Will Smith reacts to ‘gay’ rumours
Hollywood actor Will Smith has dismissed allegations of an affair with his former co-star from ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,’ Duane Martin, following accusations made by an alleged former assistant claiming to have witnessed them in a compromising situation.
A spokesperson for the acclaimed actor vehemently refuted the claims, labeling them as entirely false and fabricated. Speaking to TMZ, the representative asserted, “This story is completely fabricated, and the claim is unequivocally false.”
The controversy gained traction after an interview featuring Brother Bilaal, who asserted that he served as a personal assistant to Will Smith. Bilaal recounted an incident during the Hollywood Hurry Up and Wait game where he purportedly walked in on Smith and Martin engaged in an intimate act in Martin’s dressing room. The interview went viral, sparking widespread speculation and debate.
In response to these allegations, sources close to Will Smith revealed his intention to pursue legal action against Bilaal.
The friendship between Smith and Martin spans decades, originating from their initial meeting on the set of ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ in 1993. Their professional association continued with their joint appearance in ‘Six Degrees of Separation’ that same year. Despite their enduring camaraderie, misconceptions have occasionally arisen, erroneously portraying their close bond as something romantic or more than just a friendship.
Both Will Smith and Duane Martin embarked on marriages with their respective spouses, Jada Pinkett Smith and Tisha Campbell, after their initial encounter. Notably, speculation surrounding Smith and Martin gained traction following Campbell’s filing for divorce from Martin in 2020. However, it’s important to highlight that there’s no substantial evidence supporting the alleged affair between Smith and Martin.
The public’s interest in this narrative stems not only from the alleged incident itself but also from the stature and public personas of those involved. The actor’s swift and categorical denial, coupled with his intent to pursue legal recourse, reflects his commitment to addressing and debunking these rumors.
