LOS ANGELES, Aug. 4 (UPI) -- Will Smith took to Facebook Monday to bury rumors of his and Jada Pinkett Smith's divorce once and for all.
The 46-year-old Suicide Squad actor and 43-year-old Magic Mike XXL actress married in 1997 and have weathered several false reports from gossip publications of their split.
"Under normal circumstances, I don't usually respond to foolishness. (Because it's contagious)," Smith wrote on his verified Facebook page. "But, so many people have extended me their 'deepest condolences' that I figured - 'What the hell... I can be foolish, too!'"
Without missing a beat, the former rapper continued to -- "in the interest of redundant, repetitious, over & over-again-ness" -- proclaim that he and his wife are, in fact, not filing for divorce.
"I promise you all," he added, "if I ever decide to divorce my Queen - I SWEAR I'll tell you myself!"
Soon after the post, which received over 500,000 likes, Jada Pinkett Smith took to Twitter to support her husband. "My king has spoken," the mother of Willow Smith and Jaden Smith wrote.
The latest divorce rumors can be linked to reports claiming that the Smith's have been facing difficulties in their marriage for some time. According to an anonymous source, "it's only a matter of time until the couple announce that their 17-year marriage is officially over."
In June, Pinkett Smith reacted to previous rumors of divorce, denying their truthfulness and expressing her love for her family. "Will and I love each other so much," she said ahead of the Magic Mike XXL premier. "Our family and our relationship is so important."
"You would think that people would be rooting for you to stay together, not to break up," she said. "If people can go to sleep at night creating those stories, then hey, have it. Just so you know, we're not getting a divorce...again!"
