Was Will Smith Caught Cheating on His Wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, with a Much Younger Co-Star?

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?
