A day after Tasha K and Brother Bilaal’s shocking claims went viral, a rep for Will Smith slammed the rumors in a statement to TMZ. “This story is completely fabricated and the claim is unequivocally false,” they told the news outlet. As of this writing, Duane Martin has yet to comment on Bilaal’s statements. At the time of the report, a source told TMZ that Smith was considering taking legal action against Bilaal and Tasha K. However, on November 15, Jada Pinkett Smith seemingly confirmed the news when the outlet caught up with her in New York City. “We suin’,” the “Girls Trip” star exclaimed after paparazzi asked for a statement.
This isn’t the first time that rumors have surfaced about Smith’s sexuality. Back in 2016, the late Alexis Arquette accused the “King Richard” star and Pinkett Smith of being gay in now-deleted Facebook posts. “When Jada comes out as gay and her beard husband admits his first marriage ended when she walked in to him … servicing his Sugar Daddy Benny Medina,” she wrote, per Page Six. The rumors of the Smiths having an open marriage have also sparked speculation. While they’ve continued to circulate over the years Pinkett Smith has remained steadfast in denying the claims. During her October 2023 sit down with Hoda Kotb of Today, the “Collateral” star said. “I would say that none of that’s true. I definitely can understand why there’d be misunderstandings. But none of it’s true.”
