The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air launched Will Smith to stardom in the early 90s, and fans took little time to resonate with his character, a fictionalized version of himself.

Fans Think Will Smith Is Doing Damage Control After Duane Martin S*xual Relationship Rumor

In recent years, the internet has come across different stories about Will Smith‘s relationship with Jada Pinkett Smith that has left his fans questioning the state of his marriage with the actress altogether. However, this week, there are a few fans who find themselves questioning the s–uality of the Bad Boys star in the aftermath of a huge claim from Brother Bilaal.

Bilaal, who claims to be a former friend/assistant to Smith, claimed in an interview with Tasha K that he saw Will in a compromising position with Duane Martin, stating:

“I opened the door to Duane’s dressing room and that’s when I see Duane having anal s-x with Will. There was a couch and Will was bent over the couch and Duane was standing up killing him, murdering him. It was murder in there.”


The Oscar-winning actor’s rep has been quick to deny this claim to TMZ, who add in their report that Smith is considering taking legal action. But this hasn’t stopped a few X users from sharing their bold opinions on the matter.

Only time will tell whether there’s any truth in Bilaal’s remarks or his story is a complete fabrication, but undoubtedly the rumor has led to unwanted camera flashes in the direction of the superstar, who can’t seem to catch a break.

The Focus actor, who was married to Sheree Zampino at the time, explained that he remained in character (Paul Poitier) even while off the set of the film. The excerpt from the memoir read (via PEOPLE):


“She’d married a guy named Will Smith and now she was living with a guy named Paul Poitier. And to make matters worse, during shooting I fell in love with Stockard Channing.”

Interestingly, his character Paul is a homosexual hustler, who charms a wealthy New York couple, in the engrossing drama.
