LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Will Smith has hit back at allegations he was the target of a “smear campaign” after his former assistant, brother Bilaal, said he caught the actor having sex with his friend Duane Martin in a dressing room.
The 55-year-old star previously called the allegations “unequivocally false” and said he was considering suing Bilaal, who he has known for 40 years, for trying to tarnish his reputation.
