the hands raised up in praise emojis.* Long live the King and Queen… and may they now have at least a few months without any new split rumors.
Until next time,
