Will & Jada Pinkett Smith

Kids' Fame at Root of

Summer Marriage Troubles

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

1216_will_jada_smith_getty_EX
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.

Their marital troubles have nothing to do with their kids. It's widely known in the industry that Will and Jada are bearding for one another.
The "Church" of Scientology has Jada under the same 10-year contract that they had Nicole Kidman under. Once Jada's "term of service" is up, she will be allowed to divorce Will, and the CoS won't "disconnect" her from her kids.
End of story.

Since Jada and Will are 'perfect' you gotta blame the children. Because they both live in a world where they believe their children have talent and people think they are the #&*t!

Yeah. OK. Whatever. That was the reason? I doubt it. They're both in showbiz. He's more successful than she. He started in music and became sucessful in tv and movies. She has not been that successful in either. She was on her way to success before she met him. Nevertheless, he has a better track record in all genres. So, he would've known what he was doing and she would've deferred to it. Plus, with their wealth and connections, they could've had the best of both worlds. Money buys time and it would've bought their kids the time to become the superstars he envisioned at the rate she wanted. So, find another excuse.

Too bad they can't let their kids be kids...school, playtime, maybe acting things during summer break.

Murder suicide, kids included, is THE ONLY solution to the plague that is this family.

So first you claim that Jada has an affair, now you claim that their kids carears are to blame. Clearly your so called "sources" are full of crap!

Don't believe a word of it. How can two children, make you want to go separate ways. The real reason will come forth in a couple of months. Open marriage, now that most likely the cause. Isn't that an oxy moron, anyway. How can it be a marriage if it's open. No where in the marriage vows, have I ever heard "open marriage."

Dear Will and Jada.

Please name me one child that hasn't grown up to be dysfunctional after getting thrown into stardom at an early age.

One.

I will more than likely NO*****ch ANY tv shows or movies with the Smith kids in them. I don't believe actor kids should be pushed into acting so young - it's all about money and fame and they're just making their kids fame whores. As far as the marriage..who the hell cares! Jada is just a stuck-up nothing. I cannot stand seeing her pictures such as on red carpet photos...she thinks she's posing with some kind of sexy look on her face and she's just plain homely to me. WHATever.

Let's see....how about allowing them to be children and enjoy their childhood instead of putting them to work.

Seriously, Marc Anthony?!? Does anyone think that Jada would go from the amazing Will Smith to this guy who looks like a refugee from a prison camp! C'mon!

You can make a ***quat famous if you throw enough money and rumors at it. Big deal. The Kim K school of fame method. Take it in the Butt, and your life jumps out of the rut.
