New York - Will Smith took the unusual step on Monday of publicly shooting down a report that he and his actress wife of 17 years had decided to divorce.
Smith's marriage to Jada Pinkett Smith has been a subject of tabloid rumour for several years, and on Monday, Radar Online reported that the couple had decided to split and would make a divorce announcement at the end of the summer.
Smith, 46, then released a statement on his Facebook page, he wrote: "Under normal circumstances, I don't usually respond to foolishness. (Because it's contagious).
"But, so many people have extended me their 'deepest condolences' that I figured - 'What the hell... I can be foolish, too!' So, in the interest of redundant, repetitious, over & over-again-ness... Jada and I are...NOT GETTING A DIVORCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Smith added that if he ever decided to divorce "I SWEAR I'll tell you myself!"
Jada Pinkett Smith, 43, then took to Twitter to let everyone know her "king has spoken".
