Will and Jada make a public display of Team Smith solidarity
Call it "Will and Jada, the Morning After": Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith were photographed together Wednesday, smiling and laughing over brunch the morning after shutting down a tabloid report that they were separating.
Sans kids, the couple hit Bob Morris' Paradise Cove Beach Cafe for omelets, coffee and paparazzi pictures, said TMZ, which shortly after brunch just happened to catch Will and Jada together a few miles down Pacific Coast Highway, shopping, smiling, holding hands and posing with fans.
"They were laughing and being cutesy — they seemed to be getting along just fine," an onlooker told People.
Will and Jada had branded a report that they'd separated as "completely false." "We are still together, and our marriage is intact," they said Tuesday in a joint statement.
In Touch continued to fan the fire Wednesday, putting more online from its print-edition report. Chief among the allegations, which were all attributed to an "insider": Will worried that Jada and her "HawthoRNe" costar Marc Anthony had grown "uncomfortably close" and surprised the two together in early August when he showed up unannounced to confront his wife about it. The mag also said that Will and Jada have been living in separate homes.
On Tuesday, reps for Marc Anthony and Jada Smith had denied rumors linking their clients.
Meanwhile, the Ministry was wondering just what it would take to get anyone to go up against Will Smith and Jennifer Lopez at the same time.
