Earlier Tuesday, In Touch reported that the A-list pair had separated after 13 years of marriage, setting off rumors that Pinkett Smith had an affair with her recently single HawthoRNe co-star Marc Anthony. Pinkett Smith's rep and Anthony's rep have both denied the affair.
Smith's son, Trey, 19, from his first marriage, had also denied the separation multiple times on Twitter and implored his followers to retweet the message.
