Splitsville for Will and Jada? (UPDATED: Apparently not?)

Will Jada and Kids
We apologize for the hacky subject line, but we could hardly resist. We so seldom get to blog of a rumored break-up.

UPDATE – 8/4/2015: As you can read here, the Smiths deny these rumors. But, do read the rest of yesterday’s entry below.

But, as the subject line’s query suggests, celebrity power-couple — and parents to children alternately regarded as delightfully eccentric and/or insufferable — Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, seem to be in the process of ending their 17-year marriage.

A source told Radar Online, for a piece you can read here, “For Will and Jada, holding it together these past few years has been tough because their marriage has been on life support for a long time.”

Radar describes the split, and corresponding “blockbuster secret divorce deal,” as being in the works for some time. The above quoted source added, “They’re exhausted from trying to maintain the façade of a happy union.” But the soon-to-be ex-Smiths decided it best to wait until summer’s end to go public with the dissolution of their marriage.

You can learn more about the Smiths’ “confidential settlement to protect their $240 million fortune” by visiting Radar‘s site, and you can explore the best of what the Web has to offer of Will and Jada’s illustrious lives and careers by clicking their highlighted names above and visiting their PeekYou profiles.

Below we see Will and Jada during (presumably) happier times, while the pair hosted the 2005 BET Awards.
