The couple — who have been married for 17 years — were spotted on a beach in Hawaii getting all lovey-dovey while on vacation.
Jada, 42, was snapped holding hands and sneaking smooches with her 45-year-old husband, giggling and twirling about. They seem very happy and in love.
Of course, one has to wonder if it’s for real or if the knowledge of lurking paparazzi may have caused a little creative staging for the very purpose of dispelling a slew of recent rumors and allegations against the family.
Those rumors of marital difficulties and another scandal surrounding daughter Willow may be a very good reason for the family to get away for a bit and enjoy time together.

The Willow scandal broke last month when photos of the 13-year-old lying on a bed with her shirtless friend, Moises Arias, 20, emerged on social media. Many questioned the appropriateness of their relationship considering he is an adult and she is a minor.

“Here’s the deal,” said Jada after the incident blew up. “There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation. You guys are projecting your trash onto it. You’re acting like covert pedophiles and that’s not cool.”
Apparently child protective services are putting the incident behind them as well.
“There has been no evidence presented that Willow has ever been in any danger around Moises, or that she has ever been physically or emotionally abused,” a source told Radar. “It’s likely the investigation will remain open for the next two weeks out of an abundance of caution, with no findings of reprimand against Will and Jada. Willow is a very well adjusted, smart, and articulate young lady.”
Jada’s unconventional upbringing has had tongues wagging for years.
In 2012, Jada addressed another scandal when her parenting was called into question after Willow shaved her head.
“The question why I would let Willow cut her hair, first the let must be challenged,” Jada wrote on Facebook. “This is a world where women [and] girls are constantly reminded that they don’t belong to themselves — that their bodies are not their own, nor their power or self-determination. I made a promise to endow my little girl with the power to always know that her body, spirit and her mind are her domain.”
The young teen has also had an unconventional education.
“I never really get to go to school because I am always on tour or with my father,” she said in 2010. “There is a tutor most of the time, but usually I am working so I never get to do the lessons. The worst thing about math is all the kids are ahead of me because they go to school.”
