You can add two more names to the list of celebrity couples destined to be together for the long haul.
Jada Pinkett Smith wants everyone to know that her marriage to Will Smith is still very much alive and well, despite persistent rumors that they’ve been fighting, living apart, at odds over their children’s careers and all the other issues that make for good tabloid covers.
“I have no idea” why the gossip continues, she tells the French magazine Gala. “Every year, one celebrity couple is under the microscope. This year, unluckily, it’s us! I almost want to say that we should have been expecting it.”
Yes, she explains, they spend a lot of time apart, but that’s because their film projects send them away often – and that this was the case even before they had children.
“Will and I know the truth,” she says. “We’re waiting peacefully for the storm to blow over.”
Jada also puts to rest the rumor that she disapproves of the paths children Jaden and Willow have taken with their careers.
“As a mom, I’m very proud to see them pursuing the things they love,” she says. “We leave them enough space to express themselves and make their dreams come true….We try not to live through them.”
Considering all the real Hollywood breakups we’ve seen so far this year, we’re glad not to have to add this one to the list.
