Will Smith has fired back at the accusations made by his former assistant.

Recently, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actor's ex-assistant, Brother Bilaal, made some claims during an interview with controversial internet personality, Tasha K.

Bilaal alleged that he witnessed the 55-year-old Academy-award winner having an intimate relationship with fellow actor Duane Martin, who also appeared on the hit 90s sitcom in 1993 and 1995.

"I opened the door to Duane’s dressing room and that’s when I see Duane having sex with Will," he alleged in the interview that has since gone viral on X, formerly known as Twitter.

A representative for the Men in Black actor staunchly denied the accusations to TMZ, stating: "This story is completely fabricated and the claim is unequivocally false."

A source told the outlet that Smith is also considering taking legal action following Bilaal's remarks.

The actor's relationship has been the focus of a lot of attention as of late. The actor married his now-estranged wife Jada Pinkett Smith in 1997 and they share two children, Jaden, 25, and Willow, 22. He also has a son, Trey, 30, from his first marriage.

Last month, the 52-year-old Red Table Talk host stunned the world when she revealed that she and Smith had been secretly separated for seven years in her new memoir titled, Worthy.

According to Pinkett Smith, she and the actor have been on separate paths since 2016. This means that at the time of the infamous 2022 Oscars incident, where Smith confronted comedian Chris Rock for a joke about Pinkett Smith's shaved head, they were living separately.

The Girls Trip actress divulged more about her relationship with Smith in an interview with Today Show's Hoda Kotb back in October, and said: "By the time we got to 2016 we were just exhausted with trying."

"I think we were both kind of just still stuck in our fantasy of what we thought the other person should be," she continued. "I made a promise that there will never be a reason for us to get a divorce. We will work through whatever. And I just haven't been able to break that promise."

In the same interview with Kotb, Pinkett Smith was asked about the longtime rumors swirling around the Hollywood couple and denied all the allegations.

"You and Will probably have more rumors about you and talk about you than others," Kotb said, as cited by Daily Mail. "They’re in an open marriage, they’re swingers, he's gay, she's gay. I mean a million things were out there. What, if anything, is true and did hearing all that stuff bother you?"

"No," Pinkett Smith replied. "You know, that’s part of it. I would say that none of that’s true. I definitely can understand why there’d be misunderstandings, but none of it’s true."
