Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are vehemently dismissing a recent scandalous rumor circulating on the internet. In an exclusive clip from an upcoming interview with The Breakfast Club, Jada addresses the salacious tale about her husband, Will Smith, and fellow actor Duane Martin.
The rumor originated from a clip in which a former friend of Will’s, Brother Bilaal, claimed to have witnessed both Will and Duane engaged in a compromising act. Jada describes the story as “ridiculous” during the interview, emphasizing that it is baseless and nonsensical.
Jada further reveals that the individual behind the rumor attempted a failed money shakedown. In response to these false allegations, the Smiths are taking legal action, emphasizing that it goes beyond having an opinion about someone and crosses into the realm of fabricating malicious and actionable stories.
The rep for Will Smith confirmed to TMZ that Bilaal’s story is “unequivocally false,” and there is contemplation of pursuing legal measures. As of the latest update, Duane Martin has not issued any comments on the situation.
This revelation came from a sneak peek of The Breakfast Club’s upcoming interview with Jada Pinkett Smith, focusing on her memoir titled “Worthy” and various intriguing topics.
The complete interview is set to be released on Thursday morning at 7 a.m. The unfolding developments highlight the Smiths’ commitment to confronting baseless rumors and taking legal action against those spreading false narratives.
LET ME JUST SAY THIS: IT’S RIDICULOUS AND IT’S NONSENSE,” SHE REPLIED. “AND THIS A PERSON THAT TRIED A MONEY SHAKEDOWN THAT DIDN’T WORK. WE’RE GOING TO TAKE LEGAL ACTION BECAUSE IT’S ONE THING TO HAVE YOUR OPINION ABOUT SOMEBODY VERSUS JUST MAKING UP SALACIOUS, MALICIOUS STORIES. THAT’S ACTIONABLE SO WE GONNA ROLL WITH THAT.”
