Los Angeles: Hollywood couple Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett have denied getting divorced, calling the rumours "foolish".

There were speculations that the couple, who have two kids together, were heading for a split after almost 20 years of marriage.

Will, 46, posted a denial on Facebook, adressing his wife as "queen." He also joked about those, who sent him their condolences after asuming the rumours were true.

"Under normal circumstances, I don't usually respond to foolishness. (Because it's contagious) But, so many people have extended me their "deepest condolences" that I figured - "What the hell... I can be foolish, too!"

"So, in the interest of redundant, repetitious, over & over-again-ness... Jada and I are... NOT GETTING A DIVORCE!!!!! I promise you all - if I ever decide to divorce my Queen - I SWEAR

I'll tell you myself! ?#?Dumb? People Should Have to Wear Scarlet D's," he tweeted.

Jada Pinkett's tweet followed a few minutes later. "My king has spoken," she wrote.

The couple married in 1997 and has been plagued by rumors in the past.
