The star celebs are two of Hollywood’s hottest players when it comes to being a celebrity couple. They jointly founded Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation, an organization built to aide inner-city community development and help fun youth educational projects for under-privileged kids and their impoverished families. They are well-known as a green celebrity couple with humanitarian interests centering around children, but what about their desire to protect their own kids from the effects of divorce?

Their exact words shared by their respective press camps after being prompted by their children say the marriage is intact.
How romantic, right? Here’s the scoop behind the statement — and why their words to the press make it appear as if the Hollywood hot shots are staying together for their celebrity kids.
The married movie star celebs celebrity kids were so rattled by the reports their parents marriage was in trouble the pooled their press camp powers so Will and Jada could issue a joint press statement to quell the rumors.
People magazine shared, “After a day of buzz following a tabloid report that they have separated after 13 years of marriage, the couple have put a stop to the rumors.”
The hot in Hollywood famous celebs stated, “Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false,” in a statement released on August 23, 2011.
“We are still together, and our marriage is intact…” claimed the lovebirds; but what really prompted the open declaration of affection?
The couple has kids who were reading online gossip, and the bad news their parents broke up and were getting a divorce was both hurtful and what they say is a nasty rumor that is unsubstantiated.
People further revealed, “Earlier, Jada‘s rep refused to comment on the split rumors. But Will’s son Trey took to Twitter on the matter.”
“Did #WillandJada split? No they did Not split!” proclaimed Trey Smith.
Talking about having your own gossip cop in residence!
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith are the proud parents of Trey, Jaden, and Willow. Will’s oldest son, Willard Smith III (Trey Smith) was born on November 11, 1992 and is Jada’s stepson. Jaden Christopher Syre Smith (Jaden Smith), also a boy, was born July 8, 1998. Their daughter, Willow Camille Reign Smith (Willow Smith) born October 31, 2000.
Folks are familiar with their celebrity kids in part thanks to their son Jaden Smith starring in the remake of The Karate Kid with beloved Asian actor Jackie Chan. His sister Willow has also launched her music career and is already known as a pop diva by the ripe old age of ten.
When little Trey got angry about the rumors in public, he inadvertently brought the subject of tabloid rumors and Hollywood news affecting celebrity kids.
One thinks about all the harmful breakup rumors that have swirled over the years about celebrity couples like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and the effects on their 6 young children. No wonder Brangelina takes their brood overseas to third world countries and spends so much time with them outdoors, out doing fun activities, and away from the computers! If Maddox ever gets a Twitter account, it will be interesting to see how he handles the rumor mills gossip about his famous parents.
In the meantime, watching to see how little Trey, Jaden, and Willow hold up to the media spotlight being put on their family and offering them support is likely prudent. Keeping their lives intact is paramount. Since the green celebrity couple already have demonstrated they realize the impact divorce can have on children, prehaps they will be willing to do whatever it takes to stay together for the sake of the kids.
The rumor mills are saying the two are struggling through a rough patch in their marriage not because they are fighting — but because Jada may have been cheating on Will with none other than Latin singer Marc Anthony, the estranged ex of American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez.
Lopez was also accused of cheating on her husband with a video co-star. Did Mark Anthony lash out at his wife by sleeping with Jada Pinkett Smith?
Hopefully not, as the backlash of such a tryst would affect the children of both Hollywood marriages far more than it does any of the four spouses.
That may be why the couple was spotted out in public today all smiles — to make amends for parental indiscretions and appease their celebrity children.
