“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.”
“Intact?” Curious choice of words for a couple who usually go on and on about how much they like to do sexy times with each other in every other interview they’ve ever given. TMZ‘s version of it makes a little more sense:
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are having significant problems in their marriage, but they have NOT made a decision to separate… at least not yet.
It’s “definitely a possibility” but they haven’t pulled the trigger. Will, Jada and their kids are going away together soon as a family… [as] a last ditch effort to save the relationship.
We also asked our sources about the somewhat curious statement from Will and Jada that their marriage is “intact.” Specifically, why didn’t they go the more traditional PR route and say they’re still in love and committed to each other? Our sources privately said, the language was “carefully constructed.”
Well, like my grandpappy always said, “where’s there’s smoke, there’s fire.” Mostly he said it because he was an arsonist, but it can also be used as a metaphor meaning that the very presence of a rumor indicates something is afoot, even if not exactly what is rumored.
