Is Will Smith Gay? The Truth Behind The Rumors

Will Smith‘s relationship with actor Duane Martin has long been a subject of speculation, with persistent rumors suggesting a romantic connection between them. Despite years of speculation, neither Smith nor Martin has explicitly addressed these rumors, and there has been no substantial evidence supporting the claims, aside from photos capturing them together at various events and vacations.

Recently, the rumors took a more sensational turn when Brother Bilaal, a man who purportedly identifies as a former friend or assistant to Will Smith, made serious allegations. In an interview with controversial podcaster Tasha K, Brother Bilaal claimed that he walked in on Smith and Martin engaged in anal sex.

Bilaal says, “I opened the door to Duane’s dressing room and that’s when I see Duane having anal sex with Will.” He continues, “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.”

The allegations made headlines and created a shock wave among entertainment fans with many doubting the authenticity of the story. As the rumors continue to run wild, Smith’s team has quickly denied the allegations. A rep for the famous actor tells TMZ, “This story is completely fabricated and the claim is unequivocally false.” 


They also say Smith is exploring legal actions following Bilaal’s remarks.

This isn’t the first time Smith’s sexuality has been called into question. His first marriage to Sheree Zampino reportedly ended when Sheree discovered him in bed with another man, and she was allegedly paid to keep the incident confidential. According to the late Alexis Arquette, Smith was romantically involved with former music executive Benny Medina.

“When Jada comes out as gay and her beard husband admits his marriage ended when she walked in on him servicing his sugar daddy Benny Medina… then I will listen to them,” she wrote in a since deleted Facebook post. 

Smith’s second marriage with Jada Pinkett has been the focus of a lot of attention as of late. The “Set It Off” actress stunned the world last month when she revealed she and Smith had been separated and living completely separate lives since 2016 in her new book.

The Hancock star is the father of three children. His eldest son, Trey Smith, was born in 1992, from his previous marriage to Sheree Zampino. Jaden Smith, born in 1998, and Willow Smith, born in 2000, are his children with his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

As for Duane, his sexuality has also been a topic of discussion. The actor, who finalized his divorce from Tisha Campbell in 2020 has faced accusations of contributing to the dissolution of marriages. Lisa Raye, for instance, claims that her marriage fell apart after introducing Duane to her husband, asserting that Duane and her husband became “buddy buddies.”

“When I introduced them, that was the worst thing I ever did,” Lisa said. 

Despite the recent allegations from Brother Bilaal, Duane Martin has not responded to the claims about his involvement with Will Smith or any other accusations
