Cardi B Defends Will Smith Over Duane Martin Affair Rumors
Cardi B stood up for Will Smith amid rumors of an affair with Duane Martin. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper came to Smith’s defense and criticized gossip blogger Tasha K. The podcaster posted an interview with Bilaal, a supposed ex-friend/assistant of the actor, who alleges he saw both stars having sex.
In a Nov. 15 Instagram live video, Cardi B weighed in on the interview, saying, “I don’t like what people be doing to Will Smith.” She added, “I be feeling like Will Smith is very unproblematic and I feel like he has a nice heart, and that’s the thing. I found out that Will Smith is a Libra…Libras, we be getting tried, we be getting tried, and then when we outburst we outburst so f–king heavy that we become the ones in the wrong.”
Cardi also referenced her own legal battle with Tasha K, who owes the Grammy winner about $4 million in a defamation judgment. She said she now realizes “some people just never change.” As for Smith, his team has denied the affair rumor. A rep told TMZ the accusation is “unequivocally false.”
Jada Pinkett Smith revealed that the couple will be taking legal action against Bilaal. “It’s ridiculous and it’s nonsense,” she said. “And this a person that tried a money shakedown that didn’t work. We’re going to take legal action because it’s one thing to have your opinion about somebody versus just making up salacious, malicious stories. That’s actionable so we gonna roll with that.”
