The Duane Martin Will Smith affair rumors have been around for years. Although Will Smith has been married to actress Jada Pinkett Smith for about 16 years, some people have always believed there was way more to his friendship with actor Duane Martin. Duane is also married and his wife happens to be “Martin” star Tisha Campbell Martin. When Will’s camp isn’t shooting down rumors that his marriage is rocky and on the brink of ending in a divorce; Will is being speculated as being romantically interested in men. Will doesn’t seem to let the rumors of him having a secret sexuality and fondness for men get to him, and he claims he’s secure in his marriage and he’s not going to let the rumors bother him.
It appears that the Duane Martin Will Smith affair rumors have started to reappear again as it has been confirmed through a series of pictures that the best buds are currently having a blast together in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Interestingly enough, the friends were spotted hanging out with another tabloid favorite twosome: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
Kim posted a photo of the group having fun on the balcony of their hotel:
Of course, many people are speculating that Will and Duane are on some kind of romantic vacation with Kanye and Kim, but Will’s camp insists he and Duane are there for Carnival and they are said to have had a party with several other friends during their stay.
Regardless of the rumors, Tisha Campbell Martin doesn’t seem to be worried. She took to her Twitter account to tell her husband that she misses him while he parties in Brazil with bestie Will Smith:
Tisha has made it clear in the past that she and Duane are very good friends of the Smiths and all the rumors about them are “lies.” She also claimed she wished the media would stop attacking them.
While Tisha denied the rumors of any Will Smith Duane Martin affair, actress Lisa Raye didn’t help matters when she suggested that Duane was one of the reasons behind her divorce to former Turks & Caicos Premier Michael Misick.
She told Jet Magazine last year:
“I introduced him to my ex-husband [former Turks & Caicos Premier Michael Misick], he got buddy-buddy with him and then turned against me. Just recently, this fool Duane up and sold a building he and I bought awhile ago in Los Angeles, without asking…I don’t care if we’re not friends, just don’t try to f**k me in the interim.
“When I heard about him in the middle of Will & Jada’s divorce rumors, I tweeted: sounds familiar. He really ain’t got enough business.”
Anything’s possible but Lisa Ray’s comment has me giving these two the side eye…
GAY! A RUMOR THAT KEEPS RE-SURFACING HAS SOME TRUTH IN IT SOME PLACE.
I hear so many things about these two. Hopefully none of it is true.
So were Will & Duane staying in the same suite? LOL
Their friendship is kind of odd. But they don’t owe anyone else but their wives an explanation.
I really want to believe that these two aren’t gay. It’s just something about Duane that makes that hard to do though.
All I can say is Six Degrees of Seperation! Will played his “role” a little too good! IJS
D#@m..sometimes stupidity amazes me
All I can say is, whether its true or not, its their business, leave them alone!!!
why didn’t lisa raye add what she caught duane and her ex doing ??!! LOL
So when a group a guys go to vegas or two “buddies” go to Vegas should we just always assume they may be gay, guys party together simple as that, every girl goes through the “best” guy friend that gf’s get annoyed about, even wives. So if they were regular people we wouldn’t take their fun time out of context and twist it to they are gay.
A lot of times people want to see the worst of any situation,I don’t believe that rumor is true!Unless their is proof to be seen,you can never believe what you hear!My thing is that they talked about Jesus a lot and it wasn’t true!Don’t believe the hype,their is always somebody that ones to talk about someone else that doesn’t make it true!!!!
