Actor Will Smith has been having a rough two years after a recent allegation surfaced of him having a relationship with actor Duane Martin. The allegations came from his old assistant Brother Bilaal, who revealed in an interview with YouTuber Tasha K that he had seen the two actors he had walked in on the two actors having s*x.
Smith has denied the allegations and will reportedly take legal action. His lawyers stated that Smith was concentrating on his film projects and that he was hurt by the smear campaign launched by his old friend.
Allegations Against Will Smith
Will Smith has made headlines multiple times in the past two years. The Men in Black actor first came under fire for his infamous talk-show episode with his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, where she revealed to the world that she had an ‘entanglement’ with rapper August Alsina. The Internet was quick to make many memes and have opinions on the incident.
He then came under fire for his Oscar slap to Chris Rock, after which he won the Best Actor Academy Award. The incident shocked the world and resulted in Smith being banned from the ceremony for ten years. The actor was in the news again earlier this year when Pinkett Smith revealed that they had been separated for six months.
Recently, Will Smith’s old friend and assistant Brother Bilaal made a shocking reveal that he had walked in on Smith and his The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air co-star Duane Martin. He mentioned in a now-viral interview with YouTuber Tasha K,
“I opened the door to Duane’s dressing room and that’s when I see Duane having a*al s*x with Will. There was a couch and Will was bent over on the couch and Duane was standing up killing him, murdering him – it was murder in there.”
The news took the internet by storm as the Independence Day star was accused of being a homosexual, amidst rumors of separation from his wife.
Will Smith Believes He Is Part Of A Smear Campaign
Will Smith immediately denied the allegations and called them ‘unequivocally false’. Smith was defended by his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, who claimed that they would be suing Brother Bilaal for his statements.
Smith’s lawyers issued a statement to the Daily Mail saying that the actor was hurt following the statements by his old friend and denied the allegations yet again. They said,
“Will is focused on his forthcoming movie and charitable projects but is considering all legal options as he suspects he is the target of a smear campaign…He’s exploring all legal options. Will believes the allegation is ludicrous and is hurt that a former friend would turn on him in this way.”
Smith appeared along with Duane Martin in the show The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, where they starred together in one episode. Martin also appeared in the reimagined TV series Bel-Air and was a recurring cast member for one season. The two have been seen in public together multiple times.
