Justin Bieber has given his absolute backing to Will and Jada Smith as they fight vicious rumors circulating about their relationship.
Rumors that Will and Jada were splitting up begun earlier this week when In Touch Magazine published reports that their relationship was in trouble and rumors quickly circulated that they were heading for a divorce. The couple released a statement this week declaring that their “marriage is intact,” however that has done little to quell the gossip about their relationship, and rumors of trouble continue to be spoken about in the media.
Justin Bieber, who has worked closely with the entire Smith family including Willow and Jaden, posted comments on Twitter to help beat back any talk of a separation or divorce.
“Will and Jada are one the best couples ever. #FACT #real,” he tweeted.
Will and Jada, along with their two children, attended the premiere of Bieber’s documentary, “Justin BIeber: Never Say Never” earlier this year, which featured performances by both children.
Other Hollywood celebrities have also shown support for Will and Jada. Russell Simmons, creator of the Phat Farm fashion clothing line, took to his Twitter account to defend the 13-year-marriage between Will and Jada Smith.
“Check out new photos of my man and his wife. Taken a few minutes ago.” Simmons provided a link to photographs of Will and Jada smiling while shopping together in Malibu Wednesday to disprove rumors of a split.
Will Smith’s son, Trey, posted on his Twitter account Wednesday disaffirming the divorce rumor for the second time.
“Let me just say… the rumors need to stop. Will and Jada aren’t getting divorced, #ItsAllLies.”
Trey had already tried to put a stop to the rumors the day before, tweeting, “Will and Jada getting a DIVORCE… NOT TRUE AT ALL!! RETWEET.”
As well as rumors of a split, tabloids have published accusations of Jada being unfaithful to Will. In Touch Magazine has reported that it has evidence that Jada and recently single, Marc Anthony, had an affair.
Jada’s rep, Karynne Tencer, told People Magazine Tuesday: “All the rumors regarding Marc Anthony and Jada are false. Completely untrue. As for [the reports of a split between] Will and Jada, I’m not commenting on their personal life.”
Marc Anthony’s rep also spoke to People Magazine, saying: “We unequivocally deny this. Enough is enough. There are families involved, friendships involved. This is NOT true.”
In Touch Magazine, which was responsible for the initial reports of marital trouble between the power couple, are being threatened with a lawsuit over its claims.
