In Touch Magazine could face legal action for allegations it has published about Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith's marriage.
Intense rumors started Tuesday when the publication published reports that the celebrity couple was separating.
The couple released a statement earlier this week saying they are not separating and that the rumors were completely false.
Despite that statement rumors have continued, with further reports claiming that Pinkett Smith had been caught having an off-screen affair with her Hawthorne co-star Marc Anthony. Those rumors have also been “unequivocally” denied by Anthony's representatives.
However, an article in the current issue of In Touch magazine, released Thursday, alleges the contrary. The magazine cover states: “Two Marriages Destroyed: Jada Steals J.Lo's Husband!”
The edition of In Touch features a six-page spread claiming that the publication has details from sources and photo evidence that Pinkett Smith and Anthony have been secretly involved.
In Touch alleges that Will found Pinkett Smith and Anthony together in early August when he made a surprise visit to one of their Los Angeles homes.
The article further claims that an insider was not able to give details of the encounter, but that Jada moved out of the house the next day and Will subsequently fired the house staff, accusing them of covering up the affair.
In Touch claims that sources have witnessed the chemistry between Anthony and Pinkett Smith on the set of the TNT drama Hawthorne.
“On set, everyone noticed the insane chemistry between them," a source allegedly told In Touch.
On the show, Pinkett Smith plays the role of head nurse Christina Hawthorne. In the recent season, Anthony plays police detective Nick Renata, with whom Christina is romantically involved.
It has since been reported that Will and Pinkett Smith have contacted their legal team and that action may be taken against In Touch.
