The famous couple have been married for 13 years and have been the envy of celebrities and fans alike, displaying a perfect family picture. Will has a son, Trey, from a previous marriage and the couple have two children of their own – the super talented actor Jaden and music artist Willow.
We thought nothing could shake the superstar family, until In Touch Weekly announced today that the couple have decided to separate. The news seemed unbelievable to me, as the pair are known as Hollywood’s golden couple.
My disbelief surrounding the split are backed up by Will when in 2006, he said that the “only thing that could end his marriage was death.” He also added: “Divorce can’t be an option. With Jada, I stood up in front of God and said, ‘Til death do us part.’ So there are two possible outcomes. One, we are going to be together till death, or two, I am dead.”
TMZ called Jada’s rep Karynne Tencer to address the rumour. She said to TMZ: “What? In Touch said that? I know nothing about this … Lord. I’m going back to bed.” Not very helpful, then. No other details have been released as yet, but we hope this news isn’t true!
It was only last month that the couple let photographers into their multi million Malibu home for a family photo shoot for Architectural Digest. Jada was quoted in the magazine saying: “For Will and me this home was always a spiritual endeavour. We’re very earthy, organic people. We wanted to create a family retreat, something made by hand and as natural as possible, something that ties back to the land.” She added: “Whatever it becomes, the craftsmanship will always represent our union and the love of our family.”
Oh Will and Jada, put us out of our misery and say it isn’t true…
