Radio presenter Charlamagne tha God brought up Pinkett Smith’s “No Soccer Mom” chapter, in which she confronts allegations that have dogged her marriage—the couple has been married since 1997—about being swingers or gay, during their discussion of her new memoir Worthy.
The Girls Trip actress was questioned by Charlamagne in 2023 how it feels to have some of “those same rumors out about people you love like Will and Duane” still circulating. DJ Envy, the co-host of Breakfast Club, continued, saying that the rumor about Smith and Martin “just came out.”
“All I have to say is this,” Pinkett Smith started. “I know it’s absurd, right? And it is absurd.
In a recent interview with Unwine With Tasha K on Wednesday, a man going by the name of Brother Bilal claimed that he had witnessed Smith and Martin, 58, having sex years prior.
Pinkett Smith criticized Bilal by saying, “And this is a person that tried a shakedown, a money shakedown that didn’t work.”
“We’re going to file a lawsuit,” she declared. “Because having a personal opinion about someone is one thing, but fabricating false, vile tales is quite another.” That is therefore actionable. We’re going to roll with that, then.
