How long has it really been over?
Are Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith getting divorced? Rumors have been circulating claiming that the famous couple have been struggling emotionally for years now. This isn't the first time there's been rumors about their marriage, which only adds fuel to the fire.
There's been rumors of unfaithfulness on both sides, while many people claim that the couple has an open marriage. Nothing is confirmed, and an open marriage wouldn't necessarily mean the couple is having trouble. In fact, if they have an open marriage, that could account for any rumors about infidelity.
Recently, rumors were circulating, and where there's smoke, there’s fire. That's the problem with celebrity gossip: sometimes it's hard to tell if there even is any smoke.
That being said, it wouldn't be the most shocking thing in the world if their marriage ended. Here are 7 reasons why their marriage has been over for a long ass time (even though it might not be over!).
1. Jada's comments about variety imply she has a wandering eye.
While promoting Magic Mike XXL, Jada was asked who her favorite costar was. She answered by saying that she likes them all because she like variety. No judgment, but usually when someone starts talking about variety, it means that they're not happy with what they've got.
2. They've been married for 18 years.
That's a long time to be married! The average marriage lasts around 8 years in this country. At this point, it's weird for them not to split up.
3. They ran out names to give their kids.
Even though they're both perfectly healthy (as far as we know), they can't have anymore kids. After naming their first two kids after each other, they ran out of names for any more kids. They probably just don't want to take the chance of having another kid and having to it something like "Wil-ada."
4. They're both parents, and parents just don’t understand.
Will Smith said it himself: "Parents just don't understand." What don't they understand? They don't understand anything. If they can't understand anything, how are they going to keep their marriage working?
5. Jaden's Twitter stirs up sh*t between them.
Imagine being responsible for Jaden Smith's Twitter account? Imagine having to look at the world and say, "Yeah, I created that." They probably both blame the other one for that.
6. After Earth killed Will's mojo.
Will Smith had one of the most successful streaks at the box office until After Earth came out. Sometimes, when someone loses their mojo, they lose it all over the place. It's hard to have a marriage with dead mojo.
7. Jada fell in love with a fresh prince, but he's turning into an Uncle Phil.
Look, time passes and people get older. Will Smith used to play the cocky smart mouth in his movies. Now, he usually plays someone who's kind of grumpy. Will Smith hasn't even released a rap song for any of his movies in forever. He's just not the same man he used to be.
