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.”
