Will Smith Blasts Claim of Gay Sex with Duane Martin

Kilian Melloy READ TIME: 1 MIN.

Will Smith came out swinging against the claim by a former assistant who said he caught the star having gay sex with a guest actor on Smith's sitcom "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air."

"In a statement to TMZ, a representative for Smith said that the story was 'completely fabricated' and 'unequivocally false,'" UK newspaper the Evening Standard reported.

"The Oscar-winning actor spoke out after an interview with a man claiming to be Smith's former personal assistant, Brother Bilaal, went viral on TikTok," the news report continued. "Chatting to influencer Tasha K to promote his book, 'Will Smith Demonic Circle,' which is slated for release on December 6, Bilaal claimed that he once walked in on Smith having a sexual encounter in his dressing room with former 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' co-star Martin, who appeared in a handful of episodes of the hit comedy series back in the 1990s."

"I opened the door to Duane's dressing room and that's when I see Duane having anal sex with Will," TMZ quoted Brother Bilaal saying. "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."

That wasn't the only tea Brother Bilaal purported to spill. The alleged former assistant "also made unsubstantiated claims about Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's sex life and alleged that the 'Men In Black' star's wife had made demands that all staff working for the couple check into rehab," UK tabloid The Sun reported.

TMZ reported that "a source close to the situation" said Smith "is considering taking legal action following Bilaal's remarks."
