The divorce rumors quieted down for a couple months but Jada Pinkett Smith and husband of 15 years Will Smith are forced to once again defend their marriage.
Despite rumors of a rocky marriage, 40-year-old actress Jada Pinkett Smith dispelled any rumors of a possible divorce from her husband, famed actor Will Smith.
“It seems like that happens at least once a year, or at least once every two years—it’s rumored that we’re getting a divorce,” Pinkett said in the September issue of Essence magazine. “But no, we’re not getting a divorce. Where am I going to go? That’s my boo. It’s like another part of me.”
As the mother of two famous children, Pinkett understands that living a life under the microscope comes with the territory. Beyond the talk of her relationship with her husband, she deals with the constant criticism of her daughter, Willow, 11.
“How people feel about Willow is how people feel about Willow. But what I’m most concerned about is how Willow feels about herself,” said Smith. “She’s an independent, courageous, genius, talented little girl. I’m happy for her, that she can just be who she is.”
Meanwhile Will and Jada landed at the no. 5 spot on Forbes highest paid celebrities.
Beyonce and hubby Jay-Z headed off the list with $78 million while last year’s no. 1 Gisele Bundchen and her Tom Brady dropped to no. 2.
Victoria and David Beckham snagged the no. 4 spot while Jada’s good friend Angelina Jolie and Brad landed at no. 4.
