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.

Will and Jada SUCK! They push their kids into these films, then they blame the kid's, er um, the kid's fame on their marriage. Here's an idea... ALL OF THE SMITH FAMILY CAN STOP MAKING FREAKIN' FILMS! Then we can avoid this whole "2012 is the end of the world" thing.

Why do they have to divorce THIS YEAR. Don't they have enough money to live in separate residences? I just hope they are very very very rare visitors to the WH for the next five years. I would hate to see those children around the Obama girls who are poised, classy, well-spoken, refined, and intelligent. I think there's something wrong with the Smith children. They seem flashy and unclassy. Yes, the Smiths are very rich but they don't seem to be part of DuBois' talented tenth. Rcih black who do not emphasize education for their children just make me grit my teeth. Do they realize how ignorant their children sound Geez! Will and Jada Smith you are better than that.

That would be a shocker. They make such a lovely couple.

These two are managers not parents. Who lets their 10 year girl dress like an LA hooker? Google the Radio interview Willow did with Ryan Seacrest. She tells Ryan she doesn't really have time for school because she is working from the time she gets up as a result she doesn't know the times tables "and things like that". I feel sorry for these two kids. They have managers instead of parents.

I'm sorry that it didn't last. However I knew it wouldn't. After the many years of reports of them having an open marriage and having a swinging life style!

My boyfriend and I were in love for 3 and half years and we lived together almost 2 and half year. He used to care me more than his own life. He used to love me and take care of me like a baby. Then suddenly he started to act wired since january and broke up with me in two week back saying he has a new girl friend. But again he started to come back to me 6 days but But finally on the 7 day I figured out he was sleeping with that girl and me at the same time. That girl is known as a very bad girl and my boy friend knows that but still he is with her. That's little unusual for him. It almost feels like someone did something to him. Then I met on internet and I told him everything. First he asked me for my boyfriend photograph then he advised me some remedies and with in 4 days my boyfriend come back to me and first time he said sorry to me. I am very happy now
