As a result of the well-known Will Smith slap, the Smith family has been the subject of rumours and speculation for a long time. Now, news outlets and people on Twitter are saying that Will Smith is going to split up with Jada Pinkett-Smith.
It makes a lot of sense that this would happen since Will is said to be upset that Jada didn’t back him up when he tried to honour her by slapping Chris Rock. We’re aware of how crazy that sounds.
There are a lot of rumours about Will Smith and J.A.D. Pinkett.
Fans are worried about the rumours that Will and Jada are splitting up, so they are using Twitter to find out if the rumours are true.
Reports that they are going to get a divorce and that Jada would get a big share of her husband’s wealth if it’s true have given the rumours more power.

But the rumours are based on a misunderstanding of an article that used to be in Heat Magazine but is no longer available.
Let’s talk about why you shouldn’t believe these crazy rumours.
The Couple Hasn’t Spoken About Getting A Divorce
The rumours that Will and Jada were getting a divorce came from a now-deleted story in Heat Magazine that was picked up by many other news outlets, including the Mirror. The story was based on a quote from a source close to the couple.
The quote says, “Tensions between them have been clear ever since the Oscars scandal. There have been issues for years, but right now they hardly talk at all. If they were to break up, Jada would be entitled to half of Will’s $350 million wealth under Californian law.
First of all, the insider hasn’t said anything about the couple splitting up. They just say “if they were to split,” which means that it could happen.
Also, neither Will nor Jada has said anything about the divorce rumours or even hinted that they might be splitting up.
So, there’s no reason to think these rumours are true.
HITC has asked Will and Jada for their thoughts on the matter. But as of the time this article was written, we had not heard back from them.
After The Oscars, There Were Also Other Rumours
In the days after the Oscars incident, there were a number of rumours going around.
One of them said the actor was taken into custody and charged. But Will didn’t have to go to court because Chris Rock didn’t file a complaint.
“The person involved has chosen not to file a police report,” the police told Deadline. If the person involved wants a police report later, LAPD will be ready to do an investigation report.”
Another idea was that Chris was going to wear a cheek pad and that the slap he gave on stage was faked.
But Reuters said in their story that the picture that went viral and was used to say that Chris wore a cheek pad was actually “altered.”
