After 17 years, superstar Will Smith and Jada Pinkett are reportedly ending their rocky marriage with a secret divorce.
“For Will and Jada, holding it together these past few years has been tough because their marriage has been on life support for a long time,” a source told radaronline.com. “They’re exhausted from trying to maintain the façade of a happy union. They’ve decided to pull the plug in a carefully choreographed manner, and agree announcing their split at the end of the summer is the right move.”
They have already “worked out a confidential settlement to protect their $240 million fortune and prepare their children (son Jaden, 17, and daughter Willow, 14) for the fallout,” the source added. Hinting at the split earlier this year in an interview, the Bad Boys star admitted that their marriage had “died”. Meanwhile, Jada, 43, seemed to acknowledge Will’s notorious wandering eye, telling Howard Stern, “I’m not his watcher. He’s a grown man.” – IANS
