Jada Pinkett Smith on ‘Ridiculous’ Claim of Will Smith Having Sex With Duane Martin: ‘We Suing’


Asked to elaborate on the alleged “shakedown” at the center of the claims, Jada said it stems from Will’s recently released memoir.

“It’s based around this person’s idea that they, in some way, were doing business around Will’s book, and that they spent money or what-have-you, and that they needed to be compensated,” she said. “So he already tried to do this money shakedown. Will was willing to give him a certain amount, and he didn’t take it. So this whole situation is based on that.”

Still, Jada added, Will was able to “find the funny” in the situation.

In a separate clip, this time captured by a TMZ paparazzo, Jada could be seen offering a more succinct take on the claims.

“We suing,” she told the camera, as seen below.
