In celeb years, a 4-year marriage is more like 8, and a ten year marriage is more like a lifetime, which is why you hate to hear stories of Will and Jada possibly splitting. Well, Jada recently came forward to set the record straight about any impending divorce.

During a recent interiew Will's wifey explained the couple spends so much time apart because of their hectic work schedule and that she hopes the separation stories will soon die down.
"Every year, a celebrity couple is on the radar. This year, unluckily, it's us! I almost want to say that we should have been expecting it," she told Gala France. "But Will and I know the truth. We are waiting peacefully for when the storm ends." "These rumors are completely untrue. I'm traveling a lot because of my work, as Will does. And the fact that I'm accompanying our daughter, Willow, on her trips, while Will spends time with our son, Jaden, doesn't make things easier."(Bossip)
She went on to add that they strive to keep as normal of a life as possible.
"But our way of living hasn't changed. Before the children, we were already away from each other quite often because of our work. In general, Will and I take two months of holiday, at the end of the year. Right after Thanksgiving, we shut down the curtain and nothing comes to bother our family life until January."(WENN)
Cool to see Jada address it in such a classy way. SOHH Watcha Think: Do celeb couples owe it to their fans to keep them in the loop regarding their love lives? Ri-Ri doesn't think so apparently. Not too long ago, Rihanna ended an interview after being asked about her love life. Check out the vid below:
Well d*mn. Guess some things are better left untouched.
In other news ... gotta love Obama. After calling Yeezy a jackass a while back, he's still down to admit the G.O.O.D. Music boss is a talented fellow, even though he picks Jigga as the better MC.
President Barack Obama enjoyed a boost from the Hip Hop community during his 2008 presidential campaign, and has long been linked with Jay-Z, as well as other Hip Hop artists. Prior to a pair of fundraisers, an interviewer for theatlantic.com managed to ask the President which emcee from The Throne he prefers: Kanye West or Jay-Z. "Jay-Z," replied the President, before adding, "Although I like Kanye. He's a Chicago guy. Smart. He's very talented." "Even though you called him a jackass?" asked the interviewer, citing a 2009 incident in which the President was caught on camera having some harsh words for Kanye after he took the spotlight from Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards. "He is a jackass," retorted Obama, who added with a wink, "But he's talented."(HHDX)
