Enough already. That’s the word from fans who are sick of hearing about Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s personal lives.

A petition is calling on reporters to stop interviewing the power couple, and had garnered more than 16,000 signatures on Friday.

Dexter Morales recently launched the petition, with the caption “Stop interviewing Will and Jada Smith!” The target was originally 15K signatures, but has now been bumped up to 25K.

The petition comes in the middle of Will’s media blitz promoting his memoir, YouTube series and new film King Richard. The interviews have focused heavily on Will and Jada’s nontraditional marriage, his mental health, and the challenges the superstar actor faced growing up with an abusive father. Smith also recently revealed he considered suicide at one point in his life.

Jada has her Facebook Watch series Red Table Talk and often discusses her personal (and sex) life on the show. In October, she talked about her sex journey with Will. Last year she told viewers she had “a nervous breakdown and also was suicidal.”

But fans say it’s too much information.

“Not everything has to be public knowledge,” G. Anastacio commented on the petition.

Added K.W., “Everything I learn about this couple is against my will. Free us.”

As Urban Hollywood 411 reported on Sunday, Nov. 21, King Richard opened to disappointing box office earnings. One film critic told us the near-constant headlines about Smith’s personal life likely took attention away from the film.

King Richard‘s poor box office performance can perhaps be somewhat attributed to Will Smith spending more time promoting his book rather than the movie,” said Shawn Edwards, a leading film critic and award-winning journalist for FOX 4 News in Kansas City, Missouri.

By the way, we saw King Richard and loved the film.
