Rumors recently surfaced again that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s marriage is in serious trouble. Although it isn’t the first time that this celebrity couple’s marriage has been questioned, the trial separation that they’re rumored to be on now is beginning to look more and more like a permanent breakup.
If the celebrity couple’s marriage wasn’t in danger, it definitely might be now after Mr. Smith, 45, was reportedly caught getting a little too close to his much younger co-star, 23-year-old Margot Robbie. According to several witnesses, Smith and Robbie recently attended a party together in New Orleans and went into a curtained photo booth, where they supposedly snapped some raunchy pictures together. The actor reportedly took off his shirt and pressed up against Robbie’s chest while she was wearing just her bra. “He wasn’t acting like a married man; he gave no signs that he was in a committed relationship,” said one party attendee. “What kind of married man would go into a photo booth with a sexy 23-year-old girl and start to undress?”
Although Smith hasn’t confirmed or denied the rumored affair with Robbie, it doesn’t help his case that he recently admitted there was definitely chemistry between them, despite the fact that he’s almost twice her age. “When we did our audition together, we had a natural chemistry,” the actor said shortly before they started filming their upcoming movie, Focus. “I think it’s going to be a lot of fun.”
It sounds like they’ve been having a little too much fun. “They were hanging all over each other, laughing like they were a new couple in love,” said an onlooker, who added that Smith was by no means intoxicated and knew exactly what he was doing.
Meanwhile, Smith and his wife haven’t been spotted together for the past two months, which is further fueling reports that this celebrity couple’s marriage is over. Earlier this week, she attended an event solo and made a pretty bold statement by opting not to wear her wedding ring.
She’s also been making some cryptic statements lately, about going “through a storm with your spouse” and that her marriage is based on trust. “Will and I can both do whatever we want because we trust each other to do so,” she said, quickly clarifying that this doesn’t mean that they have an “open relationship.”
What do you think: Is flirting considered cheating?
