Just last month they opened the doors of their luxury Malibu home and happily posed for an intimate family photo shoot.
But Hollywood power couple Will Smith, 42, and wife Jade Pinkett-Smith’s seemingly picture perfect marriage has now come to a shock end, according to a new report.
The pair, who have been married for 13 years, are said to have decided to call it quits, according to America’s In Touch Weekly magazine.
They certainly gave no hint of trouble during their interview with Architectural Digest magazine only weeks ago.
When describing the layout of the 25,000sq ft house, Smith gushed that it had been designed with no â€˜dead endsâ€¦ to create an infinite cycle that represented what Jada and I hoped for our love’.
Jada, 39, also told the magazine: â€˜For Will and me this home was always a spiritual endeavour.
â€˜We’re very earthy, organic people. We wanted to create a family retreat, something made by hand and as natural as possible, something that ties back to the land.’
She continued: â€˜Whatever it becomes, the craftsmanship will always represent our union and the love of our family.’
This will be the second marriage to end for Smith, who divorced former fashion design student Sheree Zampino in 1995 after
three years together.
They have a son, Willard Christopher Smith, also known as Trey, who is now 18.
He famously dedicated his 1998 single, Just the Two of Us, to Trey. Lyrics included: â€˜It didn’t work out with me and your mom/But yo, push come to shove/You was conceived in love.’
After his first divorce, Smith found comfort in Jada, whom he had first met in 1990 when she auditioned and was rejected for the role of his girlfriend on his hit TV show, The Fresh Prince.
In 1997, they married in a lavish ceremony at a mansion near her hometown of Baltimore in front 100 friends and family.
Smith is one of the biggest film stars in Hollywood, with his blockbuster hits including Independence Day, I, Robot, Hitch, I Am Legend, The Pursuit of Happyness and I Am Legend.
He recently began filming the third instalment of his hit franchise, Men In Black.
Jada, who enjoyed success with her acting career early on, recently spoke of her decision to sacrifice her singing aspirations for the sake of her family.
In an interview with the August issue of Redbook magazine she claimed she even turned down a chance to perform with Guns & Roses to support her children’s budding careers.
â€˜It was excruciating, completely excruciating,’ Jada said of her decision.
â€˜When Jaden was auditioning for The Pursuit of Happyness, my band had just gotten an offer to open for Guns N’ Roses in Europe.’
â€˜For me, that was unbelievable. But the choice was: I could be a rock star, or I could be on the set with my son to make sure he was healthy and happy. We all know how that story ended!’
Jada admitted she would rather be performing but she knows that her duty is to her children.
â€˜I had to make choices. Believe me, I would still be on the road with my band, Wicked Wisdom, and making as many movies as I can a year, and doing all sorts of other things if I didn’t have the responsibility of a family.’
â€˜But I have children with their own talents and dreams, and I know I have to be standing next to them for that journey.’
