As most of us know by now, the rumors about Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith splitting are false.  The happy pair set the record straight Tuesday according to People, claiming that the buzz in the tabloid’s about their 13 year marriage coming to an end are not true. The couple made a joint statement saying, ‘Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false.  We are still together, and our marriage is intact.’ While talk of the split was swirling around, the Smith’s were shopping at Michaels Crafts acting cutesy and giddy according to onlookers. The couple’s son Trey tried to squash the headlines too by tweeting ‘Did #WillandJada split? No they did NOT split!  False information … it’s not true RETWEET!!!’

Cupid’s Advice

When people lie or start spreading rumors, it can play havoc on even the happiest couple.  Cupid has some advice on how to handle this stressful situation, even if it’s truly bothering you inside.

1. Laugh It Off: If you know the rumors you’re hearing are completely false, simply laugh them off.  When others see that you aren’t taking them seriously, the novelty should eventually wear off.

2. Speak Up:  What better way to squash nasty gossip than to set the record straight yourself.  Sometimes heading the rumors off and dispelling the negative accusations may be the only option.  Be sincere when you talk to others, this will demonstrate that you and your partner have nothing to hide.

3. Be Strong:  Try not to let the rumors bother you.  Go out in public as usual and have a great time.  If people see you acting normal and the two of you still together the hype will begin to fade.
