Celebrity Divorce: First Denial, Then Divorce
Earlier this week, In Touch Weekly reported that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are splitting after thirteen years of marriage. Their publicist was apparently late to the news; when TMZ called for comment, she replied "What? In Touch said that? I know nothing about this...Lord. I'm going back to bed."
Though in typical celebrity fashion, Will and Jada issued a statement later that afternoon. "Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false. We are still together, and our marriage is intact," they said.
For Will and Jada, the rumors may be just that, but for many stars, rumors often give way to reality. Below, seven celebrity couples that denied divorce rumors, only to split shortly thereafter. Click through our list and add your own in the comments.
