Another day, another rumor of Hollywood powerhouse couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith headed for the dreaded D word: Divorce. This time, however, news was taken with a bleak seriousness that had fans were lamenting the end of one of the celebrity world's most enduring couples. While we all ponder if indeed the Smith's union is headed for splitsville, we present Will's and Jada's 10 most memorable moments
Amid swarming rumors that the power couple were yet again headed for divorce, Will and Jada put on a very loving and bold display of PDA during the Black Girls Rock event this past March. Let's just say the sensual pair didn't leave much to the imagination.
For two huge, bombastic personalities, Will Smith's and Jada Pinkett's walk down the aisle was quite traditional. For their headline-grabbing December 31, 1997 nuptials, the two stars tied the knot at Jada's hometown of Baltimore at the Cloisters Mansion, both dressed in white.

Will Drops It Like It's Hot
One striking appeal of the Will/Jada dynamic has always been their unapologetic silliness. So when they took over hosting duties for the 2005 installment of the BET Awards the duo pulled out all the stops. Tops among the highlights: Will Smith's over-the-top, impromptu lap dance on his wife. Fun times.
Oprah Meets The Smiths
Before gracefully bowing out, the Oprah Winfrey Show was the place where celebrities were expected to give up the goods. Indeed, it was quite the treat to witness the usually unfazed Jada blush when asked by the former talk show queen turned media mogul billionaire how she keeps the fire burning in her relationship with her Fresh Prince hubby during a 2011 taping. Even a very young and ridiculously cute Jaden and Willow appeared on the episode cranking up the awwww!!! level up to 11.
For his Oscar nominated performance as larger-the-life boxing icon Muhammad Ali, Will Smith shared the screen for a brief moment with his significant other in the 2001 Michael Mann biopic. Jada Pinkett-Smith played the Champ's first wife Sonji Roi, who found herself in a stormy marriage with the genius pugilist.
We Are Family
When Will Smith's son Tre celebrated his 22nd birthday in Las Vegas, the November 2014 blowout was truly a blended family affair. Celebrating alongside the inspiration behind the 1997 hit "Just the Two Of Us" was Jada, Will and Tre's mother/Fresh Prince's ex-wife Sheree Fletcher. All love.
Once A Fan, Always A Fan
Big Willie is a Philadelphia 76ers fanatic. In May of 2012, the B-ball aficionado was seen courtside snuggled up next to a beaming Jada. Those smiles never left the couple, even when the Sixers lost.
The Kids Are Alright
Like any proud parents, Will and Jada are unabashed, supportive, and rabid cheerleaders for their children. During Willow's 2010 performance of her breakout anthem "Whip My Hair," the entire Smith clan was rooting her on. At times it looked like Will and Jada were having more fun than a dancing Jaden and his swaggering, girl-power sister.
Now THIS Is A Birthday Card
Last year when Jada celebrated her 43rd birthday, Will kept it sweet and goofy. His proclamation of love? A very cheesy, smile-inducing recreation of a throwback picture of the twosome from some 20 years ago in a Dancing With The Stars embrace. Cute.
