?Under normal circumstances, I don’t usually respond to foolishness. (Because it’s contagious) But, so many people have extended me their “deepest condolences” that I figured – “What the hell… I can be foolish, too!
So, in the interest of redundant, repetitious, over & over-again-ness… Jada and I are…
NOT GETTING A DIVORCE!!!!!!!!!!!!! : -)
I promise you all – if I ever decide to divorce my Queen – I SWEAR I’ll tell you myself!

According to the actress, she has gotten so used to the rumors already that all she can think of when something new surfaces is:
?Every year there?s a new [rumor]. And I?m like, ‘Here we go. Get ready. Are ya holdin? on tight?'” she told the magazine, adding that though her and Will’s relationship isn’t perfect, she doesn’t understand why people assume the couple would simply give up on their marriage.?And relationships go through shifts because in life, things shift,” she said. “So people are automatically like, ?What?s going on? They must be getting a divorce.? Well, no. But when people feel those shifts and there?s a mystery, they have to fill it with something,” she said on an interview with inflight magazine, American Way.
The recent rumors say that the couple is just finalizing how to divide the properties their acquired during their marriage, and their slew of successful films.
