Will Smith vehemently denies the recent gay rumors that have surfaced, following an explicit interview by his alleged former friend and ex-personal assistant, Brother Bilaal.
The 55-year-old Oscar-winner issued a statement through his representative on Tuesday, dismissing the claims as ‘unequivocally false.’
Bilaal shocked the public with his detailed allegations during an interview with Tasha K, asserting that he once walked in on Will Smith and actor Duane Martin engaged in a s*x act in Martin’s dressing room. According to Bilaal, he witnessed a graphic scene, describing it as Will being bent over a couch while Duane stood up, engaging in what he referred to as ‘murder’ in the room.
Not stopping at the explicit details, Bilaal made unflattering comments about Smith’s anatomy, likening it to the size of a ‘pinky toe.’
In response to these allegations, a spokesperson for Will Smith stated that the entire story was ‘completely fabricated,’ and there are considerations of legal action against those spreading the false claims.
Duane Martin, 58, known for his roles in L.A.’s Finest and All of Us, has a history of collaboration with Smith, including appearances on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air in the 1990s and the 2022 reboot Bel-Air.
Bilaal claimed that he was working on a Hollywood set and had been specifically instructed to keep an eye on Will Smith, leading up to the moment when he allegedly witnessed the intimate encounter. According to him, Smith’s car was present, but the actor was nowhere to be found, prompting producers to press him to locate and bring Smith back to the set.
In the midst of these allegations, Jada Pinkett Smith, Will’s wife of many years, recently disclosed that they have been secretly separated for seven years. Bilaal suggested that Will sought validation by being with Jada, describing her as ‘the woman that everybody wanted.’
Responding to a question from Tasha K about Jada’s remarks on Will’s anatomy, Bilaal insinuated that Will might not have met her expectations, using provocative language to express that satisfaction might be elusive if one is accustomed to something larger.
Following Jada’s public acknowledgment of their separation, Will Smith also commented on their relationship, acknowledging that her recent statements served as a wake-up call. He praised Jada’s resilience, cleverness, and compassion, indicating a deeper understanding of her qualities.
The Smiths’ marriage has long been a subject of rumors, including allegations of an open marriage, swinging, and both partners being secretly gay. Jada Pinkett Smith, in response to these speculations during an interview with Hoda Kotb, vehemently denied all accusations, stating that none of them were true.
The controversy surrounding Will Smith doesn’t end with the recent gay rumors. The actor faced significant backlash for slapping comedian Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars in response to a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head.
Smith later apologized on multiple occasions, resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and received a 10-year ban from the Oscars.
As the public navigates through the tumultuous details of Will Smith’s personal life, the actor continues to grapple with controversies that have brought his private struggles into the harsh spotlight of public scrutiny.
