Might Will and Jada call it a rap?

As Tinseltown marriages go, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett have been together since dinosaurs were but a twinkle in the eye of the universe, and seemed as solid as bedrock to boot.

They certainly weren't shy about proclaiming their deepest affections for each other in nauseating soundbites to the world's media. Pardon my dripping cynicism but, come on lads, get a room.

According to reports across the pond, things in said room have now gone sour and the Smiths' union may go the same way as the dinosaurs before it. Was it that 15 years of marriage had turned Will into more of a Stale Prince of Bel Air in Jada's eyes? Perhaps she tired of his "Big Willie Style"? Was he no longer able to "Boom! Shake the Room"? The list of reasons they may have reportedly split, which can neatly fit into clunky references to Will's often-embarrassing rap career, is longer than the space on this page and I won't embarrass a seemingly nice couple by reminding them of Will's pop-rap past.
