Hours following the startling tabloid reports of their break-up, “Men in Black” star and wife Jada Pinkett Smith rebuffed rumors that they’re ending their 13-year marriage.

“Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false,” the Smiths told Us Weekly. “We are still together, and our marriage is intact.”

In Touch Weekly reported Tuesday that the celebrity couple, known for being a stable Hollywood pair, had decided to split. (MORE: Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith reportedly split)

TMZ later contacted Pinkett Smith’s rep, who claimed to know nothing about the supposed divorce.

“What? In Touch said that? I know nothing about this … Lord. I’m going back to bed,” the rep told the celeb news site.

Pinkett Smith and Smith met on the set of “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air” and married in 1997. They have two children together and Pinkett Smith is stepmother of the actor’s son Trey from a previous marriage.

Trey Smith addressed the buzz about his father via Twitter on Tuesday with the tweet, “Let me just say.. the rumors need to stop. Will and Jada aren’t getting divorced, #ItsAllLies.”

    ..So what’s new!?  It is just the ‘Hollywood mentality:’  Bedding as many as one can.  I would not be surprise, if there were study, years from now, showing all Hollywood born are each others brothers and sisters.

    Simply a matter of time.  Demi & Bruce said the same thing.. along with dozens of others.

    If there is a rumor, it is probably true. Say goodbye to the marriage of two of the most insufferable people in Hollywood.

      For one, I’m not Mrs. Donovan. That would be my mother. I’m not married, so you can call me Miss or Ms. I’m quite happy with my job and have no intention of changing my content, but thanks for the suggestion. :)

    Say it ain’t so.  It’s good to have one or two Hollywood couples who manage to work through marriage and stay together, and to be a role model, not only to their own children, but others.
