Jada Pinkett Smith's Hawthorne Canceled—Was Marc Anthony to Blame?

Jada Pinkett-Smith just can't seem to catch a break.

Amid rumors of marriage troubles with Will Smith and tales of the Hawthorne star hooking up behind-the-scenes with costar Marc Anthony, her show has been given the ax.

"TNT has decided not to order a fourth season of Hawthorne," TNT confirmed to E! News in a statement. "TNT truly appreciates the tremendous dedication of everyone involved in Hawthorne. The series gave TNT the opportunity to work with many outstanding people, including Jada Pinkett Smith and the rest of the show's talented cast, crew, producers and writers. We wish everyone involved with Hawthorne nothing but the best."

The hospital drama starred Pinkett Smith as a nurse at a Virgina hospital—hence the "RN" capitalization in the show's official title.

"I want to say thank you to all the fans for being Hawthorne soldiers," the actress wrote on her blog. "All our facebook fans...twitter soldiers and viewers...you held us down. Of course you know there is more to come...believe it!

No word on whether that "more to come" refers to an answer to the who-shot-Nick? season three-ending cliffhanger (doubtful) or the star's career (more likely).

News of Hawthorne's cancellation comes on the heels of speculation (we're looking at you, Life & Style) that Anthony's separation from Jennifer Lopez had something to do with an affair with Jada, and that that relationship was also stirring up trouble in Pinkett Smith's marriage.

Anthony recently shut down that story when he appeared on Nightline, however, calling the rumors "laughable."

"We were laughing, like ‘Wow'," Anthony said in the interview with ABC News' John Quinones. "We've been friends for years. Jada, Jennifer, me, him, for years…"

Pinkett Smith's publicist also said there was no truth to the rumor (after Will and Jada slammed separation rumors), saying, "Everything about the Marc Anthony story is completely false."

Yeah, we think the choice had something more to do with bad ratings (down more than 3 million from season two) as opposed to bad publicity or bad on-set vibes.

In any case, we sure hope things take a turn for the better for Jada soon.
