Gossip Magazine InTouch could be facing legal trouble for allegations it has published about the state of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith's marriage.
The web has been abuzz since Tuesday when rumors that the celebrity couple was separating surfaced. Representatives for both Smith and Pinkett Smith have released statements on Wednesday saying that they are not separating and that the rumors are completely false.
Supplementary rumors that Pinkett Smith has been having an off-screen affair with her Hawthorne co-star Marc Anthony have also been “unequivocally” denied by Anthony's representatives.
However, an article in the current issue of InTouch magazine, released Thursday, alleges the contrary. The dramatic cover states, “Two marriages destroyed: Jada steals J.Lo's husband!”
Within the magazine, the six-page feature claims to have details from sources and photo proof that Pinkett Smith and Anthony have been secretly involved.
InTouch alleges that Smith found Pinkett Smith and Anthony together in early August when he made a surprise visit to one of their Los Angeles homes. The article 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.
InTouch 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 InTouch.
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.
InTouch claims that the source said Anthony and Pinkett Smith's co-tweeting about how much fun they were having on set, coupled with Anthony's recent split from wife Jennifer Lopez was the smoking gun for Smith to realize that an off-screen affair was going on.
However, it was reported Wednesday that Smith and Pinkett Smith have contacted their legal team and that action may be taken against InTouch.
