Hollywood star claims Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith are actually gay
Famous transgender actress Alexis Arquette has made headlines with sensational claims Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are gay - and they are using each other as beards.
Whoa. So this is a pretty sweeping claim.
Alexis Arquette, who you may recognise from The Wedding Singer, has made claims that Will Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, are gay, and that Smith paid off his first wife after she walked in on him with another man.
Will was married to Sheree Zampino until they split in 1995 - they had one child together - Trey.
“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 … then I will listen to them,” Arquette wrote on Facebook the other day - the post has since been deleted.
“‘She’ being his FIRST Wife. Paid off, silent.”
In 1997, Will and Jada got married.
“Will threw a fit on the set of [Six Degrees of Separation] when he was required by the scene to kiss Anthony Rapp,” Arquette wrote.
“He persuaded the director to shoot the back of his head in frame. Blocking the non existent lip lock entirely. … him. Gays have enemies. They lurk in gilded closets. Outing is healthy. You are either with or against us. You decide. Today.”
The Smiths are getting a grilling from all angles this week, after Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actress Janet Hubert slammed them for kicking up a stink about an lack of racial diversity amongst the Oscar nominees.
“There’s lots of s**t going on in the world that you all don’t seem to recognise,” Hubert said. “People are dying. Our boys are being shot left and right. People are starving. People are trying to pay bills. And you’re talking about some … actors and Oscars. It’s just ain’t that deep.”
It’s been a quiet year for Jada and Will - is it a case of any publicity is good publicity for the couple right now?
