Will Smith has set the record straight after reports suggested he was planning to divorce his wife of 17 years, Jada Pinkett Smith. The actor described the rumours as "foolishness" in a Facebook post on Monday, adding that he and Jada had not split.
"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!'" he told his 74 million followers.
"So in the interest of redundant, repetitious, over & over-again-ness… Jada and I are… NOT GETTING A DIVORCE !!!!!!!!!!!!! : -)

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have denied divorce rumours
"I promise you all – if I ever decided to divorce my Queen – I SWEAR I'll tell you myself!"
Jada also dismissed the speculation on Twitter, writing: "My king has spoken."
Will and Jada tied the knot in 1997 and have two children together – 17-year-old Jaden and 14-year-old Willow. Their marriage has been subject to speculation for years, and they were forced to issue a strongly worded statement of denial after Jada was falsely linked to Marc Anthony in 2011.
However Jada has recently insisted that she would never cheat on her husband.
"After you've been with somebody for 20 years, you think there's any room for [jealousy]? He knows he got me on lockdown," she explained on the Today show.
The Magic Mike XXL actress has also previously spoken of the secret to their successful marriage, telling Extra: "Your partner has to be your best, best, friend. And he's my best friend."
Speaking about marriage, she added: "You have to have kind of a warrior mentality. You have to be a soldier for love.
"You have to be able to withstand tough times and just because the tough times don't come doesn't mean it's time to stop… it means it's time to dig in."
