Will Jada Divorce

Will Smith is refuting rumors that his marriage to Jada Pinkett Smith is on the rocks.

The 43-year-old actor recently told "Access Hollywood's" Shaun Robinson that the constant divorce rumors, which surfaced last summer, are "just a part of the game."

"With that type of stuff, you can’t take that personally. It’s just a game," Smith said. "I can understand where somebody would have something in their heart where they need to stab at somebody, where they need to poke at somebody. But I’m indestructible."

The couple, who have been married for 14 years, first addressed the rumors in August 2011, issuing a joint statement saying they were "still together" and that their marriage was "intact."

Then in February 2012, after reports emerged that Pinkett-Smith had met with celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, the actress used her Facebook to release a steamy ballad dedicated to her husband.

Earlier this month, Pinkett-Smith told French magazine Gala that although she and Smith spend time apart for work, the divorce speculation is "ridiculous": "Every year, one celebrity couple is under the microscope. This year, unluckily, it's us! I almost want to say that we should have been expecting it," she said, adding: "Will and I know the truth. We're waiting peacefully for the storm to blow over."

The star couple have two kids, Jaden and Willow, whose respective careers have been speculated to be the cause of the Smiths' marital problems. Smith has one son from a previous marriage.
