*In Touch Weekly is reporting that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have separated.
“An insider” is the only source named by the celebrity news magazine, and no confirmation – or denial – had been issued as of press time by the couple’s publicists.
The two were married in 1997, and have two children together, Willow, who had a hit song with “Whip My Hair,” and Jaden, who costarred with his father in “The Pursuit of Happyness” and starred in a remake of “The Karate Kid.” Smith has a son, Trey, from an earlier marriage.
Whether the Smiths have had an open marriage, accepting of occasional flings, has been widely discussed, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer. He explained a couple of years ago that they openly admit being attracted to other people, and would ask permission of the other first before having sex with someone else.
TMZ placed a call to Jada’s rep, Karynne Tencer, who told the website … “What? In Touch said that? I know nothing about this … Lord. I’m going back to bed.”
