Will & Jada Pinkett Smith

Kids' Fame at Root of

Summer Marriage Troubles

12/17/2011 4:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith have bounced back from the separation rumors that plagued them earlier this year ... and TMZ has learned it was differing opinions on how to manage their superstar kids that caused the original strife.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ they are doing "wonderful" now -- but earlier this year, sources tell TMZ there was tension between the two over how best to manage the careers of Jaden and Willow.

We're told each had their own ideas for how things should be handled -- with Will pushing more for full-blown stardom and Jada leaning towards easing them in to things.

But our sources say that bad patch -- which included rumors Jada had an affair with Marc Anthony -- is now past them and things are back to normal.

Will's rep had no comment.

I lost a lot of respect for Will Smith when they started pushing their kids down people's throats, especially the girl. Apparently giving the kids a childhood isn't as important to them as money and attention. Their real problem is probably a clash of their egos.

Hopefully Jada won that battle. Will's plan is sure to turn them into the next Lindsay Lohan, Edward Furlong (the kid from Terminator) or the dozens of other former child stars that have made a mess of their adult lives.

How about doing something wild and impetuous and letting the kids be kids?

Is that a big herpes sore on Jada's lip?

BTW they both pushed the kids into entertainment. They are no better than Dina and Micheal Lohan. S***bags the whole lot of em.

Those kids are SO annoying, omg! Hey Will and Jada, I have a great idea: get them the HELL out of the business so we won't have to see them ever, ever again! And save your marriage at the same time! Thanks!

Really tired of stars throwing their kids into showbiz..money, power, and fame, all to one family, and meantime they miss a "normal" childhood. I so believe Jada had an affair.

Nonsense!!!! I never believed this marriage was based on "love". Always felt it was a business arrangement----to clear up the "rumors" concerning Will and Jada individually...

No one believes Jada would have an affair with a man. Even the skeleton of a man. Come on.

They both lack talent. They should just be kids.

GRYFFINDOR!    

I heard from someone who knows people in the entertainment industry that it's common knowledge that Will and Jada have gay orgies. I was so shocked when she said this and thought she was full of it but after reading all these comments... is it true?? Why haven't I heard this before? I love Will and I think they're such a cute couple that's lasted so long. I hope it's not true. Haha.

They were probably arguing over who looks more like a boy Jaden or Willow.
