Jada Pinkett-Smith and Will Smith have been married for almost two decades, ample time for the media to prey on their every move as a couple, sparking a kaleidoscope of rumors over the years.
And it finally seems that defending their "turbulent" marriage has simply become too tedious now, and they have decided to take it upon themselves the set the record straight. So, whatever you're reading, put it away and listen up because the following comes STRAIGHT from the horse's mouth.
Taking to Facebook on Monday, Will put to rest any speculation that he and his wife were heading to a divorce court.
This is what he said:
And here comes the best bit:
I promise you all - if I ever decide to divorce my Queen - I SWEAR I'll tell you myself!
#Dumb People Should Have to Wear Scarlet D's
To which Queen Jada gloriously chimed in via Twitter with a similarly regal sentiment:
Amen to that.
"You have to be willing to ride the waves"
This is not the first time that the Smiths have been unashamedly ravaged by the media regarding their marriage. From open relationship controversy, to rumors of infidelity (most recently Will's supposed affair with Focus co-star Margot Robbie, for example...) and repeated break-ups, it is safe to say the couple has dealt with their far share of chatter from the press.
Yet, no matter what might be being said about them, the Smiths' response to marriage has always been very real and honest.
For example, Jada is the first to admit that marriage is hard work, riddled with ups and downs. Speaking recently to American Way magazine, she admitted that she and her husband simply weather the next obstacle together, including false speculations:
"Every year there’s a new one. And I’m like, ‘Here we go. Get ready. Are ya holdin’ on tight?'"
"Marriages go through shifts. And relationships go through shifts because in life, things shift. So people are automatically like, ‘What’s going on? They must be getting a divorce.’ Well, no. But when people feel those shifts and there’s a mystery, they have to fill it with something."
Similarly, in the past, Will has also spoke about how he and Jada have had to work hard to maintain their relationship time and time again. He once said:
"Whatever you have is gonna die and you are gonna have to rebirth something new. You have to be willing to ride the waves. There’s gonna be some flat days and some stormy days, and that has to be OK."
Well, let's all hope they ride this gossip train out too! Because after all, wouldn't it be refreshing to see one of Hollywood's most unshakable couples remain so?
All hail, the King and Queen!
