Will Smith has slammed allegations that he is having a homosexual relationship with US actor Duane Martin.
The ‘Independence Day’ star, whose marriage to Jada Pinkett-Smith is said to be on the rocks denied the rumours that he is gay but a source told Star Magazine that their burgeoning relationship is causing problems at home.
A source revealed: “Will spends significantly more time with Duane than he does with Jada and the kids.”
The insider went on to claim that Jada Pinkett Smith is jealous of how close her husband is to the All Of Us actor: “[She] can’t stand Will’s relationship with Duane. “She feels like Will flaunts it in her face, taking him on exotic vacations while she’s sitting home alone.”
When asked about their friendship, 46 year-old Duane who is also married said: “I’m not going to defend myself against a gay rumor.”
This is not the first time that speculation has surrounded the ‘Men In Black’ star’s sexuality. In 2008 a Hollywood madam claimed she set the actor up with a male prostitute.
According to The International Business Times she told blogger Ian Halperin: “I had to reassure him over and over that I could guarantee discretion.”
“Once I convinced him I could, he placed his order. It was for a man.”
Last month the ‘Ali’ star’s daughter, singer Willow Smith, posted cryptic tweets about how miserable she was, sparking rumours that her parent’s marriage was close to a break down.
