With multiple exclamation points and in no uncertain terms, film star Will Smith rebutted the latest in a string of divorce rumors that have dogged him and his actress wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, for years.
"Under normal circumstances, I don't usually respond to foolishness. (Because it's contagious)," the "Men in Black" franchise star, 46, posted on Facebook Monday. "But, so many people have extended me their 'deepest condolences' that I figured -- 'What the hell . . . I can be foolish, too!' So, in the interest of redundant, repetitious, over & over-again-ness . . . Jada and I are . . . NOT GETTING A DIVORCE!!!!!!!!!!!!! : -) I promise you all -- if I ever decide to divorce my Queen -- I SWEAR I'll tell you myself!" he said, adding, "Dumb People Should Have to Wear Scarlet D's."
The tabloid website RadarOnline.com had reported earlier in the day that Smith and "Gotham" star Jada Pinkett Smith, 43, were ending their 17-year marriage over mutual infidelity and that the couple planned to announce a divorce at the end of summer. The Smiths have two children, Jaden, 17, and Willow, 14, and Smith has a son, Trey, 22, with first wife ShereeZampino.
Radar said the most recent rumors center on Will Smith and actress Margot Robbie, 25, his co-star in this year's "Focus" and the upcoming "Suicide Squad."
In February, Robbie told a radio show in her native Australia that she and British director Tom Ackerley remained in a relationship despite his living in London and she in Los Angeles.
The Smiths similarly debunked a tabloid claim of divorce in August 2011, saying in a joint statement, "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."
