FACT CHECK: ARE WILL SMITH AND JADA PINKETT GETTING A DIVORCE IN 2022?

A lot has happened since Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the Academy Awards 2022. Now, fans fear the actor and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, are getting a divorce.

The rumors stem from an old, now-deleted report that has been misconstrued. The couple’s personal lives have become subject to discussions since the Oscars fiasco, and the latest rumor isn’t the first they have been dragged into.

However, it is important you get the facts right before believing or engaging in speculations surrounding the star couple’s relationship and marriage.

RUMORS ABOUT WILL SMITH AND JADA PINKETT RUN WILD Concerned fans have taken to Twitter to check if the rumors about Will and Jada’s separation are true.

The rumors gained momentum following recent reports that suggested they are headed for a divorce, and how Jada would receive a major chunk of her husband’s fortune if it’s true.

However, the speculations are a result of the misconstruction of an article by Heat Magazine, which isn’t available anymore. Let us explain why you should stay away from these wild rumors.

THE COUPLE HASN’T SPOKEN ABOUT GETTING A DIVORCE The rumors about Will and Jada’s divorce stemmed from a now-deleted story by Heat Magazine, which was relayed by many other outlets including the Mirror, that consists of a quote from an insider.

The quote reads: “Ever since the Oscars scandal, tensions between them have been palpable. There have been problems for years, but they’re barely speaking right now. If they were to split, Will has a fortune of $350million that Jada would be entitled to half of under Californian law.”

Furthermore, neither Will nor Jada have addressed rumors about their divorce or even hinted about separating. Therefore, there is no reason to believe these rumors.

OTHER RUMORS THAT EMERGED AFTER THE OSCARS Several rumors surfaced in the days following the Oscars incident. One of them claimed that the actor was arrested and charged. However, no legal action was taken against Will as Chris Rock declined to file a complaint.

The police told Deadline: “The individual involved has declined to file a police report. If the involved party desires a police report at a later date, LAPD will be available to complete an investigative report.”

Another speculation suggested that Chris was wearing a cheek pad and the on-stage slap was staged. But, Reuters clarified in their story that the viral picture used by some to claim that Chris wore a cheek pad was in fact ‘altered’.
