Will, Jada ending 17-yr-marriage with secret divorce deal?

LOS ANGELES: After 17 years, Hollywood star couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are reportedly ending their rocky marriage with a secret divorce deal.

“For Will and Jada, holding it together these past few years has been tough because their marriage has been on life support,” a source told radaronline.com. “They’re exhausted from trying to maintain the façade of a happy union. They’ve decided to pull the plug in a carefully choreographed manner, (and) agree announcing their split at the end of the summer is the right move.”

They have already “worked out a confidential settlement to protect their $240 million fortune, and prepare their children (son Jaden, 17, daughter Willow, 14) for the fallout,” said the source.

Hinting at their split earlier this year in an interview, the Bad Boys actor, 46, admitted their marriage had “died”. Meanwhile, Pinkett Smith, 43, seemed to acknowledge Will’s notorious wandering eye, telling Howard Stern, “I’m not his watcher. He’s a grown man.”Rumours started since 2013 that Smith romanced his Suicide Squad co-star Margot Robbie. Pinkett Smith also allegedly cheated in 2011 with Hawthorne co-star Marc Anthony.
