Will Smith and Duane Martin’s Close Friendship Ignites Gay Rumors
First there were rumors that Jada Pinkett Smith had a man on the side, and now sources claim that her husband does. According to Star magazine (via Hollywood Life), Will Smith’s friendship with fellow actor Duane Martin has come between him and his wife.
There has been a lot of speculation in the past about whether or not Duane is gay. The former All of Us actor and his wife Tisha denied the rumors back in 2007, but Will and Duane’s close relationship has raised eyebrows lately.
“Will spends significantly more time with Duane than he does with Jada and the kids,” says a source. Over the past few months, they traveled to Miami and Las Vegas together, and also went on a private cruise in Trinidad.
An eyewitness claimed that they dined with others at Flair restaurant in Trinidad on February 24, but that “it was clear Will and Duane both arrived and left together.” Another source asserted that Jada hates that Will is “taking him on exotic vacations while she’s sitting home alone.” She “can’t stand [his] relationship with Duane” and feels that he “flaunts it in her face.”
An insider shared that their marriage is “completely fractured” and all the time that Will spends with Duane is making it “worse.” Apparently, “it’s only a matter of time until one of them makes the split official and files for divorce.”
We don’t know what to believe. Can’t two guys hang out without people assuming they’re putting the romance in bromance?
