Los Angeles: Musician Marc Anthony has laughed off rumors of a relationship with Will Smith's wife Jada Pinkett.

“When something like that happens, it's laughable. We've been friends for years. Jada, Jennifer, me, Will Smith, for years,” he said.

Anthony, who recently parted ways with wife Jennifer Lopez, says people are trying to sensationalize his split.

“People are trying to peg it on things because it was so shocking. It was like, it must have been something,” he says about the end of his seven-year marriage.
