Jada Pinkett-Smith was spotted out and about in Beverly Hills, Calif., smiling for pictures and not wearing her wedding ring on Friday, Sept. 23.

Here we go again, marriage watchers: Jada Pinkett Smith has ventured into public without her wedding ring.

Let's be clear here, this isn't necessarily a sign of imminent divorce (even Kim Kardashian leaves home without her million-dollar bauble once in a while), but COME ON, JADA. When you're fresh off of a will-they-or-won't-they-divorce maelstrom, just wear the ring. No matter what. 

After a report that Jada and husband Will Smith were separating was published in August, the couple issued the following statement: "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."
