Well, it looks like its real. We hear that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are really moving with this divorce. According to The Huffington Post and In Touch Weekly, Jada has hired a prominent attorney to handle her divorce; Laura Wasser. If you recognize the name it’s probably because her name was mentioned several times in the press recently as Vaneesa Bryant just recently hired her to handle her case against her husband Kobe Bryant.

Despite denying divorce rumors back in August, it appears that Will and Jada Pinkett Smith may be finally going their separate ways — at least according to In Touch Weekly.
The magazine is reporting that Jada Smith recently met with celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, who has represented the likes of Britney Spears, Maria Shriver, and Kim Kardashian.
A source tells In Touch that Smith has “finally begun to take steps to dissolve their marriage,” even reportedly turning down a role in Keanu Reeves directorial debut to spend time with her kids during this “difficult time.”
The magazine first reported that Will and Jada had separated in August after 13 years of marriage. The pair issued a statement in response to the allegations: “Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false. We are still together, and our marriage is intact.”
The star couple have two kids, Jaden and Willow — whose careers were reportedly at the root of the Smiths’ marital problems — and Will Smith has one son from a previous marriage.
If Jada has indeed met with Wasser, she’ll be in good hands. Here are 10 other celebrities that Wasser has represented:
